Cruise Itinerary


Day 1, Saturday: Dubrovnik

Transfer from Dubrovnik Airport to Gruž 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 Dubrovnik. (D)


Day 2, Sunday:  Dubrovnik - Elaphiti Islands - Korčula

The far south of Croatia holds many gems. Start with a walking tour of Dubrovnik, also known as "The Pearl of the Adriatic" or "King’s Landing". Whatever you might consider to be the town’s main charm, Dubrovnik’s mighty city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic which successfully rivalled Venice. Korčula Town is your next stop, with your journey interrupted only by a refreshing dip at one of the Elaphiti Islands. 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. Upon arrival, join a guided walking tour of the Old Town. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)


Day 3, Monday:  Korčula - Hvar - Milna

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 a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stari Grad Plains. Join a guided walking tour of Hvar Town or explore on your own. Leaving Hvar in the late afternoon, we will set sail for Milna on the Island of Brač. Dinner and overnight in Milna. (B, D)


Day 4, Tuesday:  Milna - Split

After a short cruise we will reach Split. Roman Emperor Diocletian spared no expense for the construction of a sumptuous residence, importing best quality marble, sphinx and columns. The original palace was modified by its new inhabitants during the Middle Ages but making it even more beautiful and what it is today, the city's living heart. Its narrow streets hide passageways and courtyards, some deserted and eerie, others lively and animated by the music from bars and cafes, or by the everyday life of its residents. Join a walking tour of Split with an expert guide. In the afternoon you can 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. Overnight in Split. (B, D)


Day 5, Wednesday:  Split - Trogir - Šibenik

Leaving Split, first stop will be in Trogir, a small Dalmatian town listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, situated on an island and squeezed in between the mainland and the larger Island of Čiovo. Except for the green parks, the entire island is occupied 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. Final destination of the day will be Šibenik, where you can join a walking tour and stroll with your guide through the narrow and steep streets, passing by the most important monument, the Gothic-Renaissance Cathedral of St James located on the main town square. By its beauty, construction particularities and style characteristics, it represents not only the major and the most valuable monument of the town’s architectural heritage, but it is also a unique monument of the European sacral architecture, included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List since 2001. Overnight in Šibenik. (B, L)


Day 6, Thursday:  Šibenik - Zadar

This morning, you will experience northern Dalmatian beauties and history. Cruising between numerous islands in the late afternoon, our cruise will reach our final port of call, Zadar. Upon arrival you can join a guided walking tour 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. Overnight in Zadar. (B, L)

 

Day 7, Friday:  Zadar - Plitvice Lakes - Zadar

When cruising along the Croatian coast, to surpass the beauty around you, may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Plitvice Lakes. Situated in a thick forest, the Plitvice Lakes are considered one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in the world. Sixteen lakes, connected by 92 waterfalls, cascade through its picturesque surrounding. The Plitvice Lakes were declared a National Park in 1949, and since 1979 they have been on the UNESCO World Natural Heritage List. The park's attractions also include several caves and a great variety of flora and fauna. A guided tour of the park lasts for approx three and a half hours, including a boat ride and a walking tour. Join us and enjoy the magical beauty of the lakes and waterfalls creating spectacular scenery. Return to Zadar for Captain’s Dinner onboard and overnight. (B, D)


Day 8, Saturday:  Zadar

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