  • Itinerary/Excursions

    Day 01 - Arrival.  Split - Makarska (L)

    Departure is at 13.00 hrs from Split harbour and we sail southwards towards Makarska. Lunch is served and we will stop for a swim break in one of the secluded bays. Enjoy an evening in Makarska and strolling along the wide promenade and the many bars and restaurants.

    Day 02 - Makarska - Mijet (B.L)

    Early morning departure towards the island of Mljet. Swim stop on the PelješacPenninsula. Part of Mljet Island is a national park. In the afternoon, plan to visit its seawater lakes, the peaceful, tiny St Mary’s Island in the middle of the large lake, the church and the monastery. Walk or hire a bike to explore these stunning lakes. Overnight in the port of Polača or Pomena.

    Day 03 - Mijet - Dubrovnik (B.L)

    After breakfast, depart towards Dubrovnik, the most famous town in Croatia and, for many, the highlight of this cruise. The Irish writer George Bernard Shaw called Dubrovnik “heaven on earth”. Unbelievable views of the surroundings alongtheway, enjoy and admire the beautiful stretch of the coast. Upon arrival, explore on your own or join a guided city tour, followed by an optional cable car ride up to the Srđ mountain for spectacular views of the old town. Don’t miss Stradun – both a street and a square in the Old Town and walk at least part of the 1.940 m long city walls which have protected Dubrovnik during earthquakes and attacks. Overnight in the port of this magical town. 

    Day 04 - Dubrovnik - Šipan or Trstenik (B.L.D)

    Late morning departure towards the island of Šipan or the small town of Trstenik on the Pelješac Peninsula. Gorgeous spots for an afternoon swim and time at leisure with the possibility to visit a local winery. In the evening enjoy the special Captain’s dinner on board. Overnight in the port.

    Day 05 - Šipan / Trstenik - Korčula (B.L)

    After breakfast, depart towards the island of Korčula, one of the famous islands in the Dubrovnik region. It’s the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Lunch on board in a bay near the Korčula town. The encircling town walls and bastions date back to the 13th Century and there are some lovely churches and museums. Join the sightseeing of the Korčula town and optional wine and local appetizer tasting at a local winery before dining in one of the numerous seafront restaurants or konobas on your own. Overnight in the port of Korčula.

    Day 06 - Korčula - Hvar (B.L)

    Early departure towards the Paklinsk iIslands near Hvar (the longest island in the Adriatic) for lunch and a swimming stop. Later, there’s an afternoon sightseeing tour of Hvar, which resembles a film set. The Renaissance cathedral has its original tower and the oldest community theatre in Europe, founded in 1612. Hvar is known as a jet-set island, offering abundant entertainment, excellent restaurants, bars and cafés serving drinks long into the night. Don't forget to buy some island lavender from local stalls. Overnight in Hvar.

    Day 07 - Hvar - Brac - Split (B.L)

    The next stop is the island of Brač. The most famous (and most photographed) beach in Dalmatia is Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) near Bol –famous for its everchanging shape -a shingle bar that moves according to the wind. Great place for a swim stop. Bol is a typical fishermen’s village that kept the atmosphere despite becominga popular touristic spot. After lunch, on the way to Split, it is possible to join the optional river rafting excursion on the Cetina river. The approach to the Split Riviera is wonderful and offers the best views from onboard. Upon arrival, join the optional guided tour of Split, a monumental city which together with the famous Roman Diocletian’s Palace is under UNESCO protection. Split is full of bistros and restaurant serving local specialities.
