Katarina Line is also offering free transfers to Split airport at cruises’ end to those who connect to the cruises via the company’s 3-night “Coast Express” tours, which end in Split and can originate from Venice or Zagreb. These tours include additional sightseeing opportunities along the way, such as a visit Plitvice Lakes National Park.
“Katarina Line tours offer a great opportunity to explore Croatia’s amazing coastlines, which include unique medieval towns and ancient villages made popular by such movies as ‘Game of Thrones,’” said Daniel Hauptfeld, marketing director for Katarina Line. “Guests can swim in scenic coves and beaches, explore picturesque islands, and soak in the rich history of the Dalmatian coast.”
Katarina Line’s Southern Explorer and Southern Pearls 6-night cruises depart from Split and explore the striking Dalmatian islands in Category A+ vessels that can carry up to 40 passengers. Cruise routes include stops at Makarska, Mljet National Park, Dubrovnik, Trstenik, Korčula, and Hvar, with opportunities to swim in the warm bays and secluded beaches. Guests can also choose optional zip line and wine tasting excursions, as well as rent bicycles to explore the islands at some ports. Mljet is among the favorites for biking as it is a traffic free zone with gentle hiking and biking paths that are easy to navigate.
Katarina Line’s Naturist cruise from Split stops at ports that include Omiš/Pučišća, Korčula, Lastovo, Ravnik (Green cave) / Komiža , Biševo (Blue cave), Stari Grad, Vrboska/Bol, and Šolta. A 15% discount is available for the Category A vessel, Dalmatinka, sailing on June 3rd. It includes visits to historic towns and islands, as well as abundant opportunities for nude sunbathing and swimming at secluded locations. Nudity is expected on board except when in port and during meal time.
Among the highlights is a visit to the Blue Cave on the island of Biševo. The cave’s silvery-blue color is created by sunlight reflecting off its limestone floor. The Green Cave on the island of Ravnik is a similar natural attraction created by sunlight passing through small holes in the cave.
“All of Croatia is a cultural, historical and architectural treasure, with dazzling coastlines that have made it one of the world’s most popular destinations,” said Hauptfeld. “These specials make Croatia a great value, from both land and sea.”
