Day 1: Dubrovnik, Croatia | Embark

The M/S Mama Marija is docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbor where you can board during the entire day. The welcome meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. where you are introduced by your Cruise director to the Captain, your crew, and of course your future fellow passengers. Welcome dinner is served at 7:30 p.m.

Passengers arriving in the morning cannot enter their cabins before 1:00 p.m. but they can leave luggage on board. The captain waits for all passengers arriving late at night and these guests are provided with dinner.

Day 2: Dubrovnik | Slano

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
After breakfast, our English-speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. We’ll visit the historical center of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik, known as “The Pearl of Adriatic”.  After the city tour, you’ll be left on your own to explore around, visit City Walls or take a scenic cable car to the top of Mount Srđ with its stunning 360° vista.

Return coach transfer is scheduled at between 12:30-13:00. Lunch onboard and sail out for Slano, located on the mainland. Slano is one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with beautiful beaches, dense pine forests and olive groves, a long cultural tradition and numerous historical monuments.

For all who are interested, we will organize an optional excursion to Ston, a fortified town famous for 5-kilometer long walls, old saltwork and oysters/mussels farm. Reservations and payment on the spot.
Overnight in Slano.

Day 3: Mljet National Park | Korcula

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Start your day with a morning departure towards Mljet National Park. You have just enough time to explore the park, to walk around the Great and Small Lake and Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century, and, of course, to take a swim in the heart of the National Park. Entrance fees to National Park Mljet are included. Lunch on board and cruise toward the island of Korčula. In the afternoon arrive to Korčula town, the city known as the birthplace of Marko Polo, the famous explorer. The English-speaking guide walks you through the narrow and cobbled streets of Korčula City. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.

Day 4: Korcula | Vis

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
This morning cruise to Vis Island. Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years - due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years. Beautiful beaches, preserved nature, ecological agriculture, and preserved traditional architecture are unique advantages of this Croatian island where you spend the afternoon.

Day 5: Bisevo Blue Cave | Hvar

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Today, cruise to Island Bisevo with its Blue Cave. The Blue Cave has its natural entrance located below sea level, which requires that its visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors. However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something you shall not know before the morning designated for your visit. In case the sea condition prevents you from entering the Blue Cave, you will get a full ticket refund.

After a swim stop and lunch continue cruising towards the sunniest island of Croatia – the island of Hvar. Hvar is one of the most popular, very attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English-speaking guide walks you throughout the town introducing you to the history, culture, and way of life on this island and explaining how lavender was traditionally farmed on the Island of Hvar for centuries. Have an evening in Hvar free on your own to explore and dine in one of the numerous family-owned restaurants.

Day 6: Bol | Trogir

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Start your day with a morning departure towards Bol, said to have the best beach for swimming in Croatia named Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). Stop in Bol and enjoy this nice Dalmatian town during a walk, or have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served on board. After lunch continue cruising towards Trogir, a small town that is on UNESCO’s List of World Cultural Heritage. In the afternoon arrive to this small town-museum, with its stone houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers, walls, and especially the main attraction in Trogir – the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia.

Day 7: Trogir | Split

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
Take a morning cruise to Split, your last port on this cruise, with a swim stop along the way. The English-speaking guide shows you Split's historical Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban center in Croatia and the seat of Split and Dalmatia County. It is traditionally considered to be over 1,700 years old. Since 1979 the historic center of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. The historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. After the city tour you are left on your own to explore the city and have an intimate farewell dinner on your own.

Day 8: Split, Croatia | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
