We plan to spend to spend a few days in and around Dubrovnik and then work our way to Venice.
We are looking for the easiest travel way to Venice. We can split the journey or do it all at once. We are comfortable driving or taking ferries. We are not prohibited by cost, in most cases.
What suggestions would you have that allow us to enjoy the journey to Venice?

1The easiest way is to fly Dbk - Rome and from there take train or plain to Venice.

4you have 2 ways for overland-and for publ tansport
1.via italy-ferry on over (Ancona/bari) then il treno along the costa adriatico. IT not covered here-google will show all sites. For just pax NO real need to prebook long time advacne
2.along the Hrvatska coast-choice of bus or a few times/week coastal ferry (google Jadrolinija)-till RIJEKA=end of the line, change thre, a few direct buses and more tranists to TRIESTE=1st city in IT-and then il treno. you also did not say if that was from VNZ proper or nearby TREVISO=Ryans idea of Venezie. many people tend to think this is a fabulous ''cruise'' but it is not-and a lot of the trip is in the dark of night anyway-but maybe thats just your best thing for honeymooners

5The most relaxing and scenic route goes by boat from Dubrovnik along the coast up to Rijeka.. Rijeka bound boats leave Dubrovnik every Wednesday and Sunday. Dubrovnik dp 10.00, Rijeka ar 7.00 the next morning (book a cab).
Rijeka dp by bus 12.00 (Friday) or 14.00 (Monday) - Trieste ar 14.10 resp 16.25, dp by train 14.44 resp 16.44 - Venice ar 16.49 resp. 18.49.
Wednesday, Saturday and Monday, you can go by boat from Dubrovnik up to Korcula (ar 12.40), stay one day at Korcula Island and go then from Vela Luka (port at the Western end of the island, can be reached by bus or taxi) by boat (dp 13.45) to Split ar 16.30. Then take the night ferry (dp 21.00, book a cab) to Ancona ar 7.00 and go on by train: Ancona dp 8.15 and 10.15, Venice ar 13.17 and 14.49.
There are also frequent buses from Split to Rijeka and less frequent buses from Rijeka to Trieste (Italy).
There are furthermore daily ferries (except Thursday) from Dubrovnik to Bari (Italy) and plenty of trains from Bari to Venice: Dubrovnik dp 23.00 - Bari ar 8.00, dp by train 11.05 - Venice ar 19.17, resp Dubrovnik dp around noon - Bari ar 20.00/22.00, dp by train 21.24/23.59 - Venice ar 7.05/10.03 (both trains with sleeping cars).

Don't know if this will help, but it's worth a try. Me and my boyfriend did pretty much the trip you are describing, but back to front in sept 07.
We spent 2 days in venice
got the train from Venice to Ancona
got an overnight ferry from Ancona to Split
Spent a few relaxing days in Split where we rented a small bungalow from a local lady we met at the Ferry port (very common thing to do in Split and was really beautiful)
After a couple of days we got on a boat that we spent a week on travelling up the coast of Croatia, we saw korcula, h'var, split, Dubrovnic, Brac, Makarska, Miljet....and probably a few more places, but i can't remember them all at the moment!
Anyway, we had the time of our lives and it was defo a holiday to remember and i would highly recommend it for anyones honeymoon.
hope that helped!
here is a link for the company we used for our boat trip, we went on a boat called the Maestral, which was a return to split, but i think they do one way trips too.
