A city steeped in opulent history; Venice is a symbol of grandeur recognised across the world. Its magnificent palaces, piazzas, inter-linking waterways and charming gondolas make it one of the most beautiful and intriguing cities imaginable and the perfect spot to start an ultra-luxury cruise through the Eastern Mediterranean along Croatia’s glistening coastline.
Silversea’s small luxury ships are designed for those who delight in the thrill of discovery while indulging mind and body in the most lavish surroundings imaginable. All accommodations are spacious, ocean-view suites that include butler service, and most include private verandas.
Silversea offers around-the-clock, dedicated butler service in all suites. Guests of Silversea are assured their every need is well served – with thought, surprise and charm. Renowned for culinary excellence and an innovative spirit, their luxury cruises offer a choice of open-seating dining options throughout the fleet, as well as several speciality venues aboard all non-expedition ships. Enjoy the ease, convenience and value of an all-inclusive cruise fare that includes almost all of your discretionary onboard expenses.
Setting sail on 24th June 2022, this seven-day sailing will travel east from Venice to explore the scenic Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, before returning to the historic city for another chance to tick off anything you may have missed the first time around.
Before you leave Venice, take a romantic gondola ride along the canals, taking in the magnificence of the surrounding architecture. Wander over the Rialto Bridge, spanning the Grand Canal and make the most of the photo op, capturing one of the city’s most famous views. If the bustle of Venice gets a little overwhelming, take a Vaporetto trip over to one of the local islands, each with its own unique attraction; in Murano it’s the famous glass, in Torcello it's the stunning Cathedral, and Burano has its eye-catching colourful houses.
As you sail along Croatia’s coastline, you’ll feel detached from everyday life as you pass by rugged clifftops and centuries-old cities that have maintained their authentic character. In Hvar, the Spanjola Fortress, Venetian Clock Tower and Franciscan Monastery serve as windows into the city’s past as an important trading port on the Adriatic Sea. Enlist the help of a guide to understand this history in more depth on one of Silversea’s included excursions, or, for a more active outing, explore the city’s harbour on a kayak.
Further South, the storied city of Dubrovnik sits on the water’s edge, encircled by huge, defensive stones that served to protect it over the years and now give it a dramatic aesthetic that has earned it a spot as a shooting location for movies and TV shows including Robin Hood, Star Wars and Game of Thrones where it famously served as King's Landing. Its grand picturesque waterfront quickly tapers off into stone alleyways, interspersed with coffee shops, bistros, splashing fountains and baroque churches. Take a walk up on the city walls to gaze across the Adriatic and back onto a sea of terracotta roofs. An included guided tour from Dubrovnik takes you out of the city and into the surrounding countryside for a winery tour and visit to a family home in the Konavle Valley.
With one of the highest space to guest ratios in the business and eight superlative luxury dining options, Silver Spirit will be your home for the duration of the trip. With a staff-to-guest ratio of nearly 1:1, you can look forward to an attentive, personable service throughout your sailing as you meet like-minded friends; enjoy first class dining and relax out on the spacious decks.
At La Terrazza, fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients are used to make authentic Italian dishes served al fresco on the outdoor terrace. The pasta is made fresh onboard each day, while the buffalo mozzarella is sourced from the finest producers in Naples.
