Croatia is Calling 10/07 – 10/14, 2023

Welcome Aboard
Oct 7-14, 2023

As travel restrictions are easing, Walkabout International is looking at ways to again add more excitement to our walks by designing a variety of both local and international walks. 

One event that we are excited to tell you about is a CROATIAN CRUISE along the Dalmatian Coast. We have blocked ten cabins on a small cruise vessel that only has 18 luxury cabins. We already have deposits on five cabins, which include some walk leaders. The trip begin in Dubrovnik, Croatia on 7 October 2023 and end in Split, Croatia on 14 October. 

Our cruise includes airport pick-up and dropoff at the vessel, your luxury cabin, meals, and sightseeing. All cabins on upper and lower deck have wonderful ocean views. 

2023 seems a long way off, but it’s just around the corner. People are “on the move again” and many tours and cruises into 2023 are already booked out, so we have chosen one of the best months to cruise and sight-see in Croatia.


 We are using a well-known small-ship cruise line, Zantium Cruises. With just 18 cabins onboard, we will be spoiled by our 8-person crew as we enjoy the scenery, delicious meals, island exploring, and so many extras added. 

We will be responsible for our own air arrangements which allows us to use airline points, our favorite airline and add before/after accommodation, if we individually wish. 

Our cruise has been booked through Viaggio European Tours, who specializes in European walking/sightseeing small-group touring. For full details, On the front page, click “Croatia 2023,” then “M/V New Star.” 

An optional Walking Tour is available at the end of the cruise. Details on this 3 day land-based tour can be viewed at www.viaggio

If you have any questions, please text/call our Walkabout Board Member, Carole Ericson at 858- 829-1282. To reserve a cabin, a deposit of $500 per person is required. To reserve your cabin, go to and fill in your information; you will be emailed a reservation form. As this cruise has been booked directly with the cruise line, we are able to invite non-Walkabouter friends and relatives to also join us. An added bonus!
