Cruising Through the Bay of Kotor
Sometimes there's beauty in the gloom. Rod Marten snapped this shot of Star Clipper anchored in the bay of Kotor and the tender coming to rescue the folks at shore from the spritz.
Rain or shine there's no doubt that Kotor, Montenegro, is a beautiful place! The mist rising from the mountains adds to the ambience and guests were happy to get cozy and dry once they reached the ship.
The following i san excerpt from Cruise Critic's profile of Kotor:
"You will be rewarded if you set your alarm for an early start at Kotor, Montenegro, because part of the fun is entering the Bay of Kotor and gliding for an hour through the mountains on a 17-mile waterway that some people call Europe's southernmost fjord.
It's not actually a fjord, as fjords are caused by glacial activity, and the Bay of Kotor is the result of an old river running from the interior to the Adriatic Sea. Still, the views are fjord-like, with mountains rising on both sides of a long, thin bay that leads to the old walled town of Kotor."

I have sailed on the Royal Clipper into Kotor and loved it! Next month I'm sailing there on the Star Clipper? Can't wait!! Shall I write again and tell you which is better?
Hi Libbie! We'd love to hear about your experience! We hope you find Star Clipper and Royal Clipper equally lovely, maybe just a bit different.
