First port of call and a bit confusing as to the transfers to the town. One had to buy the tickets at a separate table and then go to the buses but there were no signs to tell you. Once there at this lovely walled city, it was pandemonium with 4 ships in port. So busy its unreal. But wow what views from around the city walls. Sat at a cafe with what had to be the best view in the world of the sea and nearby ships and coves drinking very good coffee. Probably the best place to go it alone unless you feel better with a guide. We came back early to the ship as in August very very hot within the walls. Perhaps better in spring or autumn. Read Less

This is easy to do on your own. I suggest walking 1/2 the wall from the front gate to the harbor, take a short cruise, eat near the harbor, walk the main drag back to the gate, visit the beach. That's it. I thought Dubrovnik was overrated. Nice, but not as good as many other places we visited. My husband was very interested in how the war damage had been repaired. Read Less

A wonderful fairy tale like place! We did our own tour of the wall and the City taking advice from the Trip Advisor website and found it quite easy and simple to do.

our next next port was Messina, Sicily. We went to the beach. It was crowded and just a factory of people. Not great but at least we were in the water out of the heat. Then we hit two ports in Greece. Olympia was really really nice. Hot but nice. Navpilon was great and the tours of the ruins were very interesting and not to be missed. Then we hit Corfu. We decided that we we'd try to find a beach since i had researched their beaches before we left. We had been advised to rent a car. They were all gone when we got there about 930am. We asked about a taxi and the driver wanted 120euro to go about 15miles. A huge ripoff. We finally figured out the public transportation system and paid 1.30euro to go to a different beach. Not a great one but at least cheaper than 120euro. Not a great day. By the time we hit Croatia, we were just done with places. It was a beautiful looking place and my mother took a city tour and said it was fabulous but we'd had enough. Maybe someday i'll get back there to do it justice. Read Less

We did a tour here, but this would be way easy to do on your own. The city is nice and the food is good. Lots of seafood and fish type dishes. We ordered olives, cheese and bread for our five year old and he was fine. Definitely wander up and down the alleys to see more of the city. Would liked to have seen more of Croatia - maybe scuba diving or swimming as the water was beautiful! Read Less

The old city is so beautiful, although hot. We'd been here before, so we just went straight through the old city and down to the water. Swam off the rocks on the far side of the walls. Beware though - this is a popular area with the younger set and there were plenty of topless girls. Water was clear and beautiful and there was even a shower of sorts with fresh water so we didn't have to schlep through the town covered in salt. Didn't cost a dime! Ice cream is cheap here, and yummy! Read Less

Dubrovnik: don't bother with a tour. You can get everywhere in town simply walking. Do not miss Walking-The-Wall! It is still possible to see signs of the Serb bombardment during the Balkan war. Buy some of the lavender packets wrapped in the lace pouches from the elderly lady street senders. Eat down by the waterfront at the old harbor. We had seafood risotto at Lokando Peskarija. Don't miss the second oldest Synagogue in Euope, 13th century. You will need to exchange Euos for Kuna to ride the bus, but easy to do right by the bus stop. Read Less

Great city - we did the tour around the walls - we had wonderful weather and it was amazing to see the city from the sea. There is a different currency here - 8 to €1 or something!

Excellent port; MSC charges $7 to take you to the city by bus; per person. We shared a cab with other Americans and it cost us $10 for 4 people and we paid $5 for each couple. We ended up getting on a bus from Costa cruise lines to return back to the ship and it was free. Another reason not to sail with MSC they nickel and dime you for everything. Read Less

The BEST! by far. What a fabulous old town for walking. We took a morning and early afternoon tour of the countryside which included a boat ride down an agricultural canal and lunch at an old house. Lunch was nothing to write home about but the scenery was spectacular and we got to go into Bosnia so we copped another country. Back in town, we still had time to wander around the old city. We wished we had more time for that. Don't listen to your tour guide about where to find a public restroom. Go straight to the Hilton! Big sign at the shuttle stop. Can't miss it. Beautiful, beautiful city and surrounding area. Read Less

An unexpected jewel on this cruise. Dubrovnik was a walled city, easy to walk around, and beautiful. The water was crystal clear. The drive to Cavtat was amazing. A small village, with a beautiful garden and scenic vistas "to die for". We sailed back to Dubrovnik on a recreated pirate ship. It might sound cheesy, but it was a beautiful ride along the Adriatic.

Dubrovnik is beautiful, I enjoyed this port. We did this on our own, we had purchased the ships shuttle for $5 each way so it was easy. We kept hearing everywhere on ship that they did not take euros there, that is totally not true. We used euros for everything, entry onto the wall, for lunch, at a local bakery, gelato and the gift shops, no problem and we also received change in euro. Read Less

It was very windy upon our entry to the port. There were wind gusts of 55 MPH by the bridge just short of the port. The ship reportedly swamped some small boats we didn't see it happen. Dubrovnik is not to be missed. We walked around on our own and enjoyed it immensely. It is a walled city and has many delights. We visited the oldest synagogue in the world. It reminded me of the shuls in Brooklyn when I was growing up. We also visited the first pharmacy. We saw Croatian dancers and singers in the won square. They also had a market and I believe it was for our ship. Read Less

It was cold and raining sideways in Dubrovnik, and all of the people we met who went to the old walled city were pretty miserable. We got lucky by having signed up for the Dalmation Coastline and Wine tasting Shore Excursion $92 per person. We went to the village of Orasac and watched olive oil being produced in an old mill, where the farmer, his wife, and his 84 year old neighbor showed us how to cold press and hot press the olives, then gave us a wonderful meal of homemade cheese, smoked ham and homemade wine.. We then went to the walled town of Ston for a few minutes of rambling. By this time the rain had subsided for us, and it was still cool, but bearable. We then left for the village of Ponikve to a small winery owned by the Milos family for a wine tasting. My husband and I enjoyed the wine so much that we bought a bottle and 2 glasses, had the vintner open it for us, and enjoyed it on the bus for the rest of the afternoon. (Boy did we get a couple of dirty looks by some of our fellow travelers of an older generation!) The tour finished in the village of Mali Ston at a very quaint and boisterous restaurant with more wine and seafood risotto and pasta. Also one of the best things I had the entire cruise- which was a simple cabbage salad dressed only in olive oil and salt - ummmmmmmmm One of the top shore excursions we bought! Read Less

If the ship is moored up in Gruz harbour, it's quite a pleasant 40 min walk to the old towen area. Have a drink at the Buza bar, a very simple bar in the City walls and a hot spot. Read Less

Dubrovnik is an easy port to navigate on your own. Its 10 Euro for a cab to the West gate of the city and from there you are inside the walls and can walk everywhere. Do go to see the city lit up at night as well as during the day. If you are in fair shape taking the walk above the city around the walls is also very pleasant. See the palace - many art galleries and a great photo museum about "the war". Read Less
