Day 1          SAT          Arrive in Dubrovnik

You will be transferred from Dubrovnik's airport or your Dubrovnik hotel to Gruz Harbor, where embarkation begins at noon. Get settled in your cabin before attending tonight a Welcome Reception (WR)


Day 2          SUN          Dubrovnik - Mljet

Start the day with a walking tour of Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of Adriatic" and a UNESCO World Heritage site. You'll visit the Rector's Palace and Franciscan Monastery's Pharmacy before returning to the boat for lunch.

As you dine, set sail for Mljet Island. Mljet National Park covers the western wooded area of the island. There are five types of forest and many species of birds, including eagles. The eastern end of the park has two deep lakes, Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake).

One of the many tales about the island of Mljet says it was the favorite holiday destination of the Greek hero Ulysses (B,L,D)

Day 3          MON           Mljet - Pucisca

After breakfast relax as you sail past Korcula Island. Korcula is a unique example of the harmony between nature, culture, tradition, history, and modern tourism. Lunch will be served on board. Continue sailing to Pucisca, a beautiful little town on island of Brac. Stop for a swim in one of the bays.

Your evening is free to discover the town and enjoy dinner on your own at one of the many restaurants (B,L)

 


Day 4          TUE          Pucisca - Omis - Split

As you sail along the coast, stop at the ancient town of Omis. Its fortresses are silent stone reminders of the power and the might of the infamous pirates who once made their homes and fortunes here. After a short walking tour, board a small boat and sail into 
Cetina River Canyon, a protected nature area. Continue to Radman Mills for a local specialty snack. Return to Omis and your boat, and set sail during lunch. 

Arriving in Split, the capital of Dalmatia, take a guided tour of the port, the seafront promenade, and Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace. The historical center of the city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Your evening in Split is free for independent activities (B,L)


Day 5          WED          Split - Brac - Hvar

Stop in Bol, a small town on Island Brac, for a swim at the Golden Horn. Enjoy the 1740-foot-long golden pebble beach said to be the best in Croatia. It is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Return to your boat for lunch, then head to Hvar.
Hvar is one of the most popular islands in the Adriatic and a meeting point for the international jetset.

The "Croatian Madeira" is also one of the longest islands stretching along the shores of Croatia. A sightseeing tour of Hvar town shows you the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare's theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery and many more historical sights. Evening is free to explore Hvar on your own (B,L)

Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor - during peak season, in July and August - port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case transfer by bus will be arranged to and from Hvar

 

Day 6          THU          Hvar - Korcula

Relax on the Sun Deck as you cruise to Korcula, arriving in the late afternoon. This is the supposed birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. A walking tour will take you through the narrow, cobbled streets and includes a visit to the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St Mark. The rest of the evening is free to go and find a quiet spot to relax or to visit a lively tavern the locals frequent (B,L)

 

Day 7          FRI          Korcula - Dubrovnik

As you sail back along the shores of Mljet Island, gaze at the steep coastal cliffs and stop in the bay for swim (weather permitting). Continue to the Peljesac Peninsula for a visit to the Grgich Winery, where you'll see the vineyards and enjoy wine tasting. Later, arrive in Dubrovnik, where your evening is at leisure (B,L)

Day 8          SAT           depart Dubrovnik

After breakfast your cruise ends. Disembark and transfer to airport or your Dubrovnik hotel
