Adriatic Cruise Map
Adriatic Cruise Map – Northern, Central and South Dalmatia regions

The variety of Croatia cruising itineraries with different ports convinced me to add this map of suggested sailing routes in Croatia from Northern Adriatic to South Dalmatia.

  • Northern Adriatic – the stretch from Rijeka to Zadar.
  • Middle Adriatic – Cruising between Zadar and Split is in the most popular part of the Croatian coast.
  • Southern Adriatic – Route from Split to Dubrovnik, is the ‘hot spot’.

Cruising the Adriatic has become a number one hit as more travelers are looking for this unique experience.  With 1185 islands Croatia’s Adriatic coast is the second largest archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea, after Greek islands.

In this article I’ll give you some sample itineraries you can use if you wish to customize your cruise vacation in Croatia. They’re based on most popular cruises starting from Split, Dubrovni, and other Croatian destinations like Rijeka, Zadar, Trogir and more.
