Islands and Cities of Dalmatia Overview

Step aboard for a seven-night small-ship cruise holiday from the harbour town of Dubrovnik. You will head north-west to some of the most beautiful islands and towns in Croatia, such as Hvar, Korčula and Pomena. Sailing from one charming spot to another, basking in the sun out on the deck and enjoying a swim will make this a holiday to remember.

The Croatian islands that are dotted along the Adriatic Coast are home to beautiful beaches, secluded coves and charming towns and villages. You will sail from the ancient and beautiful town of Dubrovnik to a variety of islands and towns filled with history, culture and beauty. The pace of this Croatia cruise holiday is relaxed and you are free to sit back and unwind on the deck or head out to explore the sights that you will be visiting along the way.

Sailing through the Adriatic and along the coast of middle Dalmatia, the vistas are simply stunning. With jagged mountains, rolling hills and pine-covered islands, this is an idyllic part of the world. You’ll get to visit places such as Korčula, supposedly the home of the great explorer Marco Polo, and home to one of the finest medieval walled towns in Croatia. Another stop on the way is Mljet Island, a national park and home to a variety of flora and fauna, as well as a former Benedictine Monastery. The island is so beautiful that it is believed to be one of the islands that Odysseus is stranded on in Homer’s epic.

Bursting with history and legend, this part of Croatia is also home to some incredibly cosmopolitan towns and cities that are filled with vibrant restaurants, cafés and bars. You’ll be visiting Hvar and Dubrovnik, which have some of the most buzzing atmospheres in Croatia and are great places to soak up the culture, unwind and relax.

On top of all this, Croatian food is delectable: fresh seafood, gorgeous salads and flavoursome local wines and beers help to make this one of the most enjoyable destinations on offer, so get those deck shoes at the ready!
