It certainly has an unusual but also memorable name for us, English speakers. Our first cruise port on our 7-day Mediterranean cruise last June was Croatia’s second largest city, Split. Located on the country’s Dalmatian coast, this was our first glimpse of Split from the ship. With majestic mountains standing behind the coastal city, we couldn’t wait to see what it had to offer.
We didn’t set up a shore excursion with the ship. From previous cruise experiences, we knew there were going to be many tour companies waiting for passengers outside the port gate. They’re also usually cheaper than the ones offered by the cruise ship.
It was a bit overwhelming to see all the tour guides and companies when we came out.
