Current Medical & Dental Issues. Splendors of the Adriatic: Croatian Coast Cruise

Aug 1-8, 2015

Join a one-of-a-kind itinerary designed as a reunion for past guests of Paul Gauguin Cruises and as a gala welcome for new guests! Launching from romantic Venice, the “City of Canals,” you’ll experience the splendors of the Adriatic coast on an itinerary that calls on seven very distinctive cities and villages. Sail first to Split, a Croatian cultural center best known as the site of Diocletian’s Palace—a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Call next on Dubrovnik, Europe’s best-preserved walled city. You’ll have a full day to explore the Old Town, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From here, The Moana sails along the Croatian coast to three beautiful islands: tranquil Korcula, the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo; Vis, boasting 3,000 years of history; and Hvar, acclaimed as one of the world’s ten most beautiful islands. And explore two gems of the picturesque Istrian peninsula—pastel-colored Rovinj, Croatia, and medieval Piran, Slovenia—before returning to Venice, savoring memories of the perfect blend of fascinating history and scenic delights, shared with friends old and new.
