Your Guided Group Holiday to Croatia

Sail around the Croatian Islands with us on a relaxing small cruise ship which will allow us to access the smaller ports, which are inaccessible to larger cruise liners, where we will discover the lesser known yet beautiful parts of Croatia. Our Croatian holiday will begin with a guided walking tour and some free time to explore Dubrovnik. We’ll then board our small cruise ship and set sail from this historic city. Your ship accommodates up to 40 travellers, so it will be very easy to socialise and have fun as we enjoy our Croatian Islands Cruise.  On this 9-night break, we’ll cruise the crystal blue waters of the Dalmatian coast, spend time relaxing on the abundance of unspoilt beaches, discover hidden gems and visit historical towns like Mijet, Split and Dubrovnik.
