South Adriatic Cruise Itinerary - MS Agape Rose or MS Adriatic Star

Summer 2020 Departures

The cruise departs every Saturday between 18 April - 10 October 2020 with exception of 25 April & 02 May.

Day 1 Saturday: Omis

Embarkation in Omis from 2pm. Meanwhile you will be served a welcome drink with snack and offered a chance to meet your Cruise Director, the Captain and the crew. Captain's instructions are given and safety measures explained. Dinner on board and overnight in Omis.

Day 2 Sunday: Omis - Pucisca - Split

Waking up to the dramatic backdrop of the charming town of Omis will probably entice you to join the optional tour, which will take you up the canyon of the Cetina river. Later, you will be able to compare this bit of hinterland with the lovely island of Brac, the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still-operating stone masonry school in Pucisca brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back to the mainland, stop in Split. Whether you explore on your own or join the optional walking tour, don’t miss the Palace of the Emperor Diocletian. Originally planned as his retirement estate, today it is the lively city centre of Croatia’s second largest city. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living here. Overnight in Split.

Day 3 Monday: Split - Sibenik

When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, the park is definitely worth a visit. After returning to the seaside, visit Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland.A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir is protected by UNESCO, just like the Cathedral of St. James at your next stop, Sibenik. Rolling down the hill slopes towered by the immense fortress of St. Michael, Sibenik is a sight to behold from every perspective. An optional walking tour will introduce you to Sibenik’s great claim to Renaissance – both the one centuries ago, when the town’s Cathedral of St. James, and the present day, when the town known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Experience its stone alleys and great cuisine in an evening on your own. Overnight in Sibenik.

Day 4 Tuesday: Sibenik - Vis

Enjoy the stunning waterfront of Sibenik as you navigate down the narrow channel of St. Anthony out to the open seas. Today you will sail to the island of Vis. You’ll recognize its main settlement, the town of Vis, by numerous masts crisscrossed over the image of its seafront facades.Comprised of the newer, 19th-century harbour area, and the historic, medieval corner, the past of this spans over two millennia, hence the colourful array of heritage in this small settlement ranges from a Greek cemetery and Roman baths to an English fort and Yugoslav militia tributes. Join an optional guided tour to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis and getting some ideas on what to do that very evening. Overnight in Vis.

Day 5 Wednesday: Vis - Hvar - Korcula

Enjoy a breakfast with a view and a morning sail to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1200 Croatian islands. This jet-set favourite is also the island with the most UNESCO-listed heritage in the entire world, so consider joining the optional guided tour. Then, hop over to Korcula Island, one of the largest islands in the Adriatic, known for its signature lush dark forests. You’ll know Korcula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get to see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world renowned traveller Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own or on an optional walking tour. Captain's dinner and overnight in Korcula.

Day 6 Thursday: Korcula - Mljet - Slano

Continue to another green island, this time Mljet. The national park on the island is the home of two salt lakes connected to the sea via a narrow canal. Nature lovers will get a thrill from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking to the small inlet in the centre of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, join our optional excursion – but whatever you do, do not pass on setting foot on Mljet. Enjoy a lunch on board followed by a refreshing dip before setting sail back to the mainland and the small settlement of Slano. In the vicinity of Slano, the petite town of Ston claims its fame for many things gourmand: potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels. The optional tour the Taste of Dalmatia highlights all these treasures, but you can also just relax in Slano, where you are docked overnight.

Day 7 Friday: Slano - Dubrovnik

After breakfast set sail to Croatia’s southernmost gem and the renowned hotspot, Dubrovnik. Glimpse at its beauty sailing beneath the mighty City Walls, much in the same way its enemies and allies used to, before dropping anchor in the port of Gruz. The optional walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town takes you by the world-famous landmarks, strolling down the same streets that the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood walked. Whatever you might consider to be the town’s main drawcard, Dubrovnik’s city walls and its courteous spirit will swiftly transport you back in time to when this was an independent republic which successfully rivaled the Venetian Republic. Enjoy an evening of romance, glitz and glam, as you will be staying in Dubrovnik overnight.

Day 8 Saturday: Dubrovnik

Disembarkation after breakfast by 9am. Transfer to Dubrovnik Airport for homeward journey or hotel of your choice in the Dubrovnik Riviera for a second week.
