“(…) I boarded my home for the week, the sailboat MS Panorama of Variety Cruises, in Dubrovnik and then sailed for the island of Korcula, Croatia which offers postcard-perfect seascapes. According to local legend, legendary explorer Marco Polo was born on the island notwithstanding that the Italians claim him. The town has even built a museum to substantiate their claim. Both countries could be correct. Korcula was ruled by a Venetian prince at the time of Marco Polo’s birth.
There were many advantages for choosing Variety Cruise’s MS Panorama, a small 40 passenger capacity sailboat, to sail around the Adriatic and Ionian Seas. My favorites included jumping off the deck directly into the ocean to cool off from the hot sun, quick and easy boarding, and the ability to visit places that larger ships could not go. Anti-Paxos, which many consider one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, is a paradise on the Ionian Sea that I am grateful I had the opportunity to see. Members of the billionaire Agnelli family, who control Fiat, have a home on the island. We ate dinner later that night on Gaios, the port town of the island Paxos
I have been bitten by the Adriatic and Ionian bug and will be back.”
