Adriatic Sea

Families will experience expedition cruising on Ponant’s luxury ship Le Bougainville, a small, purpose-built ship designed to access remote locations. The seven-night roundtrip voyage will sail from Venice, visiting seven ports in Croatia and Montenegro. Highlights include:

  • Discovering the islands of the Adriatic Coast with stops at Korcula to taste the famed Mali Ston oysters or Hvar to kayak along the Pakleni Islands
  • Enjoying food, Croatian wine, architecture, and culture unique to the region
  • Biking through vineyards and lavender fields of the UNESCO Stari Grad Plain
  • Tasting local delicacies such as Dalmatian Prosciutto, aged by the bura, a northerly-blowing wind common in the winter months
  • Exploring picturesque Boka Bay in Montenegro by catamaran or strolling the cobbled streets of Old Town Kotor
  • Wandering medieval Croatian port-towns awash in warm limestone and red-tiled roofs, and visiting the world-famous Predjama Castle in Slovenia
  • Delving into the underground labyrinth at Slovenia’s Postojna Cave and discovering the “dragons” that call it home
  • Stepping back in time to learn about time-honored Croatian traditions, including methods of pressing olive oil

Extending the Adventure

Guests can extend their vacations in select cities through an Adventures by Disney Escape, a series of short-stay getaways that are big on adventure. Escapes are immediately before or following an existing itinerary. The four-day Buenos Aires Escape is a great way to discover the capital of Argentina before embarking on the Antarctica expedition cruise. The six-day Amazon Escape takes guests on an exploration of the Amazon rainforest prior to the start of the Galapagos Islands expedition voyage.
