THE Queen Eleganza is vis­it­ing the quaint Croa­t­ian is­land of Vis this evening, the most re­mote of the coun­try’s in­hab­ited is­lands with a pop­u­la­tion of just a few thou­sand peo­ple.

Com­pared to other Croa­t­ian ports which have seen a boom in pop­u­lar­ity, Vis has seen less de­vel­op­ment be­cause un­til 1989 it was a mil­i­tary base mean­ing few or­di­nary cit­i­zens were able to live here.

That is all chang­ing now, with Vis likely to see an in­flux of in­ter­est due to the movie se­quel to Mamma Mia be­ing filmed here last year.

Our ar­rival in Vis to­day fol­lows an overnight at the is­land of Kor­cula, where af­ter a city tour Eleganza’s pas­sen­gers dis­persed to en­joy the des­ti­na­tion’s wide ar­ray of restau­rants and wine bars.

This morn­ing a spe­cial de­light was a swim in the crys­tal clear Adri­atic off the back of the ship, along with a thrilling Zo­diac ride cour­tesy of the

Queen Eleganza’s owner and long-term APT part­ner Marko Mandic ( pic­tured) who took the op­por­tu­nity to show­case some of the lo­cal set­tle­ments. Eleganza cruises on­ward to Hvar, Krka Na­tional Park and Zadar be­fore the trip ends in Opatija and a trans­fer to Za­greb.
