At 7:00 pm, attend a welcome meeting on board and meet the Cruise Director, Captain, the crew and your fellow passengers. Enjoy your dinner on board.
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. 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. On this day, we'll not have lunch on board, so you can spend more time in Dubrovnik and see why this city was deservedly nicknamed “The Pearl of the Adriatic”. Return coach transfer is scheduled between 2 pm and 4 pm (time to be confirmed on the spot). Then we’ll sail out for the Island of Šipan where we’ll anchor in Šipanska Luka or in Slano, located on the mainland. Slano is one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with beautiful beaches, dense pine forest and olive groves, a long cultural tradition and numerous historical monuments. If we stay in Slano, for all who are interested we can organize an optional excursion to Ston, a fortified town famous for 5- kilometer long walls, old saltwork and oysters/mussels farm. Our trip will take us to the oyster farm where we will board the traditional wooden ship and taste fresh oysters with wine directly “at source”.
Reservations and payment on the spot. This night we’ll have dinner on board. Overnight in Šipanska Luka or Slano,
Feel free to explore Mljet National Park (entrance fees are not included), to walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit The Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery dating from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of this pristine National Park. Enjoy your lunch on board while cruising towards the island of Korčula. This historic town is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the most famous world explorers of all times. Join the city tour of Korčula and walk through the town’s charming narrow and cobbled streets. You’ll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.
This morning, cruise towards the Island of Vis with a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Vis is rather unique compared to other Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its important strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for a long time and was consequently spared of the usual tourist development. Beautiful beaches, ecological agriculture, and preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages of this remarkable Croatian island. You will have afternoon and evening free in Vis, to enjoy its unspoiled nature and dine in one of the family-run restaurants.
Start this day with a morning cruise towards the Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white bottom floor, coloring the cave aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon.
However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something that can only be determined on the morning of your visit. For this reason, entrance fees are paid on the spot –if you are lucky enough to visit the cave. After a swim stop and lunch, continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history and culture. You'll learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar, for many centuries. Afterward, you'll be free to enjoy your evening in Hvar, to explore on your own and dine in one of its numerous family-owned restaurants or taverns.
Start this day with a morning departure towards Bol. Bol is famous for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape). As you stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch, continue cruising towards Pučišća, with refreshing swim stops en route.
After lunch we’ll continue cruising towards Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, arriving there during the afternoon. This town - museum is literally packed with palaces, churches, monasteries and towers. A professional English-speaking guide will take us for a city tour of Trogir. Afterward, you’ll have some time on your own, free to explore. This evening we'll have Captain's Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment. Overnight in Trogir,
In the morning we'll sail out for Split, our last port on this cruise, with a swim stop along the way. After lunch, our English-speaking guide will do an afternoon Split City tour, walking us through the world-famous Diocletian Palace. Split is the second-largest urban center in Croatia and the seat of Split-Dalmatia County. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within the Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1979. After the city tour, you'll be left on your own to explore this lively and bustling Mediterranean city and enjoy an intimate farewell dinner on your own. Overnight in Split
