Welcome to Dubrovnik, the “Pearl of the Adriatic.” Take your private transfer from the airport to your hotel where you can enjoy the afternoon at your leisure. You might want to take a trip back in time, strolling the marble, pedestrian-only streets of the Old City, shopping for souvenirs while taking in sights like the grand Pile gate and Bokar fortress. Or, take a ride on the cable car to the top of Mount Srd for a bird’s-eye view of the red tiled rooftops, the endless blue of the Adriatic Sea and the Elaphiti Islands.
Saturday: Dubrovnik (D)
Your exciting cruise from Dubrovnik to Split begins with transfer from Dubrovnik Airport or hotel to Gruž Harbour, where your new deluxe ship awaits. Boarding is possible throughout the day, with cabins ready from 1 p.m. If you arrive early, you can stow your luggage and head out to explore the city. A meet-and-greet and welcome dinner will be hosted at 7 p.m. providing an opportunity to meet the captain, crew and your fellow passengers.
Sunday: Dubrovnik – Slano/Ston (B, L, T)
After breakfast, enjoy a guided walking tour along the cobbled streets of the historic UNESCO-listed Old Town of Dubrovnik. You’ll be mesmerized by the majestic medieval architecture, and afterward, soak up the view from above as you explore the impressive city walls. Return to the ship and enjoy lunch as we set sail for our next destination. Our next stop is the charming village of Slano, a peaceful traditional fishermen’s village and the entrance point to Ston, another small fortified village that is famous for its oysters. After exploring the town’s medieval ramparts and famous Ston Walls, we will take you to an oyster farm, where you will have the opportunity to sample delicious fresh oysters and mussels.
Monday: Slano – Mljet – Korcula (B, L)
We’ll venture further north to Mljet Island and its stunning national park this morning. Walk the shores of the two salt lakes at its center and then visit tiny St. Mary Isle which sits in Great Lake and houses a 12th-century Benedictine monastery and historic church. After lunch, we journey to Korcula Island, perhaps best known as the birthplace of one of the world’s most famous explorers, Marco Polo. Your inspirational guide will take you on a tour through fortified Korcula Town. You’ll have the evening to explore on your own, sampling tasty cuisine in the local eateries.
Tuesday: Korcula – Vis (B, L)
An early morning departure for the tranquil island of Vis. Enjoy a refreshing dip in the Adriatic before we arrive to this unspoiled island in the afternoon. For four decades it was closed off to visitors and abandoned by many locals while used as a Yugoslav military based. It’s managed to remain largely undeveloped, offering a step back in time with traditional architecture and pristine beaches. Look forward to exploring Vis Town at your leisure, enjoying the atmospheric vibe as you walk the lovely stone streets lined with fabulous taverns.
Wednesday: Vis – Bisevo (Blue Cave) – Hvar (B, L)
Weather-permitting, our first stop today is the Blue Cave on Bisevo Island, one of Croatia’s most famous attractions. When conditions are right, we can experience the incredible natural phenomenon that occurs when sunlight streams through, illuminating the cave with an ethereal blue glow. Our next stop is the beautiful sunshine island of Hvar. On arrival, enjoy a wine tasting tour at a very sought after family winery in Jelsa, a small and charming town on the island.

Thursday: Hvar – Bol – Trogir (B, L, D)
We sail towards Trogir, with a stop in Bol, famous as the home of one of Europe’s most photographed beaches, Zlatni Rat. Enjoy a swim off its shores or coffee in town before returning to the ship for lunch. We’ll continue cruising to the UNESCO-listed Trogir, an open-air museum filled with impressive medieval towers, churches, palaces and monasteries. Its Cathedral of St. Lawrence is considered one of the country’s finest examples of sacral architecture. Learn more about it on a guided walking tour, followed by time on your own. The Captain’s dinner with live music is hosted on the ship this evening.
Friday: Trogir – Split (B, L)
The last stop on this deluxe cruise is Croatia’s second largest city, ancient Split. You’ll have the opportunity for another swim stop before arriving in this Roman built city. Join our guide for a tour of its historical center, nearly half of which is made up of the 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace, a maze-like complex with a wealth of magnificent Roman architecture. Split was built in the 4th-century as the retirement home for Roman Emperor Diocletian. After the tour, explore on your own and enjoy dinner in a myriad of restaurants and bars dotted throughout the palace.
Saturday: Plitvice Lakes National Park (B)
Today you’ll be met by private transfer for the scenic drive to Plitvice Lakes National Park, nestled among three mountains in the Dinaric Alps: Plješevica, Mala Kapela and Medveđak. Enjoy a guided afternoon tour of the park’s 16 interconnected lakes that vary in shades from emerald to turquoise and sapphire blue, with countless cascading waterfalls in nearly every direction.
