Viking Cruises Sails into Rovinj For The First Time

Viking Cruises sailed into the Adriatic port of Rovinj, Croatia for the first time this weekend

Renowned luxury cruise line, Viking Cruises sailed into the Adriatic port of Rovinj, Croatia this weekend. The picture postcard coastal city welcomed Viking Star on Saturday, an all-veranda ship that takes just 930 guests.

Passengers were able to enjoy panoramic views of the historic old town of Rovinj as they sailed in on Saturday. Adriatic DMC's operations team was on the ground to handle shore excursions for Viking's passengers. While the luxury ocean cruise company has been calling in Croatian ports for many years, this is the first time a vessel has docked in Rovinj.

Managing director, Srdjan Kristic said, "Rovinj is not only a breathtakingly beautiful city but also a fantastic gateway to explore the magnificent Istria region of Croatia. Viking has recognized all that this port has to offer travelers with its fairytale surroundings, fascinating history, and fabulous cuisine. I'm confident that we'll see more luxury cruise companies following suit and adding Rovinj to their itineraries in 2024."

Viking Star's passengers were able to choose from a host of shore excursions that covered culture and history, gastronomy, and adventure including visiting Brijuni National Park, truffle hunting in Motovun, and a guided tour of Pula's magnificent Roman amphitheater.
