Luxury Cruise: Split to Dubrovnik

A classic cruise along Croatia's gorgeous Adriatic coast, taking in the great cities of Split and Dubrovnik as well as some of the small islands and harbour towns that have been so beautifully preserved for centuries. We usually cruise for around 4 hours each morning, stopping for a swim en-route, before enjoying a guided tour of the days destination or some free time in the afternoons. In the evenings we are usually free to try some of the many restaurants and cafes that are so popular with our clients.

From Split, dominated by the extraordinary Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, we head via the amazing 'Golden Horn' beach to Beautiful Hvar. We also visit Vis, closed to the public until 1989, and the shooting location For Mamma Mia 2!
