This 8-day Deluxe Category Croatia cruise takes you to explore the sparkling Adriatic on a round trip from the historic walled city of Dubrovnik.

Take a walking tour of Dubrovnik, exploring the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic,’ including the Rector’s Palace, and the Franciscan Monastery’s Pharmacy, before lunch aboard your boat. Then dock at Mljet Island, home to diverse forests and lakes, plus a range of bird life. Overnight at Korcula, the alleged birthplace of Marco Polo. A walking tour in the morning takes you to St Mark’s Cathedral and other sights before sailing on to the island of Brac. Explore the picturesque town of Pucisca overnight.

Sail in the shadow of ancient pirates to the town of Omis, before boarding a river vessel to explore the protected Cetina River Canyon. Then go on to Split, which stands alongside Dubrovnik as one of the most beloved cities in the region. Your guided tour takes in the old port, the seafront promenade, and Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace. Your evening is your own to find your perfect corner of its cobbled streets.

Stop in at Bol on the island of Brac, swimming at the golden pebble beach before heading to Hvar. This is Croatia at its most luxurious and arguably exclusive. Yet Hvar also includes sights such as the oldest public theatre in Europe, a Franciscan Monastery and more. Then cruise to Trstenik, a small fishing village on the Peljesac peninsula, for a swim and captain’s dinner with live entertainment onboard.

Sail past the cliffs of Mljet Island with time for a swim before one last night in Dubrovnik, where you can explore any sights you may have missed.
