Our cruise had a terrific itinerary, taking us to 7 countries, with lots of stops in very beautiful and historic places… perfect for our 50th Anniversary Extravaganza trip with Mom and Dad. Our first stop was Vodice, Croatia where we took a day trip to Split. Split is the second-largest city of Croatia, the largest city of the region of Dalmatia and has great historical significance. Home to Diocletian’s Palace, which was built for the Roman emperor Diocletian 305 CE, the city was...
