Adriatic cruise

Hi! I'm looking for some good small cruises around Croatia. Any suggestions? I've found some here which looks nice.
What do you think?

I took a cruise a few years ago on Norwegian Star that stopped in a few countries, including two port calls in Croatia - Split and Dubrovnik. It was really nice and I'd highly recommend it - I think Star still does that or a similar itinerary, or one of her sister ships does.

Have never really looked at the small boat cruises before. We usually go with the larger cruise ships and cruise lines. Interesting option though.

Most cruises that I have seen that do Croatia embark from an Italian or Greek port. They usually range from 7 to 14 days and most cruise lines have several ships doing these. We looked at a number of options recently and settled on one in Sept 2021 on NCL Getaway which will be doing some ports in Croatia, Montenegro and the Greek isles.

Good to know. Thx.

Doing a B2B next year on Celebrity Infinity to catch a few of those ports. I know Viking has a nice itinerary for that region.

We want to fly to Croatia to see Zagreb and some other inland cities and then would join a cruise. Therefore is the best option for now. I saw they have some small cruises from Istria region all the way down to Dalmatia.

We've been to Greece and Italy before so that doesn't interest us at the moment.

We'll for sure contact Tour Croatia to see more about their offers. From reading the reviews they seem ok.

Good luck finding what you are after. Please come back and let us know how you make out and let us know how enjoyable it was.

Azamara has a wonderful 7-night Croatia Intensive Voyage that visits a different port each day: Opatija, Sibenik, Split, Dubrovnik, Hvar and Zadar. It does sail roundtrip Venice, but transportation there shouldn’t be difficult.

CroisiEurope sails roundtrip Dubrovnik to Mljet, Korcula, Sibenik, Trogir, Split, Vis Hvar and Kotor, Montenegro.

While Zagreb is inland, it is a river cruise port on various itineraries. Often starting in Budapest, a river cruise would visit numerous destinations in Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia.

That’s just off the top of my head. There are lots of choices for cruising around – and through – Croatia. You could even combine a river and ocean cruise back-to-back to see everything. Happy cruising!

Katarina Lina also has some wonderful Croatia itineraries!
