Discover the glittering Dalmatian coast aboard the Royal Eleganza on this 8-day cruising adventure from Dubrovnik to Sibenik.

Experience the elegance and old-world charm of Croatia on a small ship adventure cruise.

Alongside the natural beauty of national parks and stunning beaches, enjoy regular doses of the region’s unique culture and tastes. Aboard the M/S Royal Eleganza, specifically built to sail the Dalmatian Coast, cast off from Dubrovnik and cruise to islands both chic and ancient. Explore the romantic and evocative Old Town of Korcula and enjoy tastings at a local winery. Board wooden boats and sail up the River Neretva to Bosnia and Herzegovina, stopping in Mostar, a town situated in a beautiful valley in the high mountains. Navigate the Adriatic to the Renaissance facades and jagged limestone cliffs of Hvar, then discover the soul of Croatia – Split. Paddle up the rivers of Krka National Park to dip into waterfalls, then dock in the historic city of Sibenik. This cruising adventure is the best way to travel the Dalmatian Coast.
