Cruise from Split to Split with Stella Maris
The Croatian coastline north of Split has so much to offer, however, surprisingly, it often goes overlooked. The good news is: North Dalmatia is way less crowded than the south, which brings more opportunities to explore the main highlights without hords of tourists. Listen to the famous Sea Organ in the 3,000-year-old city of Zadar, stroll along the picturesque seafront of Šibenik, enjoy multiple stops for swimming and delicious meals on board.
