Small Ship Cruises To Dubrovnik
Cruises to Dubrovnik are more popular than ever, thanks in part to the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” with many of its medieval buildings used as filming sites in the show. But it holds its own when it comes to spectacular destinations, a UNESCO-protected city with glistening marble streets and magnificent historic architecture enclosed by ancient walls. While there are many different cruise options that will bring you to this “Pearl of the Adriatic,” some of the favorite itineraries depart from Split, bringing the chance to experience its historic emblem, the 4th-century Diocletian’s Palace and its palm-lined Riva promenade along the seafront. In between, you might visit the islands of Mljet, Korcula, Hvar and unspoiled Vis, as well as the waterfalls of Krka National Park. A guided boat tour to the famed Blue Cave is possible too – a magical experience, becoming illuminated in a surreal shade of blue when conditions are right.
