We had a day to settle into the cruise and explore the ship while at sea, got our SPA passes, ate the usual 5 meals a day and even randomly bumped into some college friends, Dru and Nicky onboard!
The first stop on our Mediterranean cruise was in Split, Croatia and we were excited to disembark and explore the port area and make the most of our few hours on land. Split is the second largest city, also one of the oldest, in Croatia and is located on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea.
We had time to squueze in a brief visit to the Diocletian Palace (Unesco Heritage Site) and strolled around Old Town eating snacks we picked up at the local market. Although the water was a tad bit cold to swim in, we watched a rowing race while enjoying a delicious gelato with just enough time to taxi back to the cruise for some evening entertainment!
