Greek Isles & Adriatic Voyage

Sailing into the beautiful Bay of Kotor

Having enjoyed a relaxing day at sea on Wednesday we were back on the up and ready early schedule in anticipation of our morning arrival into Kotor, Montenegro. We were scheduled to dock in Kotor at 9:00am but we would sail through the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska) starting at about 7:00am and that promised to be a picturesque voyage that should not be missed. Accordingly, we were sitting outside in the Sunset Bar area at the back of the ship enjoying breakfast by 6:40am and then setting up to enjoy the view thereafter as we sailed towards Kotor.

Walking tour of Medieval Kotor

Docking in Kotor was also great to watch as we parked right next to the Venetian fortified walls of the old town. Impressive is a word that comes to mind. Incredibly picturesque. We had thought to mix up our time here by starting with a short guided walking tour of the old town to get a better feel of Kotor followed by some touring on our own.
