Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : Split

Location: Split

Accommodation: Accommodation aboard a 'Premium' Ship - spacious A/C en-suite cabins with double or twin beds

Meals Included: Lunch

Saturday. Split – Makarska. Hello Croatia and welcome aboard! Located in the heart of Dalmatia, Split became a popular retirement destination in the 4th century for Roman emperors such as Diocletian. Today, it's renowned for its variety of archaeological, historical and cultural monuments, among them the UNESCO listed Diocletian Palace. The first detailed tourist guide published in 1894, bears witness to the long tourist tradition in hospitable Split. Take some time to explore this Roman city - walk the streets where the Diocletian emperor once ruled and soak up the important historical sights.



Don’t miss the boat! Make your own way to the port, our cruise departs from SPLIT HARBOUR ON SATURDAY AT 13:00. From Split Harbour we cruise south to Makarska. If you require pre-tour accommodation we are able to offer suggestions, get in touch with our travel experts for recommendations.

Day 2 : Mljet Island

Location: Mljet

Accommodation: Accommodation aboard a 'Premium' Ship - spacious A/C en-suite cabins with double or twin beds

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Makarska – Mljet. Cast your 21st century worries adrift and get on with the business of sheer relaxation and soaking up the sun. Every day there are opportunities to swim and snorkel direct from the boat or from the sandy white beaches as our boat moors in sheltered bays and coves.



Today we cruise to the Peljesac Peninsula where we will stop to swim. With lunch onboard, we continue to the verdant green island of Mljet. Half of the island is a national park and is stunningly beautiful, with thick green forests of Aleppo pine encircling the two inland salt water lakes. The lakes, Malo Jezero (big lake) and Veliko Jezero (small lake), are interlinked and connected to the sea by a shallow tidal canal. In the middle of Veliko Jezero is the picturesque island of Saint Mary, home to a small 12th century Benedictine monastery, well worth the visit. The island is easy to navigate and it's possible to hire bicycles, motorized scooters, buggies and open top cars from the harbour. At dinner time try one of the many seafood kavarnas (taverns) along the waterfront.



In port at day’s end, head to a local restaurant or café. The freshness and variety of Croatian food is typical of Mediterranean cuisine. Seafood has a prominent place, as do fresh vegetables, cheeses and breads. Olives and grapes have been cultivated here since pre-Christian times.

Day 3 : Dubrovnik

Location: Dubrovnik

Accommodation: Accommodation aboard a 'Premium' Ship - spacious A/C en-suite cabins with double or twin beds

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Mljet – Dubrovnik. Arriving into Dubrovnik, we enjoy a guided tour and then spend the rest of the day independently exploring this ancient city. An optional cable car ride up to Srd Mountain is available to book locally, well worth the trip to enjoy the spectacular views of the old town. Much of the history of Dubrovnik can be characterised by its intact city walls, which run uninterrupted for 1940 metres encircling the city. This complex structure, one of the most beautiful and strongest fort systems in the Europe, is the main attraction to the city’s visitors. Five towers inbuilt along the city wall offer unforgettable views of the city and out to sea, and were once used to ward off invaders.



The old stone city is a labyrinth of criss-crossed cobbled streets and lanes, with a thousand and one taverns serving up cold beer and Mediterranean food, numerous souvenir and gift shops, many days can be spent exploring inside these city walls.

Day 4 : Sipan Island

Location: Šipan

Accommodation: Accommodation aboard a 'Premium' Ship - spacious A/C en-suite cabins with double or twin beds

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Dubrovnik – Sipan Island/Trstenik. This afternoon we cruise to Sipan Island or Trstenik. Trstenik is a pretty harbour town, located on the north eastern tip of the Peljesac Peninsula. The quaint fishing village boasts beautiful unspoiled coves and beaches, fresh water springs and many restaurants and bars along the harbour side strip.



Sipan Island is historically fascinating. During the 15th century it was a chic summer getaway for the very best Dubrovnik families, many of whom built palaces on the island. Sipan’s beaches are never overcrowded so you’ll have no trouble finding a pleasant place to leap into the clear sea. Later, we enjoy a Captains dinner on board.

Location: Korčula

Accommodation: Accommodation aboard a 'Premium' Ship - spacious A/C en-suite cabins with double or twin beds

Paul Evans  

Sailing Split Premium - 8 days

08-Oct-2019

All went as planned, the guide and boat Leonardo very good. Crew were excellent. Few points. Could have done with more specific information as to where to check in at Split seaport. Also the cabin we had was below decks, which we knew it would be, but what we didn't know was that it was by the propellers so it was really noisy. I left the cabin at 6am in the mornings when the engines started and went above (to watch for dolphins...which I actually saw). Think you should in the future make clients aware of the noise in the stern cabins. We also had noise on one occasion from the bar which was directly above us. These points did not spoil our holiday but if we ever go again we would only do so if we had an upper deck cabin. We independently booked two apartments in Split which we would thoroughly recommend, Suzy Apartments and the Ark Beach Hotel at Strobec.
