About

Recommended for:
Relaxation | River cruise | Summer

Between famous highlights and lesser-visited gems, this casual-boutique, island-hopping cruise showcases coastal Croatia at its very best. Alongside Dubrovnik and Split’s centuries of terracotta-capped history, you’ll get off the beaten track to uncover waterfall-dappled national parks and near-untouched islands, home to quiet beaches and welcoming fishing villages. While you’ll be treated to a curated menu of included shore excursions and meals throughout, there’s also plenty of time to explore at your own pace, with overnight stays in each port.

Day 4
Vis
