  3. Day 3 - Relaxed Start

    Your Elegant Cruise Ship

    (Relaxed Start) After a free morning, your Local Host will accompany you to the Split harbour where your deluxe cruiser awaits.

Enjoy a welcome cocktail and meet-and-greet party.

  4. Day 4 - Relaxed Start

    Cruise to Korčula

    (Relaxed Start) Early morning, set off along the picturesque coast, jeweled sun-dappled islands. Stop for lunch in one of the secluded bays before arriving in Korčula, on the island of the same name. The locals claim the celebrated globetrotter, Marco Polo was born here. Make up your own mind during a walk with a Local Expert through the herringbone maze of streets and flagstone plazas, all framed by honey-coloured fortifications. Then you are at leisure to indulge your taste buds in the evening at one of Korčula's many winsome restaurants and bars.

  5. Day 5 - Relaxed Start

    Mljet and Dubrovnik

    (Relaxed Start) Head south to the Island of Mljet and join your Cruise Manager for a stroll to the Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) in the National Park. A gentle ferry ride brings you to the Benedictine Monastery of St. Mary, which rises out of the saline waters on its own small island. After time to explore, return to your cruise ship for lunch and then set sail for the mighty bastions of Dubrovnik. As the receding sun casts autumnal hues across the endless sky, drift along the monumental city walls and enjoy a delicious buffet dinner served on deck.

  6. Day 6 - Relaxed Start

    Dubrovnik, a ‘Paradise on Earth’

    (Relaxed Start) Transfer to the medieval old town of Dubrovnik, where aeons of untold feet have buffed the marbled streets and squares to a smooth patina. After your guided walking tour, take the cable car to Srđ Mountain for scenic views over the famous fortifications and Elaphiti Islands. Enjoy a free afternoon in this ‘Pearl of the Adriatic' - explore at your own pace, shop in the markets or stroll with friends along the ancient ramparts.

  7. Day 7 - Relaxed Start

    The Peljesac Peninsula

    (Relaxed Start) Call in at one of the adjacent Elaphiti Islands in the morning, summer playground for Dubrovnik aristocracy during the 16th century. Continue to the Pelješac Peninsula, renowned for its excellent wines. From the tiny port of Trstenik, transfer to the village of Kuna for a visit to the local church and monastery, followed by a visit to a nearby farm. Meet the locals and treat your taste buds to a typical village feast - an All-Inclusive dinner of Croatian delicacies, freshly made with their own produce. Late in the evening, return to your ship.

  8. Day 8 - Relaxed Start

    A Venetian Dream on Hvar

    (Relaxed Start) Drop anchor at the small island of Šćedro, with its quiet coves and pristine beauty providing the most irresistible backdrop for lunch. Continue westward for a swim in the crystal clear waters of the emerald Pakleni Islands, before crossing over to Hvar – the island of sunshine, lavender, sage and wine. Follow the gorgeous white stone, laid down by the Venetians to Hvar town's magnificent main square, considered one of the country's most beautiful. Lined with chic cafes, it unfurls onto the yacht-filled harbour, with the photogenic Renaissance Cathedral forming a stunning backdrop. There will be time to enjoy the secluded beaches, tiny fish restaurants or visit the crowning fortress for superb views over the town and island-studded bay.

  9. Day 9 - Relaxed Start

    Bol’s famous beach on the Island of Brač

    (Relaxed Start) Set sail for Bol in the morning, the oldest town on the island of Brač and one of Croatia's most famous seaside resorts. Walk along the promenade and swim at the postcard perennial Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), a shifting triangle of shingle, protruding into the cobalt waters of the Adriatic. At a local winery, relax with some appetisers and taste some of the revered wines of the island. The evening is reserved for the Captain's Celebration Dinner with live entertainment.
