1 Arrive Zagreb, Opatija, Embark Ship
Upon arrival into Zagreb, be met at the airport and transfer to your ship in Opatija. Here, enjoy a Welcome Dinner before overnighting in this magnificent town. Stay Eight Nights: MV Queen Eleganza (D)
2 Krk, Rab
Sail to the beautiful island of Krk, where weather permitting, your ship will drop its anchor so you can enjoy a swim straight off the deck. Later arrive in Rab and meander through the narrow old alleys of the picturesque Old Town. Tonight, perhaps sample the local cuisine and dine ashore. (B/L/D)
3 Pag, Zadar
Continue to Pag, where you will have another chance to swim straight off your deck. Later, continue to Zadar and enjoy a guided walk of its well-preserved Old Town, Roman Columns, Romanesque churches and Renaissance palaces. Your ship will dock here overnight, where perhaps you may like to try one of the local restaurants for dinner. (B/L/D)
4 Kornati Islands, Radošić, Šibenik
Spend the day amongst the 140 islands that make up the Kornati archipelago, teeming with natural beauty, coves and clear blue waters. Cruise around the islands then perhaps enjoy a swim. Enjoy your Signature Experience this afternoon, then return to your ship in Šibenik. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • This afternoon, dock in Šibenik, and travel to the traditional village of Radošić, where you will enjoy an authentic experience. Sample some of the local brandy and home-made doughnuts on arrival, then watch on as the locals perform a dance that has been passed through generations since the 18th-century. Afterwards, enjoy a cooking demonstration of how the villagers make their bread, before a tour of the village and dinner.
5 Krka National Park, Hvar
This morning, visit the dramatic waterfalls in Krka where you will see Skradinski Buk, a large natural pool with high waterfalls at one end and cascades at the other. Take a walk along wooden jetties and bridges to admire the falls, and the unique flora and fauna. Return to the ship for lunch and spend the afternoon cruising to Hvar where you will enjoy dinner on board as your ship moors overnight. (B/L/D)
6 Hvar, Vis
From your berth in Stari Grad, take a short coach ride across the island to the stunning Old Town of Hvar for a guided walk. Commence in the iconic main square, which is the largest piazza in Dalmatia, then see the cathedral and the Franciscan Monastery. Continue to the Benedictine Nunnery, where we hear about the aloe lace still produced today by the nuns. After some free time, return to the ship and enjoy lunch on board as you set sail for your next destination, Vis. Arrive at this small island this evening and perhaps dine ashore. (B/L/D)
7 Vis, Biševo, Korčula
One of the main Croatian Islands from the coast, Vis was used as a military base for the Yugoslav army and only opened up to tourism in 1989. This isolation and lack of development is the island's main attraction, as it is filled with natural beauty. Enjoy your Signature Experience then return to the ship and sail to Korčula this afternoon, where you will stroll the medieval streets flanked with palaces. Dine on board or ashore tonight. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Head to the island to the port of Komiža, where you will board a local boat to the neighbouring island of Biševo. Here, visit its spectacular Blue Grotto, a coastal cave whose waters shine an amazing hue of blue when the sun's rays pass through an underwater opening, while the rocks beneath gleam a silver shimmer.
8 Mljet, Dubrovnik
Sail to Mljet, one of the few Dalmatian islands that was never ruled by Venice. During a tour to its national park, discover its pristine turquoise lakes. Continue sailing and perhaps stop for a swim on the island of Jakljan, before arriving in Dubrovnik later this afternoon for a guided tour of this walled city. Tonight, enjoy a Farewell Dinner. (B/L/D)
