Croatia small ship cruises
Croatia's craggy, island-speckled coastline is perfect for small ship cruising, our vessels' smaller sizes allowing us to access lesser-known ports and more close to the centre of the action. We welcome a maximum of 36 guests on MV Providenca and 32 on MV Dalmatia and MV Amorena, so it's easy to get to know everyone. And as each ship has limited space on every departure, we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
On our Croatian cruises, we'll take you to lavender-scented islets and forest-backed bays, stop off at seafront cities, and sample fresh seafood and superb Croatian wine in each port of call. There are a number of fantastic small ship cruise itineraries to choose from: explore the beautiful Kvarner Islands in the north of the country, where we'll weave through medieval alleyways and tour local vineyards; cruise the Dalmatian coast, combining forest-draped bays and hidden beaches with the historic cities of Split and Dubrovnik; or discover World Heritage Sites and national parks as we journey from Split to Zadar and back.
Idyllic coastal cruising
Fantastic views come as standard on these holidays, whether you’re cruising along the coast, mooring up at a picture-perfect island or pausing in a quiet bay for a swim stop. Each ship offers a spacious sun deck – the perfect place for soaking up the scenery.
Delicious, freshly prepared meals
Dining is a highlight on our small-ship cruises. A relaxed open dining policy means you can choose where you fancy eating, whether that’s inside or out on deck. Most meals are included and freshly prepared on board, and there’s a free bar open 11 hours a day. On-shore, there are countless places to dine, from quayside restaurants to cosy cafes.
Experienced captain and crew
The majority of our ships are privately owned, which adds to the intimate and friendly atmosphere on board and to the high level of service. Many of our guests describe their Croatian cruise experience as feeling like they’re part of a family at the end of the trip.

Your choice of small ships
On board each small ship, you can expect exceptional service, air-conditioned cabins, and a friendly, sociable atmosphere. Meals are taken together, often on deck to enjoy the warm weather and sea breezes, and there's a free bar for sundowners or a post-sightseeing glass of wine. Whatever your preference, we have the perfect small ship for you.
