During a snack we set off towards the Island of Rab. After our arrival at the beautiful town of Rab, guided tour through the old town. The old town of the island’s capital of the same name with its striking bell towers extends on a narrow, rocky promontory, surrounded on three sides by the sea. Three streets cross the old town, the ‘Lower Street’ with cafes and pubs, the ‘Middle Street’ with boutiques, souvenir shops and ice cream parlours, and the ‘Upper Street’, which leads to the four churches with their bell towers. Dinner onboard and overnight stay. (D)

Day 2
Rab - Zadar

We leave the Kvarner Bay and set course for Dalmatia. After a swimming break and lunch onboard, we arrive at Zadar, the capital of Northern Dalmatia. Upon arrival, the guide will take you on a guided tour of the peninsula's old town, surrounded by mighty walls. The guide will show you the most important sights, such as the Roman Forum, the round Church of St Donatus, St Anastasia Cathedral and the world's unique Sea Organs, whose sound and melodies are determined only by the waves.

Day 3
Zadar - Trogir

Today we visit one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia - Trogir, where we arrive after lunch onboard and a swimming break. Guided tour of Trogir, which is also called "open-air museum town“, because of its old town which is under UNESCO protection. It is simply an experience to stroll through the winding, cobbled lanes and marvel at the medieval vaults and beautiful courtyards. Dinner opportunity in Trogir, overnight stay. (B, L)

Day 4
Trogir - Hvar - Korčula

First, we set course for the Island of Hvar. The island is known for its mild climate and the extensive lavender fields. The harbour of the main town of the same name is situated at the foot of a fortress, from which you have a fantastic view of the offshore group of islands, Pakleni Islands. After approx two hours stay in Hvar and lunch onboard, we head for the small Island of Šćedro for a swimming break. Afterwards, we cruise along the mountainous Pelješac Peninsula to Korčula. Opportunity for dinner in Korčula and overnight stay. (B, L)

Day 5
Korčula– Dubrovnik

Korčula has one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia and is often called "Little Dubrovnik“, because of its fortress-like appearance. After breakfast guided tour of the birthplace of the famous sailor and explorer Marco Polo. After lunch onboard, we leave Korčula and set course for Dubrovnik, where we arrive around 1700HRS. The distance from the harbour to the old town is just a few minutes by bus, which departs in the immediate vicinity of the ship. Departure approximately every 10 minutes, fare approx EUR2, last return at 0200HRS. Opportunity for dinner in Dubrovnik. (B, L)

Day 6

Today you will have the whole day at your disposal to discover Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is not wrongly called the "Pearl of the Adriatic“, as it was one of the most important economic and cultural centres of the Mediterranean during its heyday in the Middle Ages. Today, the old town presents itself to the visitor as a unique “open-air museum” with an abundance of sights. After breakfast, you will be taken on a guided tour of the old town, after which you will be able to discover and enjoy it on your own. Stroll along the famous promenade ‘Stradun’, take a walk over the mighty city walls or take the cable car up to the 415m high Mount Srđ, from where you will have a unique view of the old town and the sea. Opportunity to have lunch in one of the many restaurants, dinner onboard. (B, D)

Day 7
Dubrovnik - Mljet NP

We leave Dubrovnik and set course for the Island of Mljet. After a swimming break and lunch onboard, we moor in Pomena or Polače. A part of the island has been declared a National Park - two saltwater lakes (in the larger of the two lakes there is an islet with a former monastery) are only connected to the sea by a narrow channel. Opportunity to visit the park (entrance with boat trip to the small islet with the monastery approx EUR17 per person payable on site). We recommend a swim in the saltwater lakes, whose temperature is always approx 2°C above the sea temperature. Opportunity for dinner in one of the konobas on Mljet. (B, L)

Day 8
Mljet NP - Vis

Today, we cruise to the "forbidden" Island of Vis. The island was closed to foreign visitors until the end of the 1980s. Where once the runway of an air force base was, wine is now cultivated. Vis, being 45km from the mainland is the most distant populated island in Croatia and was able to preserve much of its originality due to the lack of tourism for a long time. After a swimming break and lunch onboard we enter the harbour of Vis in the late afternoon. Opportunity for dinner in Vis. (B, L)

Day 9
Vis - Split

We lift the anchors again, and after a swimming break with lunch, we arrive to the capital of Dalmatia, Split. The main attraction of Split is the Old Town, which was built from the Diocletian Palace. The UNESCO World Heritage complex is home to 1,700-year-old Roman walls, houses, churches, cafes ... places full of flair! After a guided city tour, there is plenty of time to relax. Opportunity for dinner in Split. (B, L)

Day 10
Split - Skradin - Krka NP - Skradin

After approx four hours, we leave the Adriatic Sea and cruise up the Krka River. We anchor in Skradin, just before the famous Krka Waterfalls. After lunch onboard, we recommend a visit to the waterfalls. Boats depart from Skradin to take you to the National Park. Opportunity to visit the ‘Skradinski Buk’, with 800m the longest and probably most famous part of the waterfalls. This is an impressive natural spectacle, as the Krka falls down in 17 steps with cascades up to 100m wide. Entrance to the National Park including boat transfer approx EUR27 per person payable on site. Opportunity for dinner in Skradin, overnight stay. (B, L)

Dinner opportunity in one of the taverns or konobas in Vodice, overnight stay. (B, L)

Day 12
Vodice - Kornati NP - Dugi Otok

"On the last day of creation, God wanted to crown his work, and so he created the Kornati Islands from tears, stars and breath," wrote the Irish writer George Bernard Shaw. They are the largest and densest collection of islands in the Adriatic Sea - 147 islands, islets and reefs stretch over a length of approx 35km. We pass through the Kornati Islands National Park in its entire length and head for a bay at its northern end for a swim, where we also have lunch onboard. Overnight in one of the fishing villages on the Island of Dugi Otok or the neighbouring islands, where Captain's Dinner is served onboard this evening. (B, L, D)

Day 13
Dugi Otok - Mali Lošinj

Our destination is the Island of Lošinj, which is not only known for having 300 cloudless or only slightly cloudy sunny days a year but is also covered with dense pine forests. With a little luck we might be able to watch dolphins playing in the waves today, because more than 220 dolphins registered by the ‘Adriatic Dolphin Project’ live in the waters around the Island of Lošinj. After lunch and the usual swimming break, we enter the harbour of Mali Lošinj with its colourful houses. Opportunity for dinner in Mali Lošinj. (B, L)
