Finding a destination that provides a fascinating history with unspoilt natural areas is difficult these days, but Croatia can provide all that. Start your ten-day charter in ever-enchanting Venice – the culture and beauty of this water-bound city are endless. Then move to Croatia, where the northern fjords and bays are full of natural splendours that lead to total relaxation on board as you enjoy the scenery.
There are many national parks and over 1,000 islands to explore as you cruise the coast. Favourite cities and town visits during the cruise include Trogir, Hvar, Korcula and Dubrovnik. My favourite thing about the Dalmatian coast is the array of things to do: watersports one day, fascinating ancient and historical towns just waiting to be explored the next. This coastline is an area you can come back to time and time again without becoming bored. An alternative itinerary is to start in beautiful Trogir, sail the islands of Croatia, visit Dubrovnik and cruise on to Montenegro and the stunning Bay of Kotor. Whatever you choose, this destination is packed full of choice and diversity.
