Dubrovnik is a very expensive, but beautiful place - generally Croatia is much, much cheaper (we live in Croatia), but with the Game of Thrones etc, you expect it to be. It's also very, very busy (in the summer especially) but well worth the visit. A tip: Don't pay stupid prices for taxis - around the corner from the port exit, there are buses 1A, 1B and 3, taking you straight to the old town for 15kn (2 euro) per person. Buses are frequent, and most you would end up waiting for one is maybe 2-3 mins...

Yet again another beautiful place. We took the tour to the Seaside resort of Budva and then had some free time so sat at a table on the beach for a "croatian beer" and still had plenty of time to walk around Dubrovnik before having to get back on the ship.

A real hidden gem. I'd never thought of visiting Croatia before, but so glad we did. Beautiful scenery, people and history. Great shopping too. Amazing food! Too short of a stop to really experience the city.

Gorgeous place. We bought the Dubrovnik card for 23 eur pp. Well worth it - buses, city wall, fort, about 10 places. But a few are closed on monday's, and many close around 4. So, make a mad dash with a plan. I can see why G.O.T. filmed there. Can still see there gears and wires lying around for the next season.

In Dubrovnik, we did the “DU10 Highlights of Dubrovnik Riviera” for $73 each. We went to higher ground on the bus where we stopped to take pictures of the panoramic view of the walled city below. We drove further to the Konavoski Dvori restaurant which was next to a river with some of the water routed to waterwheels. We were served some local meat, cheese and bread plus a choice of a glass of red or white wine. It was only about 10:00 am so it was a little early to be drinking, but it was a nice stop for a break and restrooms. We continued down the coast to Cavtat, a fishing village and seaside resort, where we had about an hour of free time. The promenade was nice and had many benches where you could rest and look out over the quiet harbor. We then returned to Dubrovnik where we had a guided walking tour. The streets were very crowded and noisy so we weren’t able to hear much of the commentary (even with the earbuds for the “whispers”). Since it was early May and there were...

Old town is very interesting. If you don't take a tour, know that yrs ago residents learned from disasters in other cities: walls are limestone (don't burn), there are no balconies on main street where residents take refuge during earthquakes and all streets slope to the sea for drainage.

Went to fort. Recommend paying to access top of wall. It’s well worth getting away from crowds, beautiful and peaceful with great views.

We did not book an excursion this day but instead paid the $30 for the shuttle. They drop you off in front of the castle (the main attraction). To walk in the main part of the castle is free, to climb up the castle walls is roughly $20 a person. They only accept euros in certain places in Croatia, however we were fine to use a visa at most stores. So I wouldn't rush to be exchanging large amounts of money for kunas, and everything is relatively cheap. If you do want to do guided tours, there are plenty of people arranging/selling tours at the site of the castle for cheaper than the cruise line offers.
