Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to Croatia

Saturday. Split - Makarska. Welcome to Croatia! Departure from Split harbour is at 1pm as we begin our cruise along the Dalmatian coast towards the Makarska Riviera. After lunch we arrive at Omiš, a picturesque town surrounded by steep rocky mountain cliffs, where the river Cetina flows into the Adriatic Sea. Try river rafting on the streams of the Cetina River and meet the ship again in Makarska. Climb up to the old fortress above the town or take a walk through the old town of Omiš and discover its glorious history through the many historical monuments. Makarska is a popular destination for visitors, with many restaurants and bars as well as a beautiful promenade along the famous beach.
Overnight: Makarska - onboard  |  Lunch

Day 2

Beautiful Brac

Makarska - Bol (Brac). This morning we continue our cruise towards our next destination - the island of Brac. We stop at Bol, a typical Dalmatian fishermen's town. Bol is known for its famous Zlatni Rat beach (Golden horn), a natural phenomenon that dominates the other beaches of Bol. A walk along the promenade (approx 2 hours) takes you to the highest peak of all of the Adriatic islands - Vidova Gora, which towers over the town. After a swimming break and lunch we continue our journey towards Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, the sunniest Adriatic island. This afternoon is free to explore the town and the famous UNESCO-listed Stari Grad Field, the best preserved example of an ancient Greek agricultural landscape in Dalmatia.
Overnight: Stari Grad - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Hvar & swimming by the Paklina Islands

Bol - Hvar. Today we sail around the island of Hvar to the town of the same name. Hvar island is the longest and sunniest of all the Adriatic islands and a favourite destination for jet setters from around the world. En route to the town, we stop for a swim at the Pakleni islands. Take some time to relax and enjoy refreshment in clear, crystal blue sea before we arrive into Hvar this afternoon. Hvar town offers many cultural and historical sites including the Renaissance Cathedral, the oldest community theatre in Europe and the Franciscan monastery, as well as the Spanjola fortress, which towers high above the town. There are also many restaurants and bars that open late into the night.
Overnight: Hvar - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4

Picturesque Vis

Hvar - Vis. The ship sets sail early this morning as we cruise towards the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy. As such it was closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm - ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. We spend the night moored by the town of Vis, on the northern side of the island. The settlement was developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Baths, City museum or simply take a walk and enjoy the view of beautiful Roman styled villas along the coast. Tonight we'll enjoy a scrumptious Captain's Dinner.
Overnight: Vis - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

Korcula

Vis - Korcula. Before breakfast we depart towards Korcula, the birthplace of famous explorer and adventurer Marco Polo. Surrounded by medieval walls, Korcula resembles a miniature Dubrovnik when approaching from the sea. It has more legends, tales and monuments than you will find anywhere else. Today, Korcula is the only place in the world where the Spanish medieval knight's game – Moreska is still performed. Upon arrival enjoy a walk through the streets of the old town built in the shape of a fish bone. Enjoy the numerous konobas /taverns, restaurants, cocktail bars and night-club located within and around the city walls.
Overnight: Korcula - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 6

Mljet National Park

Korcula - Mljet & Slano/Sipan. We continue cruising towards one of the greenest Adriatic islands - Mljet. This afternoon we take time to enjoy the beauties of the National Park, two salt lakes connected by a narrow channel to the sea and a boat ride to the St Mary isle in the Great Lake, where the old church and monastery are situated. You can cycle around and swim in the lakes. We continue our cruise towards Šipan, part of Elaphite islands, or towards Slano on the coast, both small fishermen's villages where we will overnight in the port.
Overnight: Slano/Sipan- onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 7

The Pearl of the Adriatic

Slano/Sipan - Dubrovnik. In the early morning hours we depart towards our final destination, Dubrovnik. Arriving after lunch, we enjoy a guided tour of this “paradise on Earth”, as the famous writer George Bernard Shaw described. Later there's an optional cable car ride up to Srd mountain for spectacular views of the old town. During free time a stroll along the 1940 metre long city walls is highly recommended and offers magnificent views of the old town of Dubrovnik and the surrounding islands.
Overnight: Dubrovnik - onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 8

Dubrovnik

Saturday. After breakfast you will say goodbye to the crew and our tour comes to an end - Dovidjenja!

The tour was AMAZING - the scenery, the boat, the food, the crew, and the other guests made our first ever cruising holiday just so amazing.

The tour captured many of islands around Croatia and really gave us a good overall feel for the country, we were pleased with how much information that Roco gave us each day, very informative and helped that he was local so could point us in directions for specific restaurants if needed.

The crew onboard the recently refurbished "lupus mare" were great, and really tried to go the extra mile for all of us. The food 3 course lunch was stunning, as well as the captains dinner. The cabins were spacious, and glad that we booked the rooms on the higher deck as gave us a beautiful view each morning.

Fabulous and well organised trip - thank you

The trip was amazing and our guide was really good and very friendly. My only feedback for the On The Go would be to have a better description of where to meet the ships and the correct check in time. The documents say that it departs at 1pm so there were multiple people who showed up a few minutes before 1 which caused the ship to leave later. They wanted people to check in at 11am which was not seen on the documents anywhere. It was a little stressful not knowing who would be checking us in and which boat we are on as there were many many boats there when we arrived.

The cruise was great. There was just the right number of guests so as to get to know them all. The cabin was spacious. The food was well done. We enjoyed swimming in the sea every day. We also enjoyed the additional activities.

Hi the Katarina Lines cruise was manned by Captain Ivo and his crew. They were very friendly and their service on board was just fantastic, our cabins were maintained every day . Marion the chef was the best cook every day we had a full breakfast and a 3 course lunch before we docked for the night so that we could explore the next island. I really loved that we had so much time to discover each island at our own pace, so much history and all the islands were beautiful. It was my first time on a cruise and loved that with 26 people on board we got to know everyone. We all had such fun meeting up on the islands and having dinner together and learning about each other. I will encourage my friends to go on this cruise and would go myself again. Thank you
