Day by day Itinerary

Day 1
Zadar

Check in at Zadar Port at 1700HRS. Free time or optional sightseeing of Zadar, starting at 1730HRS. The city is today the centre of the region and was the metropolis of the Dalmatia region for many centuries. The rich cultural heritage is visible at every turn; the Roman forum which dates to the 1st century AD; the church of St Donatus dating to the 9th century AD, the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city. The imposing and mighty city walls with representative Port and Land gates are from the 16th century AD, and there are numerous palaces and villas of former noble families. Great restaurants line part of the waterfront and the centre of town. Famous, contemporary creations are the Zadar Sea Organ, one of a kind in the world (listen to the sound), and the “Greeting to the Sun” light installation. Overnight in Zadar.

Day 2
Zadar - Molat or Olib

Early departure towards Molat or Olib, depending on availability in the small harbours, islands in the northern part of the Zadar archipelago. Think pure peace and serenity. Tonight, it's the Captain's Dinner party on board. Overnight in the port. (B, L, D)

Day 3
Molat or Olib - Ilovik - Mali Lošinj

After breakfast and a morning swim, cruise towards Ilovik. It may have only a few hundred inhabitants, but Ilovik has lovely bays and crystal-clear water. We make a short stop before leaving for Lošinj known as ‘Sunshine Island’ and 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 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 4
Mali Lošinj - Cres

Departure towards Cres Island after a morning swim. This unspoiled island of long and narrow shape is abundant with olive groves, vineyards, forests of oak and beech, and some remarkable stone walls. Cres and Mali Lošinj once were 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 5
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 your last night on board, maybe have a farewell party under the stars. This would be a great time to swap contact details with your new friends and plan your return. Many people come back, again and again. (B, L)

Day 6
Opatija

Gather for one final breakfast, followed by goodbyes with all the new friends and the crew before they see you off in the port of Opatija. (B)
