Dalmatian Paradise Cruise

Explore the stunning Dalmatian islands and Croatia coastline on a Deluxe Cruise

10-Day package holidays

This stunning coastline is off the charts as today’s most sought-after cruise destination. The waters are an amazing translucent blue, limestone walls gleam white in the sun under red tiled roofs and on the islands green pine trees dot the horizon. It’s mind-bogglingly beautiful. It’s also amazingly historic, with a legacy that dates back to classic Greek civilisation, Roman occupation, the Venetians (the great Marco Polo was born on Korcula), the Byzantine empire and beyond. All have left their legacies and we’ll get you up close and personal into tiny harbours on our small deluxe yachts.

This is a very classy way to travel – normally with a maximum of 38 guests in twin or double cabins with private facilities. It’s rather like an elegant country house party at sea with a daily change of scenery with the benefit of local knowledge to know where all the best photo-calls and watering holes are. We reckon it’s excellent value.
