Description of Dubrovnik to Split luxury 5 day cruise

Daily swims, a new port every night, and a new delicacy to try every day: that’s the beauty of a small ship cruise. Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is ideal cruising ground, what with its myriad leafy islands and attractive ancient terracotta-roofed cities. You’ll be looked after by a local crew, and eat totally local produce on board.

Dubrovnik is famous for its mighty walls and fantastic strategic aspect: a fortress of a city, guarding itself against the sparkling sea beyond. From here it’s a short cruise to Mljet, a leafy island covered by national park. Brac, an island further up the coast, is a popular beach destination. Here you’ll stop in Pucišca, where pebbly bays and white limestone houses make this one of the prettiest villages in Europe.

On to Omis, a mainland town just south of Split, which was once home to the Adriatic’s most dangerous pirates, the Corsairs of Almissa. Whilst the pirates have long gone, their booty left the town with two intimidating fortresses.

End your journey in Split, where the ruins of Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, are considered too important to clear away, so the city is built in and around its 2,000-year-old remains. This route can also be done the other way around – from Split to Dubrovnik, and it’s tough to say which is better.

Every cabin has an en-suite in your vessel, and you can enjoy buffet breakfasts, four-course lunches and fruit throughout the day. Your cruise might be short, but you'll still get a captain's dinner at the end to celebrate the voyage.

Holiday information

Travelling by train:
We offer the possibility of travelling by train from the UK (or other parts of Europe) to Croatia and can book this for you. Leaving from London you need to allow 2 days to travel in either direction, though you can of course spend longer and enjoy some of the cities and scenery en route. The train is usually via Munich and Zagreb and through Slovenia, though it is also possible to travel via Italy (via Milan) and get a ferry to/from Split or Dubrovnik.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

We can book this trip for you via train so you do not need to take a single flight. Please see above for details.

The food and wine served on board is almost 100% locally produced, supporting many small producers, keeping food miles to a minimum and helping to maintain the traditional small scale farming and fishing that the coast and islands depend on.

The management of these vessels is dedicated to sustainable tourism in Croatia and are passionate about raising awareness of environmental, economic and sustainable tourism policies in Croatia. They believe the promotion of environmental awareness in the region will have a prolonged and positive impact on the livelihoods of the local people and maintain Croatia as a sustainable tourism destination for future generations.

The vessels that we use are all built in Croatia, specifically for use in these waters. This ensures that the most appropriate local resources are used wherever possible, and that the vessels are all built to comply and exceed local environmental and sustainability regulations.

By using small ships to visit and stay in some of the smaller ports and villages, we are providing an opportunity for a boost to tourism without the need for potentially unwanted and inappropriate new hotels to be built, and without increasing road traffic.

By using small ships, we can visit all the small ports and harbours larger vessels cannot access. These ports are often quite close to each other so we don't cover much distance at all, whereas the larger vessels have to travel much further to find a port they can access, using a lot of extra fuel while missing out on many of the best bits.

People

Vast floating blocks of flats, otherwise known as cruise ships, arrive direct from Venice and spill their loads onto the Dubrovnik dock where they are met by a huge fleet of buses that whisk them for a couple of hours in the beautiful city. These monoliths cruise past one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines with barely a second glance, and without a thought to the places they are missing.

The vessels we use are all locally owned, operated and crewed. The captains are usually the owners of the vessles, and often most of the crew will be extended family! The food and wine served on board is almost 100% locally produced, supporting many small producers and helping to maintain the traditional small scale farming and fishing that the coast and islands depend on.

In the evenings all passengers are left free to eat ashore, in restaurants of your choice. This further supports local business and communities by putting money into the ports and harbours we stay in, providing employment and further utilising local produce.
