Highlights


• Relax and enjoy sailing the crystal waters of the Adriatic and explore the less visited central Croatian coast and islands.

• Enjoy Split & Hvar

Enjoy a 3- course lunch on board as we depart Split Harbour at 1pm and sail to the seaside town of Trogir. This tiny, medieval town is packed with stunning architecture, impressive fortifications, and cosmopolitan restaurants. Trogir is the perfect place to soak up an authentic Croatian experience, so why not spend your afternoon strolling through the fascinating Old Town, swimming or relaxing in this beautiful area. Enjoy the evening experience of a local restaurant or waterside cafe.
This morning we’ll leave Trogir behind and sail toward the beautiful city of Sibenik, the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic. We will be stopping off at a secluded bay for a swim, where you’ll catch a glimpse of the beautiful island of Zlarin as we make our way to this evening’s destination. We’ll moor in the protected natural harbour of Sibenik, giving you every opportunity to discover the city at your leisure, indulge in coffee and cake on the waterfront riva, or explore the abundance of medieval forts, cathedrals and churches located a stone’s throw away from the ship.
Enjoy breakfast looking out over the stunning Adriatic Sea as we cruise toward the fascinating city of Zadar; historically known as the center of Dalmatia. This notable town has stood the test of time and is filled with beautiful Roman architecture and medieval churches, yet blended with cosmopolitan cafes and quality waterfront restaurants. Spend the afternoon along the waterfront of Zadar, taking in the city’s two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation, which need to be seen and heard to be believed! Sip on champagne as you marvel at Zadar’s most famous attraction; the stunning sunset out over the sea, before indulging in delicious local cuisine. Included: Zadar Orientation Tour
Relax as we set sail and head toward the coastal town of Vodice and enjoy a 3-course lunch at your captain's favourite secluded bay along the way. Spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful pebbled beaches, relaxing on-board, or take part in an optional trip to the Krka Waterfalls National Park, one of the most beautiful spots in all of Croatia. Included: Visit to Krka Waterfalls National Park
Early in the morning and subject to weather conditions (which are normally excellent), we will make our way south to the island of Vis, one of the most outer-lying islands on the Dalmatian coast. Vis has been used over the centuries as a strategic military port and saw action by the Allied military through WWII against Italy and the Germans. It has only recently been open to commercial tourism and still retains a lot of charm as it not frequently visited due to its location. Today it is an idyllic island which is most famous for the outer-lying Blue Cave, an island cave system accessible only by boat. The blue turquoise water and refracted light into the cave make for exciting and amazing photo opportunities. If by chance the weather and wind isn't suitable to visit Vis, then an alternative stop will be made on the itinerary as Croatia is full of beautiful islands and ports. The captain reserves the right to amend this as his number one priority is always comfort and safety. Included: Visit to the blue Caves
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 at our mid-morning swim stop before lunch is served onboard. After lunch we continue onto Hvar, the ‘French Riviera’ of the Adriatic. Feel the part sipping champagne and docking alongside other superyachts and possibly sighting a celebrity. Hvar still remains authentic to its roots though with cobbled streets and historic architecture, with the 7th century fort ruins overlooking the town, a must-see for breathtaking views. 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. Included: Hvar Orientation Tour
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. Included: Split Orientation Tour
Enjoy an early breakfast after which it is time to say goodbye to the crew and your fellow guests! Disembark from the ship by 9am. NOTE: It is possible for you to leave as early as needed on Sunday morning to catch flights as the ship will be in port by Saturday night
