Exploration by cruise is an inspiring addition to a Luxury Tailor Made Journey. The 'Sea Cloud' fleet offers a variety of alternative routings and departure dates on three spectacular vessels. Speak to your A&K Travel Consultant or your travel professional to create a customized journey including a cruise experience.
Arrive Venice, Italy
Arrive at the historic city of Venice, where you board ‘Sea Cloud,’ an iconic tall ship that once hosted royalty, heads of state and business moguls. Embark on the first leg of your voyage, setting sail through the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea en route to Ravenna.
Ravenna | Astonishing Mosaics
Discover Ravenna, a fascinating city on Italy’s northeast coast that is home to eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Once capital of the Western Roman Empire, this city's remarkable basilicas house a treasure-trove of incomparable fifth- and sixth-century mosaic art, mesmerizing in its scope and beauty.
Sailing the Adriatic | From Italy to Croatia
Relax during a day at sea, passing across the Adriatic in the routes of the ancient Venetian traders.
Zadar, Croatia | Hear the Music of the Sea
Explore Zadar, an ancient coastal city that today breathes with a new, more modern life. Stroll the seafront promenade and stop to observe the fascinating Sea Organ, an art installation designed by local architect Nikola Basic which converts the movements of the waves into music. Later, behold the monumental Church of St. Donatus.
Hvar | Idyllic Island Splendors
Sail into the harbor of picturesque Hvar, a lush, mountainous island, where Venetian palaces grace narrow backstreets and secluded coves beckon. Walk the historic center of Hvar Town, pausing to take in the Cathedral, the Arsenal and the Benedictine Nunnery where resident nuns produce the world-famous agave lace.
Korcula | Birthplace of Marco Polo
Cruise with the fresh morning breeze to the nearby island of Korcula, which claims the great explorer Marco Polo as a native son. Wander through the medieval old town, and view Marco Polo’s birthplace next to the Cathedral of St Mark.
Bay of Kotor | En Route to Dubrovnik
Today, sail the tranquil gulf of Boka Kotorska, Europe's southernmost fjord, where precipitous mountains rise from azure waters. Later, dock in historic Dubrovnik. During the Middle Ages, Dubrovnik was a center of maritime trade, and its wealth and skill in diplomacy enabled it to become the only Adriatic city-state to rival Venice. Centuries later, the city emerged from the chaos of the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s with refurbished monuments and a welcoming, forward-looking spirit that has made it one of the most visited on the continent.
