Katarina Line, a small ship cruise company in Croatia, announced that it is expanding its customizable tour options for 2018. Its fully customizable programs include a wider range of tours and sightseeing opportunities, as well as more excursions into neighboring countries such as Slovenia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Serbia, among others. The tours will include English speaking guides. Katarina Line is also increasing its fleet for 2018 and guaranteeing weekly departures.
Among Katarina Line’s new programs for 2018 is the three-night “Prosciutto Fair” itinerary in Croatia. Scheduled for October 20-21, 2018, the fair draws upwards of 25,000 people each year to the town of Tinjan in Istria. The fair features more than 30 types of prosciutto from countries such as Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Spain and Croatia. In addition to participating in the festival, guests can enjoy a tasting of homemade brandy, olive oil tasting, and sightseeing in Rovinj and Labin.
Another new program is the “Croatia Classic,” which starts at the Croatian capital of Zagreb, taking guests through the mountains of Gorski Kotar and Plitvice Lakes National Park, and to the coastal town of Zadar, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Itinerary highlights include tours of Zagreb and Zadar, a visit to Plitvice Lakes, rafting on the Zrmaja River, and a castle tour.
