Itinerary + Map

DAY 1 Dubrovnik
Welcome to Dubrovnik, the 'Pearl of the Adriatic'! Your adventure begins with a transfer to your vessel in Gruz harbour where embarkation begins at 2:00pm. Feel free to begin your explorations of Dubrovnik before meeting your fellow travellers at a Welcome Dinner on board. D

DAY 2 Dubrovnik - Slano
Start the day with a guided walking tour of Dubrovnik's Old Town. You’ll be introduced to a beautifully preserved medieval city protected by 13th century fortifications and filled with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Once back on the ship you'll continue on to Slano, a delightful picturesque town north of Dubrovnik. Lunch will be served on board and there'll be a chance for a swim on the way too. Upon arrival in Slano take a short boat ride to Ston, an area known for its long tradition of oyster farming. You'll even get a chance to visit an oyster farm and sample the oysters and mussels, perfectly paired with some local wine. Return to Slano where the rest of the day is at your leisure. BL

DAY 3 Slano - Mljet
Early in the morning cruise to the island of Mljet, famous for its stunning National Park and densely forested landscape. After lunch on board and a swim stop, head for the town of Pomena where a visit to Mljet National Park is planned. Discover the park's two turquoise lakes, Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero, meaning Great Lake and Little Lake. Board a small boat and visit the islet of St. Mary to see the Benedictine Monastery built during the 12th century. This evening enjoy a Captain’s dinner aboard the ship. BLD

DAY 4 Mljet - Korcula
Journey on to Korcula, the rumoured birthplace of the renowned merchant explorer Marco Polo. Enjoy a swimming break en route in one of the many secluded bays and coves in the Adriatic. Lunch will be served on board. In the afternoon, arrive in Korcula Town for a walking tour that will take you through the narrow, cobblestone streets. Learn all about the interesting stories and legends of this town including tales on the life of Marco Polo. BL

DAY 5 Korcula – Vis
This morning, head to enigmatic and unspoilt island of Vis. For many years Vis was used as a strategic military base and until 1989, it had been closed off to the general public. As a result the island has retained a remarkable untouched charm. Upon arrival, spend an afternoon at leisure to experience the island’s natural beauty first hand. May we suggest a visit the Archaeological Museum located in a former fortress built by the Austrians in the 19th century, or perhaps a leisurely stroll along the seaside promenade where most of the bars and restaurants are located. Your cruise manager will always be able to provide great tips and recommendations for dinner or points of interest. BL

DAY 6 Vis – Bisevo Blue Cave – Stari Grad
Your first stop today will be the spectacular Blue Cave on the island of Bisevo. The cave’s natural underwater entrance creates a magical deep blue light that engulfs the interior. After this extraordinary experience, continue on towards the town of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, one of the longest and sunniest of Croatia's islands. Along the way enjoy a refreshing swim stop at the Paklinski islands. On arrival in Stari Grad you will have some free time to explore the town at your own pace. Then in the afternoon, embark on a trip to the agricultural masterpiece of Stari Grad Plain which has remained virtually intact since it was created by ancient Greek colonist in the 4th century BC. At this UNESCO protected site you will have an opportunity to witness a beautiful sunset, delight on the local delicacies and feast on a traditional ‘Peka’ dinner at the Hora estate -all this whilst being surrounded by lush olive groves and fields of lavender. BLD

Please note: The Blue Cave is only accessible with small boats through an entrance just 1.5m high so unfortunately it can easily be made inaccessible by bad weather and high waves.

DAY 7 Stari Grad – Bol – Split
Depart Stari Grad in the morning and cruise to Bol, located on the the island of Brac. Once here you will have time to enjoy a swim at the iconic Zlatni Rat beach, also known as the ‘Golden Horn’. Afterwards, continue to the ancient city of Split for a guided walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town. Get acquainted with the incredible Diocletian’s Palace and learn about the rich heritage of the area. As the economic and cultural capital of the Dalmatian coast, Split offers plenty to see and do for all travellers alike. Why not climb the Bell Tower of St Domnius cathedral breathtaking views of the city, or take a walk along the Riva Promenade and peruse the many shops, bars and restaurants? The afternoon will be at your leisure to discover this lively city. BL
