Cruise Itinerary

 

Day 1, Saturday: Zadar

Transfer from Zadar Airport to Zadar Port, where embarkation starts from 1400HRS. Over a welcome drink and a snack, meet your Cruise Director and the crew and get acquainted with the rules and safety measures. Your journey begins with a dinner onboard and overnight in Zadar. (D)

 

Day 2, Sunday:  Zadar - Šibenik

After breakfast you can join a walking tour of Zadar. Your walk with a guide will take you through the Roman Forum from the 2nd century BC, passing by the 9th century pre-Romanesque church of St Donatus as well as St Anastasia Cathedral. Early afternoon, cruise across Zadar archipelago will start to reveal the beauties of Dalmatia. In the late afternoon arrival in the port of Šibenik, a sight to behold from every perspective rolling down the hillslopes towered by the immense fortress of St Michael. A walking tour will introduce you to Šibenik’s great claim to Renaissance, the one centuries old, when the town’s Cathedral of St James, a UNESCO World Heritage Site was built, and the present day, the town known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Experience its stone alleys and great cuisine in an evening on your own. Overnight in Šibenik. (B, L)

 

Day 3, Monday:  Šibenik - Trogir - Split

Enjoy the stunning waterfront of Šibenik as you navigate down the narrow channel of St Anthony out to the open sea. Today you will cruise to Split with Trogir enroute, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage. Join a guided walking tour in the early afternoon. Our final port of the day will be Split, explore it on your own or join a walking tour to learn about the Diocletian Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city centre. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living. Overnight in Split. (B, L)

 

Day 4, Tuesday:  Split - Hvar

Enjoy breakfast and free time in Split or take an optional trip to the mainland and get stunned by the dramatic rocks backing the lovely settlement of Omiš right at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River Canyon on a boat excursion. Afternoon we are cruising to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1,200 Croatian islands. This jet set favourite is also the island with a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stari Grad Plains. Join a guided tour of Hvar Town. Dinner onboard and overnight in Hvar. (B, D)


Day 5, Wednesday:  Hvar - Korčula

Morning departure from Hvar to Korčula Island, one of the largest islands in the Adriatic, known for its signature lush dark forests. You’ll realise Korčula was once a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will see on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world-renowned traveller Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own or join a walking tour. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)


Day 6, Thursday:  Korčula - Mljet - Slano

Continue your cruise to another green island, this time Mljet. Island’s National Park is the home of two saltwater lakes connected to the sea by a narrow canal. Nature lovers will get a thrill from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking to the small islet in the centre of the lake, charming with its 12th century Monastery of St Mary. Alternatively, join an optional excursion, but whatever you do, do not pass on setting foot on Mljet! Enjoy a refreshing dip before setting sail back to the mainland and the small settlement of Slano. Captain’s Dinner onboard and overnight in Slano. (B, D)

 

Day 7, Friday:  Slano - Dubrovnik

Take in the last of the Slano’s atmosphere over breakfast. In the vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand, potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. An optional Taste of Dalmatia tour highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano. In the early afternoon, we will cruise to Croatia’s southernmost gem and the renowned hotspot, Dubrovnik. Glimpse at its beauty cruising beneath the mighty City Walls, much in the same way its enemies and allies used to, before dropping anchor in the port of Gruž. A walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town takes you by the world-famous landmarks, strolling down the same streets that the cast and crew of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood walked. Whatever you might consider to be the town’s main drawcard, Dubrovnik’s city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic which successfully rivalled the Venetian Republic. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glamour, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik for overnight. (B, L)

 

Day 8, Saturday: Dubrovnik

Enjoy a farewell breakfast before disembarking by 0900HRS. You will be transferred to Dubrovnik Airport. (B)
