Cruise Itinerary

 

Day 1, Saturday: Dubrovnik

Day 2, Sunday:  Dubrovnik - Slano

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before joining a guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded by immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous Gothic and Baroque facades line up as you walk the same streets as the cast and crew of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. The merchant power equal to the one of Venetian Republic, Dubrovnik was a large seafaring force. Dubrovnik’s nobility and captains fancied the small town of Slano for their summer estates and you will understand why as soon as you arrive in the afternoon. Explore this quaint seaside settlement on your own or join an optional Taste of Dalmatia tour to the town of Ston, known for many things gourmand, potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. (B, L)


Day 3, Monday:  Slano - Mljet - Korčula

Breakfasts onboard are always served with a view. Enjoy the start of your day before arriving to the green Island of Mljet. The National Park on the island 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! After a refreshing dip along the way, visit Korčula. You’ll know Korčula was 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 get to see anywhere 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 4, Tuesday:  Korčula - Hvar - Vis

Enjoy breakfast with a view and a morning cruise to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1,200 Croatian islands. This jet set favourite is also the island with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stari Grad Plains. Upon arrival, joining a guided tour of Hvar Town. In the afternoon, hop over to the Island of Vis, the most distant of all inhabited islands in Croatia. Closed off to the public for the larger part of the 20th century for its role as an important naval base, Vis and its nature remain incredibly preserved even today. Captain's Dinner onboard and overnight in Vis. (B, D)

 

Day 5, Wednesday:  Vis - Šibenik

You will wake up to the views of Vis Town waterfront, comprised of the newer, 19th century harbour area and the historic, medieval corner. Spanning over two millennia, the array of heritage in this small settlement might not surprise, ranging from a Greek cemetery and Roman baths to an English fort and naval tributes. Join an optional guided tour to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis, before setting sail towards the mainland. Arriving to Šibenik, snatch a spot on the deck at its stone waterfront, nestled beneath the impressive St Michael Fortress, remains a sight to behold. A walking tour will introduce you to Šibenik’s great claim to Renaissance, the one centuries ago, when the town’s UNESCO protected Cathedral of St James was constructed, and the present day, with 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 6, Thursday:  Šibenik - Skradin - Krka NP - Trogir - Split

After breakfast you will join an excursion to Skradin and Trogir. Coach will take you through the karst Šibenik hinterland to Skradin, where you will have time to explore one of the most beautiful national parks in Croatia. On our way to Split we will make another quick stop in Trogir, a small town part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Except for the green parks the entire island is filled by spectacular constructions of stone-houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers and walls. You will have free time to pay a visit to the main attraction in Trogir, the Cathedral of St Lawrence which is probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia. Finally, we arrive to Split Old Town, where you will enjoy a walking tour with the local guide who will show you monumental Diocletian Palace, which was built over 1700 years ago. Because of its historical and architectural importance, the whole Old Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Later, you can join the locals in enjoying a cup of coffee on their much beloved seaside promenade. Dinner onboard and overnight in Split. (B, D)


Day 7, Friday:  Split - Pučišća - Omiš

Breakfast onboard and early departure to Pučišća on the Island of Brač. Pučišća is nested in a beautiful bay, surrounded by the stone quarries that yield some of the whitest and best quality limestone in the world. Suffice to say that pillars of this snow-white stone decorate the facade of the White House and other landmarks all over the world. After docking at Pučišća, you can join a short visit to the Stonemasonry School nearby, where you will learn of the Brač limestone, centuries-old tradition of stonemasonry and the unconventional tools they use. Depart for Omiš with lunch served onboard. Afternoon arrival to Omiš, a small town built below the steep mountains at the mouth of the Cetina River.
