Island-hop along Croatia's Adriatic coast, showcasing its most beautiful destinations on this luxury small-ship voyage, from the walled city of Dubrovnik to the dramatic waterfalls of Krka National Park. As well as enjoying a programme of included excursions – think ultra-scenic island road trips and guided city tours – you'll also have plenty of time to relax onboard, paddle boarding, swimming and tucking into delicious barbecue lunches. What's more, it's all enjoyed in the most intimate of settings, aboard either the brand-new MV Lady Eleganza or the more traditional MV Princess Eleganza, both of which are designed especially for sailing the Adriatic coast. Playing host to just 34 or 36 guests in a wonderfully informal atmosphere, you can expect free-flowing, complimentary drinks and superb dining inspired by the region. What's more, the ship will dock each night in ports that larger ships are unable to reach, allowing plenty of opportunities to explore Croatia's most picturesque harbours, pausing for al fresco dinners in seaside restaurants and authentic taverns alike.
