The park is definitely worth a visit before heading back to visit the seaside gem of Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland and a showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage. Our final stop is Split, renowned for its variety of archaeological gems.

Upper deck or below deck cabin?
On all of our Croatia cruise holidays, you have the choice of an on deck (upper) or below deck cabin. Below deck cabins are located below the main deck or in the hull of the ships. They do have windows or port holes that allow in natural light but these generally do not open. On deck cabins are either on the main deck or top floor of the boat. These all have opening windows that allow in the breeze.
