Day 1 DUBROVNIK ARRIVAL, Saturday (WR)
You will be transferred from Dubrovnik’s airport or your Dubrovnik hotel to Gruž Harbor, where embarkation begins at noon. Meet your fellow travelers and your Cruise Manager later at an on-board Welcome Reception. This evening, you can relax or take a walk through Dubrovnik’s vibrant streets.

Day 2 DUBROVNIK – NP MLJET – KORČULA, Sunday (B, L, D)
Start the day with a walking tour of Dubrovnik, the “Pearl of Adriatic” and a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll visit the Rector’s Palace and Franciscan Monastery’s Pharmacy before returning to the boat for lunch. As you dine,
set sail for Mljet Island. 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). After time to enjoy the spectacular scenery, continue cruising to Korčula, believed to be the birthplace of the explorer Marco Polo. Dinner tonight is on board.

Day 3 KORČULA – HVAR, Monday (B, L)
This morning, a walking tour of Korčula town takes you through its narrow, cobbled streets and includes a visit to the majestic Gothic-Baroque Cathedral of St. Mark. Board your boat for lunch and a swimming stop as you cruise. Late this afternoon, arrive in Hvar. On a sightseeing tour, see the first public theatre in Europe (older than Shakespeare’s theatre in the UK), the Franciscan Monastery and much more. Your evening is free in Hvar. You can explore more and dine on your own at one of the many restaurants in town.

Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor (during peak season in July and August) port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case transfer by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.

Day 4 HVAR – BOL – SPLIT, Tuesday (B, L)
Sail to Bol, home to one of the best beaches in Croatia, the Golden Horn. This vast, golden pebble beach is unique in that it changes shape and position depending on the winds. Over lunch on board, continue sailing to Split. Here, a walking tour shows off the historic inner city, built around the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral. Your evening is free in Split.

Day 5 SPLIT – TROGIR – ŠIBENIK, Wednesday (B, L) 
In the morning sail to the UNESCO-listed city of Trogir. Your time here is free to explore on your own. Back on board, enjoy lunch as you cruise to Šibenik, with stop on the way for a swim. Arriving in Šibenik, a walking tour shows you the highlights of the city, then your evening is at leisure.

Day 6 ŠIBENIK– SALI, Thursday (B, L, CD)
The Šibenik area is home to two National Parks: Krka, with its breathtaking waterfalls, and Kornati, comprised of more than 140 islands. Your day is devoted to these scenic destinations before you sail to Sali. Tonight, enjoy captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board.

Day 7 SALI – ZADAR, Friday (B, L) 
As you cruise this morning, stop for a swim (weather permitting). Late this afternoon, arrive in Zadar. A walking tour shows you Zadar’s historical center with the defensive walls built in 16th century, the ancient Port Gate where the Venetian lion still stands guard, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, Roman Forum (1st century BC) and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. Your evening is free in the city.

Day 8 ZADAR DEPARTURE, Saturday (B)
