Exclusive cruise from Dubrovnik to Split

Visit the beautiful Dalmatian coast of Croatia from Dubrovnik to Split, cruising from island to island amid beautiful turquoise seas. Walk within Dubrovnik’s Venetian old town with its limestone pavements and evocative city walls. Enjoy the Gothic-Renaissance Sponza Place and note the few bullet holes remaining after the siege in the Yugoslav war 1991-1992.

Explore the stunning national park of the island of Mljet enclosing a lake on which there is a Benedictine Monastery. The ‘Barbara’ will also moor in the harbour of Korčula, a wonderfully preserved medieval city known to the Knidian Greeks as ‘Black Corcyra’ because of its dark pine forests. Marco Polo is said to have been born here and his house will be visited.

Discover the island of Hvar with its fields of lavender and where the churches house paintings by Tintoretto and Bellini. Explore the ancient city of Split contained within the walls of a massive palace heavily fortified built for the Roman Emperor, Diocletian and where he retired in 305AD. This Palace became the core of modern-day Split; bars, shops, restaurants and houses nestle amidst the historic city’s atmospheric cobbled lanes. Visit the Cathedral of St. Dominius, built in the 7th century AD the main part of which is Emperor Diocletian’s Mausoleum.


  • Explore the islands of Mljet, Korčula and Hvar, each in their own way unique
  • Enjoy the local cuisine and exclusive use of the motorsailer MS Barbara with just 16 en-suite cabins
