I knew to get to the city of Kotor the ship sailed down the bay of the same name, and I’d heard it had all the looks and character of a fiord, despite actually being a ria. Having sailed down a real fiord before, and seen some of the most beautiful sails in different countries, I really wasn’t expecting anything too exciting.

But I was so wrong.
