Journey from Zagreb to Opatija
Medieval Zagreb kickstarts your mesmerising Adriatic journey south to Dubrovnik. On arrival, you’ll be transferred to Opatija where your Local Host will give you a glimpse into what you can expect over the coming days. You’ll have some free time to get your own taste of why Opatija, with its ‘Riviera’ feel and colourful history, was a favourite getaway of the Habsburgs.
Hotel: Paris


Embark and Cruise to Rab Island
Prime your sea legs this morning as you transfer to Opatija port and board the MV Aquamarin to meet your onboard team. This afternoon, you’ll set sail for the “island of love”. A guided tour of Rab will reveal its highlights, including its ancient walls, church bell towers and the monastery at the 16th-century Church of St. Justine. Sample Rab cake and enjoy a presentation of how this local delight is made. Rub shoulders with local artists who add a splash of colour to the streets of the town, then retire to the comfort of your cruise ship for the night.

Off to Stunning Zadar
Cruise to Zadar, Croatia’s oldest university town. From the 1st-century Roman forum to the 9th-century St. Donat Church, there’s history around every turn. After exploring the wealth of museums, churches and palaces, you’ll make your way to Zadar’s Riva to see (and hear) the mesmerising Sea Organ, comprising several stairs that descend into the sea.

Admire the Krka Waterfalls and on to Šibenik
Arrive in Skradin and travel to Bibich winery where you’ll get to sample some of the indigenous varietals produced by this boutique family-owned winery. Next up is a visit to Krka Waterfalls National Park, where you’ll visit “Skradinski Buk”, a spectacular vantage point from which to view 17 separate falls cascading 45 metres down to the pools below. Refreshed after taking a dip in the crystal waters, you’ll have the afternoon off to explore the cultural monuments and waterfront attractions of Šibenik.
Meal: Breakfast,Dinner


Continue to Historic Split
Your cruise continues towards the capital of Dalmatia and home to the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s palace. Explore Split’s buzzing historical town centre on foot with your ‘Local Specialist’ who’ll share all the iconic and unexpected highlights with you as you wind your way towards Split Market.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch


Onwards to Picturesque Metković
Follow in the footsteps of ancient Illyrian, Greek and Roman sailors as you cruise to Metković. It’s here, on the banks of the Neretva, that you’ll find one of the last remaining wetland deltas in Europe. A barge ride into the groves provides the perfect opportunity to view the local flora, fauna and birdlife. Next, visit the Narona Archaeological Museum, where you’ll see the remains of the Augusteum Roman temple, at the heart of what was once a major Roman stronghold. Tonight, you’ll be hosted by the Captain for dinner.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner


A Day Exploring Korčula
Set sail for Korčula, most famously the birthplace of Marco Polo. You’ll discover why the locals call it “The Black Island” and see how its towering walls have shielded its capital for centuries. After a tour through the Old Town’s narrow streets, you’ll have time to soak up the local atmosphere in one of the many konobas, restaurants or cocktail bars.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch


Cruise to Dubrovnik
Approaching Dubrovnik from the sea is a sight to behold. As you sail past its imposing walls, you’ll get a glimpse of why George Bernard Shaw described the city as “heaven on earth”. Lunch is served on deck as the ship moors in Gruz harbour. You’ll be treated to a guided tour of the Old Town before spending the rest of the afternoon exploring on your own. You could choose to walk the ramparts, ascend Srđ mountain by cable car for spectacular views, or take a step back in time in its labyrinthine lanes.
