View Full Itinerary

Tauck's Dalmatian Coast cruises explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites on visits to Dubrovnik, Venice, Kotor and Split.

Cultural journeys and expeditions

Beautiful, historic and richly resilient, Croatia's Dalmatian Coast has reemerged among Europe’s hottest holiday destinations.... offering golden sand beaches, vineyards bucolic with lemon trees, olives and vines, lavender fields fragrant from afar, limestone caves sculpted in time... the architectural artistry of the Venetian Republic... fortified towns and terra cotta tableaus that play out in palaces and promenades...

Walk with us to places immortalized with local color, sip and savor wines masterfully crafted, toast traditions and tales fondly shared, and become part of the stories, past and present, that make your vacation memories last lifetimes. Guided visits and shore excursions choices include revered UNESCO World Heritage sites as you cruise between Venice, the Dalmatian Coast and Montenegro. Discover the architectural masterpiece that is Venice... the Gothic Cathedral of St. James in Sibenik... the ancient Roman Palace of Diocletian in Split... the walled city of Dubrovnik, renowned for its Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque monasteries, palaces, fountains, and churches... the stunning harbor town of Kotor... and the lavender-scented island of Hvar, where Stari Grad Plain astounds with its intact ancient Greek land system. Le Lyrial, perfectly sized and ideally suited for island exploration where the bigger ships can’t go, charts a course for destinations of scenic serenity like the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro, where private shore excursions reveal maritime treasures and seaside settlements worthy of leisurely discovery. Two nights at a premier hotel in Venice brings the aura of daily life amidst architectural masterpieces, ancient squares and the ever-present lacework of canals.

Discovering Dubrovnik

The treasures of Dubrovnik, Croatia's "Pearl of the Adriatic"

Preserved as the world’s largest restored UNESCO World Heritage Site, the medieval Old City of Dubrovnik on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast – nicknamed “the Pearl of the Adriatic” – has been blessed with a wealth of magnificent Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces, squares, cobbled streets, fountains, and medieval ramparts, all cut from the same beautiful stone. Its treasures include the Dominican Monastery, the Rector’s Palace, Dubrovnik Synagogue and much more. You can explore this remarkably well-preserved city from above by cable car, or on guided walking tours of Old Town or along the ancient city walls.

Hotel Danieli

Timeless elegance on the Venetian lagoon

In the heart of Venice, the legendary Hotel Danieli – created from what was once itself the palace of a Doge – dominates the Venetian lagoon just steps away from the Bridge of Sighs and the famous monuments of Piazza San Marco. Essential to the Danieli experience is its rooftop Restaurant Terrazza Danieli with its spectacular views of the Grand Canal. The palatial atmosphere of the hotel is enhanced by a rich collection of precious art and antiques that play witness to the city’s history, artfully blended with contemporary comforts to indulge the wishes of cultured global travelers.

Beautiful scenery! The ship was fabulous. Tour leaders fun, well informed, and very helpful. Food was great!

All Inclusive, One Upfront Price

Distinctively "inclusive" means just that – virtually every cruise cost is included in one upfront price, from shore excursions (private to Tauck), all gratuities, premier hotels on land stays, port charges and more. There are no options sold – no extra charges, no hidden costs, no "surprise" expenses.

Shore Excursion Choice

The choice is yours... We’re pleased to present an opportunity to customize and personalize your cruise by choosing your shore excursions on select days; choices have been carefully designed to appeal to different interests and preferences, with more active choices available on many days. 90 days prior to your departure date we'll contact you with the information you need to make your selections!

Book Your Air

International Air is additional. Contact Tauck for rates on international air for travel originating in Australia (subject to availability).

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
