Embark

Embark the ship in Dubrovnik.

Day 1: Dubrovnik

You will be met at Dubrovnik airport and transferred to Gruž harbour where you will board. After settling into your cabin, enjoy a guided tour of the city. You will be transferred to the city gates where your tour commences. The special charm of this ancient town are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic. A larger part of the monuments belonging to the modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of the Gothic style. Enjoy a cable car ride from the Old Town to Srđ mountain to take in the beautiful scenic views of the Walls and Elaphiti Islands. Once your tour ends return to the ship for a Welcome cocktail.

Day 2: Dubrovnik - Slano

Depart Dubrovnik in the morning and cruise to the small village of Slano on the mainland. Enjoy the magical scenery during breakfast as the ship cruises around Dubrovnik city walls before heading to one of the Elaphiti islands for a swim stop. In the afternoon arrive at the quiet fishing village of Slano, your starting point for Ston, once a fortified small village famous for its oysters. After exploring the town’s medieval ramparts a short coastal walk leads to an oyster farm to learn more about oysters and tasting this delicious treat. Time at leisure and return transfer to ship, Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board.

Day 3: Slano - Mljet

This morning the ship sails to the small island of Mljet. Join the Cruise Manager for a walk to the salt lakes within the Mljet National Park and enjoy a boat ride to St Mary Isle, home to an ancient Benedictine monastery. Alternatively you can choose to rent kayaks, bikes, scooters or jeeps to explore the park on your own. Dinner onboard and overnight in port Polača or Pomena.

Day 4: Mljet - Korcula

Early morning departure for the island of Korcula, said to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. En route the Captain will drop anchor in a secluded bay where you will enjoy lunch. Arrive into Korcula in the early afternoon and take a guided walk of the town, with its fortified walls and herringbone pattern streets. There is an optional excursion to a small village near Korčula for typical Dalmatian dinner where you can learn about the history and traditional way of living. Korcula has an abundance of restaurants where you can dine tonight and there are plenty of bars for those in search of nightlife.

Day 5: Korcula - Vis

Today's destination is Vis Island, once a strategic naval Yugoslav base and closed to the public. Due to this isolation, Vis has a special charm – “the Mediterranean as it once was” making it really interesting to visit. Vis town, situated on the northern side of the island, has developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. Here you can try some exquisite wine sorts in one of the Vis traditional wineries. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Village Rusticae situated along the waterfront.

Day 6: Vis - Bisevo - Hvar

Early morning cruise to the small island of Biševo where you will visit the Blue cave, a natural phenomenon (depending on weather conditions). Later continue towards the jet-set island Hvar with a swim stop and lunch on board at the Pakleni Islands. Arrive in sunny Hvar in the afternoon, the longest island in Adriatic known for its lavender fields and breathtaking beauty. Hike up to the town fort overlooking the harbour to get some lovely scenic views of your ship and the Pakleni islands. In the evening Hvar offers an abundance of entertainment - numerous restaurants, bars and cafes are open long into the night. Overnight in the port.

Day 7: Hvar - Split

Your last stop will be on the island of Brac where you will visit the picturesque town of Bol. Take a stroll along the promenade and swim at one of the region's most famous beaches, Zlatni Rat, or the 'Golden Cape'. Continue to Split where you can enjoy a guided tour of the city, a historical town under UNESCO protection.
