Traveling the Adriatic Sea along the Dalmatian Coast
Exclusive destinations and cultural discovery is what this 7-day excursion is about – getting away from the usual tourist traps and crowded lines.
One stop includes Dubrovnik, a mediaeval city of a thousand years old, swarming with historical monuments, museums and galleries and is the very center of modern cultural events in Croatia.
Another site on the journey is Hvar, the center of Croatian travel and tourism. Another is also Split, where the citizens like to boast that their city is “the most beautiful in the world and beyond.”
Then there is Kotor, a small coastal town in Montenegro where you step back into time to the Middle Ages and is in itself a UNESCO World Natural and Historical Heritage Site.
The cost of a 7-day cruise is $2,649 per person based on double occupancy for the ultimate in luxurious suites and staterooms, L’Occitane bath amenities, Egyptian cotton towels, Bose SoundDock speakers with pre-loaded iPod Nanos in your rooms as well as spa treatments, culinary delights and shore excursions.
