Cruise in Croatia
So it would seem that September with waters warm enough to swim in, is the best time to cruise the Mediterranean and you couldn't have chosen a better . I do hope I can help you with some tips on choosing a cruise liner from Venice to Dubrovnik.

1. Norwegian Cruise Lines has Norwegian Jade departing for 7 day cruises from USD 1160 - USD 1254 per person for inside and ocean view rooms. It has ten international bars and ten international restaurants to choose from , a fitness centre, spa , pool and movie theatre.
Here's what a passenger had to say:
Amazing cruise on the Norwegian Jade from Venice This was our first ever family cruise and I am so glad we chose to have it on the Jade. What an amazing holiday!!! Embarkation at Venice was very easy, drop off your cases and go and check in. Our cabin was ready for us straight away. The cabin size was surprisingly bigger than we thought it would be from the room plan pictures on the NCL website. There was more than enough room for 2 adults, a teenage daughter and our 2 year old son (plus cases!!) The staff on the ship help to make the holiday. They were all fabulous at their jobs and so happy and welcoming. Nothing was too much bother and they really helped to enhance our cruise experience. There was no pushy sales from any of the staff, no trying to sell extra drinks or shore excursions or one of the numerous photos they take of you!!! If you want to buy they are there for you, otherwise you were left alone.

It operates on Sunday, Monday , Wednesday and Friday leaving Dubrovnik in the night and arriving into Bari in the morning. Please check for departure times here.
