Seabourn Spirit Adriatic Cruise: Day 8 (Sali, Croatia)

Sailing Triluke Bay

Today was a lazy day aboard Seabourn Spirit. We sailed Triluke Bay, which is an uninhabited cove on the southernmost coast of Pasman. We dropped anchor about a half mile from Sali, Croatia, which is a small town but the largest on the island of Dugi otok. It turns out Dugi otok is the seventh […]

Seabourn Spirit Adriatic Cruise: Day 7 (Split, Croatia)

Seabourn Spirit

Dobra večer (good evening)! We just split Split, Croatia and Natalie and I had an incredible full day. So far Split is our favorite port of this cruise. For starters, the Adriatic Sea has been so smooth we were able to spot dolphins from our balcony at 6:30am. We pulled into port around 8am and […]

Seabourn Spirit Adriatic Cruise: Day 6 (Dubrovnik, Croatia)

Breakfast on Seabourn

I woke up this morning at 6am and the Adriatic was so smooth I couldn’t tell if we were moving or not. We were indeed moving and about two hours later we were moored just off the coast of Dubrovnik. Woo hoo! It was our first time to Croatia so Natalie and I were excited […]

Seabourn Spirit Adriatic Cruise: Day 3 (Montenegro)

6:15 a.m.

I set my alarm for 6:20a.m. since that’s when Captain David Bathgate of Seabourn Spirit told us the views were going to begin to get good on our arrival into The Bay of Kotor in Montenegro. He was right. I had no idea Montenegro would remind me of Norway’s fjords even though they aren’t technically fjords. […]

Hurtigruten Voyage in Norway


Norway isn’t that far, especially if you are already in Europe. Natalie and I flew from Frankfurt to Bergen and flight time was just 90 minutes. On the return we flew Oslo to Paris, and that flight was 1 hour and 45 minutes. We landed in Bergen 36 hours after the horrible tragedy in Oslo. […]
