Day 5: Mouth of Kotor and Mljet, Croatia (2)

Dubrovnik lighthouse

To reach our next port, Mljet, L'Austral needed to backtrack from the Mouth of Kotor. The route to Mljet took us past Dubrovnik, where we'd spent the previous day.


Dubrovnik pilot boat

Near Dubrovnik, the ship stopped for a change of pilots. The pilot from Montenegro returned to his home port, and a Croatian pilot came on board.


Dubrovnik walled city

We enjoyed a fine view of Dubrovnik's Old City and its walls as L'Austral resumed cruising and traveled north along the Croatian coast.


Jadrolinija ferry leaving Gruz

One of Croatia's ubiquitous Jadrolinija ferries left Gruž, the main commercial and yacht port for Dubrovnik, as we cruised north past the city.


MSC Divina in Dubrovnik

MSC Divina in Gruž Harbor

MSC Divina, a new megaship that has replaced MSC Magnifica (and earlier, MSC Poesia) on the MSC Eastern Mediterranean cruise itinerary, emerged from the harbor of Gruž just as we cruised by.


Gruž and Franjo Tuđman Bridge

Just to the north of Gruž, we passed a modern hotel and Dubrovnik's Franjo Tuđman suspension bridge, which opened to road traffic in 2002.
