Walls of Dubrovnik
Cruising in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik, where I recently spent a few days, has a love/hate relationship with the cruise industry. In more tourist-starved days, the local tourism sector welcomed anyone would "brave" coming here, even cruisers who spent very little money during visits (since they don't need a hotel and they generally get their meals on the ship). But now that Dubrovnik is crammed with visitors, the city has begun regulating the amount of cruise ships that can dock at its port. Starting next year they'll cut the number of ships coming by about half.
