With the steady roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine gradually restoring confidence in travel worldwide, Katarina Line, Croatia’s small ship cruise company, is seeing the phones “ringing steadily” and interest in Croatia growing. Katarina says bookings are especially strong from families and groups that are looking to reconnect after months at home. croatia cruise
Small ship cruising provides the perfect “travel bubble”, allowing them to safely vacation together throughout the entire journey.
“Families want to travel again after so many months at home, but they will still be concerned about their health,” said Daniel Hauptfeld, Katarina Line’s marketing director. “Our small ships hold from eight to 38 passengers and are perfect for small groups, who can travel together in a ‘bubble’ of safety. We observe strict protocols that include the continuous disinfection of all public areas and observance of social distancing.”
With signs for a strong 2021 season, Katarina Line will officially debut three new deluxe superior vessels and introduce more guaranteed departures, with the seven-night “One Way Wonder,” cruising from Split to Dubrovnik Sept. 25, 2021, among the latest.
Preparing for the 2021 season, Katarina Line has added three new deluxe superior vessels for 2021: the 36-passenger Rhapsody and 36-passenger Aurelia, as well as the 38-passenger Adriatic Sky. These deluxe superior vessels are the newest and largest in the cruise line’s fleet, built to the highest standards, with quality materials that include solid wood, glass, marble and stainless steel. They also feature hot tubs, spacious sun decks with lounge areas, and luxurious, air-conditioned cabins with all the modern amenities.
Katarina Line also has added a Sept. 25, 2021 guaranteed departure of the “One-Way Wonder,” a seven-night, one-way cruise between Split and Dubrovnik. Other departures are available throughout the season.

Guests also visit the fishermen’s village of Slano and take a guided tour of the medieval fortified village of Ston. This includes a special tasting of oysters, for which the village is famous.
As part of the “One-Way Wonder” cruise, guests will tour Mljet National Park and its famous salt lakes, as well as take a boat ride to St. Mary Isle for a visit to the medieval Benedictine monastery. Later they will visit the island of Vis for a tasting of its local wines and a tour of the remains of a Roman thermal bath house. They can enjoy views of Hvar’s famous lavender fields and tour the old town, known for its Renaissance cathedral. There are also guided walking tours of KorÄula and Split.
Rates start as low as $1,575 per person double occupancy. Prices include arrival and departure airport transfers, air-conditioned cabins with en suite facilities, daily buffet breakfasts and three-course lunches, and a Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment. They also include transportation and admission fees to all tours and activities on the itinerary.
