Detailed Itinerary

You are transferred from the airport or from your hotel in
Dubrovnik to Gruz Harbor, where embarkation begins at
noon. Later, join your fellow travelers and your cruise
manager for an onboard welcome reception with dinner.
This evening, you can relax on board, or take a stroll
through Dubrovnik’s Old Town. (D)

We start the day with breakfast and a walking tour of
Dubrovnik, the “Pearl of Adriatic” and a UNESCO World
Heritage site. We visit the Rector’s Palace and Franciscan
Monastery’s Pharmacy before returning to the ship. While
we set sail for Mljet Island, lunch is served. Mljet National
Park features five types of forest, many species of birds,
and two deep lakes: Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) and Malo
Jezero (Small Lake). Spectacular scenery accompanies
us all the way to Korcula, believed to be the birthplace of
the explorer Marco Polo. Dinner tonight is on board. (B, L,
D)

This morning, after breakfast, we go on a walking tour
through the narrow, cobble-stone streets of Korcula town.
We visit to the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St.
Mark. Thereafter, we enjoy lunch on board. A swimming
stop follows en route to Hvar where we arrive late
afternoon. Among the many places we see on our
sightseeing tour, the Franciscan Monastery stands out.
Our evening is free in Hvar to explore even more and
dine on your own at one of the many restaurants in town.
(B, L)
Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor
(during peak season in July and August) the port of call
can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case,
transfers by bus will be organized to and from Hvar

We sail to Bol, home of the Golden Horn, one of the most
breathtaking beaches in Croatia. This vast, golden
pebble beach is unique in that it changes shape and
position depending on the direction of the winds. During
lunch on board, we sail to Split. Here, a walking tour
shows off the historic inner city, built around the Palace of
the Roman Emperor Diocletian, a UNESCO World Heritage
Site. We see the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its
Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the
Peristyle, and the Cathedral. The evening is free to
discover more of Split. (B, L)

In the morning, we sail to the UNESCO-listed city of Trogir.
Our time here is free to explore on your own. Back on
board, lunch is served while we cruise to Sibenik. En
route, we make a stop for a swim. In Sibenik, a walking
tour shows the highlights of the city. The evening is at
leisure. (B, L)

The Sibenik area is home to two National Parks: Krka, with
its breathtaking waterfalls, and Kornati, comprised of
more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystalclear water. Our day is devoted to tour these scenic
destinations. Afterward, we sail to Sali. Tonight, aboard
our ship, enjoy the Captain’s dinner with live
entertainment and a glass of wine. (B, L, D)

As we cruise, and weather permitting, we stop for a swim
in the morning. After lunch, we arrive in Zadar. The city’s
compact pedestrian zone is perfect to explore on foot.
Admire the 16th century walls built by the Venetians as a
defense against the Turks. We see the Port Gate, where
the Venetian lion still guards the entrance, the Square of
the Five Wells, the Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum
and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. After
the tour, we stop for a tasting of traditional Maraschino
liqueur. Our evening is free in Zadar. (B, L)

After breakfast, we disembark and bid farewell to our
crew. We journey north by motorcoach for a visit to
Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage
site. Here, we enjoy the breathtaking beauty while we
walk around several of the lower lakes. The Park is a
natural wonder with 16 terraced lakes surrounded by
wooded mountains and lush vegetation. Afterward, we
motor on to Opatija where dinner is served at our hotel.
(B, D)

After breakfast, we drive to Pula for an orientation tour
of this strategic port city. We visit the preserved
Amphitheater, the sixth largest in the world. Then we
continue on to the beautiful resort of Rovinj. There’s free
time to explore the old town and its narrow streets
before we return to Opatija. (B)

After breakfast, we travel to Slovenia and visit the
unique and beautiful Postojna Cave, one of the largest
in Europe. We tour this wondrous subterranean world by
miniature electric train. Later, we continue to Italy where
Venice beckons with its idyllic setting on 119 islands. (B)

We begin our exploration of Venice with a boat ride to
Murano Island, famous for its artistic glassware. In a
working glass factory, we see master craftsmen
demonstrate the art of traditional Venetian
glassblowing. We then depat for St. Mark’s Square, for a
walking tour with visits of St. Mark’s Basilica and the
Doge’s Palace. We take in views of the Bell Tower and
the Bridge of Sighs. The balance of the day is at leisure
to enjoy Venice at your own pace, shop, or perhaps join
an optional gondola ride. In the evening, we gather for
a farewell dinner in a local restauran. (B, D)
