The Idyllic Islands & Majestic Shores of Croatia & Montenegro Aboard the All-Suite, 100-Guest Corinthian

September 25 - October 3, 2014

The coast of Croatia and Montenegro is almost too lovely for its own good. Ancient Greek settlers, Roman and Byzantine emperors, Venetian doges, and Ottoman caliphs have coveted this sun-dappled, island-dotted stretch of the Adriatic Sea. Yet, this magnificent coastline has escaped the machinery of mass tourism. The idyllic islands; the small, well-preserved medieval towns lining the coast; the phenomenal monuments; the palm-lined promenades; and the exquisite landscapes and seascapes have retained their authenticity and original character.
