Day 5: Mouth of Kotor and Mljet, Croatia
Day 5 of our cruise began in the, which is often described as "the deepest fjord in the Mediterranean" or "the southernmost fjord in Europe."
The Mouth of Kotor--also known as the Bay of Kotor--is only 350 meters or less than a quarter of a mile wide at its narrowest point. It's surrounded by the country of Montenegro, and Kotor--the best-known town on the bay--is a popular day port for cruise ships.
The day was sunny, the sea was smooth, and L'Austral was almost silent as it cruised slowly above the underwater river canyon.
The Mouth of Kotor is known for its monasteries and convents
(many of them in ruins).
As L'Austral cruised through the Mouth of Kotor, we saw two small luxury cruise ships at anchor: Silversea's Silver Wind and Seabourn Spirit.
Sunbathers settled into deck chairs as L'Austral left the Mouth of Kotor for the Adriatic.
