Arrive in Dubrovnik. The brand new M/S Summer will be docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbor where you start your private cruise, with access to your cabin starting at 1:00 pm. 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, your English speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. Visit the historical center of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the guide shows you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the tour, explore the city on your own, known around the world as The Pearl of Adriatic. Be transferred back to the ship and have your lunch as you sail towards Mljet National Park.
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.
Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća. Its spectacular irregularity of steep-sided natural harbor, authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambiance are simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.
Spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that will intrigue you so much in daylight.
After breakfast, cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, an ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches. Omiš is located at the delta of Cetina River, with its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omiš was for a stronghold of famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation, courage and strength in the long historical fight against The Republic of Venice. Have your lunch after your relaxed walk in Omis. During the afternoon hours, sail towards Split. The English speaking guide will do the afternoon Split City tour and walk you through the historic Diocletian’s Palace. The second largest urban center in Croatia and the seat of the Split- Dalmatia County, Split boasts 1700 years of history. Since 1979 the historic center of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. City’s historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. After the city tour, you will be left on your own to explore Split and have an intimate farewell dinner on your own.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
