Croatian Coastal Cruises (Category B Ships)

Southern Dalmatian Island Hopping - Dubrovnik to Dubrovnik (8 Days)

The Croatian Coastal Fleet offers memorable cruises around the stunning Dalmatian coast. The fleet comprises 3 different categories of ship; the very basic Category B ships, the newly renovated Category A vessels, the Category A+ boats which offer a higher degree of comfort and service and lastly the Deluxe ships which offer luxurious cabins and public spaces combined with a high level of service. Category B ships are suited to young people, groups of friends or special interest groups looking for an affordable cruise on the brilliant Croatian shoreline. Bathrooms and toilets are located on deck and are shared by all passengers and accommodation is in cabins furnished with bunk beds. In common with all boats in the fleet, these ships have a large sun deck where you can relax, socialise and take in the wonderful Dalmatian scenery, as well as a lounge and dining area.





Embark at Dubrovnik Gruz Harbour at 13.00hrs.

Day 1: Dubrovnik

Arrive in Gruz harbour, Dubrovnik, and check in from 1 pm this afternoon. Settle into your cabin and meet the crew and other guests. Dubrovnik is a charming old city whose Renaissance and Gothic architecture represents the legacy from the days of the Old Dubrovnik Republic. Enjoy the afternoon exploring the city on your own. The ship remains moored in Dubrovnik for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Dubrovnik - Korcula

Leave Dubrovnik behind this morning as you enjoy breakfast whilst cruising towards Korcula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. After lunch on board, with the shoreline of Lumbarda as your backdrop, you will arrive at the port in Korcula and spend the afternoon at leisure, sightseeing. You will see the dramatic stone walls and monuments and learn about the mysterious legends surrounding the island. The ship remains moored in the port overnight.

Day 3: Korcula - Hvar

Depart for the quaint island of Scedro this morning, where you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters. After lunch on board your cruise continues towards Hvar, the longest island in the Adriatic. You will see the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower still intact and the oldest community theatre in Europe, founded in 1612. The city is home to a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes, with a vibrant night life and you will be able to spend your evening exploring the streets and sampling the local cuisine.

Day 4: Hvar - Trstenik

Leave Hvar this morning and head towards the town of Trstenik on the peninsula of Peljesac. Here you can take a dip in the refreshing water and spend the afternoon relaxing on the sun deck. When you disembark the ship in the harbour you will have the opportunity to explore this delightful town, with a population of just 106. The main industries here include farming, viniculture, fishing and tourism and the area is known for its Dingac wine. The pretty coastline is covered with pine, providing a breathtaking backdrop as you swim in the sea. Later, you will visit the famous Grgic vineyards, where you will receive a tour before tasting some of the wine.

Day 5: Trstenik - Mljet

Continue your Croatian adventure after breakfast with a cruise towards the island of Mljet, which boasts a National Park. You will have the afternoon to yourself to take in the stunning scenery, including the vast salt lakes within the National Park. You may wish to rent a boat to explore the National Park from a different vantage point or, alternatively, hire a bicycle and head to the old abbey and church. Spend the night moored in the port of Polaca or Pomena.

Day 6: Mljet - Sipan

Early this morning you will set sail towards the Elafiti islands, a group of islands in the Adriatic Sea, to the west of Dubrovnik. The largest of these islands is Sipan, which is the most distant from Dubrovnik. The islands of Lopud and Kolocep are also well known and their beautiful scenery and fine sandy beaches attract many visitors. You will have lunch and an opportunity for swimming off one of the smaller islands this afternoon. The ship remains moored at Sipan overnight, where you will be able to explore independently tonight.
