CRUISE ITINERARY


Day 1, Saturday: Split

You will be transferred from the Split Airport to the port for embarkation. Get settled in your cabin before attending a Welcome reception this evening. (WR)


Day 2, Sunday: Split – Bol (Brač) – Hvar

After breakfast on board, we set sail. Stop in Bol, a small town on island of Brač, for a swim at the Golden Horn. Enjoy 530 metre long, golden pebble beach, said to be the best in Croatia. It is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Return to your boat for lunch, then head to Hvar, one of the most popular islands in the Adriatic, and a meeting point for the international jetset. The “Croatian Madeira” is also one of the longest islands stretching along the shores of Croatia. A sightseeing tour of Hvar town shows you the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK) and many more historical sights. Your evening is free to explore Hvar on your own. (B, L)

Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbour (during peak season in July and August) port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case transfer by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.


Day 3, Monday: Hvar – Korčula

We depart for the island of Korčula after breakfast, with a stop along the way to swim, cool off and relax, with lunch on board. In the late afternoon we arrive at Korčula, the acclaimed birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo, to spend the night. Enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants of your choice. (B, L)


Day 4, Tuesday: Korčula – Dubrovnik

In the morning we set sail for Dubrovnik, stopping on the way for a swim. Lunch is on board, and in the afternoon we arrive at Dubrovnik, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, known as The Pearl of the Adriatic. Take a walking tour of the old town and enjoy dinner at one of numerous local restaurants of your choice. (B, L)


Day 5, Wednesday: Dubrovnik – Mljet

Day 6, Thursday: Mljet – Pučišća (Brač)

After visiting Omiš set sail to Split with a stop along the way to swim, cool off and relax, if weather permits, with lunch onboard. In the late afternoon we arrive in Split to take a guided tour of the historical centre of city which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Your evening is free in Split. (B, L)
