    Day by Day Itinerary

    Day 1 Dubrovnik Arrival


    Your enchanting cruise starts the moment you touch down at Dubrovnik Airport, or from your Dubrovnik hotel, with a warm welcome from your driver who will provide a private transfer to your deluxe ship waiting in Gruz Harbour. Your cabin will be ready from 1 pm. on. After stowing your bags, you’ll meet up with our local guide for a tour through Dubrovnik’s walled historic center. You’ll stroll the limestone-paved streets, marveling at the medieval landmarks while getting insight into their history and enjoying the incredible views of the Adriatic. After returning to the ship, get ready for this evening’s meet-and-greet cocktail reception which includes an introduction to your captain, the crew, and fellow passengers, a brief overview of the week ahead, and a three-course dinner.

    • Excursions Included Guided tour of Dubrovnik
    • Meals Included Welcome Dinner

    Day 2 Slano/Ston

    Oyster & Wine Tour, Croatia

    We’ll start sailing this morning, departing Gruz Habour and heading toward Slano, a traditional fishing village on the mainland and the gateway to Ston, another fortified village. You’ll have time to marvel at the medieval ramparts before experiencing what Ston is most famous for, the cultivation of shellfish, with oysters the crown jewel. A short walk to an oyster farm provides the opportunity to sample the delicacies straight from the sea, known to be some of the world’s most flavorful thanks in part to the high concentration of minerals in the bay. Enjoy them with some Croatian wine while learning more about how they’re harvested. After returning to Slano, prepare to join us for the Captain’s Dinner with live music and entertainment.

    • Excursions Included Oyster farm visit and tasting experience in Ston
    • Meals Included Breakfast, Lunch and Captain's Dinner

    Day 3 Mljet National Park & Korcula

    Mljet National Park, Croatia

    The first island on our itinerary is lush Mljet, with a large portion of it a national park. We’ll anchor a short walk from the entrance so that you can explore its famous saltwater lakes in stunning shades of blue and green. The larger lake, known as Great Lake, has a tiny islet at its heart with a Benedictine monastery. Once back on board, we’ll continue to Korcula, famous as the birthplace of intrepid explorer Marco Polo. You’ll meet our local guide at the gate leading into the walled Old Town that looks like it came straight from a storybook. Many highlights will be revealed like St. Mark’s Cathedral where you’ll see influences from its Venetian past before enjoying time on your own for dinner.

    • Excursions Included Entrance to the Mljet National Park / Guided walking tour of Korcula
    • Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 4 Vis

    Vis town

    Cruising on to unspoiled Vis, the furthest inhabited island from the Croatian mainland, you’ll experience its irresistible charms. You might think you’ve gone back in time thanks to the lack of tourism development, providing a tranquil setting for exploring the stone streets of Vis Town and strolling the waterfront. Upon arrival, you’ll get to enjoy it at your leisure, perhaps visiting the archaeology museum to learn more about its long history, viewing the well-preserved traditional architecture, and maybe spending time on one of the picturesque beaches. With some of the most exclusive Croatian wines produced here, we recommend sampling a glass or two of Vugava or Plavac with your dinner this evening before you return to the ship for a peaceful night’s rest.

    • Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 5 Blue Cave & Hvar

    Blue Cave, Bisevo, Croatia

    An exciting day awaits with our overnight destination one of the most popular islands in Croatia, Hvar. First, we’ll stop for a tour of the famous Blue Cave on Bisevo Island, just a short jaunt from Vis. If conditions allow, you’ll enter the cave’s interior in a small boat to witness the magical phenomenon that occurs when the sun beams through a crack in the roof, reflecting off the white limestone sea bottom to illuminate it in a surreal blue glow. From here, continue to Hvar for another highlight of the trip, a wine tasting at a favorite Hvar winery, run by a local family in the small town of Jelsa.

    • Excursions Included Entrance to the Blue Cave (entrance fee payable locally) / Wine tasting in Hvar
    • Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 6 Bol & Trogir

    Old Town of Trogir, Croatia

    We’ll begin to make our way toward Split, but there’s plenty to enjoy first. We’ll stop at Brac Island where you’ll have the opportunity to swim from Zlatni Rat Beach. Often named among the most beautiful, and the most photographed in all of Europe, it’s surrounded by a translucent turquoise sea on three sides. With the town of Bol nearby, if you prefer you can grab a cup of coffee and enjoy some people-watching instead. 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.

    • Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 7 Split


    We’ll reach our final destination today with another highlight of your island-hopping cruise: a tour of the 4th-century Roman emperor Diocletian’s Palace. This is where the city was birthed more than 1,700 years ago when Diocletian chose the area for his retirement residence. Much of the sprawling complex covers the historic center, with some of the world’s most well-preserved Roman buildings and monuments. You’ll take an intriguing walking tour, and afterward, the rest of the day is yours. You’ll find many restaurants and cafes along the seaside Riva promenade and in the palace for enjoying a celebratory dinner. You might pick up some souvenirs in one of the shops and then conclude the evening with a stroll along the waterfront.

    • Excursions Included Guided tour of Split
    • Meals Included Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 8 Split Departure

    Split, Croatia

    This morning marks the end of this amazing cruise. You’ll have time for one last breakfast on the ship along with farewells to the captain, crew, and fellow passengers, many of whom have become new friends. While goodbyes are never easy, we hope you’ve made memories of a lifetime and have plenty of photos to take with you. When it’s time to disembark, your driver will be waiting for you to provide a private transfer to Split’s airport or your local hotel in Split if you’ve decided to extend your time here.
