ITINERARY

Welcome to Croatia! Your cruise begins with a transfer to Split harbour, where your ship awaits. Boarding starts at 14.00hrs. After you have settled into your cabin, join a guided tour of this fascinating UNESCO-protected town at 17.00hrs. You’ll be amazed at the abundance of Roman architecture, with Diocletian’s Palace as the centrepiece. When the tour is over, come back to the ship and enjoy a welcome reception and cocktail on board the vessel. Meet and mingle with the other guests at the party! (D)

This morning we set sail for Hvar, one of the sunniest and most scenic islands in the Adriatic. Our first stop is the Pakleni Islands, where you can enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters. In the afternoon we arrive at Hvar, where you can explore its many historical landmarks, such as the Renaissance cathedral and the oldest community theatre in Europe. In the evening there is plenty to keep you entertained, with restaurants, bars and cafes open well into the night. (B, L)

Today we sail to the Peljesac peninsula, an area known for its excellent wine. You will have the opportunity to sample some of this wine during our visit to a beautiful Croatian village. In the afternoon, we arrive in Peljesac and explore the rural areas. Afterwards, we visit a local farm where you will enjoy a traditional village party. This includes a delicious dinner featuring local specialties. After the party, we return to the ship for the night. (B, L, D)

We continue our journey to the island of Mljet. Upon arrival, join our cruise manager for a scenic walk to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park. Take a boat ride to the peaceful St Mary Isle, where you can explore an ancient Benedictine monastery, decaying abbey, and charming 12th Century church. Alternatively, you can explore the National Park on your own by renting a kayak, bicycle, scooter or convertible car. Return to the ship for a delicious lunch as we set sail for Dubrovnik. We arrive in Dubrovnik in the afternoon and before we dock, the captain takes us on a cruise around the old city walls. As we enjoy the views, a buffet dinner is served. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B, L, D)

Start your morning with a transfer to the Old Town for a guided walking tour of Dubrovnik. This medieval city has barely changed since the 13th century and you’ll see the Rector’s Palace and Franciscan Monastery on the Stradun, the main thoroughfare. If you’re feeling adventurous, take the cable car to enjoy some scenic views of the Elaphite Islands and Srd Mountain before spending the rest of the day exploring at leisure. If you’re looking for a trendy spot to enjoy a meal in Dubrovnik, be sure to check out one of the city’s piazzas. Or have a sunset in one of the bars overlooking the sea. (B)

On the morning of the sixth day, we will leave this beautiful town and continue our cruise to the Island of Korcula. Korcula is known for being the birthplace of Marco Polo and is a charming town with fortified walls. The streets have a unique herringbone pattern that makes it a fascinating place to walk around. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, and clubs in Korcula, so there’s something for everyone looking to enjoy an evening out. (B, L)

The final stop of our cruise will be the Island of Brac, where we’ll explore the charming town of Bol. We’ll have time to walk along the promenade or swim at one of the area’s famous beaches – Zlatni Rat, known for its ever-changing gravel promontory. Bol is a typical fishermen’s town that has been turned into a popular tourist destination. After lunch on board, we’ll have some free time before enjoying the Captain’s farewell dinner with live entertainment. Overnight in Milna or Pucisca. (B, L, D)

After the early morning departure for Split, take a final stroll around the deck, soak up the sun and say goodbye to your new friends as you disembark in Split. Check out by 09:00hrs and transfer to Split airport. (B)
