Port of Call
Venice (Trieste), Italy
  • /sites/default/files/VCE_62_PrivateGondolaSerenade.jpg

The scenic port city of Trieste is steeped in history and natural beauty. Nestled atop a limestone plateau on a thin strip of land between the Adriatic Coast and Slovenia, the region has been ruled by multiple empires through the ages. This cultural fluidity is reflected in the awe-inspiring architecture and fusion of delicious cuisine found throughout the city. From touring museums and historic sites to strolling along its waterfront or reclining on a white-sand beach, this isolated, picturesque region of Italy boasts a wide range of attractions and activities.

Port of Call
Rijeka, Croatia
  • /sites/default/files/881x400-RJK-Rijeka-Croatia-cruises-NCL.jpg

The port city of Rijeka is brimming with rich history and culture. Over the centuries, many different nations and empires made their mark on the city, something you can still see in the architecture today. Explore ruins left behind by Rijeka’s first settlers, the Romans, and enjoy the ornate, Baroque buildings left behind by the Austrian empire. People joke that while everywhere else has 4 seasons, Rijeka has 5: winter, spring, summer, fall, and carnival. If you’re visiting around February, you might be in luck and witness the spectacular festivities.

Port of Call
Dubrovnik, Croatia
  • /sites/default/files/Dubrovnik_Croatia_881x400.jpg

Despite the magnificent 13th century walls that surround the city, Dubrovnik is one of the most welcoming cruise destinations in all of Europe. Dubbed “the pearl of the Adriatic” by the poet, Lord Byron, this Croatian city exudes romantic charm and beautiful scenery with its shimmering marble streets, centuries-old buildings capped by bright orange roofs, and lovely beaches ensconced between awesome rocky ledges. Explore more of Dubrovnik on a European cruise!

Port of Call
Hvar, Croatia
  • /sites/default/files/881x400-hvar-croatia-cruises.jpg

Go from decadent dining to romantic walks, ancient history and beyond in Hvar. Situated at the center of the Adriatic Sea, just off The Dalmatian Coast, you’ll find the sunny island of Hvar. From rolling hillsides decorated in pine trees, vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields to baroque palaces surrounded by fortification walls, Hvar is certainly an island of remarkable beauty and culture. Taste organic cuisines made with ingredients from Stari Grad Plain, an agricultural landscape and UNESCO World Heritage site that dates back to the 4th century BC. Swim in the sparkling waters of the many beaches that span the island from coast to coast. Or journey through one of the oldest towns in Europe and visit extraordinary historic buildings such as Tvrdalj Castle or the Church of Our Lady of Mercy. No matter where you wander or relax in Hvar, you’re certain to enjoy the memories for years to come.

Port of Call
Koper, Slovenia
  • /sites/default/files/KOP.jpg

The largest town on the Slovenian coast, Koper boasts a colorful history dating back to Ancient Greece and Rome that springs to life in the Old Town. Here cruise guests can explore narrow intertwining streets lined with Istrian limestone facades. Enjoy open air festivals and plays, shop for local handicrafts, and savor the local favorites like jota soup, fish specialties and local wines. Explore more of Koper on a European cruise!
