Day 2

Slano and Ston

Dubrovnik – Slano. After breakfast, an optional guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town can be enjoyed before we set sail. Surrounded by immense city walls, the world-famous Gothic and baroque facades line up as you walk the same streets featured in the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. Dubrovnik nobility and captains fancied the small town of Slano for their summer estates and as you explore this quaint seaside settlement later today, you’ll understand why. Alternative optional tour to the town of Ston, known for its gourmet cuisine including potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels.
Overnight: Slano - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Mljet and Korcula

Slano – Mljet – Korcula. Today we set sail to the stunning island of Mljet. The national park is home to two salty lakes connected to the sea via a narrow canal; perfect for kayaking to the small islet in the centre of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, you can bike or hike in the surroundings. After a dip en-route, we’ll cruise onwards to Korcula, the alleged home of Marco Polo. Its intricate streets and remarkable facades are bound to charm whether you explore on your own or in an optional walking tour.
Overnight: Korcula - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4

Brac

Korcula – Brac. Onwards today as we sail to the neighboring island of Brač, known as the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’ where on our optional tour to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća there is a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. On this picturesque Island you can explore the famous sandy shores of Zlatni Rat Beach and enjoy a stroll along the promenade or take a dip in the sea before joining an optional excursion to Bol, with a wine tasting session, before returning to the ship this evening to enjoy a captain's dinner and entertainment.
Overnight: Brac - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5

Hvar and Vis

Brac – Hvar – Vis. This morning we set sail to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1200 Croatian islands! With myriad UNESCO-listed heritage sites, it’s worth joining the optional guided tour. In the afternoon, we hop over to the island of Vis, the most distant from the coast of all inhabited islands in Croatia. Closed off to the public for the larger part of the 20th century for its role as an important Yugoslav military base, Vis and its nature remain incredibly preserved even today.
Overnight: Vis - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6

Sibenik

Vis – Sibenik. Spanning over two millennia, the array of heritage in this small settlement of Vis is incredible, ranging from a Greek cemetery and Roman baths to an English fort and Yugoslav militia tributes. Join an optional guided tour to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis before setting sail towards the mainland. Arriving to Šibenik, an optional walking tour will introduce you to Šibenik’s great claim to Renaissance – both the one centuries ago, when the town’s Cathedral of St. James was constructed, and the present day, with the town known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Experience its stone alleys and great cuisine in an evening on your own.
Overnight: Sibenik - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7

Krka and Split

Sibenik – Krka – Skradin – Split. Today we explore several sites on the Croatian mainland such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park, where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes. The park is definitely worth a visit before heading back to visit the seaside gem of Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland and a showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage. Our final stop is Split, renowned for its variety of archaeological gems. Explore on your own or join our optional walking tour to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city centre.
Overnight: Split - Onboard  |  Breakfast, Dinner
