Dalmatian Island Explorer

Cruising coastal Croatia and Montenegro from Dubrovnik to Split, Trogir, Kotor & the islands of the Dalmatian coast

Cruise the Adriatic through the islands, islets and reefs of the Dalmatian coast. With its unique natural beauty matched with masterful architecture, each island and port has its own place in history, perhaps as a site of a battle, home to a fascinating church or palace, or inspiration for poets or artists.

In its golden years, Dubrovnik was a significant rival to Venetian supremacy. Facing the Adriatic from its well-known fortified walls, it is a unique open-air museum.

On the island of Mljet, St. Mary monastery lies on a picturesque salt lake in a National Park. Nearby Korcula, considered the birthplace of Marco Polo, the cathedral of St. Mark is an architectural masterpiece with styles from Gothic to Renaissance. Šibenik is a medieval town with impressive waterfall cascades close by in the Krka National Park. Offshore, tight little coves hide secret sand beaches on the shores of Vis; Hvar’s marina brings mariners and modernity to a town crowned by a medieval castle and adorned with baroque balconies.

The complete ensemble places simple pleasures in a sophisticated setting.
