      Day 1 Opatija Arrival & Rab

      Opatija, Croatia

      Start in lovely Opatija, a 19th-century wellness resort that was a favorite among the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. Your ship will be waiting in the harbor with boarding at midday. We’ll soon depart for Rab Island where a local guide will meet you for a tour of the atmospheric Old Town. It’s almost always filled with artists who create and display their works here. Learn more about its history while marveling at its architecture, which includes many Habsburg-era villas. A tasting of Rab’s signature cake, a recipe local nuns invented for a visiting pope, will be included with time to explore on your own afterward.

      • Excursions Included: Old Town Rab tour, including Rab cake tasting
      • Meals Included: Welcome Lunch

      Day 2 Zadar


      Cruise to Zadar with an Old Town revealing its 3,000-year history. Upon arrival you’ll join a local guide, accompanied by your Cruise Director, for a tour of its historic sites and a look at its famous pair of art installations along the waterfront. Locals and visitors alike gather here to enjoy the Greeting to the Sun (illuminated by the sun) and the Sea Organ, which utilizes the waves to play enchanting melodies. It’s especially magical at dusk with a backdrop of what Alfred Hitchcock once called the world’s most beautiful sunset. This evening on your ship, the Captain’s Dinner with live music will be hosted.

      Day 3 Sibenik & Krka National Park

      Krka National Park

      Continuing our journey by sailing along the Northern Dalmatian coast towards Sibenik, enjoy a swim stop before joining your Cruise Director and a local guide for an immersive tour of Krka National Park with its famous turquoise river and cascading waterfalls surrounded by lush and abundant flora. You’ll walk the scenic winding paths with opportunities to take advantage of the many photo ops along the way. After your tour, we’ll return to Sibenik with its meandering alleyways and stone steps that seem to lead to nowhere, yet present all sorts of surprises, including the UNESCO-listed St. James Cathedral which was featured in “Game of Thrones.”

      • Excursions Included: Guided tour in Krka National Park
      • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

      Day 4 Split

      Diocletian’s Palace, Split

      Our next destination is vibrant Split which owes its existence to Roman Emperor Diocletian who decided to retire here, ultimately building the 4th-century palace complex you see today. It contains some of the most well-preserved Roman architecture that still stands today as you’ll see while strolling through the maze of narrow streets and alleys with your local guide. You’ll get to peak into the palace cellars too, featured in “Game of Thrones” as the dungeon where Daenerys trained her dragons. The rest of the day is yours – we recommend strolling the seaside promenade, enjoying dinner here or in one of the palace restaurants.

      • Excursions Included: Guided tour of Split’s historical center, including Diocletian’s Palace
      • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

      Day 5 Hvar

      Turquoise sea of Hvar island

Beyond the glamorous façade, it boasts a rich history with many impressive landmarks, along with serene landscapes that include everything from vineyard-clad hills, fragrant lavender fields, and olive groves to rugged peaks and idyllic sandy beaches. You’ll enjoy a guided tour of the island that includes a visit to a highly desirable family-run vineyard for a wine-tasting experience. Return to Hvar Town with the evening yours to sample the wide range of exceptional bars and eateries independently.

      • Excursions Included: Guided tour of Hvar Island, including a wine-tasting experience

      Day 6 Korcula

      Korcula, Croatia

      We start the morning by departing for Korcula Island, with a swim stop along the way. Anchoring outside Old Town Korcula in the late afternoon, meet our local guide who will be waiting at a gate into the walled Old Town. Stepping inside, you might think you stepped into a fairytale with the enchanting narrow streets laid out in a fishbone pattern to protect residents from the elements. Notice the significant Venetian influence throughout, with Venetian-Gothic architecture like St. Mark’s Cathedral. Your guide will tell you about its link to the famous world explorer, Marco Polo. Afterward, you might join us for an optional Dalmatian dinner.

      • Excursions Included: Guided tour of Old Town Korcula
      • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

      Day 7 Dubrovnik

      Dubrovnik Walls

      As you near our final cruise destination, you’ll enjoy a view of Dubrovnik’s massive stone walls from the water, a jaw-dropping sight. After disembarking, you’ll enjoy a tour of what awaits within the walls. The limestone-paved streets of the Old Town are lined with remarkable Gothic and Renaissance architecture, including some impressive palaces and landmarks like the Old Pharmacy in Franciscan Monastery which was founded in 1317 for the Franciscan friars before serving the public. After touring, you might walk atop the city walls for panoramic views on both sides, including your day with a romantic sea-view dinner in a rooftop restaurant.

      Day 8 Dubrovnik Departure


      Parting ways is never easy, and saying farewell to your new friends, the captain, crew, and perhaps the country of Croatia, is no exception. You’ll have time for one last breakfast onboard, but you’ll want to be sure your bags are ready to go as your private driver will meet you upon disembarkation. A transfer is available to your hotel if you plan to spend more time here, or you can be taken to Dubrovnik’s airport for further travels, or return home.
