Split Harbor welcomes thousands today


It may be the end of the major tourist season, but here smack in the middle of October Split’s waterfront was teeming with tourists.  The reason was no less than three cruise ships–the MSC Opera, the Delphino and one of Chandris’ big ships whose name I could not read since there was no room on the docks and the passengers on this beauty had to tender in.  Just as all three of these liners had docked, the majestic three-masted Sea Cloud 3 eased into the harbor.  This spectacular boat literally caused folks on the Riva to stop and gape.

On such a gloriously sunny day it sure was magical seeing a trio of luxury liners and then out of nowhere, the Sea Cloud 3.

MSC Opera was first to arrive and took up all of Pier 26

Almost as big as the MSC Opera, this Chandris liner had to dock outside the harbor and tender its passengers into the dock
