Discover Ancient Dalmatia on this exclusive Andante cruise

During this lovely cruise aboard the superb MS Equator, one of the flagships of its fleet, you’ll discover many historical, cultural and scenic highlights of the region known in ancient times as Dalmatia. The fascinating history of the region is brought to life by your accompanying Andante Travels Guide Lecturer with stops including the perfectly-preserved Gothic towns of Hvar and Korčula, the gorgeous ‘green island’ of Mljet and beach-fringed Brač.

Explore MS Equator

Built in 2017, this new vessel is one of the finest flagships of the KOMPAS fleet, and we would characterise the quality as equivalent to a good 4* hotel.
