Emerald Waterways' Adriatic Princess II
Emerald Waterways’ Adriatic Princess II

Emerald Waterways has announced its first foray into ocean cruising with a brand-new yacht and sailing itinerary along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast in the Adriatic Sea.

David Winterton, Global Brand Curator at Emerald Waterways, said: “We are delighted to announce our new for 2019 Dalmatian coast itinerary, which guest will sail aboard our first yacht – the new five-star MV Adriatic Princess II.

“As our first ocean cruise, we’re sailing in to new, uncharted waters for the brand. Yet it’s an exciting new opportunity that we feel our guests will love.

“They are constantly looking for new destinations to explore with us, and Croatia offers the perfect combination of culture, history and beauty.

“Exploring this region on board an intimate yacht, with just 18 cabins and a maximum capacity of 36 guests offers our guests the best of both worlds, whether that’s taking Croatia’s breath-taking coastline from ship’s sun deck, walking the cobblestone streets or sampling the delicacies of the area’s traditional cuisine.”

Launching in 2019, the five-star MV Adriatic Princess II has been designed to specifically navigate the Dalmatian coast and its many small ports.

As part of the eight-day The Islands of Dalmatia cruise, sailing the yacht-friendly waters between Trogir and Dubrovnik, Croatia, guests will take in some of the most spectacular destinations along the Adriatic coast and learn about the unique topography of this region, comprised of thousands of off-shore islands and coastlines dotted with limestone mountains and ancients cities and towns.

Emerald Waterways will be offering 22 departures from April through to October 2019, and is currently accepting pre-bookings. Ports of call include Split, Šibenik, Hvar, Korčula and Dubrovnik.
