The evenings you have free to find a good restaurant or discover old churches and other historical monuments…

SUNDAY DUBROVNIK

Check in from 13.00 h onwards (GRUZ harbour) with dinner as your first meal. Due to the many different flight arrivals the first overnight is planned in Dubrovnik - a unique town on the Adriatic. The special charm of this old city are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic. A larger part of the monuments of history and culture belong to the fine but modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of the Gothic style. Use the afternoon to explore the city walls and plan what to do on your last night of the cruise when we return to this wonderful city. Overnight in Dubrovnik.

MONDAY DUBROVNIK – MLJET

After breakfast we continue our journey towards the island and national park Mljet. Lunch on board. The whole afternoon is free to enjoy the salt lakes in the National Park and enjoy the sun and sea on this peaceful island. In the middle of the large lake, inside the National park, one 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. Overnight in port Polača/Pomena.

TUESDAY MLJET – KORČULA

During breakfast departure for Korčula, the birthplace of MARCO POLO. Lunch on board in front of Lumbarda (part of Korčula).

Listen to the story of the stone walls, which took over two centuries to build. Overnight in port.

WEDNESDAY KORČULA – HVAR

Early in the morning we depart towards the little island Šćedro where we will have enough time to relax and refresh in the clean, crystal blue sea. Departure for Hvar after lunch. Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic. Here we can find the Renaissance cathedral with its original tower; also the oldest community theatre in Europe was founded here in 1612. City of Hvar offers plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes that are open long into the night. Hvar is often referred to as the sunshine island.

THURSDAY HVAR- TRSTENIK

We have to leave Hvar and continue our cruise towards the little town of Trstenik on Pelješac peninsula, where we will swim in the afternoon and spend the night. Lunch on board.

Chief occupations include farming, viniculture (the famous Dingač wine), fishing and tourism.

The famous Grgić winery is situated here – have a walk and taste some of their lovely wine!

FRIDAY TRSTENIK – ŠIPAN

Early in the morning we continue our trip towards the Elafiti islands. ELAFITI are a group of islands placed in the Adriatic Sea west of Dubrovnik. They include Šipan, Lopud and Koločep (Kalamota). They attract many tourists with their beautiful scenery and sandy beaches. Swimming and lunch is planned at one of the smaller Elafiti islands. ŠIPAN, the largest island of the Elafiti, is also the most distant from Dubrovnik. This is where we will spend the night.
