Croatia 2019

Across the sea from Italy lies Croatia, a land where the physical beauty of the coastline and the architectural brilliance of the buildings rival those of other parts of Europe. Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast offers travelers a chance to experience a scenic blend of natural beauty and a string of wonderfully preserved medieval and Renaissance towns that have gone largely unchanged since the days when Dalmatia was an integral part of the Venetian Empire. Croatia’s unique blend of Mediterranean languor, medieval tradition, and artistic accomplishment is unique and affords nothing but pure enchantment. Our voyage aboard a private 38-guest vessel is perfect for exploring this region and its small, unspoiled ports, inaccessible to larger cruise ships.

Cruise Ship: M/S Splendid
Launched in 2014, the M/S Splendid is a delightful small ship, built exclusively for cruising along the Adriatic Coast. More like a private yacht, she is a perfect vessel for exploring smaller ports, and remote islands where big ships simply don't go. The M/S Splendid accommodates only 38 guests in 19 beautifully appointed cabins. All cabins face outside and are equipped with private facilities, air-conditioning, a safe, radio, and hair-dryer.
