• Croatia Small Ship Cruises 2023

Discover the Adriatic Cruise on board a Luxury Ship

Croatia’s magnificent coast and more than 1,200 islands make it a place made for cruising. While there are multiple big-ship cruises that will bring you here, for a more intimate experience that allows you to get to know the stories behind the destinations, you’ll want to board one of our elegant small cruising ships. As Croatian cruise experts, we’ve created a wide range of itineraries based on firsthand knowledge of the region, with a crew that provides exceptional personalized service while sailing on a hand-selected, luxury vessel. Our ships are some of the newest around, allowing you to travel in style and comfort while enjoying plenty of luxuries.

Our guests spend more time in each destination, exploring island gems and historic towns, taking part in outdoor adventures, and enjoying delicious, freshly prepared meals. In between visiting beloved spots that include everything from ancient walled cities to postcard-perfect beaches and family-run wineries, you’ll be able to take advantage of swim stops to leap into the turquoise waters of the Adriatic. Snorkeling, paddling, rafting, and even truffle hunting are just some of the possible activities. And, at the end of each day, you’ll return to a well-appointed, en-suite cabin for a peaceful night’s rest.
