After breakfast we continue our journey towards the island and national park of Mljet. Lunch on board.
Free time to enjoy the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this tranquil
island. The large lake is inside the National park, and in the middle one can visit an old abbey and
church, or just use a canoe to roam around lakes in the National park. Bicycles can also be hired to
cycle around the paths surrounding the lakes. We continue to the island of Korčula where we arrive in
late afternoon. Join our guided tour of Korčula (included on Premium Superior). Surrounded by
ancient walls and fortified bastions Korčula’s old town is very well preserved with its layout and
structure dating back to 13th century. Overnight in port.
MONDAY KORČULA – VIS (B, L)
Early in the morning we cruise towards the little island of Biševo and visit the Blue cave, a magnificent
natural phenomenon. As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable our visit depends
on prevailing conditions, however you will be notified of this by the crew. Entrance to Blue Cave is to
be paid on the spot (approx. EUR 14.- per person). We continue towards the island of Vis, which has
unique geographical position and was once a strategic harbour for the Yugoslav navy – it was closed
to the public until recently. Because of this very isolation, Vis retained a special charm of ‘the
Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis,
situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban
centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply
take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront. For those
wandering to see more – rent a car or scooter and explore this wonderful island on you own.
TUESDAY VIS – HVAR (B, L)
Our next destination is the tiny island of Šćedro near the island of Hvar where we have time to relax
and refresh in the clean, crystal blue sea. Departure for Hvar after lunch followed by optional guided
tour (included on Premium Superior). Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. Here there is the
magnificent, Renaissance cathedral with its original tower; also the oldest community theatre in
Europe which was founded here in 1612. Hvar Town offers plenty of restaurants, bars cafes and
clubs, open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine and jet-set island.
WEDNESDAY HVAR – BOL – MAKARSKA (B, L)
We leave Hvar behind and continue our cruise towards the island of Brač, heading to the town of Bol,
best known for its famous Zlatni rat beach (Golden horn), a natural phenomenon that with its distinct
shape and form dominates other beaches of Croatia. Directional winds and waves cause the shape
of the beach to often change. After the swimming break at the horn we continue towards Makarska
with it's Mediterranean feel. During a stroll you will discover numerous churches and other
architectural and cultural sites. Overnight in port.
