The Dalmatian Coast & Beyond. Aboard the Silversea Fleet & Sea Cloud. 7 unusual journeys.

The Dalmatian Coast is Europe's best-kept secret. Come see what it's all about as we explore Croatia, Montenegro, and Slovenia. Our journeys around this history-laden region includes parts of Italy, Greece, and even Monte Carlo. They are conducted in a quite stylish way aboard one of three glorious small ships, two of them members  of the elegant Silversea fleet, and the third a classic windjammer, the elegant Sea Cloud.

Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Slovenia

Type:Ocean Cruising



The Dalmatian Coast is Europe’s best-kept secret. And it’s an irresistible destination, especially when you combine it with visits to neighboring areas of Italy, Greece, and Turkey. Come see what the Europeans know—and Americans ought to know—about Croatia, Montenegro, and Slovenia—with a taste of the greater neighborhood, for good measure.

     R. Crusoe partners with Silversea Cruises and Sea Cloud Cruises for seven unusual journeys along the Dalmatian Coast and beyond. Cruising aboard a luxurious small ship is half the fun. Come aboard the 596-passenger Silver Muse or the 382-passenger Silver Whisper, both members of the elegant Silversea fleet; or the exceptional, classic windjammer Sea Cloud, which carries 64 passengers and is a member of the Sea Cloud fleet.

     Cruise with us—and then consider extending our journey on terra firma elsewhere in Europe.

Please note: On this journey, R. Crusoe & Son partners with Silversea Cruises and Sea Cloud Cruises, and Crusoe travelers share the ships with other, non-Crusoe travelers.

About Our Ships.

Silversea ships offer R. Crusoe & Son travelers the luxury and personalized service they expect while away from home. All onboard suites feature butler service, champagne upon arrival, fresh fruit and flowers, refrigerator and bar setup stocked with your preferences, European bath amenities, down duvets, fine bed linens, premium mattresses, a choice of nine pillow types, plush robes and slippers, personalized stationary, binoculars, umbrella, daily news summary, WiFi Internet access (fee applies), and daily suite service with nightly turndown.

     Sea Cloud is a vintage sailing ship that simply cannot be topped. You have to experience her to understand...

Silver Whisper.

     Taking Silversea’s award-winning concept of all-suite luxury to the next level, the Silver Whisper is slightly larger than her sister ships yet retains their familiarity and intimacy. Aboard the Silver Whisper, savor a convivial cosmopolitan ambience and many special amenities usually found only on larger ships.

     The newest vessel in the Silversea fleet, the 382-passenger, 302-crew Silver Whisper offers distinctive luxuries and celebrated lifestyle Silversea guests adore. Also onboard: several dining rooms and lounges, a beauty salon, spa, fitness center, outdoor pool, boutiques, casino, card room, Internet Café, self-service launderette, cognac and cigar lounge, library, and a theater.

Silver Muse.

Meet the newest member of the Silversea fleet, Silver Muse, scheduled to be delivered in the spring of 2017. The new ultra-luxury ship accommodates 596 guests and carries 411 seasoned crewmembers. An ultra-luxury ocean vessel, she melds small-ship intimacy with spacious all-suite accommodations, hallmarks of the Silversea experience.

     Meals are served in eight dining rooms with varied cuisines. One is a Relais &?Châteaux restaurant.

     Other amenities? A spa, fitness center, pool and Jacuzzi, several bars, observation lounge, boutiques, beauty salon, library, and performance venue.

Sea Cloud.

Built in 1931, the world’s largest private sailing yacht was commissioned by Wall Street businessman E. F. Hutton for his wife, American heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. For Marjorie, it was love at first sight. She dedicated more than two years exclusively to this task, designing the ship’s elegant cabins, hand-picking and carefully arranging antiques and furniture. The Hussar, as the Sea Cloud was then known, spent nine months of the year at sea, shuttling the Huttons and friends wherever they chose to go.

     In August 1935, the pair divorced, and Ed Hutton gave the ship to Marjorie, who rechristened it the Sea Cloud. In the early 1950s, she decided to sell her beloved ship. Nearly 30 years later, it underwent extensive repair and reconstruction, and she’s ruled the world’s oceans ever since.

     The ship’s 360-foot length boasts 32 gorgeous (and ever so posh) staterooms, each a masterpiece of exacting, classic interior design. A crew of 60 tends to 64 passengers max. (You do the math.) No surprise, then, that the service on board the Sea Cloud is absolutely legendary.

     Meals aboard the Sea Cloud? Outstanding. The chef hails from a top restaurant, and his menus lean toward the nouvelle while incorporating the freshest ingredients available in each port. An onboard sommelier selects wines to compliment each dish. As there is no arranged seating, you are free to meet new people each time you sit down to a meal.

     Also on the ship: a bar on the Lido Deck and aquatic equipment, including snorkeling gear.
