(Accommodations, Split)


Your morning is free, and after checking out of your hotel, transfer to the port to board your ship. Over a welcome drink and a snack, meet your Cruise Director and the staff, and get acquainted with the rules and safety measures of the ship. Your journey begins with a dinner on board and overnight in Omiš.

(Breakfast, Split, Dinner & Accommodations, on Ship)


Waking up to the dramatic backdrop of the charming town of Omiš will probably entice you to travel up the river Cetina and through its canyon in our optional tour (not included). Later, you will be able to compare this bit of hinterland with the lovely island of Brač, the homeland of 'the Croatian marble'. You've probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC, but the tour to the still-operating stone masonry school in PučiŜća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Then back to the mainland for a visit to Split. Whether you explore on your own or join our walking tour, don't miss the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. Originally planned as his retirement estate, today it is the lively city center of Croatia's second largest city. Enjoy your evening in Split and dinner will be on your own.

(Breakfast, Lunch & Accommodations, on Ship)


When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National Park. A place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, you'll find the park is definitely worth a visit. After returning to the seaside, visit Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir is a protected UNESCO site. You'll find a similar site in Ŝibenik with the Cathedral of St. James. Rolling down the sloping hills, and towered by the immense fortress of St. Michael, Ŝibenik is a sight to behold from every perspective. A walking tour will introduce you to Ŝibenik's great claim to its Renaissance past with the aforementioned Cathedral of St. James. Explore its winding stone lanes, then enjoy dinner in a restaurant of your choice before returning to the ship.

(Breakfast, Lunch, & Accommodations, On Ship)


Enjoy the stunning waterfront of Ŝibenik as you navigate down the narrow channel of St. Anthony out to the open seas. Today you will sail to the island of Vis. You'll recognize its main settlement by the numerous masts crisscrossed over the image of its seafront facades. Comprised of the newer, 19th-century harbor area, and the historic, medieval corner, the past of Vis spans over two millennia. Hence the colorful array of heritage in this small settlement ranges from a Greek cemetery and Roman baths, to an English fort and Yugoslav militia tributes. Join an optional guided tour (not included) to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis. Your guide can also make some suggestions regarding dinner this evening.

(Breakfast, Lunch & Accommodations, On Ship)

Hvar - Korčula:

Enjoy a breakfast with a view on your morning sail to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1200 Croatian islands. This jet-set favorite is also the island with the most UNESCO-listed heritage in the entire world, so consider joining our guided tour. Then, hop over to Korčula Island, one of the largest islands in the Adriatic, known for its signature lush dark forests. You'll know Korčula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town's facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world renowned traveler Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own, or in an optional walking tour. You'll overnight in Korčula and this evening, enjoy the Captain's Dinner on board.

(Breakfast, Dinner & Accommodations, On Ship)


Continue to another green island, this time Mljet. The national park on the island is the home of two salty lakes connected to the sea via a narrow canal. Nature lovers will get a thrill from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking to the small inlet in the center of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, join our optional excursion (not included), but whatever you do, do not pass on setting foot on Mljet! Enjoy a lunch on board followed by a refreshing dip before setting sail back to the mainland and the small settlement of Slano. In vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand: potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. Our optional tour the Taste of Dalmatia (not included) highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano, where we are docked overnight. Dinner will be on your own.

(Breakfast, Lunch & Accommodations, On Ship)


After breakfast, you'll depart Slano and set sail to Croatia's "Pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik. Glimpse at its beauty sailing beneath the mighty City Walls, much in the same way its enemies and allies used to, before dropping anchor in the port of Gruž. The walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town takes you by the world-famous landmarks, strolling down the same streets that the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood, all utilized for filming. Whatever you might consider to be the town's top attraction, Dubrovnik's city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic, which successfully rivaled the Venetian Republic. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glam, as you will have many options for dinner in the Old Town.

(Breakfast, Lunch & Accommodations, On Ship)


Enjoy a farewell breakfast before saying goodbye your fellow travelers and crew; then disembarking after breakfast. Transfer to your Dubrovnik hotel to spend the last evening at your leisure.

(Breakfast, On Ship; Accommodations, Dubrovnik)
