Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Split

You will be met at Split Airport and transferred to Split Port, where your ship will be docked. You can board during the entire day. Join the Welcome Meeting at 1900HRS where the Cruise Director will introduce you 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.

Day 2
Split - Omiš - Pučišća

Our guide will do the morning Split City Tour and walk us through the historical Diocletian Palace. The second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split Dalmatia County, Split boasts 1,700 years of history. Since 1979 the historic centre of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. City’s historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian Palace. At 1200HRS we will start our cruise to Omiš. An ancient town with defensive walls, fortresses and stone churches, Omiš is located at the delta of Cetina River with its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omiš was a stronghold of famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation, courage and strength in the long historical fight against the Republic of Venice. Lunch will be served onboard while we continue our cruise across the Brač Channel, all the way to Pučišća, the largest town on the Island of Brač. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća. Its spectacular irregularity of steep sided natural harbour, authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience are simply unforgettable. The fjord-like inlet of Pučišća meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills, joining the bay’s quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća quarry was exploited by Romans in the antiquity, after which it was abandoned until the reopening in 1455. Stone from Pučišća quarry was used to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, Vienna Parliament and many other famous buildings around the world. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian stonemasonry school. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. We will spend the night in this very quiet town that has intrigued us so much in daylight. Overnight in Pučišća. (B, L)

Day 3
Pučišća - Bol - Hvar

We will start our day with a morning departure towards Bol known for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). As we stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. After lunch we shall continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest island in Croatia. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set. Upon your evening arrival in Hvar, a local guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history and culture. Afterwards, you will be free to explore Hvar and dine in one of its numerous family-owned restaurants or taverns. Overnight in Hvar historical town. (B, L)

Day 4
Hvar - Biševo - Vis

We will start our day with a morning cruise towards Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deeply in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Today, the cave can be approached by a small boat, however, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. Entrance fees are paid on the spot if we are lucky enough to visit the cave. Afterwards we will dock in Vis and have lunch. Vis is truly unique in comparison to other Adriatic islands. Due to its strategic location on the open sea it served as a military stronghold for a long time, for which reason it was untouched by the usual tourist development. You will have an evening free in Vis to explore and dine in one of its family run taverns. Overnight in Vis Town. (B, L)

Optional late afternoon Vis Island Tour excursion
Starting our tour of Vis, our coach will follow the old road that rises above the town and overlooks the bay. After that we descend to the fields and drive through vineyards and olive groves passing by former Allied airport from WWII and then we descend down to Komiža. Free time in Komiža, stunning fishermen's town to have dinner in one of the cosy restaurants. Return to the ship for overnight. Reservations and payment on the spot.

Day 5
Vis - Korčula

We will start our day with a morning departure towards the Island of Korčula, with a swim stop and lunch enroute. In the afternoon, we will arrive to Korčula Town. This town is known as a birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the most famous world explorers. Our guide will take us on a walking tour of the town. You will have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula historical town. (B, L)

Day 6
Korčula - Mljet - Slano

Morning cruise to Mljet Island, where you will be free to explore the Mljet National Park (entrance fees are not included), walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit The Islet of St Mary with its Benedictine Monastery dating from the 12th century and of course, take a swim in the heart of the pristine National Park. Lunch will be served onboard as we continue our cruise to Slano, where we shall arrive in the afternoon. Slano is one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with beautiful beaches, dense pine forest and olive groves, a long cultural tradition and numerous historical monuments. For all who are interested we can organise an optional excursion to Ston, a fortified town famous for its 5-kilometre-long walls, old salt works and oysters/mussels farm. Overnight in Slano. (B, L)

Day 7
Slano - Dubrovnik

In the morning we will depart for Dubrovnik. Upon arrival, our own guide and coach will come to the pier. We will visit the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where our guide will show you the most interesting sights. Following the city tour you will be left on your own to explore Dubrovnik, walk the famous City Walls or take a cable car to the top of Mount Srđ.
