Explore the scattered mosaic of islands off Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast aboard the wonderful MS Zeus.

Unlike standard cruise ships, it can navigate the smaller port destinations of this stunning region. You’ll embark your ship at Split, home to the incredible Diocletian’s Palace.

You’ll then sail to Hvar, a chic and lively island popular with the jet-set, especially Zlatni Rat Beach, before ending the day at Vis, known for its vineyards. The next day you’ll visit Šibenik, which unlike other cities in the region was founded by Croatians themselves. Reaching Krka, visit the nearby national park in which you’ll find one of Europe’s most beautiful waterfalls, Skradinski buk.

At Zadar, make your way to the waterfront to hear the melodic sounds of the wave-powered sea organ or strut your stuff on a solar-powered dancefloor. It’s a great spot to catch a memorable sunset. Another highlight is Kornati, the largest group of islands in the Adriatic Sea and a marine paradise where you’ll want to plunge into the azure waters from the platform at the back of the boat.

Refreshingly car-free and awash with fig trees, Zlarin is an island with its own traditions and a delight to explore on foot. You’ll end your voyage in Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a medieval Old Town and Romanesque architecture.

4 December 2022

In Split, you’ll embark the glamorous MS Zeus for your intimate cruise

Split combines archaeological treasures, natural beauty and modern Dalmatian life with consummate ease. With its spectacular setting – a mountainous backdrop offset by the turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea – it’s no wonder that a powerful Roman emperor once chose to build his palace here. Today, Diocletian’s Palace is one of the finest and best-preserved Roman monuments in the world and takes up a large area of the delightful Old Town.
