We took the princess shuttle into the centre of town and walked straight through the other side to get to a reasonable size sandy beach. After that we went up onto the city walls, fantastic views, but quite a long walk. Then we had a wander around the town centre, lots of nice bars/cafes/shops to linger in. Only problem was when we tried to get out of Pile gate - the main way into/out of the city - a tour from MSC cruises was trying to come in and it was unbearably hot, crowded and in danger of turning into a major crush. I would suggest you leave the city by a different route if there is more than one cruise ship in. Read Less

Dubrovnik is simply a world heritage site. The old city is fascinating. You can wander thru the narrow streets and find new discoveries at every turn.

We have been to Dubrovnik before. We got off the ship, got right onto a bus at the dock, and spent a lovely day strolling the walled city. You need Euros for the bus. Have a lunch, a gelato (really great gelato there, shop, walk the wall for wonderful views and photos, stroll the ancient walled city and just enjoy. There are ship excursions to escort you around the city- you do not need it. You will be FINE on your own. You might see lacemaking, people in period costumes, and resting artwork. Read Less

Wow.... What a surprise! Full of History & totally charming. We walked along the City Wall, high above the narrow streets full of restaurants & shops in sandy coloured buildings with red tiled roofs. Other parts of the wall you look down into crystal, Emerald green water with divers taking the plunge from ledges on the surrounding cliffs. You have to see it to believe it. Read Less

Wonderful, very clean, no litter or graffiti, nice well mannered people, very expensive though, we found a wonderful side street cafe where the locals go and it was great only 3 euros for 2 coffees!

Having not been to Dubrovnik or Corfu before I was looking forward to our 2 last ports of call. I was not disappointed in either. I am having to combine Dubrovnik and Corfu as a Port 7 option does not seem to be available. Dubrovnik (we did not do any trips) - again we had to pay for a shuttle bus for the 10 minute journey to the town centre. However the coaches ran very regularly and we were never kept waiting for a coach. We were dropped right outside the Old City walls and then on walking through the Main Gate entrance was like stepping back in time. The people were friendly and prices were really good for everything in the shops. We paid with Euros and it was not a problem. Dubrovnik was simply stunning and well worth further exploring on a future visit. Lots of quaint streets, shops and photo opportunities. We did not bother walking the city walls as it was far too hot but those guests that did seemed to enjoy the experience and value the views. We spent a good few hours in Dubrovnik and made it back to the ship for a late lunch! I was pleasantly surprised by Corfu but by the time we reached the Island I was all cultured out and could not take any more historical sights! Again the people were lovely and there was a good selection of shops to have a poke around. We took the ships shuttle bus again (chargeable as normal to our Sea Pass account)- one to the edge of the port and then another to Corfu town centre but it was straight off one and onto another waiting so was not a problem. Corfu was the cheapest place for buying things and the locals were always up for bartering! The walk from the drop off point to the shops again was just 5 minutes which is far enough when there is serious shopping to be done! Corfu as I mentioned is somewhere that I had not really given much thought to before but the lovely beaches and swimming areas seemed like they will be well worth another visit ... one day. Read Less

This is a nice compact port. We accessed by tender and docked virtually at the old town. We did not use ships tours but did our own thing which is easy to do at this port. Lots of old buildings, some still showing the scars of the not to distant conflict. Lots of shops and cafes to visit if you are so minded and also a walk along the city walls, which carries a small charge. Need to remember, they do not accept Euros, only local currency or credit cards. Read Less

We did not take a NCL excursion in this port and had a great time! Everything is within walking distance -- it's all right there. In fact, we went to a cab driver and told him where we wanted to go and he laughed and pointed to each sight. We had a wonderful lunch at Nautika ( $500.00 for 4 people ) because we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary so we splurged. On the water, great food, and great service. Walked through the walled city, lots of great shopping, restaurants, churches. We LOVED this port! Read Less

Beautiful walled city - very picturesque and easy transfer from ship to the town. Def worth coming back to Dubrovnik for a weekend break or more, one of the best places on the itinerary.

Beautiful port and the old city was great. We probably had a half dozen interactions with natives of the city and found them cool and not particularly welcoming. Would not choose to go back

Dubrovnik was also a beautiful historical place to visit. We did an excursion which took us out onto the hill side to get some stunning panoramic shots of the city - well worth it! Compared to the arid appearance of the Greek islands, Dubrovnik was very lush and green and looked beautiful from the ship. The town itself was spotlessly clean and very traditional and although their currency wasn't the Euro, they did accept them. Read Less

Dubrovnik is on the Aegean Sea with gorgeous views of its clear blue waters. The old town is completely encircled by a wall that protected the city from invasion for centuries. I had been in walled towns before but the thing that was surprising to me about Dubrovnik was how pretty the old was: all in white stone and marble with orange/yellow tile rooftops. The streets are paved in white marble, the buildings are white marble or stone – it was just lovely. We chose an excursion that involved walking the entire circumference of the walls and that was an excellent way to see the city and the views of the sea. The only negative was that it was very hot when we were there, which made the tour less pleasant than it would have been otherwise. The town was also very crowded since we were there in August when much of Europe appeared to be vacationing in Dubrovnik! We had a pretty good tour guide who gave us lots of facts, but wasn’t as good at helping us understand the history of the city as the best guides that we had. I wasn’t sure what the appeal would be of Croatia since I wasn’t familiar with the area, but it is definitely beautiful and we enjoyed our half day visit. Read Less

You need to get a bus as the port is about 10 mins drive away from the old town. Lots of restaurants to choose from here including a lot of fish places around the marina. Read Less

The ship provides shuttles to & from the Old Town. We did the organised bus & walking tour but wish we hadn't. This is a beautiful town, don't waste time 'inside' the so called palaces etc - they are sparce in antiquities and the best views are to be had from the walls. There are lots of restaurants in the old town, they're expensive though but the food's good. The two restaurants near the shuttle stops are recommended by the ship but they're small terraces and fully booked with excursions. Read Less

I talked about the diving above, wife did the old city tour. Enjoyable but not a place we will work to come back to. They don't give us enough space, i put Corfu in the Dubrovnik class. The offroading is not offroading, to them offroading is using an unpaved road. That said it was fun to drive the jeep and see the old towns We spent three days in Barcelona stayin on La Rambla at the end of the cruise. This city I put in the same class as Rome, I could and will spend more time there. If you see St. Peters in Rome,then come here and go to the Sagrada Familia, they are both in the same class, nothing else I have seen compare to them. Read Less
