Katarina Line’s cruise or land itineraries give travellers the chance to explore the stunning natural environment and picturesque, quaint Mediterranean towns while hopping from one island to another.

This unique way of travelling is one of the most popular and easiest ways to experience true Croatia. With land and cruise programs, travellers get the opportunity to explore coastal and continental Croatia as well as neighbouring countries.

Katarina Line vessels cruise by day, providing spectacular views of the Croatian Riviera, hill-dotted island and pristine, unspoiled natural wonders. Dive in crystal-clear waters on daily swimming stops at secluded bays or world-famous beaches, and dock in historical towns just waiting to be discovered… by you.

Unlike bigger cruise liners with limited time in port, Katarina Line vessels dock right in the heart of even the smallest destinations, so guests can leave or re-embark the ship at their own will and explore UNESCO-protected sites, historical laneways and see the sights of major tourist centres.
