Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Dubrovnik

You will be met at Dubrovnik Airport and transferred to Gruž Port, where MS Mama Marija will be docked. You can board during the entire day. Welcome meeting will start at 1900HRS, where you will be introduced by Cruise Director to the Captain, crew and your future fellow passengers with whom you will spend a week onboard. Welcome Dinner will be served at 1930HRS. The embarkation will be possible throughout the day. Passengers arriving in the morning cannot enter their cabins before 1300HRS, but they can leave their luggage onboard. Captain will wait for all passengers arriving late at night and these guests will be provided with cold dinner. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (D)

Day 2
Dubrovnik - Šipan or Slano

After breakfast, our tour guide and coach will meet us at the pier. After an organised panoramic drive and photo stop with breathtaking scenery on a hill above Dubrovnik, the guide will show you the most interesting sights of the famous historical city centre, enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. After the tour, you will be left on your own to explore the city, walk the City Walls or take a cable car to the top of the Mount Srđ. Lunch onboard will be replaced by dinner this evening, allowing for more time in Dubrovnik. Return coach transfer is scheduled between 1500HRS - 1600HRS, time to be confirmed on the spot. Departure to the Island of Šipan, where we shall drop anchor in a small, picturesque, fishermen’s village of Šipanska Luka. In case dock and lock schedules, or weather conditions prevent us from anchoring in Šipanska Luka, we will cruise to the mainland village of Slano. Overnight in Šipanska Luka or Slano. (B, D)

Day 3
Šipan or Slano - Mljet - Korčula

This morning, we continue our journey to the island of Mljet. You will have just enough time to explore, walk around the Great and Small Lakes and Islet of St Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century and to swim in the heart of the National Park. Return to the boat for lunch, followed by departure to the Korčula Island. Afternoon arrival to Korčula Town, known as a birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Upon arrival, our guide will do a short tour, walking us through the narrow and cobbled streets of Korčula. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)

Day 4
Korčula - Vis

Cruise continues after breakfast, with swim stop enroute to the Island of Vis, where we should arrive after lunch. Vis is a pearl among Adriatic islands, as its beautiful beaches, preserved nature, ecological agriculture and architecture were left untouched by the development of tourism for many years. Due to its strategic location on the open sea, the island served as a military zone. The balance of the day is at leisure to explore Vis Town. Overnight in Vis. (B, L)

Day 5
Vis - Biševo - Hvar

Morning cruise to the Blue Cave on the Island of Biševo. The cave has a natural entrance, located below the sea level, which requires the visitors to dive deep, only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue cavern. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver colours. However, due to the weather conditions Blue Cave can be inaccessible to visitors, in which case, an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with WWII RAF Airport and beautiful town of Komiža, boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic will be provided instead. After swim stop and lunch we will continue cruising towards the Island of Hvar, Croatia’s sunniest island, passing by many coves and bays along the way. Hvar is one of the most popular tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival to Hvar, a local guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the history, culture and a way of life on the island. We will join a short lavender presentation, where you can learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar Island for centuries. Evening is free to explore and dine in one of the numerous family owned restaurants. Overnight in Hvar. (B, L)

Day 6
Hvar - Bol - Trogir

We start our day with a morning departure towards Bol on the island of Brač, said to have the best beach for swimming in Croatia, Zlatni Rat. We will stop in Bol for a walk, or to have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served onboard. After lunch we will continue cruising towards a small town of Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, also known as an open-air museum town. Afternoon arrival to Trogir, with a view of its stone houses, palaces, churches, monasteries, towers and walls. The town’s main attraction is the Cathedral of St Lawrence, probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia. After a walking tour with our guide, enjoy Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment onboard tonight. Overnight in Trogir. (B, L, D)

Day 7
Trogir - Split

Today we cruise to Split, our last port of call, with a swim stop and lunch enroute. Upon arrival in the afternoon, our guide will do a walking tour through historical Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and it is considered to be over 1,700 years old. Since 1979, the historic centre of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. The historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. After the tour, you will be left on your own to explore the city and have an intimate farewell dinner. Overnight in Split. (B, L)
