Itinerary

Expand All

icon Day 1: Split (Croatia) – Hvar (Dalmatian Islands)

Meals Included:

  Lunch


Ready to spend your day horizontal on a sun-soaked deck. Diving head-first into translucent aquamarine water. Exploring the cobbled streets of ancient towns. And eating allll the seafood, stew and sauce-drenched pasta your speedos can handle? We thought so. Meet your awesome AF new crew in Split, then we’ll away anchors and motor to our first swim stop. Next: grub’s up – time to test how stretchy those swimmers really are with our first group lunch. And later, we’ll go for a stroll up to the fortress for some I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E views. Tonight, there’s an optional BBQ dinner aboard the boat. Dig in, mateys.

icon Day 2: Hvar – Korcula

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Rise and shine sailors! Or sleep in – you do you. This morning is all about refreshing swim stops and embarrassing belly flops (soz, we mean world-class diving), plus seriously good food served up by our very own on-board chef. Later, we’ll sail on to the (supposed) home of Marco Polo. Known for its dry Croatian wine and dense pine forests, we’ll hit the cobblestone alleys for an orientation tour. Then? The afternoon is yours for the taking. You could climb to the top of Massimo’s old-school tower for a colourful cocktail. Or tuck into a mouth-watering serving of peka. This baby is slow-cooked in hot coals for 6 hours so make sure you pre-order!

icon Day 3: Korcula – Dubrovnik (Croatia)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


What’s your plan of action this morning? Swim? Sunbathe? Stuff (your face)? It’s the perfect opportunity to peel open that new pack of playing cards – Go Fish, anyone? This afternoon, we’ll dock at the most famous walled city in Europe. Thanks Game of Thrones. Take a moment to regret that big lunch as we squeeze through Dubrovnik's narrow cobblestone streets with a local guide. And later? Head to Buza Bar for relaxed cliffside bevvies. Or party like it's 1599 at the world-renowned nightclub inside a 16th-century fortress. Damn, the olden days were wild.

icon Day 4: Dubrovnik

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Don’t be fooled. Dubrovnik is so much more than snapping a selfie on some steps. Though you can totally get your fill of GOT with a Cersei-themed tour today, if that’s your thing. Rather take to the water? Sign up to a sea kayaking excursion – swim stops at the island of Lokrum included. Get your fix of awesome views with a stroll along the ancient city walls, or take the cable car up Mt Srd where there’s #nofilter required. Then tonight: hit the d-floor for round two. Or find a local wine bar to sample Croatia’s tasty grape-juice. DE-lish.

icon Day 5: Dubrovnik – Mljet (Dalmatian Islands)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Shake off last night’s antics with another scenic AF swim stop. Today: it’s on to Mljet. Despite its lack of vowels, this place is pretty spesh. Once we dock, you’ve got the whole afternoon to simply do you. Our suggestion? Opt in to explore the National Park. Hire a bike and whiz around on two wheels. Take a boat over the Islet Melita and check out the monastery. Or jump in a kayak and go for a paddle. Tonight, there’s an optional Captain’s dinner aboard the boat to get stuck into. All in favour? Aye, aye!

icon Day 6: Mljet – Makarska (Croatia)

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Land ahoy! Time to set a course for the Makarska Riviera, one of the best unsung holiday spots in Europe. Score a spot at the bow (front) of the boat for the ride in – the view is going to blow. your. mind. Then, this afternoon is totally up to you. Take a stroll along the pretty promenade. Unleash your inner thrill-seeker with a side of adrenaline-pumping water sports. Lounge about on the pebbly beach. Or sip on a cold beer at one of the beachfront bars. Don’t forget to ask your Topdeck rep for some dinner recommendations – the seafood here is ridiculously good. Tonight, prepare to party pirate-style at Deep (think: cave club).

icon Day 7: Makarska – Split

Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


Ok, nobody panic – this is our last day together. So make every second count. Savour one last swim stop before we pull into Split this afternoon. Ready to roam like a Roman and discover a few thousand years of history? Opt in for a walking tour and tick off the likes of Diocletian’s Palace, Saint Domnius Cathedral and the Riva. Or head up to Prva Vidilica Na Marjanu for immense sunset views over the city. This is what you came for. Tonight, gather the gang for one last dinner together and give this epic adventure the send-off it deserves!

icon Day 8: Split

Meals Included:

  Breakfast


After breakfast, it’s time to walk the plank. Jk – but seriously, you do have to bid farewell to your fellow shipmates *sob*. Swap those Insta handles – you’ll need them to plan next year’s reunion trip. Who said the adventure has to end here? Slovenia and Montenegro are only a stone’s throw away...

    What’s your vax status?

    I’m fully vaccinated (or soon will be): if you’ll be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before your trip begins, you’re good to go! You’ll just need to show proof of this to your Trip Leader on the day your trip departs. Please bring an electronic and/or printed copy of your vaccination status showing your full name (the one on your passport, obvs) and the date your last required dose of the vaccine was given – which must be at least 14 days before departure.
    I’m medically exempt: if you’re unable to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons, you’ll need to provide us with a few things before your trip begins. This will include a copy of an official government exemption, or a letter from your doctor, emailed to us at least 14 days before your trip departs. You’ll also need to take a PCR test three days before your trip and email us the result. If we do not receive these within the given time – or your PCR test result is positive – you will not be able to travel with us. Please also bring electronic and/or printed copies of your medical exemption and negative PCR test result with you on your trip.
    I’ve not been vaccinated: if you’ve not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and you’re not exempt from having the vaccine for medical reasons, unfortunately you won’t be able to travel with us. We’re super serious about the safety of our Topdeckers and the communities we visit. For that reason, you must be fully vaccinated to join us – unless you are medically exempt.
