Aside from cruises in Croatia, the other type of cruise you can undertake are cruises to Croatia – meaning, those that explore the eastern/southern Mediterranean, with stops in countries such as Italy and Greece. A number often stop off at a few Croatian locations, the most likely of which is Dubrovnik. (Other places – usually in addition to Dubrovnik – may include the island of Korcula or Split on the mainland).
You’ll probably get a day (or half a day) as a stopover in these places, which will give you a brief bit of time to explore and sightsee before returning to your ship.
These types of cruises are an excellent introduction to Croatia (we are sure that you want to go back after your brief taster!) and are a good way of combining the country with other nearby ones – such as Italy (Venice, unsurprisingly, is a very frequent stop off or starter point), Slovenia, Montenegro or Greece.
