Day 2
Split - Bol - Hvar

We will start our day with a morning departure towards Bol, famous for having one of the finest beaches in Europe, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). As we stop in Bol, you can relax in this charming Dalmatian town. Have a walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served onboard. After lunch, we'll continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive Croatian tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set. Upon our evening arrival to Hvar, a local guide will walk you through the town, introducing you to the island’s way of life, its rich history and culture. You will learn how lavender was traditionally farmed on Hvar for many centuries. Afterwards, you are free to enjoy your evening in Hvar, to explore on your own and dine in one of its numerous family owned restaurants or taverns. Overnight in Hvar Town. (B, L)

Day 3
Hvar - Mljet

After breakfast, we will cruise to Mljet National Park, passing by the magnificent shores of Korčula Island’s archipelago, with a swim stop and lunch enroute. Upon arrival to Mljet National Park, you will spend the afternoon exploring the park with entrance fees included, walk around the Great and Small Lake, and visit the Islet of St Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the heart of this pristine National Park, before Captain’s Dinner onboard this evening. Overnight in Mljet. (B, L, D)

Day 4
Mljet - Dubrovnik

Morning departure to the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous town enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will cruise alongside Dubrovnik City Walls and fortifications and have lunch onboard directly in front of the historical centre, where you will have a chance to take unforgettable photos of breathtaking Dubrovnik. After relaxed time in front of the Dubrovnik City Walls, we will embark on a small boat that will take us directly into Old Town port, where a local guide will wait for us and show us the most interesting sights of the Old Town. After the walking tour, you will be left on your own to explore the town, visit the City Walls, or take the cable car to the top of Mount Srđ and have an intimate dinner. Return coach transfer will be organised from Pile Gate to Gruž Port. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (B, L)

Day 5
Dubrovnik - Elaphiti Islands - Korčula

After breakfast, we will start our pleasant cruise to the Island of Korčula. On our way, we will cruise by magnificent shores of the Elaphiti Islands, to the northwest of Dubrovnik. We shall stop for a swim before lunch and in the afternoon, we will arrive in Korčula Town. Korčula is the town best known as a birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. We will join our local guide on a sightseeing tour, walking us through 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 6
Korčula - Vis

In the morning, we will continue our cruise to the Island of Vis, with a swim stop enroute. Arrival to Vis is expected after lunch. Vis is rather unique compared to other Croatian islands. Due to its important strategic location on the open sea, it served as a naval zone for a long time and was consequently spared of the usual tourist development. Beautiful beaches, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture make up the advantages of this remarkable island. You will have afternoon and evening free in Vis to enjoy its unspoilt nature and dine in one of the family run restaurants. Overnight in Vis Town. (B, L)

Day 7
Vis - Biševo - Split

We will start our day with a morning cruise towards the Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to the Blue Cave was located below sea level, which required visitors to dive deep in order to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. Sunbeams, penetrating through the cave’s submarine opening get reflected from the white seafloor, colouring the cave in aquamarine and objects in the water silver, creating a truly stunning and magical natural phenomenon. 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 relaxed cruise and arrival in Split, our local guide will do a 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 more than 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. After the city tour, you will be left on your own to explore Split and have a dinner on your own. Overnight in Split. (B, L)

Guests are not permitted to bring beverages onboard the vessel that have been purchased onshore. All drinks must be purchased onboard.

Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian Ports, ships are moored side by side.

Special care must be taken at all times when crossing between the vessels and guests do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it. Cruises are not recommended for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
