ITINERARY

Welcome to Split! Our vessel is available for you to embark from 14.00hrs. You can leave your luggage on board, so you can savour your day in Split, exploring this stunning town. This evening, join your Captain, crew and fellow passengers for a Welcome Dinner to get the adventure started. (D)

Start your day with a guided tour of Split and explore the ancient fortress of Diocletian’s Palace. This city is perfect for sightseeing, offering 1700 years of history to discover. You can tailor your own experience while in Split, during some free time. In the midday, enjoy a leisurely cruise to Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its stunning palaces and churches. On arrival, enjoy a guided exploration of the city and learn about its history and attractions. See the impressive St Lawrence Cathedral, and take in all the sights this city has to offer. In the evening, you’re free to do as you please – perhaps find a local tavern for dinner. (B, L)

Today we will visit the amazing Zlatni Rat beach located on the island of Brac. This breathtaking beach is known for constantly changing shape due to tides and winds. Close to Bol, a lovely town well worth exploring, you will have a chance to take a swim or wander around before enjoying a delicious lunch on board. Afterwards, we will continue our cruise to the stunning island of Vis. Formerly used as an important military stronghold, the architecture and beaches of Vis have remained largely untouched and unspoilt. The rest of the day is at your leisure, or you can choose to go on an optional tour in the afternoon. This beautiful island is home to stunning bays, vineyards, and olive groves – and Komiza is a great place to end your optional tour with dinner at one of its excellent ‘konobas’. (B, L)

Your next stop on this cruise is an incredible natural wonder – the Blue Cave on Bisevo. Make sure to explore all this cave has to offer, then continue sailing to Hvar with lunch on board. Upon arrival on the island of Hvar, explore its vibrant town with a guided tour and learn about its history and culture. In the evening, you’re free to check out the restaurants owned by locals. (B, L)

Please Note: The Blue Cave can only be visited if the weather is permitting, and it will be up to your Captain on the day of your visit to decide whether it is safe to do so. Your Captain will keep you updated on the situation.

On the morning of the fifth day, we will leave this lovely island and continue our cruise to the Island of Korcula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. While en route, you can take a refreshing swim and enjoy lunch on board as we cruise to our destination. Upon arrival, we will explore Korcula Town – the main settlement on the island. On a guided walking tour, we will discover the town’s medieval core and herringbone-patterned streets. This evening is free to enjoy some time in town at your leisure. There are plenty of restaurants and bars from which to choose if you’re looking for some dinner and nightlife. (B, L)

We sail further to the idyllic island of Mljet where you can experience its beautiful National Park at your own pace. Here, you can explore the Great and Small Lake as well as the 12th Century Benedictine Monastery. This park provides the perfect opportunity to relax. Swim or walk along the paths and enjoy the scenery. In the afternoon, we continue our cruise through the Peljesac peninsula and head towards the island of Sipan, where we will anchor in Sipanska Luka or Slano, located on the mainland. Sipan is an idyllic island known for its delicious wine, figs and olives and easy-going atmosphere. If we visit Slano, you can join an Optional Excursion to Ston, a charming town renowned for its well-preserved walls, ancient salt works and oyster and mussel farms. You have some free time before the Captain’s Dinner this evening. The Captain’s Dinner will feature live entertainment. (B, L, D)

Please note: Both Sipan and Slano are offered as port options, though the schedule of the dock and locks or weather conditions may affect which port is used.

This morning we will sail to our final destination, Dubrovnik – a stunning city known as the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’. The impressive 13th-century defence walls enclose its UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town, which centres on its main thoroughfare, the ‘Stradun’. After lunch, enjoy a guided tour of the old town. Afterwards, you will have the rest of the afternoon free to enjoy Dubrovnik at your own pace. If you’d like, take the cable car up to Srd Mountain for breathtaking views of the city and the Elaphiti Islands or perhaps take a stroll down the ‘Stradun’, where you will find plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants to try out.

Your cruise comes to an end after breakfast, so say goodbye to your new friends and crew. (B)
