Heritage cruise sails to Croatia’s key sites

Trade-friendly Sail Croatia has a new ‘Heritage’ cruise for this summer that will visit five of Croatia’s UNESCO protected sites, as well as national parks and places of historical interest.

The seven-night ‘Heritage’ cruise on Queen Jelena (pictured) will depart from the UNESCO-protected town of Split before travellong north to two other UNESCO sites, the seaside towns of Trogir and Šibenik.  It will then take in the waterfront city of Zadar, known for its unique sound and light installation, the ‘Sea Organ & Sun Salutation’.

From Zadar the ship will start sailing southbound towards one of Croatia’s most beautiful spots, the Krka National Park and waterfalls, with the final leg of the journey spent ‘island-hopping’ as Queen Jelena makes it way to Vis, best known as home to the Blue Cave, and Hvar where guests will be treated to a traditional village dinner on the UNESCO Stari Grad Plain.

On arrival back in Split, Croatia’s second largest city, guests will have plenty of time to explore Diocletian’s Palace which dates back to 295-305 AD.

Guests will spend mornings on the luxury ship before heading onto land to explore in the afternoon and evening.

Grant Seuran, Managing Director commented: “This cruise is ideal for agents who have clients interested in history, culture and the natural world, but who also want some downtime.”

Prices start from £2,049pp for a June 9 2024 departure. The price does not include flights (available by a choice of airlines from UK airports).
