Cruise Itinerary

 

Day 1, Saturday: Split

You will be transferred from Split Airport to Split 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 dinner onboard and overnight in Split. (D)

 

Day 2, Sunday:  Split - Hvar - Vela Luka

Today is the day for enjoying the highlights of the central Dalmatian coast. After breakfast, choose to explore Split on your own or join a walking tour of Split’s famous Diocletian Palace. Built to house the Roman Emperor, the Palace grew into a city. With a local guide, discover the secrets of centuries past in what is today the vibrant core of Dalmatia’s largest city. Then, hop over to the Island of Hvar, known for the purple of its lavender fields, the red of its wine and the Venetian feel of its hotspot Hvar Town. Join a guided walking tour of Hvar or explore on your own before taking a refreshing swim at Pakleni, the wondrous neighbouring islands. Finally, a short cruise takes you to Vela Luka on Korčula Island, where you will arrive just in time for a relaxing late afternoon. Captain's Dinner onboard and overnight in Vela Luka. (B, D)

 

Day 3, Monday:  Vela Luka - Pomena - Slano

Your captain will choose a secluded bay to hop in the sea and start the day. Surrounded by the deep green forests which earned Korčula its name and fame, meditate upon the sound of crickets and silence as you immerse yourself in the essence of this region, the crystal-clear blue sea. Then continue to another green island, this time Mljet. The National Park on the island is the home of two saltwater lakes connected with the sea by a narrow canal. Nature lovers will get a kick 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 miss out on Mljet! Spend the evening in the small settlement of Slano on the mainland, once adored by Dubrovnik sea captains. Why, becomes self-evident as soon as you take your first stroll along the waterfront. Overnight in Slano. (B, L)


Day 4, Tuesday:  Slano - Lopud - Dubrovnik

In the vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand, strong 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 before cruising out to Dubrovnik. Midway, a dip on Lopud Island gets you up and ready to join a guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded in immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous facades line up as you walk the same streets as the cast and crew of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glamour, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik for overnight. (B, L)

 

Day 5, Wednesday:  Dubrovnik - Perast - Kotor - Dubrovnik

In the morning, venture east, past the serene Konavle Valley, and across the border with Montenegro. The scenery turns more dramatic, with snowcapped mountains looming over the turquoise Adriatic Sea. Driving around Boka Bay, its beauty entices, with settlements inhabited as early as the Illyrian and Roman times charmingly dotting the shoreline. Discover the picturesque Perast with its quaint seafront and Our Lady of the Rocks church poised on a manmade islet facing the town. Next, visit the UNESCO-listed town of Kotor. Compare it to Dubrovnik and find distinct Venetian heritage as the main difference. After your guide introduces you to a maze of curvy alleys and sun-kissed piazzas, wander around on your own before heading back. Upon return, dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik/Dubrovnik area. (B, D)


Day 6, Thursday:  Dubrovnik - Elaphiti Islands - Korčula

The far south of Croatia holds many gems. Scattered between Dubrovnik and Korčula, the Elaphiti archipelago is alluring for its pristine islands which were once an oasis for local seamen to build their ships and for captains to build their estates. Today, the Elaphiti are praised for their quaint ambiance. Stop at one of the three inhabited ones for a stroll and a swim, before lunch onboard enroute to 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 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 7, Friday:  Korčula - Pučišća - Omiš

Breakfast is served over the stunning views of the playfully dispersed archipelago of Korčula and followed by a scenic cruise around the tips of Pelješac Peninsula and Hvar Island, perhaps even a refreshing dip along the way. Stop to visit the home of the Croatian marble, the Island of Brač. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the tour to the still-operating Stonemasonry School in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back on the mainland, 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 an optional boat excursion. Overnight in Omiš. (B, L)

 

Day 8, Saturday:  Omiš - Split

Early morning departure from Omiš to Split. Disembarkation after breakfast by 0900HRS, followed by transfer to Split Airport. (B)
