Croatian Coastal Voyage is a dream like cruising experience on the sun drenched Adriatic, weaving along Dalmatia's beautifully unspoilt coast line, which is also known as the "coast of a thousand islands". Starting from Split this sailing trip will take you around the islands of Korcula, Brac, Hvar and Mljet, visiting the city of Dubrovnik and Split.
Split Cruise itinerary: m/s "PRESTIGE" or m/s "PRESIDENT"
Day 1 Saturday: Split
Arrive from the UK and embark from 2pm onwards. There is time at leisure to settle in before an evening welcome reception - this is an opportunity to meet your Cruise Manger, the Captain and the crew of your cruising vessel. Instructions are given and safety measures explained.
Day 2 Sunday: Split - Bol (Brac) – Hvar
Depart Split in the morning heading towards the island of Brac for a swim at Croatia's most famous beach – the Golden Horn. Enjoy nearly 1km of golden pebble beach that uniquely changes its shape and position depending on the winds. Return to our ship for lunch before heading for Hvar, justly reputed as the finest island on the Adriatic and a magnet for celebrities from across the world. Walking tour of Hvar town reveals Europe's first public theatre (older than the Globe!) and many other historical sites. Evening at leisure and optional evening meal at one of many local restaurants.
Day 3 Monday: Hvar – Korcula
We set sail for the island of Korcula with a swimming & sunbathing stop at a secluded bay with lunch onboard. Upon arrival to Korcula, the birthplace of the merchant-explorer Marco Polo, we spend the afternoon exploring narrow alleyways and streets of the Old Town on foot and visit the majestic Baroque Cathedral of St. Mark. Evening is spent at leisure with optional evening meal at a restaurant of your choice.
Day 4 Tuesday: Korcula – Dubrovnik
After an easy moning cruise we arrive to Dubrovnik - the “Pearl of the Adriatic” and a UNESCO-protected World Heritage site. Walking tour of the walled medieval city will include a visit to Rector’s Palace and Franciscan Monastery’s Pharmacy, before returning to the ship for onboard lunch. Rest of the day is spent at leisure or exploring Dubrovnik independently with an optional evening meal at one of many local restaurants.
Day 5 Wednesday: Dubrovnik – Mljet
Departure from Dubrovnik offers a final glimpse of the picturesque Elafiti Islands group, followed by ample time for a swimming & sunbathing stop, as we continue to our next port of call, the island of Mljet. Here, the National Park encompasses unusually varied types of woodlands, rare bird species and two deep lakes, so it is no wonder Odysseus stayed here for a while. Evening at leisure with optional evening meal at a restaurant of your choice.
Day 6 Thursday: Mljet - Brac (Pucisca)
We spend the morning combining sailing with a relaxing break for soaking up the sun and jumping off the ship to cool down in crystal blue waters. In the afternoon we arrive to Pucisca, a charming and picturesque resort on the island of Brac. Tonight, we enjoy Captain’s Dinner with live entertainment on board.
Day 7 Friday: Pucisca (Brac) - Omis - Split
We continue to the ancient town of Omis. Medieval fortresses here are silent reminders of the power and might of infamous pirates who once made Omis their home. Board a smaller boat and cruise deep into Cetina River Canyon, a protected nature site of outstanding beauty. Local speciality snack is served at the old mills before returning to the ship and cruising to Split. Upon arrival, we join the guided tour of Split's port, the seafront promenade and many UNESCO World Heritage sites, Roman's Diocletian‘s Palace. Evening is spent at leisure with an optional evening meal at one of many local restaurants.
