Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Dubrovnik

You will be met at Dubrovnik Airport and transferred to Gruž Port, where your ship will be docked. Embarkation is possible throughout the whole day. Passengers arriving in the morning will not be able to enter their cabins before 1400HRS but can leave their luggage onboard. In case that your ship is not in the port until evening cruise operator will take care of your luggage and organise an excursion for you. At 1900HRS you will have a welcome meeting where the Cruise Director will introduce the crew and where you will meet your fellow passengers. Welcome dinner will be served at 1930HRS. Captain will wait for all the passengers arriving late at night but has to be notified in advance. All the late arriving guests will be provided with a dinner. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (D)

Day 2
Dubrovnik - Slano

After breakfast, an English speaking guide and bus will arrive to the pier. You will visit the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights. After the city tour, you will be left on your own to explore and enjoy this city, known around the world as “The Pearl of the Adriatic”. At 1200HRS you will have a transfer back to the ship. Lunch will be served onboard enroute to Slano, located on the mainland with swim stop along the way. 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 the cruise operator will organise an optional excursion to Ston, fortified town famous for 5km walls, ancient salt pans and oysters/mussels farm. Reservations and payments on the spot. Overnight in Slano. (B, L)

Day 3
Slano - Mljet - Korčula

This morning you will cruise to Mljet where you will be free to explore the National Park (entrance fee is not included, paid directly on the spot), to 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 this pristine National Park. Lunch will be served onboard as you continue your cruise toward the Island of Korčula, where you shall arrive in the afternoon, docking in the town of Korčula. This historic town is known as the birthplace of Marko Polo, one of the most famous world explorers. An English speaking guide will take you on a Korčula tour and walk you through the town’s charming narrow, cobbled streets. You will have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)

Day 4
Korčula - Vis

In the morning you will cruise to the Island of Vis, with lunch onboard and a swim stop enroute. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Compared to other Adriatic islands, Vis is rather unique. Being an important strategic military stronghold for centuries, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture and traditional architecture. Enjoy the afternoon exploring the town of Vis, its picturesque stone streets, pristine beaches and fine taverns. For all who are interested cruise operator will organise an optional Vis Island excursion, ending in Komiža, stunning fishermen's village to have dinner in one of cosy restaurants. Reservations and payments on the spot. Overnight in Vis. (B, L)

Day 5
Vis - Biševo - Hvar

You will start your day with a morning cruise towards Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave. Originally, the entrance to the 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, cave can be entered by a small boat. However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to the Blue Cave, which is something that is not going to be known before the morning designated for your visit. Entrance fees are paid on the spot. After a swim stop and lunch onboard, you will continue cruising along many idyllic coves and bays towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the most popular and attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking 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 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. (B, L)

Day 6
Hvar - Bol - Pučišća

You will start your day with a morning departure towards Bol. Bol is famous for having one of the finest European beaches, called Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn). As you 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 you will continue cruising towards Pučišća, with refreshing swim stops enroute. Pučišća is the largest village 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. Pučišća is also home to the only Croatian Stonemasonry school still operating. Its students carve sculptures from Brač limestone, applying traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. You shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that have intrigued so much in daylight. This evening you will have a Captain’s Dinner onboard. Overnight in Pučišća. (B, L, D)

Day 7
Pučišća - Omiš - Split

After breakfast you will cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, an ancient town with defensive walls, fortresses and stone churches. Omiš is located at the delta of the Cetina River, with its wonderful beaches. For centuries, Omiš was a stronghold of the famous pirates, a symbol of retaliation, courage and strength in the long historical fight against the Republic of Venice. After a relaxed walk in Omiš you will have lunch onboard. During the afternoon hours you will sail on towards Split, your last port of call. An English speaking guide will do the afternoon Split city tour and walk you 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. After the city tour you will be left on your own to explore Split and have an intimate farewell dinner on your own. Overnight in Split.
