Croatian Coastal Odyssey 2019

Come with us to visit Croatia’s spectacular coastline and idyllic islands aboard the charming Queen Eleganza. The region offers breathtaking natural beauty, intriguing history, stunning architecture and a wonderfully tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Our unique cruise covers the coast and rivers of Croatia with the additional benefit of mooring in the immediate vicinity of town centres, allowing for evenings spent ashore. Our itinerary includes a range of scenic delights – the Zrmanja Gorge, the worldfamous Kornati Islands, plus the dramatic waterfalls of Krka and the River Cetina which, whilst relatively unknown is surrounded by some truly magnificent scenery. We also visit the historic cities of Zadar, Sibenik, Split and Dubrovnik, with their history dating back through the Middle Ages to the Roman Era and the delightful islands of Hvar and Korcula, with their marble streets and impressive architecture.

For our cruises along the Adriatic coast, we are delighted to have the newly built Queen Eleganza. This beautifully crafted vessel is one of the finest Croatian flagged vessels of her kind and we believe she is the perfect vessel from which to explore the Croatian coast. Carrying a maximum of just 36 guests, there is the added benefit of a relaxed and intimate atmosphere on board.

The Sun Deck, with its comfortable sun loungers, is the perfect place to watch the passing scenery and the team of friendly Croatian crew will provide you with excellent service and hospitality throughout the ship. To enhance your voyage further there is also a Cruise Director on board.

Dining on board is a casual affair and the menus feature locally sourced fresh food including fish. When dining ashore independently, your knowledgeable Cruise Director will recommend popular local restaurants.
