Muno Pic

Although I was born in Zambia, raised in Zimbabwe (two land-locked countries), I am very passionate about travel on the sea. I’ve cruised extensively on luxury small ships and ocean liners around the world – I look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

You can check in from 2 pm on, but if you arrive early our friendly crew will be happy to stow your bags while you explore unencumbered. There’s lots to enjoy just steps away, including the seaside Riva promenade.

    Day 2 Split & Trogir

    Trogir, Croatia

    Before we begin cruising, you’ll join our local guide for a tour of the historic center in Split. This UNESCO-listed site includes the vast 4th-century Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace with its maze of streets and alleyways lined with well-preserved centuries-old buildings with Greek, Roman, and Venetian influence. Afterward, we’ll make our departure for medieval Trogir. Its walled town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like an open-air museum with its well-preserved buildings that include the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral of St. Lawrence, one of the country’s finest examples of sacral architecture. Explore on your own, walking the promenade to see the 15th-century Kamerlengo castle/fortress.

    • Excursions Included: Guided tours of Split & Trogir
    • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 3 Hvar

    Zlatni Rat Beach

    While Hvar is our ultimate destination, we’ll cruise to Brac Island first for a swim stop off the shores of world-famous Zlatni Rat, a beach with glistening white pebbles surrounded by transparent blue waters on three sides, jutting into the sea for nearly a third of a mile. After lunch, we’ll continue to sunny Hvar, known for attracting international jet setters and nature lovers with its beautiful beaches, fragrant lavender fields, and vineyard-covered hills. Upon arrival, we’ll head to one of the island’s most popular family-run wineries for a tour and tasting alongside local snacks. Returning to Hvar Town afterward, enjoy the evening at your leisure.

    • Excursions Included: Wine tasting tour on Hvar Island
    • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 4 Vis

    Pakleni Islands

    Cruising the island gems known as the Paklenis as we make our way toward Vis, enjoy an extended swim stop in one of the hidden coves with crystal-clear blue waters. You’ll have time to use some of the water toys on board too. Once we reach Vis, you can soak up its peaceful atmosphere. Relatively unspoiled by tourism with a location as the furthest island from the Croatian coast as well as having been closed to the public for 40 years while used as a naval base, it offers many unique charms and produces some fabulous wines – sample them during a family-run winery tasting.

    • Excursions Included: Wine tasting tour on Vis Island
    • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 5 Blue Cave & Korčula

    Korcula

    An early departure this morning brings the opportunity to visit the Blue Cave on the island of Bisevo. You can hop into a small boat to tour its interior, experiencing the magic when the sunlight beams through a crack in the roof, reflecting off the white sea bottom to illuminate it in a surreal blue glow. Continuing to our overnight destination of Korcula Island, you’ll meet our local guide at the gate for a walking tour of the Old Town that’s enclosed by stone defensive walls. Afterward, sit down in one of the many eateries to enjoy an authentic traditional meal.

    • Excursions Included: Guided tour of Korcula / Guided tour of the Blue Cave (entrance fee payable locally)
    • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

    Day 6 Mljet and Slano/Ston

    Mljet National Park

    Lush Mljet is next on our agenda, a favorite for its stunning natural beauty, including abundant greenery. You can join your cruise manager for the short walk to the saltwater lakes in the heart of Mljet National Park and even take a boat ride to the tiny islet in Great Lake to visit the ancient monastery, abbey, and church. We’ll continue to the traditional fishing village of Slano, walking along the coast to an oyster farm to sample the delicacies fresh from the sea while learning more about how they’re harvested. The Captain’s Dinner with live music will be hosted on the ship this evening.

    • Excursions Included: Entrance to the Mljet National Park / Oyster and mussels tasting
    • Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Captain's Dinner

    Day 7 Dubrovnik

    Dubrovnik Walls

    On our final full day, we’ll depart early for the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” Dubrovnik. Before our arrival into the harbor, enjoy a view of the walled Old City from the water followed by a guided walking tour of the historic center. There are many magnificent buildings that line the limestone-paved streets that date back to the days of the old Dubrovnik Republic. Your guide will provide more insight into their history, and you’ll have free time to explore afterward. This evening is ideal for celebrating your cruise with dinner in one of the rooftop restaurants, ideally with a sea and sunset view.

    • Excursions Included: Guided tour of Dubrovnik
    • Meals Included: Breakfast and Lunch

    Dubrovnik
