Croatia cruise: Split one-way deluxe mini-cruise



The itinerary is specifically created to see as much of the beautiful Adriatic in a short one week format - stopping at all the must see central and southern Dalmatian Islands and coastal towns. Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian ports, ships are moored side by side, making it necessary to cross from one ship to another with gaps in between ships in order to get to the shore. In such cases clients need to take special care when crossing and do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it.
