ITINERARY

Welcome to Dubrovnik! Our ship is docked at Gruz harbour and is ready for you to embark from 14.00hrs. You can leave your luggage on board, so you can fully enjoy your day in Dubrovnik, exploring this magnificent town. This evening, join your Captain, crew and fellow passengers for a Welcome Dinner to get the adventure started. (D)

Dubrovnik is a magnificent city that has a long and rich history. Today, you will have a guided tour of the city and some free time to explore on your own afterwards. This city is a World Heritage site and is filled with beautiful architecture and historic sites. After touring the town, come back to the ship as we’ll be sailing to the Sipan island in the afternoon – it’ll be your port of call for the night. We will anchor in Sipanska Luka on Sipan island. Alternatively, we will dock in Slano, a town located on the mainland. In case we direct our ship to anchor in Slano, for the evening, you will have the opportunity to take an Optional Excursion to Ston. The town of Ston is well-known for its impressive walls, salt production, and oyster-mussel farms. On the optional tour, you will have the opportunity to visit an oyster farm and taste some fresh oysters and local wine. (B, 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.

After breakfast, we will cruise to the beautiful National Park of Mljet. Here you can enjoy the tranquil surroundings while exploring the two salt lakes connected by a narrow channel to the sea. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a boat ride to St Mary’s Isle in the Great Lake, where you’ll find an old church and monastery waiting for you! Enjoy lunch on board as we cruise further to Korcula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. It’s a beautiful small town surrounded by medieval walls which makes it look like a miniature Dubrovnik when seen from the sea. In the late afternoon, enjoy a guided sightseeing tour through the streets of the old town that were built in the shape of a fish bone. There is plenty to do in the evening, whether you want to explore the ‘konobas’ or tavernas in the city or just relax in your cabin. (B, L)

Today, we will continue our cruise to the lovely island of Vis. Enjoy lunch on board and a swim stop en route before an early afternoon arrival to 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 to explore Vis in the afternoon. This beautiful island is home to lovely 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 the millennia-long history and culture of the island. 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.

Today we will visit the beautiful Zlatni Rat beach on Brac island. This beach is known for constantly changing shape due to tides. Close to Bol, a charming 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’ll sail to Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its beautiful palaces and churches. On arrival, we’ll have a guided tour of the city. You will learn about its fascinating history and see some of its most popular attractions, including the impressive St Lawrence Cathedral. Later, you will also have some free time to explore Trogir on your own. This evening, enjoy a great time at the Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment. (B, L, D)

In the morning we will sail to Split, our last port of call, with one last swim stop along the way. After lunch, embark on a guided city tour where you will walk through the world-famous Diocletian’s Palace. Witness the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its renaissance and gothic structures that have stood in place for over 1700 years. Tonight, you’re free to explore Split at your leisure and uncover all its charms. (B, L)

The voyage is at an end and it’s time to say goodbye to everyone after breakfast. (B)
