Enjoy a few nights in Split to relax after your cruise or join our private or small group tours to the beautiful KRKA National Park or historic UNESCO-listed towns of Sibenik and Trogir.

Legend: B – breakfast, L – lunch, D – dinner
DAY 1 • SATURDAY SPLIT (D)
You’ll find your brand-new luxury ship already docked in the chic Split harbour when you arrive. You can board at any time throughout the day but rooms are only available from 1:00pm. If you arrive before that, then we suggest that you leave your luggage on the ship and take a walk through the city or indulge in a visit to the beach for a pre-cruise sunbathe, before joining us back on-board for a welcome meeting at 7:00pm, where you’ll meet our cruise director, the Captain and crew, before the welcome dinner at 7:30pm. Let us know if you’re arriving late and we’ll let the crew know so that they can arrange a late dinner. Overnight in Split.
DAY 2 • SUNDAY SPLIT – TROGIR (B,L)
Our English-speaking guide will meet you in the morning for a walking tour of Split’s fabulous old town. The tour will focus on the cavernous Diocletian’s Palace – former palace of the Roman emperor Diocletian, turned Split’s 1700-year old architectural masterpiece of an old town. This UNESCO-listed town centre is a veritable maze of beguiling buildings, fantastic restaurants and hidden gems, and is still home to at least a thousand residents.
We’ll return to the ship at 12:00pm and begin our cruise to our next port: Trogir. We’ll have lunch on board the ship before stopping for a swim stop, and arrive in Trogir in the afternoon, where our English-speaking guide will be waiting to take you on a tour of Trogir’s UNESCO-listed old town. The tour will take in a vast collection of sights, most notably the ornate Cathedral of St. Lawrence, the North Gate and the Trogir Ciovo. We’ll leave your evening open to explore the city’s restaurants and bars. Overnight in Trogir Historical Town.
DAY 3 • MONDAY TROGIR – BOL – HVAR (B,L)
Today we sail towards Bol on the island of Brač and stop for a swim at Croatia’s most famous beach: the unique Zlatni Rat, or Golden Horn, which curves out into the Adriatic in the shape of horn. You’ll then have the rest of the morning to do as you please, whether that means sunbathing, strolling through the old town of Bol or simply spending a lazy morning aboard the ship, is up to you. After lunch, we’ll sail onwards to the cosmopolitan island of Hvar. Hvar is one of Croatia’s most popular islands, with a delightful marina, fantastic nightlife and exciting town to explore. On arrival you’ll meet with our English-speaking guide who will take you for a tour of Hvar Town, taking in the historic architecture and the town’s major attractions, such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral and square, the Franciscan Monastery and the striking Venetian Loggia and Clock tower. In the evening we suggest taking a walk around the Hvar Marina to watch as the sunset creates a beguiling summer palette of oranges, reds and pinks in the sky over the Pakleni Islands. Overnight in Hvar Historical Town.
DAY 4 • TUESDAY HVAR-BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – VIS (B,L)
We’ll set sail early to visit the stunning Blue Cave on BIsevo Island. The cave is world-famous due to an intriguing natural lighting phenomenon that occurs when the sun enters the cave at an exact angle, at a certain point in the day. When rays from the sun hit the water, through a natural opening in the cave, the light refracts in such a way as to cast the entire cave in a striking blue luminescence. The effect is magical, dressing both the water and the walls of the cave in an astounding, alienesque coating of blue light.
As the Blue Cave is only accessible by boat, high waves can sometimes prevent access. In such circumstances, we’ll instead embark on a half-day tour of the picturesque village of Komiža and the WWII RAF Airport on Vis, after which we’ll continue onwards to Vis Town, where we’ll spend the night. Overnight in Vis Town.
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY VIS – KORČULA (B,L)
In the morning, we’ll have lunch aboard the ship and sail through the azure waters of the Adriatic towards the stunning island of Korčula. En route, we’ll stop for a swim stop, before anchoring close to Korčula Town. You’ll meet our English-speaking guide directly off the ship for an afternoon tour of the old town, which juts out into the sea as a round islet full of terracotta-red roofed houses and antique church spires, and then you’ll have the evening free to explore at your own pace. If you’d like to see more of the old town, then we suggest navigating from the main street to explore its ornate collection of Venetian-style palaces, or alternatively head out of the town and find a quiet beach to call your own for the afternoon. In the evening, head back to the cobbled streets of the old town for dinner in a warmly lit piazza. Overnight in Korčula Historical Town.
DAY 6 • TUESDAY KORČULA – NATIONAL PARK MLJET – ŠIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO (B,L, CD)
In the morning we’ll cruise towards the island of Mljet and the lush Mljet National Park, which is home to two lakes – one large and one small. Both lakes are idyllic to the extreme, but in the middle of the large lake is a small islet where you’ll find a pretty 12th century monastery, which now serves as a café. We’ll spend the entire morning here, giving you more than enough time to explore the park and take a swim in the refreshing waters of the lakes, before returning to the ship for lunch.
Afterwards, we’ll cruise to the blissful Šipan Island where we’ll lay anchor for the evening in view of the quaint fishing village of Šipanska Luka. If this isn’t possible (because of bad weather or conflicting schedules) then we’ll dock off the coast of Slano on the mainland instead with beautiful views of the amber lights of the town. Overnight in Šipanska Luka or in Slano on the mainland.
DAY 7 • FRIDAY – CRUISE TO DUBROVNIK CITY WALLS (B,L)
Today will be our final day of cruising, and we’ll spend it sailing past the jewel-like Elaphiti islands and into the Dalmatian city of Dubrovnik. We’ll reach Dubrovnik by lunchtime, but will sail around the medieval city walls and staggering fortifications before eating lunch with picture-perfect views of the old town from the unique angle of the water.
We’ll arrange a city tour with our local guide for after lunch who’ll show you around the old town, taking in the impressive city walls, the Rector’s Palace, the Sponza Palace and the Pile Gate – many of which will be familiar to fans of the Game of Thrones TV series. We’ll leave you with the remainder of the afternoon to explore the city at your own pace, and we suggest you spend at least a portion of it ascending to the top of Srđ Mountain, via the cable car, for staggering 360-degree vistas out over the rooftops of Dubrovnik and beyond. Overnight in Dubrovnik.
DAY 8 • SATURDAY DUBROVNIK (B)
Today you’ll bid farewell to the crew and captain for the final time as you are transferred to Dubrovnik Airport on your onward accommodation
