Viv & I did northern Croatia 10 yesrs ago, that was great, but we didnlt have time to get down toDubrovnik.
Nowadays the roads are apprently much better, so it should be quicker!
I had a week based in Dubrovnik & Split in June, on an organised tour with my friend Sue, I flew out to join her in Dubrovnik and stayed in Hotels on the peninsula in Dubrovnik and outside Split. It's a lovely area, and we did trips out by coach into Montenegro (Kotor and the inland sea), Krk national park (from Split), and into Bosnia to visit Mostar. As has been said, Dubrovnik city is best seen when there aren't many cruise ships in! There is a good campsite on the peninsula (next door to the hotel we tayed in, and run by the same company) which looks across the new harbour to see how many cruise ships are in! Buses are cheap and run until very late, so you can do the old city at night when the crusie ships have gone. The trip up the cable car to the headland gives an insight ino the geography and the politics of the recent war, and of course the centuries of history behind it! A good musem in the old fort.
For those of you worried about travelling the short bit of the road from Split to Dubrovnik, don't be! It's VERY short - about 15km(?); the road is good, mostly built up - apparently full of Bosnian holidaymakers (it's their only bit of coast!), and there's a duty free shop at the south end although I didn't see many bargains. They wiull take Euros or Kuna there.
Sue spends alot of time out there (she's a tour manager), and loves it. I'm loosely planning a trip next year to drive down to Ancona in Italy and take the ferry across to Split, and head to Dubrovnik and that area and then drive north - via some islands - and thence to Istria and Slovenia and back across Italy or Austria.
