DAY 2: DUBROVNIK – SLANO (B, L, T)
After breakfast, we will visit the old town of Dubrovnik, where a local guide will take you on a sightseeing tour of the UNESCO-protected old town, acquainting you with the most important monuments and hidden spots. After returning to the ship, we set sail for Slano, a picturesque town in a deep cove for a few hours sailing to the north of Dubrovnik. After lunch on board and a swim stop, we will arrive in Slano. Upon arrival, we will embark on our gastronomic adventure in Ston, well known for its extensive Medieval walls and long tradition of oyster farming, spanning over two thousand years. A short boat ride to the oyster farm in the middle of the bay and with a glass of wine in hand, we’ll be tasting this natural aphrodisiac straight from the sea. Talk about a gourmet’s dream! We arrive back in Slano later in the afternoon and the remainder of the day is yours to enjoy. Your cruise manager will be on hand to assist with info about local sights and will have some suggestions for nice dinner spots.
Overnight in Slano.
DAY 3: SLANO – MLJET (B, L, CD)
Early in the morning, we depart for Mljet, one of the most beautiful and most densely forested islands of the Adriatic. Isolated and untouched, the island is known for its mysticism, olive groves, vineyards, and rich forests. Take in the rich flora and fauna, and peacefully enjoy the pristine beauty of natural surroundings. After lunch on board and a swim stop along the way, we arrive in the town of Pomena (population: 52!). Upon arrival in Pomena, a visit to a national park encompassing most of the island is planned. The park’s highlights are the two saltwater lakes – the Little Lake and the Big Lake with its Benedictine monastery on the Isle of St. Mary. This evening you are invited to the Captain’s dinner aboard the ship.
Overnight in Pomena.
DAY 4: MLJET – KORCULA (B, L)
We depart for the island of Korcula during breakfast, making sure to stop for a swim in one of the many secluded bays along the way. Lunch will be served on board. In the afternoon we arrive at Korcula, the birthplace of the famous explorer Marco Polo. Our local guide will take you on a unique tour of the old town of Korcula. You will hear many interesting stories and legends about the city and the life of Marco Polo, the most famous son of Korcula. The casual approach to discovering the history and culture of Korcula will surely delight you. In the evening, we suggest you enjoy one of Korcula’s many exquisite restaurants. If unsure, you can always get some good tips for dinner or points of interest from your cruise manager.

DAY 5: KORCULA – VIS (B, L)
In the morning we set sail towards the island of Vis. With lunch on board and a swim stop along the way, we arrive in Vis in the early afternoon. The island of Vis, formerly a major naval base, was closed to tourists from 1945 until the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 90s, which helped preserve the authentic appearance of its villages. In the afternoon you will have time to enjoy Vis at your own pace and enjoy everything it has to offer. We suggest a visit to the Archaeological Museum, located in the old Austrian fort Gospina batarija (Batteria Della Madona) right on the shoreline, or just a simple stroll along the seaside promenade as most of the bars and restaurants are located along it so you are sure to find a lovely place to have dinner. You can always get some good tips for dinner or points of interest from your cruise manager.
Overnight in Vis.
DAY 6: VIS – BLUE CAVE – HVAR (B, L, D)
In the morning, before breakfast, we sail towards BiSevo and the unique natural phenomenon that is the Blue Cave. The Blue Cave is a wonder of the Adriatic Sea and the most attractive sight of the island of Vis, and you will get to see for yourself why so many people visit it each year. After the visit to the Blue Cave*, we set sail for Hvar, with a swim stop on the Paklinski Islands and lunch served on board. After this enchanting experience, we continue our journey towards Hvar, the longest island in Croatia, the sunniest in all of Europe (2724 hours of sunshine per year) and undeniably among the most beautiful islands in the world. Upon arrival join the guided tour of Hvar and learn why this amazing town is a must-see on the historical map of Croatia. Your evening is free to explore this amazing holiday spot by yourself.
Overnight in Hvar.
*Please note that the port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad because of the limited capacity of Hvar harbor. In that case, transfer to and from Hvar will be organized by Zantium Travel.
*Please note that the Blue Cave is only accessible with small boats through an entrance just 1.5m high so it is unfortunately easily made inaccessible by bad weather and high waves.
DAY 7: HVAR– SPLIT (B, L)
Early in the morning, while breakfast is served, we set sail for the island of Brac. Before lunch on board, you will have time to enjoy a swim stop in one of the beautiful coves that dot the coast of Brac. After the swim stop, we continue on our way to Split, arriving in the early afternoon. Upon arrival, join our local guide for a tour of Split’s old town to get acquainted with emperor Diocletian’s Palace and learn about the rich heritage of Split’s millennial history.
