Day 1: Dubrovnik, Croatia | Embark

The M/S Swallow 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: Šipan Island OR Slano

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Dinner
After breakfast your English-speaking guide and coach come to the pier. After an organized panoramic drive and photo stop of breathtaking scenery at a hill above Dubrovnik arrive to the historical center of Dubrovnik, the famous city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. After a city tour with your guide you are left on your own to explore the city, visit City Walls, or take the cable car to the top of the Mount Srđ. Lunch is not included on this day so you have more time in Dubrovnik.

Return coach transfer is scheduled between 15:00 and 16:00 hours (time to be confirmed on the spot). Start your cruise to Šipan Island where you shall anchor in the small picturesque peaceful fishermen’s village of Šipanska Luka. In case dock and lock schedules or weather conditions prevent the ship from anchoring in Šipanska Luka cruise to Slano, located on the mainland.

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 cave has its own 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. If that happens, embark on an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with WWII RAF Airport, along with Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on the East Adriatic.

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 explains 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 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
It is time to say farewell to all your new friends after having breakfast.
