DAY 7 | Korčula | Dubrovnik

There is no better way to catch first sight of famous Dubrovnik than from the sea and this is our final destination – Dubrovnik. It is one of the few walled cities on the sea in the world. Writer George Bernard Shaw described it as “heaven on earth”. We cruise alongside the old city walls for a true perspective of the majesty of this place. Lunch is served on deck as we head for Gruz harbour to dock. Once moored, we transfer to the old town for a guided walking tour of this unforgettable place. In your own time, why not walk those famous ramparts (all 1940 metres long!), or take the cable car from the Old Town to Srđ mountain for fabulous views of the city itself and the Elaphiti Islands (ticket included). If you want to explore any of the museums in more detail, such as Sponza or Rectors, now is the time. Overnight in Dubrovnik.

DAY 8 | Dubrovnik departure

After breakfast it’s goodbye from Dubrovnik, your crew and your new friends – for now at least. With your memories, photos and contacts you will keep sailing with us for some more time!

SPLIT

KRKA

ŠIBENIK

ZADAR

RAB

OPATIJA

DAY 1 | Dubrovnik | Korčula

Departure towards Korčula, an island best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, the famous explorer. Covering much of the island are the distinct, almost black pine forests so Korčula is also known as „the Black Island“. Korčula Town is like a mini Dubrovnik, as it also encased by medieval stone ramparts and towers. The famous Moreska sword dance-fight is thought to have come to the island when the Moors raged through this region and there are regular performances. A local guide will lead you through the old town where tiny streets are designed in a fish bone pattern for a very good reason that you will hear about! Lots of simple konobas, restaurants and cool cocktail bars for chill out time. Overnight in Korčula

DAY 2 | Korčula | Metković

Today we discover one of the last remaining wetland deltas in Europe. We cruise to Metković, on the banks of the river Neretva after which the delta is named. Here, mandarins grow by the water channels and we take a barge ride to explore the groves, the flora and fauna, wild birds and the traditional way of life of the Neretva people. There’s a delightful, “time warp” feeling like nowhere else on the coast. Narona archeological museum in Vid, which we visit, was formally inaugurated in 2007 as the first „in situ“ museum in Croatia exhibiting the remains of a Roman temple. Narona holds remains of a Roman temple – the Augusteum – and seventeen monumental marble sculptures of Roman emperors and their family members. This is where the ancient Illyrians, Greeks, Romans once sailed, and, according to legend, the pirates of Neretva planned their raids on enemy galleys. Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board scheduled for this evening. Overnight in Metković.

DAY 3 | Metković | Split

From Metković our cruise continues to Split, the capital of Dalmatia region, the second largest city in Croatia with the famous Diocletian’s palace, a UNESCO protected heritage site where Roman Emperor Diocletian chose his retirement spot! Upon arrival, a local guide takes us for a walk through the historic and buzzing old town centre and to the market
Overnight in Split

DAY 4 | Split | Krka | Šibenik

Wine and waterfalls! Cruise towards Skradin then board our coach. First stop is the famous Bibich winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin we walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park and visit “Skradinski Buk”. Jaw droppingly beautiful, this is the most popular part of the waterfall area. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 100 m wide, and the Krka river tumbles 45.7 meters. A never-to-forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming things and enjoy the crystal clear fresh water. Šibenik, is almost in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast and is our afternoon destination. Explore the glorious old town, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here, the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. Wander and discover the historic core and waterfront. Some good boutique shopping too. Dinner on board. Overnight in Šibenik

DAY 5 | Šibenik | Zadar

After breakfast we head for Zadar, the oldest university town in Croatia with an amazing heritage and where history looks you in the eyes: The Roman Forum from the 1st century, St Donat church from the 9th century – the most famous medieval Basilica and the city’s symbol, the mighty city walls, over 30 churches. Museums and former noble families’ palaces and villas in the old town. In recent years Zadar has added a touch of cool with the famous Sea Organs and “Greeting to the Sun” light installations, both located on the city’s waterfront. Watch the fabulous sunset from here. Guided city tour. Overnight in Zadar

DAY 6 | Zadar | Rab

Departure at 13h towards Rab, known as the “island of love” with an old town of the same name. Join us on guided city tours and see the medieval walls and the famous four towers (and maybe climb one of them later!) together with palaces, churches and squares. There’s a slight Montmartre feel with many artists painting and exhibiting out on the streets. Legend has it that local nuns created a special Rab cake for a visiting Pope and we will sample this after the tour. The recipe remains forever secret.
Overnight in Rab

DAY 7 | Rab | Opatija

The famous Opatija Riviera is often compared to the French Riviera and we have magnificent views of it. Royal families, celebrities and musicians have all stayed in Opatija. Our experienced guide will tell you magnificent history of Opatija and show you its most precious monuments. Walk the famous Franz Joseph promenade – Lungomare to the fishermen’s village of Volosko, home to some of the best seafood restaurants in Croatia, or enjoy Kraš Choco bar to try exclusive chocolate cocktails, cakes or ice-cream. There’s a real café-society here. Farewell evening dinner on board with live entertainment, a great opportunity for swapping addresses on the last evening.
Overnight in the port of Opatija.

DAY 8 | Opatija departure

After breakfast it’s goodbye from Dubrovnik, your crew and your new friends – for now at least. With your memories, photos and contacts you will keep sailing with us for some more time!
