Mljet and Korcula (B, L, D)
An early departure will bring us to lush Mljet Island, much of which is protected by a national park that’s famous for its two salt lakes. Join a local guide to the heart of the park to see them before we continue our cruise to Korcula, renowned as the alleged birthplace of international explorer Marco Polo.

If weather conditions permit, we can enter to witness the remarkable natural phenomenon that occurs when the interior of the sea grotto becomes illuminated in a brilliant blue glow. On arrival in Vis, we have arranged a jeep safari to discover this pristine island featuring rolling vineyards, spectacular views, ex-Yugoslav military hideouts and one of the oldest cricket clubs in the world.

Sibenik and Krka National Park (B, L, D)
As Vis fades away, we sail onto Sibenik, a captivating fortified city founded over 1,000 years ago on the coastal mainland. The ancient city is the former seat of King Petar Krešimir, giving it the nickname “Krešimir’s town.” It hosts the Sibenik Cathedral, one of the most important architectural monuments of the Renaissance period in all of Croatia. You’ll have time to view it and more this evening as you explore the backstreets and narrow alleys, but first we’ll visit nearby Krka National Park and its magnificent waterfalls. You can even take a dip into the serene pool that sits beneath Skradinski Buk falls, so don’t forget your swimsuit. Back on board, feed your appetite at the Captain’s dinner which includes live entertainment.
Split (B, L)
Your 7-night island-hopping cruise through Croatia ends in spectacular way, a grand finale that includes a guided tour of Split’s Old Town, nearly half of which is covered by the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace, built in the 4th century by Roman Emperor Diocletian as a summer residence.
