    Our Cruise Ships

    MS My Wish

    A brand-new deluxe ship for the 2020 cruising season, the MS My Wish offers a luxurious, intimate sailing experience for exploring some of the best Croatia has to offer from its magnificent medieval cities to gem-like islands. Her smaller, yacht-like size means she can navigate narrow waterways and make berth in ports that larger vessels can’t – with a smaller passenger-to-crew ratio and experienced, friendly staff, a highly personal excursion with exceptional service is just about guaranteed.

      Start this magical cruise from Dubrovnik Airport where you’ll be met by your driver for a private transfer to the ship in Gruz Harbour. If you prefer to arrive early, a transfer can be arranged from your Dubrovnik hotel. Check-in is available from 1 pm on, and after getting settled into your cabin with your bags stowed, join our local guide for a tour of the walled Old City. Stroll the limestone-paved streets to marvel at iconic historic landmarks like Rector’s Palace before returning to the ship for the Welcome Dinner. It includes introductions to the captain, crew, and your fellow passengers, along with a three-course dinner.

      Oyster Wine Tour CroatiaSton Croatia

      Our ship departs Gruz Harbour, traveling to the traditional fishing village of Slano which sits at the entrance to Ston, another walled village famous for its cultivation of shellfish. Marvel at the ramparts while taking a short walk to an oyster farm where you’ll enjoy an oyster tasting, sampling the delicacies fresh from the sea. Many feel they’re some of the most flavorful in the world, due at least in part to the high concentration of salt and other minerals in the bay. As you sample them with some Croatian wine, you’ll learn more about how they’re harvested too. Afterward, join us for the Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment.

      Excursions Included:
      Oyster & Mussel tasting

      Continuing on to Mljet Island, you’ll explore its national park. Discover the highlights, including two saltwater lakes ranging in shades from deep emerald to brilliant turquoise. In the larger lake, you’ll see an islet topped with a 12th-century Benedictine monastery. Our next destination is Korcula, best known as the birthplace of international explorer Marco Polo. In the Old Town, surrounded by walls, towers, and gates, meet our local guide for a tour, viewing highlights in the historic center like the House of Marco Polo, now a museum, St. Mark’s Cathedral, and more, with time to dine afterward in one of the many traditional local eateries.

      Vis

      Vis 2D4Pakleni Islands 2

      Vis and its irresistible charms are our next destination. As it’s rather isolated as the furthest inhabited island from mainland Croatia and was closed off to the public for 40 years while used as a naval base, it’s remained largely unspoiled by tourism. You’ll feel as if you’ve traveled back in time as you stroll the stone streets in town and along the waterfront, enjoying its well-preserved traditional architecture. Some of the most exclusive Croatian wines are produced on this island, including Vugava and Plavac, so you might want to enjoy a glass before returning to the ship for the night.

      Meals Included:
      Breakfast & Lunch

    • Day 5

      Before we arrive at famous Hvar, known for its world-class restaurants and lively nightlife that attracts celebrities and all sorts of VIPs, we’ll stop so you can tour the Blue Cave. Provided conditions are right, after heading through the narrow entrance in a small boat, you’ll witness the interior illuminated in a brilliant blue when the sun’s rays enter through a crack and reflect off the limestone sea bottom. Once in Hvar, head to the small town of Jelsa, visiting one of the island’s most sought-after wineries for a tasting. The evening is yours, ideal for dining alfresco with a sunset view.

Also, one of the most photographed, Zlatni Rat (AKA the Golden Horn), is surrounded by a dreamy pale blue sea on three sides. If you prefer, the nearby town of Bol is a great place for enjoying coffee and some people-watching. Once back on board, we’ll continue cruising to the UNESCO-listed Trogir, an open-air museum filled with impressive medieval towers, churches, palaces, and monasteries. Its Cathedral of St. Lawrence is considered one of the country’s finest examples of sacral architecture. Learn more about it on a guided walking tour.

      Capping off your island-hopping cruise, we’ll explore the ancient city of Split with its fascinating history that dates back to the late 3rd century, when Roman Emperor Diocletian chose the site to build his retirement residence. Our local guide will take you on a walking tour through the historic center and this vast complex that covers nearly half of it, with many incredibly well-preserved buildings from Roman times. Afterward, enjoy dinner on your own in one of the many restaurants or cafes housed in those ancient structures, followed by an evening stroll on the waterfront promenade like the locals often do.

      Departure day has arrived. While it’s something that few of us look forward to, you’ll be able to take many memories of a lifetime, and probably countless photos, along with you. Enjoy breakfast aboard the ship and time for goodbyes to the captain, crew, and your fellow passengers, many of whom are likely new friends. With your bags packed and ready, you’ll meet your driver for a private transfer which can be taken to an onward local hotel if you’d like to spend more time here, or, head to the airport to catch your flight home or enjoy further travels.
