Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Opatija - Krk

Departure at 1300HRS with lunch on board. Late arrivals can join in Krk, the homonymous town of the largest Croatian island. The first swim stop enroute to refresh and enjoy the crystal clear seawater. Krk has diverse villages of various sizes, stunning promenades, dramatic rock faces with tiny islands, and hundreds of hidden bays and beaches. There's a buzz along the waterfront of Krk Town, have a drink in one of the many bars or choose a restaurant for a tasty dinner. Overnight in Krk. (L)

Day 2
Krk - Rab

After breakfast, cruise towards Rab, known as the ‘Island of Love’. On arrival, join a guided tour to see imposing stone walls and Romanesque church towers, churches, palaces, stone streets, and ancient facades. Many streets and squares are open-air galleries, as artists work outside. Do not miss tasting the famous cake ‘rapska torta’. If weather permits, walk up to the Kamenjak Hill and watch the magnificent sunset. Overnight in Rab. (B, L, T)

Day 3
Rab - Zadar

Morning cruise from Rab towards Zadar, travelling by Pag Island with its unusual moon-like landscape. Swim stop on the tiny Maun Island. Upon arrival to Zadar, join a guided tour. Once the metropolis of Dalmatia, today, Zadar is the centre of the region. The rich cultural heritage is visible at every turn; the Roman Forum dating to the 1st century AD; the church of St Donatus dating to the 9th century AD, the most famous medieval basilica and symbol of the city; the imposing and mighty city walls; and numerous palaces and villas of former noble families. Great restaurants line part of the waterfront and the centre of town. Famous, contemporary creations include; the Zadar Sea Organ, one of a kind in the world, listen to the sound; and “Greeting to the Sun” light installation. Overnight in Zadar. (B, L)

Day 4
Zadar - Molat or Olib

Early departure towards Molat or Olib Island, depending on the available port space, in the northern part of the Zadar archipelago. Think pure peace and serenity. Tonight, enjoy the Captain’s Dinner party on board. Overnight in the port. (B, L, D)

Day 5
Molat or Olib - Ilovik - Lošinj

After breakfast and the morning swim, cruise towards Ilovik. It may have only a few hundred inhabitants, but Ilovik has lovely bays and crystal clear water. A short stop before departure towards Lošinj, known as the ‘Sunshine Island’ and for its abundance of pines, wildflowers, and herbs. Lošinj is one of the most popular islands on the northern Adriatic waters for its hidden coves and cool Mediterranean vibe. On arrival, stroll along the pretty waterfront, visit the Museum of Apoxiomenos, or walk up to the Lošinj Aromatic Garden full of indigenous herbs and plants. The small town of Veli Lošinj is easy to reach if you want to explore on foot. Overnight in Mali Lošinj. (B, L)

Day 6
Lošinj - Cres

Departure towards Cres after breakfast and a morning swim. This unspoiled island of long and narrow shape is abundant with olive groves, vineyards, forests of oak, beech, and remarkable stone walls. Cres and Mali Lošinj were once connected as one island, before the Romans dug a narrow channel to separate them. Spend the night in the port of Cres, a typical medieval town. (B, L)

Day 7
Cres - Opatija

After breakfast, departure towards Opatija. The famous Opatija Riviera is best seen from the sea. On arrival in the afternoon, stroll the longest lungomare (seaside promenade) in Croatia or stop in Volosko, a traditional fishing village with some of the best fish restaurants in the country. On the last night on board, have a farewell party under the stars. This would be a great time to swap contact details with new friends and plan the return trip. Many people come back, again and again. (B, L)

Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian Ports, multiple ships are moored side by side. This makes it necessary to cross from one ship to the other where there are gaps in between each ship. Special care must be taken at all times when crossing between the ships, and guests do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it. View from cabin windows and balconies may be obstructed when moored in port and alongside other ships. Cruises are not recommended for those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
