Tour Itinerary

DAY 1
FLY TO DUBROVNIK
FLY TO DUBROVNIK

On arrival transfer to MS Adriatic Pearl (embarkation starts at 14:00 onwards). Over a welcome drink and a snack, meet your Cruise Director and the crew and get acquainted with the rules and safety measures. Your journey begins with a dinner on-board and overnight in Dubrovnik.

DAY 2
DUBROVNIK TO SLANO
DUBROVNIK TO SLANO

Enjoy breakfast on board before joining the guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town. Our local expert will show you around this fascinating world-known landmark, an ancient town protected by 13th century fortifications. Dubrovnik was for centuries a standalone Republic and the only power able to compete with the Venetians. Dubrovnik nobility and captains fancied the small town of Slano for their summer estates and you will understand why as soon as you arrive in the afternoon. Explore this quaint seaside settlement on your own or join our optional tour** to the town of Ston, known for many things gourmand: potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. (B,L) **Taste of Dalmatia tour

DAY 3
SLANO TO KORCULA
SLANO TO KORCULA

After breakfast, sail to the island of Mljet. The Island of Mljet on its western side houses Mljet National Park, known for its immense beauty and its two turquoise salt-water lakes surrounded by thick forest. Upon arrival you will have plenty of free time to explore the park individually; walk or rent a bicycle and cycle the numerous paths around the lakes or in the forests. You can also rent kayaks and cut the surface of the magnificent lakes to observe the scenery from a different perspective. If you feel like just relaxing you can hop onto the small boat that will take you to a tiny island on one of the lakes, where you can discover a monastery and a church of St. Mary’s built in the 12th century. There will be an option to join the guided tour of the island if you would prefer to see it with a guide. Afterwards, sail on to Korcula. You’ll know Korčula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which follow you around the old town, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world renowned traveller Marco Polo is bound to charm you. (B,L)

 

**Optional excursion: Mjlet

DAY 4
KORCULA TO VIS
KORCULA TO VIS

Enjoy a breakfast with a view and a morning sail to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1200 Croatian islands. This favoured island of the rich & famous is also the island with the most UNESCO-listed heritage in the entire world. In the afternoon, 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. Dinner onboard and overnight in Vis. (B,D)

DAY 5
VIS TO SIBENIK
VIS TO SIBENIK

You will wake up to views of Vis town waterfront, comprised of the newer, 19th-century harbour area, and the historic, medieval corner. Join a guided tour to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis before setting sail towards the mainland. Arriving to Šibenik, grab a spot on the deck, as its stone waterfront remains a sight to behold. 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 on an evening at leisure. Overnight in Šibenik. (B,L) **Optional excursion: Vis

DAY 6
SIBENIK TO SPLIT
SIBENIK TO SPLIT

Head away from the coast this morning for a look at one of the most spectacular features of inland Croatia. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the gateway to the Krka national park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes (take a quick dip if time permits). Afterwards, head back to the coast to visit the gem of Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir has been protected by UNESCO, just like its big neighbour and your next stop, the town of Split. Join the Split walking tour to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city centre. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living here. Dinner on board and overnight in Split. (B,D)

DAY 7
SPLIT TO OMIS
SPLIT TO OMIS

As you wave Split and its easy-going spirit goodbye, you’ll be heading to one of the neighbouring islands, Brač, known as the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća offers those with an interest a chance to learn more about this important craft. Sail back along the mainland past a dramatic karst landscape which signals your arrival into Omis, at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River canyon by boat excursion*. Overnight in Omiš. (B,L)

* Stonemasonry School in Pucisca

 

**Optional excursion: Cetina River
