Day 1: Dubrovnik, Croatia | Embark

The ship is docked in Dubrovnik's 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.

Day 2: Dubrovnik | Slano

After breakfast, an English-speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. Visit the historical center of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour, explore and enjoy this city, known around the world as The Pearl of Adriatic. At 12:00 a.m., have a transfer back to the ship. Lunch will be served on board en route to Slano, located on the mainland, with a swim stop along the way. 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: Korčula

This morning, have free time to explore Mljet National Park (entrance fees are not included), 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. Have lunch on board and cruise toward the island of Korčula. In the afternoon, arrive in Korčula town, on Korčula Island, the city known as the birthplace of Marko Polo, the famous explorer. Your English-speaking guide leads a Korčula City tour and walks you through narrow, cobbled streets. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.

Day 4: Vis

Morning cruise to Vis Island and enjoy an exclusive swim stop. 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 unique Croatian island.

Day 5: Biseva Blue Cave | Hvar

Today, set sail for Bisevo Island and its Blue Cave.The cave has its own natural entrance, which is 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. This is the reason why entrance fees are paid on the spot.

After a swim stop and lunch, continue cruising towards the sunniest island of Croatia, the island of Hvar, along the many coves and bays along the way. Hvar is one of the most popular and 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. Allow yourself an evening in Hvar to explore and dine at one of the many family-owned restaurants. 

Day 6: Bol | Pučišća

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 for a walk or to have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served on board. After lunch, continue cruising towards Pučišća with refreshing swim stops along the way and for lunch.

Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač and an entirely different experience. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća with its spectacular irregularity of the steep-sided natural harbor, its authentic Mediterranean architecture, and its rustic ambience; the fjord-like inlet meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills to join those quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća Quarry was exploited in Antiquity; the reopening of the quarry took place in 1455 after being unused since Roman times.

It was from this quarry that stone was excavated to build the limestone columns of the White House in Washington, DC, the Parliament House in Vienna, and many other famous buildings all over the world. The only stonemasonry school in Croatia is located in Pučišća where students carve sculptures from Brač limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. Spend the night in this very quiet small town. Nightfall unifies the diverse features of Pučišća that have intrigued you in the daylight.

Day 7: Omiš | Split

After breakfast, take a cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses, and stone churches at the Cetina River delta with beautiful beaches. In the past, Omiš was for centuries a symbol of retaliation, courage, and strength for the famous pirates against the Venetian Republic. After a relaxed walk in Omiš have lunch. During the afternoon hours, sail towards Split, your first and last stop. 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 Diocletian’s Palace. The English-speaking guide takes you on an afternoon Split City tour and walks you through the historical 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.
