Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is known for its beaches and the fortresslike complex at its center, Diocletian's Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses. Check-in is from 10.30am to 12.00pm (midday). Please note your cabin may not be ready until 12:30pm. Your ship will depart the harbour at 1pm sharp. Enjoy a traditional 3-course lunch onboard as we depart Split Harbour at 13:00 and commence sailing towards our first destination - the island of Brac. Brac is the largest of the Dalmatian islands, we will moor up in the waterside town of Milna. The island of Brac is famous for its native Mediterranean pine trees, relaxing atmosphere, and beautiful secluded bays. You'll spend your afternoon swimming and relaxing the stunning areas surrounding Milna, with the evening reserved to experience a local restaurant or waterside cafe.
Enjoy breakfast overlooking the stunning Adriatic as we cruise towards Hvar island. Relax in the Croatian sunshine or take a dip in the refreshing Adriatic as we pass by the Golden Horn near the beautiful city of Bol on the Southern side of the Island, before lunch is served onboard. After lunch, we continue on to Hvar, the ‘French Riviera’ of the Adriatic. Feel the part sipping champagne and docking alongside other super yachts. Although a haven for celebrity spotters, Hvar still remains authentic to its roots, with cobbled streets, historic architecture and 7th century fort ruins overlooking the town. Don’t miss out on the included Hvar orientation walk to see the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower, as well as the oldest community theatre in Europe, which dates back to 1612.
Today we sail south-east to one of the most beautiful islands in Croatia, Mljet, which is actually a National Park and Croatia’s greenest island; covered by dense Mediterranean pine forest. The National Park is famous for its two salt lakes in the north end of the island - Veliko and Malo Jezero, as well as the 12th century Benedictine monastery in the middle of Veliko. You're able to explore the stunning natural beauty of the island by cycling or walking around to where the sea meets the lake. After exploring, spend your afternoon on the top deck of the ship watching a magical Mljet sunset with a drink in hand.
There is nothing like waking up in the peaceful Mljet and enjoying breakfast as we cruise towards the UNESCO protected and spectacularly beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Enjoy the beautiful views along the way towards "heaven on earth" - according to the famous writer George Bernard Shaw. We will arrive into Dubrovnik in the afternoon, allowing plenty of time to be spent exploring Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik’s Old Town is wonderfully captivating with its 1,940m long 15th century stone walls built to protect the city from invasion. It is highly recommended to walk around the walls to grasp the diverse nature of this city. Walk along the Stradun, the promenade inside the old city walls and meander the alleyways to discover numerous local restaurants, shops and bars. The included Dubrovnik walking tour is a great way to learn about this wonderful city.
Relax as we set sail for the island of Korčula, and enjoy lunch in the beautiful Lumbarda Bay. The town of Korčula, said to be the home of Marco Polo, was mostly built in the 15th century, and the island's local population were famous for their decorative stone carving work, which to this day still adorn the city's facades. Korčula is also known as a gastronomic destination with many great restaurants wrapped around the seaside promenade. You may be lucky enough to see a performance of “Moreska” - a dramatic sword dance, which was widespread in the Mediterranean countries in the 11th century, but today only exists here on the island. We will overnight in Korčula Town and enjoy a traditional Croatian dinner in the village of Zrnovo, one of the oldest settlements on the island.
Enjoy cruising along the Adriatic coast as we make our way to the Makarska Riviera. Spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful beaches along the riviera, relaxing onboard or enjoy strolling the streets of Makarska, exploring the beachfront markets. Take a walk around the tip of the riviera for a wonderful view of the Biokovo Mountain range and get up close to the statue of St Peter, watching protectively over this beautiful town. Unwind with a cocktail as you absorb the beauty of Makarska and watch the spectacular sunset over the Adriatic.
Embrace your last morning cruising the Dalmatian coast as we make our way back to Split. Enjoy your final swim stop in secluded bays just outside of Split and then take in this spectacular city as we cruise into Split harbour in the afternoon, This UNESCO World Heritage city bases the city centre in and around the stunning Diocletian's Palace, the Roman emperor Diocletian’s retirement palace from 295-305 AD. Stroll through the palace basement filled with market stalls and outside experience the historical architecture of this beautiful palace that consists of 220 buildings within its boundaries and is home to 3,000 people. Split is now the second largest city in Croatia and continues to grow every year with numerous, cafe bars and traditional Dalmatian restaurants.
