Description of Croatia cruising holiday, Dubrovnik to Split

This Croatia cruising holiday is a small ship cruise on board a vessel that sleeps maximum 31 passengers. Spend a week exploring the Dalmatian coast, as well as inland up the River Neretva and then also into Bosnia and Herzegovina. The boat is 40m long and has plenty of equipment such as kayaks, snorkels, stand-up paddleboards and fishing gear.

This archipelago boasts hundreds of stunning islands, several of which are on our itinerary including Korcula, Hvar and Badjia. We will have plenty of swimming breaks at other quiet spots along the way.

You will also get to experience the magnificent waters of Krka National Park, famous for its 44m-high, multi layered Skradinski Buk waterfall. This small ship cruise starts in Dubrovnik and ends in Split, so that you have a chance to explore both of these beautiful ancient cities.

There are sixteen ensuite cabins, either double or twin, and all with air conditioning. They also all have windows, either a porthole or a larger window depending on allocated cabin. And of course there is plenty of deck space for sunbathing, wildlife watching and chilling out.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Accommodation & meals:

This is a small ship adventure cruise, on the Royal Eleganza, which is staffed completely by local Croatian crew. Some meals will be taken on-board using local produce, which the chef purchases at local morning markets. Other meals will be taken shore side, with passengers encouraged to support little local cafés and restaurants. Unlike other ships that cruise through the night, we’ll spend our evenings docked at port. This will offers more time to dine ashore and enjoy those balmy Croatian evenings and provide the opportunity to enjoy a local experience.

These journeys are designed to be low impact. That means there’s fewer passengers on-board, less stress on local communities. And while the big boats moor out at sea and ferry passengers to land by tender, we can sail straight into port. You can hop on or hop off as you like. Its convenience and comfort, all in one. That’s why, this small group cruise has a maximum of 31 likeminded travellers.

The Impacts of this Trip

There are many opportunities for passengers to interact with the local crew. For instance, our chef will offer a cooking demonstration of local dishes to those on board. Our Group Leader will help to teach the group a few words of the local language, which can then be practised on people during shore side activities too.

This tour actively encourages guests to chat with local people, visit local cafes and bars, purchase local produce, gifts and crafts and discover what life is really like in Croatia.

UK office:
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
