      Itinerary

      Day 1 DUBROVNIK

      Mobile Dubrovnik

      This adventure of a lifetime through Croatia begins with private transfer from Dubrovnik Airport or your Dubrovnik hotel. You’ll be driven to Gruz Harbour where your deluxe cruising vessel awaits. Your cabin will be ready for you to get settled in at 1 p.m. Once you have stowed your bags you’ll get to explore the cobbled streets of Dubrovnik’s walled Old City with an inspiring local guide. Discover its iconic medieval landmarks and jaw-dropping Adriatic views before returning to the ship. This evening join the meet-and-greet cocktail reception where you’ll be welcomed by captain and crew, get introductions to your fellow island-hopping passengers and enjoy a three-course welcome dinner.

      • Meals Included: Welcome Dinner

      Day 2 DUBROVNIK - SLANO/STON

      Ston

      We’ll begin cruising today. Our first stop is on the mainland at the traditional fishing village of Slano located at the entrance to another fortified village, Ston. Take time to gaze up at the impressive ramparts and defensive walls before a short walk along the coast to an oyster farm. Here you’ll learn all about Ston’s most famous delicacy and enjoy samples of the fresh oysters too. Return to Slano after the oyster tasting for the captain’s dinner.

      • Excursions Included: Fresh oyster tasting experience at an oyster farm in Ston

Enjoy the views, which include a tiny islet in the middle of Great Lake that houses an ancient Benedictine monastery, before we continue on to our next island, Korcula. Most well-known as the birthplace of famous explorer Marco Polo, it was named Melaina Korkyra, or ‘Black Corfu’ by Greek colonists in the 6th-century BC because of its dense pine forests, so dark it almost appeared black. Our inspirational local guide will lead you on a walking tour through the Old Town, surrounded by thick stone defensive walls and towers built in medieval times. Note the many glimpses of its Venetian past like the Lions of St. Mark before enjoying time to dine on traditional local cuisine in one of the many outstanding eateries.

Today it’s still largely undeveloped by tourism, offering a laid-back experience to travels with magnificent traditional architecture and beautiful beaches. You’ll enjoy time on your own to soak up the atmospheric ambiance along the stone streets and the waterfront. With some of the most exclusive Croatian wines produced here on Vis Island, like Plavac and Vugava, this is a perfect time to enjoy a glass or two.

      Setting sail from Vis, we’ll make our way toward glamorous Hvar, one of the most popular Croatian islands, renowned for its nightlife and natural beauty, but our first stop will allow you to tour the famous Blue Cave on Bisevo Island. You’ll hop aboard a small vessel that can get through the narrow entrance to marvel at the brilliant blue glow of the interior which occurs when the rays of the sun enter through a crack in the rock. Please note that entry to the Blue Cave is subject to weather and sea conditions, which is why its listed as an option tour with a EUR20pp entrance fee payable on the day. After that magical experience, we’ll anchor at Hvar where you’ll be able to visit one of the most beloved wineries on the island, located in the small town of Jelsa. As we make our return, visit the impressive fort for a bird’s-eye view over Hvar and nearby islands.
