About Croatia Small Ship Cruises
Mediterranean climate and lifestyle. Layers of history to unearth.
Fabulous beaches. Stunning sunsets. These are just some of the things you can enjoy around the Dalmatian Islands.
Though Croatia can be quite busy over the summertime, taking a cruise and island hopping is one way to break free from the usual vacation rhythms and dive straight into a marvellous holiday.
You can enjoy the open seas, escape the tourism, and interact with other international passengers aboard the ship.
Aside from enjoying the cruise itself, which we will go into detail about a little later, the destinations where the ships dock are also top-notch.
Describing the beauty of every single island and the cities is impossible, because each stop has its own charm and personality.
Throughout the years, Croatia has been influenced by Romans, the Byzantine Empire, Greek colonists, Venetian merchants and tradesmen, Italian and Ottoman Empire sailors, Austro-Hungarian engineers, and French designers.
Each interaction with these cultures has left a mark on Croatia, and you can experience this to the fullest effect upon the islands of Split, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Korčula, Mljet, Vis, Skradin, Trogir, and more.
The advantage of all these stops during cruises is that you can make your own itinerary for each island.
Do you want to wander amongst the lavender fields in Hvar? Savour the olives of Split? Buy fresh cheese on Pag? Lounge on a beach in Mljet?
Seek out the plethora of UNESCO World Heritage Sites around Split, Korcula, and Dubrovnik? You can do whatever your heart desires.
Optionally, you can stay aboard the cruise ship and enjoy all the fantastic things to do.
Aside from what was already mentioned above, some of the highly recommended attractions and things to do around the Dalmatian Islands include:
- snorkelling and scuba diving off one of the many beaches
- wine tasting in Split
- visiting the Krka Waterfalls
- hiking around Plitvice National Park or Krka National Park
- exploring the Blue Cave of Hvar
- visiting Diocletian’s Palace and Rector’s Palace
- walking the ancient city walls of Dubrovnik
- riding the Dubrovnik cable car
- dining at one of the many restaurants and cafes around the harbours
Every time you step off at a new harbour, you are making yet another discovery.
Taking in something entirely new and incredible.
You’re going to see a lot of things you haven’t seen before, and there will always be a tasteful mix of old world history mixed with modernized facilities and amenities.
With the increase of tourism, many of the cities and ports have cleaned up their image while preserving the characteristics that give each place its uniqueness.
