This enchanting 7-night cruise travels the spectacular Dalmatian coast from the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik, to beautiful ancient Split. In between, you’ll enjoy some of the best coastal towns and island gems, several of which will be explored on inspirational guided tours, including Dubrovnik’s walled Old City, storybook Korcula, and Diocletian’s Palace in Split with its magnificent Roman architecture. Unique experiences will also be enjoyed, including a fresh tasting of oysters harvested from the sea and a wine tasting in one of Hvar’s top family-run wineries. Along the way, there will be time for swim stops in secluded bays with crystal-clear blue water and opportunities to sample the local culinary delights when in port. Your half-board meals served on the ship are sure to be a highlight, prepared fresh by the onboard chef, and overnights in a comfortable en-suite cabin help to ensure a peaceful night’s rest.

Day by Day Itinerary
DAY 1 Dubrovnik
Your driver will be there to welcome you upon arrival at Dubrovnik Airport, with a private transfer provided to your deluxe vessel in Gruz Harbour, with your cabin ready from 1 p.m. on. Stowe your bags and join our local guide for a tour of Dubrovnik’s Old City with its massive stone walls enclosing many medieval landmarks. As you walk the limestone-paved streets, enjoy interesting commentary on highlights like Rector’s Palace and the Franciscan Monastery, home to one of Europe’s oldest still active pharmacies, dating to the 14th century. This evening, you’ll enjoy a three-course Welcome Dinner and introductions to the captain and crew.
- Excursions Included Guided tour of Dubrovnik
- Meals Included Welcome Dinner
DAY 2 Slano
We’ll depart for the traditional village of Slano on the mainland this morning. Once there, we head for the fortified village of Ston. Famous for its shellfish, particularly oysters, you’ll get to sample them at an oyster farm right out of the sea alongside tasty Dalmatian wine. As you savour the delicious flavours, you’ll learn more about their history, how they’re harvested and why they’re considered some of the world’s best. Once we’re back in Slano we’ll return to the ship so you can get ready for this evening’s multicourse Captain’s Dinner with live music.
- Excursions Included Oyster farm visit and tasting experience in Ston
- Meals Included Breakfast, Lunch & Captain's Dinner
DAY 3 Mljet & Korcula
Mljet Island is your first island stop with Mljet National Park covering a significant portion. We’ll anchor nearby so that you can do some exploring on your own. A short walk will bring you to two saltwater lakes with small beaches for sunbathing. A tiny islet in Great Lake hosts a 12th-century Benedictine monastery. If you want to visit, it can be accessed via a short boat ride. Afterward, we’ll cruise to Korcula Island, best known as the birthplace of international explorer Marco Polo. Join our local guide for a tour of the storybook-like Old Town, surrounded by walls, gates, bastions, and towers.
- Excursions Included Guided tour of Korcula
- Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch
DAY 4 Vis
Continue from Korcula to Vis, an island gem as one of the most remote and furthest inhabited islands from the mainland. It’s beautifully unspoiled and feels as if it’s in another time with the lack of tourism development thanks to being off-limits to visitors for four decades while used as a naval base. After the independence of Croatia, the outside world rediscovered it, often referring to the island as the “Mediterranean as it once was.” Enjoy the tranquil beauty, including postcard-perfect beaches, and an exploration of Vis Town on your own, which hosts an outstanding archaeological museum, a fortress, and a Roman theatre.
- Excursions Included N/A
- Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch
DAY 5 Blue Cave & Hvar
Hvar is your ultimate destination, but first, you’ll embark on a tour of the famous Blue Cave. Located on Bisevo Island, this natural geomorphological wonder is just a short ride from Vis. Hop in a smaller boat to cruise through the narrow entrance and experience the surreal silvery, blue glow that occurs when the sun illuminated its interior. Please note that entry to the Blue Cave is subject to weather and sea conditions and therefore the entry fee of EUR20pp is payable on the day. Back on board the ship, we’ll continue to the island famous for its lavender, beautiful beaches, and buzzing nightlife. You’ll head to the small town of Jelsa for a wine tasting at a popular family-run winery.
- Excursions Included Entrance to the Blue Cave (entrance fee payable locally) and wine tasting in Hvar
- Meals Included Breakfast & Lunch
DAY 6 Bol & Trogir
As we start to make our return to Split, we’ll enjoy some great stops along the way. The first is one of Europe’s most beautiful and most photographed beaches, Zlatni Rat. It juts out nearly a third of a mile into dreamy clear turquoise waters, ideal for an unforgettable swim. The town of Bol is nearby if you’d rather fuel up with a cup of coffee as you watch the world go by. From here we’ll continue to medieval Trogir, with its historic centre, a UNESCO-listed site, often referred to as an open-air museum with incredible landmarks like the 13th-century Romanesque-Gothic St. Lawrence Cathedral. Learn more about it on our guided walking tour.
- Excursions Included Guided tour of Trogir
- Meals Included Breakfast & Lunch
DAY 7 Split
The last stop on this deluxe cruise is Croatia’s second-largest city, ancient Split. Enjoy another thrilling day that includes a tour of Split’s walled Old City, including the 4th-century Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace. The massive complex is renowned for housing some of the most impeccably preserved Roman monuments and buildings that you’ll get to marvel at and learn more about on a guided walking tour. You’ll have the remainder of the day to yourself, perhaps shopping for gifts or souvenirs in the many shops housed inside the centuries-old buildings before sitting down for a delicious dinner followed by an evening walk on the Riva promenade.
- Excursions Included Guided tour of Split
- Meals Included Breakfast & Lunch
DAY 8 Split
After breakfast on board this morning and time for goodbyes to your fellow passengers and new friends, the captain, and crew, you’ll be met by your private driver for transfer to your local hotel here in Split or to Split International Airport.
