    Day by Day Itinerary

    Day 1 Split

    Split, Croatia

    The excitement begins the moment you arrive at Split International Airport. You’ll be welcomed by our driver for a private transfer to your ship, with the luxurious Memories vessel waiting in Split’s harbor. Enjoy a refreshing drink at check-in and take time to settle into your cabin before exploring the facilities. If you arrive early, the Riva promenade is only steps away, ideal for a stroll while soaking up the atmosphere. There are many cafes for unwinding with a glass of wine while enjoying some people-watching, this is one of the best spots in Split to do it. Return to the ship in time for the three-course Welcome Dinner along with introductions to the captain and crew, plus time to get to know your fellow passengers.

    Day 2 Sibenik

    Sibenik

    We’ll depart the port this morning, sailing toward ancient Sibenik, a fortified coastal town on the mainland with a history that dates back over a thousand years. Arriving in the early afternoon, after a tasty lunch on the ship, join a local guide for an excursion through the Dalmatian hinterland. This is your first opportunity to try one of the country’s signature foods: prosciutto. We’ll visit a family who has been producing their own homemade prosciutto to enjoy samples alongside homemade olive oils and cheeses. Next on the agenda is a tour and tasting at an award-winning winery, known for making some of the region’s most sought-after wines. After returning to Sibenik, the evening is yours, with many impressive eateries here for sampling fine cuisine.

But first, enjoy an extended swim stop in a secluded bay at the “island of love.” Galesnjak is a heart-shaped island with crystal-clear water ideal for taking advantage of the many water toys on board. Lunch will be served on the vessel before we arrive at Zadar. Once there, you’ll meet a local guide for a tour that includes the historic center, complete with medieval walls and incredible landmarks like the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia, the Church of St. Donat, and the Roman Forum. You’ll get to marvel at the pair of world-famous art installations along the waterfront too: the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation.

Once there, join a guided tour of this UNESCO-protected site with around 30,000 acres of magnificent lakes, waterfalls, and lush greenery. It’s an image that’s often gone viral, attracting many to come to experience the striking natural beauty in real life. As you stroll the winding paths you’ll be dazzled by the lakes with brilliant shades of blues and greens while countless waterfalls are laced in between. You’ll have time to explore both the Lower Lakes and Upper Lakes if you choose, peering down to watch the trout swim about with the water crystal-clear. Once back onboard the ship, enjoy a three-course dinner.

An extended swim stop will be enjoyed in a secluded bay, the perfect way to refresh after all of the walking you did yesterday at Plitvice. Arriving at Telascica in the mid-afternoon, follow your cruise director for a walk through the unspoiled surroundings. Look forward to soaking up views of the dramatic, towering cliffs that soar over 650 feet above sea level and an inland saltwater lake known for its healing properties. After exploring, return to the ship to prepare for the Captain’s Dinner this evening that will be hosted on board.

Enjoy leisure time for exploring after docking on one of the islands, bringing the opportunity for some fantastic photos. Back on board lunch will be served as we continue to the picturesque town of Primosten. A jewel on the northern Dalmatian coast, you’ll have the afternoon and evening to take in the beauty with the maze of streets in the Old Town that are fun to wander, especially with a camera in hand.

After disembarking, meet our local guide for a tour of the Old Town. Nearly half of the historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is made up of Diocletian’s Palace. It was built as the retirement residence for Roman Emperor Diocletian and completed in the early 4th century.
