CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1 Saturday / EMBARKATION IN DUBROVNIK (Gruz harbor); D

Embark at any time after 14:00. Over a welcome drink and a snack, meet your Cruise Director and the crew and get acquainted with the rules and safety measures. Your journey begins with a dinner onboard and overnight in Dubrovnik.

Day 2 Sunday / DUBROVNIK – KORCULA – B, L

The far south of Croatia holds many gems. Start with an optional walking tour* of Dubrovnik, a.k.a. the Pearl of the Adriatic or the King’s Landing. Whatever you might consider to be the town’s main drawcard, Dubrovnik’s mighty city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic which successfully rivaled the Venetian Republic. Its outpost is your next stop, with your journey over interrupted only by a refreshing dip on the Elaphite Islands. You’ll know Korčula* was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. Overnight in Korčula.
*Dubrovnik town tour with a coach transfer from Dubrovnik port (Gruz) to the Old town – optional walking tour package
*Korcula town walking tour – optional walking tour package

Day 3 Monday / KORCULA – PUCISCA (Island of Brac) – OMIŠ; B, L

Breakfast is served over the stunning views of the playfully dispersed archipelago of Korčula, and followed by a scenic sail around the tips of Pelješac peninsula and Hvar Island, perhaps even a refreshing dip along the way. Stop to visit the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’, the island of Brač. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back at the mainland, get stunned by the dramatic rocks backing the lovely settlement of Omiš right at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River canyon in a boat excursion**. Overnight in Omiš.
*Stonemasonry school – optional walking tour package
**Optional excursion: Cetina river

Day 4 Tuesday / OMIŠ – SPLIT – excursion Skradin and Trogir; B, D

When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, the park is definitely worth a visit. After returning to the seaside, visit Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir is protected by UNESCO, just like its big neighbor and your next stop, the town of Split. Explore on your own or join our optional walking tour* to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city center. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living. Dinner on board and overnight in Split.
*Split Walking Tour – optional walking tour package

Day 5 Wednesday / SPLIT – HVAR (Island of HVAR) – VELA LUKA (Island of Korcula); B, D (Captains dinner)

In a splash of islands lined up directly across from Split, Hvar is the one known for purple lavender fields, potent red wines and glitzy jet-set feasts along starlit waterfronts. Especially so at its prime hotspot, the Old Town of Hvar, also the home of the oldest theatre in Europe and organized tourism in Croatia! Join an optional walking tour* to learn more about the interesting history and starry present of the town and the island, before sailing over for a swim at the beautiful archipelago of Pakleni Otoci. Later in the afternoon, drop the anchor in Vela Luka on Korčula, where you will enjoy dinner and overnight.
*Hvar town – optional walking tour package

Day 6 Thursday / VELA LUKA (Island of KORCULA) – POMENA (Island of MLJET) – SLANO; B, L

Your captain will choose a secluded bay to hop in the sea and start the day. Surrounded in deep green forests which earned Korčula its name and fame, meditate upon the sound of crickets and silence as you immerse yourself in the essence of this region: the crystal blue sea. Then continue to another green island, this time Mljet. The national park on the island is the home of two salty lakes connected with by a small channel with the sea. Nature lovers will get a kick from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking over to the small inlet in the center of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, join our optional excursion** – but whatever you do, do not miss out on Mljet! Spend the evening in the small settlement of Slano on the mainland, once adored by Dubrovnik sea captains. Why becomes self-evident as soon as you take your first stroll along the waterfront.
**Optional excursion: Mljet National Park, free time in the National park.

Day 7 Friday / SLANO – DUBROVNIK; B, L

In vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand: strong wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. Our optional tour the Taste of Dalmatia* highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano before sailing out to Dubrovnik. Midway, a dip on Lopud Island gets you up and ready to join an optional guided tour* of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded in immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous facades line up as you walk the same streets like the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glam, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik overnight.
**Optional excursion: Taste of Dalmatia

Day 8 Saturday / DUBROVNIK; B

Enjoy a farewell breakfast before disembarking by 09:00 AM. Make sure to keep in touch with your fellow travelers and the Cruise Manager and the crew, as MS Providenca will wait for you next year too.
