ITINERARY

Welcome to Croatia! You will start your cruise with a transfer to Split harbour, where you will find your ship waiting for you. Once you have settled into your cabin, join a guided tour of Split at 17:00. This ancient city is protected by UNESCO and is full of Roman architecture, the most impressive being Diocletian’s Palace. When the tour is over, come back to the ship and enjoy a welcome reception with cocktails. Get to know your fellow passengers at the party! (D)

Today we’re sailing towards Bol, a small town on the island of Brac. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can take a swim at Zlatni Rat beach, which is nearby. Then, we continue voyaging to Hvar, with lunch on board at the Pakleni Islands. The longest island in the Adriatic, Pakleni is known for its natural beauty and lavender. You’ll arrive in Hvar in the afternoon for a guided tour of this historical town. In the evening, take time to enjoy the many restaurants and bars. (B, L)

Your next stop on this cruise is Bisevo and its famous Blue Cave. This is a magnificent natural wonder that you don’t want to miss. Next, you’ll visit Vis, which has a special charm as it is relatively unspoiled by tourism. Here you’ll have the opportunity to try some of the island’s wines or explore its Roman ruins. (B, L)

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

Today we are sailing for the beautiful island of Korcula. While en route, you can take a refreshing swim and later enjoy a guided walking tour of this charming medieval town. Korcula is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the Mediterranean and has many interesting sights to see. In the evening, you can choose from a variety of restaurants in town to enjoy dinner on your own or join an optional excursion to a small village near Korcula for a traditional Dalmatian dinner. (B, L)

We continue our cruise south, heading towards the island of Mljet, where Greek legend says Odysseus spent years after his capture by Calypso. Join your cruise manager for a stroll around the beautiful salt lakes in the Mljet National Park, and enjoy a boat ride to the lovely Benedictine Monastery on St Mary Islet. Overnight in either Polaca or Pomena. (B, L)

This quaint little town is well known for its preserved walls, salt pans and oysters. The walls are longer than those in Dubrovnik and the harvesting of salt is still completed in the traditional manner. After exploring the town’s ramparts, continue on to Mali Ston to learn about the area’s oysters and taste this delicacy. This evening, enjoy the Captain’s dinner with live entertainment. (B, L, D)

Depart early in the morning for Dubrovnik, where you will find its old town buildings and fortifications charming. Cruise along the city walls while you enjoy a leisurely lunch, and then take a guided walking tour of this magical town. Spend the rest of the evening exploring Dubrovnik at your leisure. (B, L)

Your cruise concludes on arrival in Dubrovnik with a departure transfer for your onward journey. (B)
