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. 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. Captain will wait for all the passengers arriving late at night and these guests will be provided with a dinner. Overnight in Dubrovnik. (D)

Day 2
Dubrovnik - Slano

After breakfast, our 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. 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 we will have a transfer back to the ship. Lunch will be served onboard enroute to Slano located on the mainland with swim stop on 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 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 3
Slano - Mljet - Korčula

This morning we will 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 toward the Island of Korčula, where we shall arrive in the afternoon, docking in the town of Korčula. This historic town is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the most famous world explorers. Our guide will do a tour and walk us through the town’s charming narrow and 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 historical town. (B, L)

Day 4
Korčula - Vis

In the morning, we will continue our cruise to the Island of Vis, with a swim stop enroute. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Vis is rather unique compared to other Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its important strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military stronghold 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 family run restaurants. 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 - Biševo - Hvar

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. After a swim stop and lunch, we will 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 our afternoon arrival, 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 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 historical town. (B, L)

Day 6
Hvar - Bol - Pučišća

We will start our day with a morning departure towards Bol. Bol is famous 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. Have a walk, a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served onboard. After lunch we will continue cruising towards Pučišća, with refreshing swim stops enroute. Pučišća is 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. 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 shall spend a night in this very quiet town. Enjoy the nightfall, as it unifies the distinct features of Pučišća that have intrigued us so much in daylight. Overnight in Pučišća. (B, L)

Day 7
Pučišća - Omiš - Split

After breakfast we 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 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. After a relaxed walk in Omiš we will have lunch onboard. During the afternoon hours we will cruise on towards Split, our last stop. Our guide will do the afternoon 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. 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. (B, L)
