DAY 1

Arrive Dubrovnik
Imposing stone walls encircle the Old Town of Croatia’s most recognisable city. On arrival in Dubrovnik, you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore ‘paradise on earth’ in the words of George Bernard Shaw. Your local host will meet you and provide suggestions on how to explore the city’s limestone streets and elegant courtyards lined with remnants of Dubrovnik’s Golden Age.

DAY 2

Embark 7-Day Cruise – Korčula
A leisurely start to your day could see you get your final fix of Dubrovnik. Then, transfer to the MV Aquamarin where you’ll meet your onboard team. Set sail for Korčula, most famously the birthplace of Marco Polo and reminiscent of Dubrovnik with its medieval squares, churches and palaces. You’ll discover why the locals call it ‘The Black Island’ and see how its towering walls have shielded its capital for centuries as it came under the rule of the Greeks, the Romans, the Venetians and even the British. 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

DAY 3

Korčula – 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

DAY 4

Metković – Split
Your cruise continues towards the capital of Dalmatia and the home to the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s palace. Explore Split’s buzzing historical town centre on foot with your ‘Local Specialist’ who will share all the iconic and unexpected highlights with you as you wind your way towards Split Market at the heart of Croatia’s second-largest city. Watch the animated vendors ply their fruits, fish and vegetables to locals visiting the market for their daily grocery run. You’ll be tempted to stay in Split forever, but the comfort of your ship beckons and you’ll return to it later this afternoon.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch

DAY 5

Split – Krka Waterfalls – 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 to the pools below. Refreshed after taking a dip in the crystal waters, you’ll have the afternoon to explore the cultural monuments and waterfront attractions of Šibenik, a historic city along the Dalmatian coast and the oldest native Croatian town on the shores of the Adriatic.
Meal: Breakfast,Dinner

DAY 6

Šibenik – 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.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch

Zadar – Rab Island
Today you’ll explore 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 before returning to your cruise ship.
Meal: Breakfast,Lunch

DAY 8

Rab Island – Opatija
Opatija was a favourite getaway of the Habsburgs and it will be for you too.
