After a night in the Adriatic Sea, MS Rotterdam glides into the beautiful,

6:14 AM ~ A fishing boat heads for the open sea.

He is following in the wake of ancestors who have fished these waters since early in the 7th century when the Serbs and Croats settled the Balkans province of Dalmatia.

Port of Gruž and Harbor Bridge

The harbor bridge was under construction when the Shoenbergers visited here on their Rotterdam VI cruise in September 2001. The previous bridge was destroyed
during the war in the early 1990s. More on that later.
