Day 1: Dubrovnik

Arrive in Gruz harbour, Dubrovnik, and check in from 1 pm this afternoon. Settle into your cabin and meet the crew and other guests.

Both are peaceful fishermen's villages where there is often a fabulous sunset. Overnight in the port.

Day 2: Sipan or Slano - Mljet - Korcula

After breakfast commence your journey towards the island and National Park of Mljet, enjoying a leisurely lunch on board as you sail. The afternoon is free to visit the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful little island. Here you can visit an old abbey and church or just use a small boat to roam around the National Park. Bicycles can also be hired to cycle around the paths that surround the lakes. Return to the boat as she continues to the island of Korčula, arriving late afternoon. Here you may join a guided tour of Korčula, a city surrounded by ancient walls and fortified bastions.

Day 3: Korcula - Vis

Today the ship cruises towards the little island of Biševo where you can visit the Blue cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon (weather dependent). Entrance to Blue Cave is to be paid on the spot (approx. EUR 10.-per person). The cruise continues to 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 Vis.

Day 4: Vis - Hvar

This morning the ship will call at the tiny island of Šćedro near the island of Hvar where you will have time to relax and refresh in the clean, crystal blue sea. Continues towards Hvar, 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. You may join a guided tour or explore at leisure. The city is home to a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes and you will be able to spend your evening sampling the local cuisine.

Day 5: Hvar (Bol) - Makarska

The next stop on your cruise will be the island of Brac. You will have some time to take a dip off one of the most famous beaches in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat - near Bol.

During a stroll you will discover numerous churches and other architectural and cultural sites. Overnight in port

Day 6: Makarska - Pucisca - Omis
