The MV Adriatic Princess - 5-star luxury on the Croatian Coast

Experience island life on the Dalmatian coast

dalmatian coast luxury cruises


Croatia’s beloved Dalmatian coast is dotted with over 500 islands, from the larger isles of Brač, Pag and Hvar to hidden islets where travellers have scarce tread. Thanks to the intimate proportions of the MV Adriatic Princess, you’ll discover islands other ships simply can’t reach – for an authentic taste of island life on the beautiful Adriatic.

Negotiating sheltered bays and narrow straits, our private chartered yacht makes for extraordinary island-hopping. Tour the ancient streets of Trogir and marvel at its Romanesque architecture, before dipping a toe into the invigorating Adriatic waters during a leisurely swim stop. In Hvar, a guided walk with a local introduces the island’s Gothic palaces and medieval forts, while a visit to Brač lets you glimpse into Croatia’s renowned legacy of stonemasonry – each providing insight into the extraordinary history and influence of Dalmatia’s proud islands.

Immerse in Croatian history in Split and Dubrovnik


Croatia’s magnificent Dalmatian cities are alive with history, offering a vast collection of World Heritage-Listed Sites which hint at the country’s rich heritage.

Discover the remarkable Roman antiquities of Split, the largest city of the Dalmatian coast. From the enormous and wonderfully-preserved Diocletian’s Palace, built for Roman Emperor Diocletian in the 4th century AD, to the Cathedral of Saint Domnius and the Ivan Meštrović Gallery – Split provides extraordinary cultural encounters at every turn.

Dubrovnik, the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’, is equal in historic splendour. The city’s beautiful Old Town is designated a World Heritage Site, and boasts some of the world’s most ornate and palatial Baroque architecture. Marvel at the city’s medieval walls and appreciate the vast Gothic-Renaissance façade of Rector’s Palace – just two of the heritage highlights in this unforgettable city.
