Explore the Dalmatian Coast up close aboard the 38-guest small ship Infinity.

An on board expedition leader combined with expert local guides reveal thousands of years of history as you immerse yourself in the culture and landscapes of Croatia. The Infinty is an ideal size to have spacious common areas, yet small enough to enjoy remote areas.

The highlights of this Croatia small ship cruise are wandering the medieval town of Korcula and breathtaking Hvar, exploring the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park, sipping wine at a traditional winery in Vis, riding the cable car for scenic views of Dubrovnik, indulging on oysters in a once-fortified small village and swimming at the famous beach Zlatni Rat.
