CRUISE ITINERARY


Day 1, Sunday: Dubrovnik

Check in from 1:00pm onwards (Gruž harbour) with dinner as your first meal. Due to the many different flight arrivals the first overnight is planned in Dubrovnik - a unique town on the Adriatic. The special charm of this old town are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic. A larger part of the monuments of history and culture belong to the fine but modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of the Gothic style. Use the afternoon to explore the city walls and plan what to do on your last night of the cruise when we return to this wonderful city. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (D)


Day 2, Monday: Dubrovnik – Mljet

After breakfast we continue our journey towards the island and national park Mljet. Lunch on board. The whole afternoon is free to enjoy the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful island. In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, one can visit an old abbey and church, or just use a small boat to roam around the National park. Bicycles can also be hired to cycle around the paths that surround the lakes or cars for those wanting to go further. Overnight in port Polača/Pomena. (B, L)


Day 3, Tuesday: Mljet – Hvar

Early in the morning we depart towards the little island Šćedro where we will have enough time to relax and refresh in the clean, crystal blue sea. Departure for Hvar after lunch. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. Here we can find the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower; also the oldest community theatre in Europe was founded here in 1612. Town of Hvar offers plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine and jet-set island. (B, L)

 

Day 4, Wednesday: Hvar – Korčula   

During breakfast departure for Korčula, the birthplace of famous explorer Marco Polo. Lunch on board in front of Lumbarda bay. Arrive in Korčula in the afternoon where everyone is free to do their own sightseeing. Surrounded by ancient walls and fortified bastions Korčula’s old town is very well preserved with its layout and structure dating back to 13th century. Overnight in port. (B, L)

 

Day 5, Thursday: Korčula – Trstenik  

Leave Korčula and continue our cruise towards the little village and harbour Trstenik on Pelješac peninsula, where we will swim in the afternoon and spend the night. Lunch on board. Chief occupations include farming, viniculture (the famous Plavac Mali wine, the ancestor of the Californian Zinfandel), fishing and tourism. The coastline along the town and the neighboring islets is covered by pine groves, offering fine ambience for swimming. The famous Grgić winery is situated here – have a walk and taste some of their lovely wines. (B, L)


Day 6, Friday: Trstenik – Šipan

Early in the morning we continue our trip towards the Elafiti islands. a group of islands west of Dubrovnik. They include Šipan, Lopud and Koločep (Kalamota). They attract many tourists with their beautiful scenery and sandy beaches. Swimming and lunch is planned at one of the smaller Elafiti islands. Šipan, the largest island of the Elafiti, is also the most distant from Dubrovnik. This is where we will spend the night. (B, L)


Day 7, Saturday: Šipan – Dubrovnik

Early departure for Dubrovnik with breakfast on route. Enjoy the beautiful sights of nature along the way towards “the heaven on earth” - according to the famous writer George Bernard Shaw. Lunch on board and arrival to Dubrovnik early in the afternoon (around 14:00h) and have a whole afternoon free to explore Dubrovnik or go for a swim. You can explore Dubrovnik on your own or join our guided tour of Dubrovnik with an English speaking guide. Take a walk through Stradun – both a street and a square, a promenade inside the city walls. For those of you with more enthusiasm we recommend a walk on top of the 1940m long city walls or take a cable car ride to top of Srđ mountain to get scenic views of the old city! Overnight in the Gruž port of this magical town. (B, L)
