About the Journey

Island hopping aboard 18-cabin Queen Eleganza with your fellow Princetonians is undoubtedly the best way to discover the Croatian coast from a truly dazzling perspective.

Did you know that the Croatian coast boasts over 1,000 islands, islets and crags? Join Princeton Journeys on an island-hopping adventure as we learn about the civilizations that swept across the Eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea over the course of many millennia. From the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires to the Crusades and the Renaissance, these civilizations left a wealth of architectural and cultural treasures behind. In a region well worth exploring for its natural beauty alone, you will visit spellbinding archaeological sites, impressive cathedrals, dramatic palaces, and ancient city centers that illuminate the layered history of the Dalmatian Coast.

Begin in Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb, for a one-night stay at the 5-star Hotel Le Premier. Continue to Zadar for a 7-night Adriatic cruise aboard Queen Eleganza, an 18-cabin yacht chartered exclusively for Princeton Journeys. Sail along the Croatian coast calling on Trogir, Split, Hvar, and Korčula, Mljet, and Dubrovnik along the way. A leisurely cruising pace allows for ample free time in town to sample regional cuisine and mingle with locals.

For those wishing to dive deeper into this fascinating region, a pre-cruise extension to Slovenia to will be offered.
