Cruise the Adriatic aboard the MS Arion
The MS Arion cruises from city to city, island to island along the Croatian coast including Dubrovnik, Split, Korcula, Kotor in Montenegro, and Corfu, Corinth in Greece and Istanbul, and Kusadasi in Turkey.
Owned by Arcalia Shipping of Portugal, MS Arion has an intimate feel with only 320 passengers on board, and her size is particularly suited to explore the unspoiled small ports of Croatia unreachable by today’s mega-liners.
The 8-day cruise follows the Dalmatian coast to the Croatian gems of Dubrovnik, Split, Korcula, Pula, Zadar and on to Kotor and Kotor Bay in Montenegro.
Starting in the Slovenian port of Koper you cruise through the Bay of Koper between Italy and Croatia to the Croatian towns of Pula and Zadar. From there cruise the Dalmatian Coast to historic Split, the island of Korcula and Dubrovnik, the ‘pearl of the Adriatic’.
A highlight is a visit to the Montenegro medieval city of Kotor in its picturesque bay location.
The cruise calls in at the Croatian port of Ploce before returning to Koper. http://www.sterlingvacations.com/cruises/cruise_01_arion/rates.html
