Dubrovnik Deluxe Discovery Cruise

Explore Dubrovnik and stunning Dalmatian islands and coastline. Spend your mornings admiring the spectacular scenery, enjoying swimming in crystal clear Adriatic sea and your afternoons and evenings exploring old historical towns or having fun till morning hours.

Embarking in Dubrovnik we head to Mljet National Park, with the beautiful St Mary's Monastery on an island in the lake on an island. You can visit the monastery or explore the paths of the park by foot or bike. Then we head to Korcula, birth place of the great explorer Marco Polo and a mini Dubrovnik in its own right. We continue to Split, Croatia’s second largest city where Roman Emperor Diocletian built himself a retirement palace, now under UNESCO protection, that still dominates life in central Split to this day. A warren of ruins, cafes, museums, hotels, restaurants, shops and houses. Split waterfront is a happening place and there’s a buzz along the beautiful wide promenade. A local guide meets us on arrival for a walk through the heart of the bustling old town and the market.

We spend the last few days cruising the islands: The jetset town of Hvar, the beautiful small fishing port of Bol, the extraordinary nearby beach of Zlatni Rat (see image at top of page), and we take an excursion to explore the Pelješac peninsula before returning to Dubrovnik.

These are very relaxed cruises, generally cruising for around 4 hours in the morning with a swim stop on the way. The afternoons are free to explore or you can join a guided walk of the towns and ports we moor in, and in the evening and in the evening you can try some of the many fantastic restaurants that abound here.

Dubrovnik Deluxe Discovery Cruise itinerary:

show reverse itinerary
Day 1 DUBROVNIK

Transfer from Dubrovnik airport to Dubrovnik Gruž harbor for check in from 14.00h onwards. After settling in, transfer to city gates for a guided tour of the city. The special charm of this ancient town are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic. Many of the monuments belong to the modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of Gothic style. Take the cable car from the Old Town to Srđ mountain to enjoy scenic views of the mighty ramparts and of the Elaphiti Islands. After the tour, return transfer to the ship for a welcome meet & greet cocktail reception on board. Overnight in Dubrovnik.

Day 2 DUBROVNIK – MLJET / KORČULA B, L

Next morning, we cruise a little further north to the Island of Mljet. The legend says Greek hero Odysseus spent years on this island when he was captured by the nymph Calypso. Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park and enjoy the boat ride to St Mary Isle to visit an ancient Benedictine monastery, an old abbey and a Church dating back to the 12th Century. Alternatively, you can rent kayaks, bicycles, scooters or convertible cars to roam around the National Park on your own, but beware of the nymphs! Next stop is Korčula, an island best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, the famous explorer. Covering much of the island are the distinct, almost black pine forests so Korčula is also known as „the Black Island“. Korčula Town is like a mini Dubrovnik, as it also encased by medieval stone ramparts and towers.

Day 3 KORČULA - SPLIT B, L

We continue south to Split, Croatia’s second largest city where Roman Emperor Diocletian built himself a retirement palace now under UNESCO protection. Split waterfront is a happening place and there’s a buzz along the beautiful wide promenade. A local guide meets us on arrival for a walk through the heart of the bustling old town and the market. Overnight in Split.

Day 4 SPLIT - BOL B, L, T, CD

Our next stop will be the Island of Brač and picturesque town of Bol.

Day 7 PELJEŠAC - DUBROVNIK B, L

There is no better way to catch first sight of famous Dubrovnik than from the sea as we return to our final destination – Dubrovnik. It is one of the few walled cities on the sea in the world.

Lunch is served on deck before we head for Gruz harbour to dock.
