Overview of Croatia Coastal Cruising – Dubrovnik to Sibenik

This is something a little special: a boutique 8-day adventure cruise along the stunning Croatian Coast. You’ll be sailing in the M/S Royal Eleganza, a small ship with 16 well-appointed cabins, spacious sun deck, BBQ and outdoor bar. You’ll dock in the heart of port towns like Hvar and Korcula, drop anchor in secluded bays near Split for a swim off the boat, sail up the River Neretva into Bosnia and Herzegovina, and tuck into the freshest seafood in the Adriatic. It’s a whole new style of travel.

Trip Summary for Croatia Coastal Cruising – Dubrovnik to Sibenik

Start Location: Dubrovnik,   End Location: Sibenik

Countries Visited: Bosnia And Herzegovina, Croatia, 
Meals Included: Breakfast: 7   Lunches: 5   Dinners: 3
Highlights:

    • Board a traditional vessel and sail up along the spectacular Neretva River, inland from Opuzen.
    • The trip includes an excursion to Krka National Park, where you’ll get a chance to swim in secluded pools and beneath waterfalls.
    • If you’re worried about long cruise days, this itinerary is a good choice. There are plenty of excursions, short walks and port stops, and the distance between islands is short.
    • While large cruise liners have to moor out at sea and commute into shore via tender, we drop anchor in the middle of port towns like Hvar or Korcula. You can hop on or off the boat as you please.
    • There’s nothing like diving into the aquamarine waters of the Dalmatian Coast. Weather permitting, our captain will be stopping the ship for regular swim breaks during the trip.
    • This itinerary includes a special detour to Mostar, in Boznia and Herzegovina. It’s not a stop featured on many Croatian coastal tours. You’ll see the town’s iconic bridge and have the chance to chat with local craftsmen and metalworkers.
