Legend: B – breakfast, L – lunch, D – dinner
Day 1: Split Arrival (D)
On your arrival to Split, you’ll be able to board the ship from 13:00pm, and later, take part in an evening dinner, where you’ll have the opportunity to get to know your fellow passengers and crew. If you arrive early, then you’ll have plenty of time to have a walk around the city, strolling along the Riva, Split’s chic seafront promenade or taking a walk through the historic cobbled passageways and impressive architecture of the iconic Diocletian’s Palace, before settling aboard the ship in the evening.
Day 2: Split – Krka National Park – Zadar (B,L)
We’ll set sail early in the morning to begin our journey towards Zadar, stopping off at Primošten on the way to visit the stunning Krka National Park and its collection of waterfalls and natural lakes that are surrounded by miles of lush forestry. We’ll stay here until lunch, exploring the nature trails and passing alongside the gorgeous falls at Roški Slap, and the petite Visovac Island that’s home to a fairytale like 15th-century monastery. Afterwards, we’ll set sail once more, arriving in Zadar in time for an afternoon walking tour of the historic centre, taking in highlights such as the 16th century Venetian city walls and the towering Zadar Cathedral.
Day 3: Zadar – Kornati National Park – Zlarin (B,L,D)
We’ll sail away from Zadar towards the otherworldly Kornati National Park, passing between a huge collection of islands some topped with forests and others with white karst hills that form stark cliff sides, deep cave systems and beautiful grottoes that are striking against the vivid backdrop of the Adriatic. We’ll spend half of the day exploring the islands and stopping for swim stops before sailing onwards to Zlarin in the Sibenik archipelago, a beautiful village known for its vibrant corals and rustic charm. Tonight we’ll enjoy the captain’s dinner with starlit views of the island.
Day 4: Zlarin – Vis (B,L)
We’ll leave Zlarin in the early morning to Vis Island, which has a wonderful lost in time feel to it, with its pretty fishing villages and charming unspoiled landscapes that were kept a secret until recent times due to their use as a Yugoslav naval base. We’ll arrive in time to take a walking tour of the horseshoe-shaped bay of Vis on the north side of the island, which is home to a charming collection of 17th century town houses and a warren of stony alleyways that are filled with rustic cafes and pretty piazzas.
Day 5: Vis – Biševo – Hvar (B,L)
After a night spent off the coast of Vis, we’ll set sail to the small island of Biševo to visit the unique Blue Cave, which is cast in an eerie blue light for just a short time every day, when the sun breaks through a natural entrance to the cave and reflects through the water. Afterwards, we’ll sail to our next destination: Hvar, stopping in one of the island’s bays for a swim stop, and arriving in Hvar Town in the afternoon for a walking tour of the glamorous old town before enjoy the evening however you please. We suggest sampling some fantastic Dalmatian cuisine in one of Hvar’s world-class restaurants, either in the chic harbour or in the characterful streets of the old town.
Day 6: Vis – Bol/ Milna (B,L)
Today we’ll sail along the gorgeous waters of the Adriatic to our final destination on our northern Dalmatia Cruise: Brac and the enchanting Bol, home of the world famous Zlatni Rat Beach, which stretches out as a sandy horn into azure sea. We’ll drop anchor either in the port of Bol or on the north west side of the island on the shores of Milna, a quaint fishing village with a picturesque marina that looks out to the nearby island of Solta, and has a tiny population of 800.
Day 7: Vis – Bol/ Milna – Split (B,L)
This will be our last morning of sailing as we head back to Split, pausing briefly for a private swim stop, before enjoying lunch aboard the ship as we approach the terracotta-red rooftops of Split. You’ll have the day to yourself to explore at your leisure. If you didn’t have time on your first day, then we suggest a stroll through the incredible Diocletian’s Palace, which makes up the core of Split’s maze-like old town and is home to a collection of architecture styles, from Roman through to Renaissance and Gothic.
Day 8: Split Departure (B)
After a final breakfast aboard the ship, you’ll bid farewell to your fellow guests and either have a private transfer to Split Airport or to your onward destination.
