Day 1 - Split - Trogir
Split, a town on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, is known for its beaches and the fortresslike complex at its center, Diocletian's Palace, erected by the Roman emperor in the 4th century. Once home to thousands, its sprawling remains include more than 200 buildings. Within its white stone walls and under its courtyards and galleries are shops, bars, cafes, cathedrals, hotels and several houses. Check-in is from 10.30am to 12.00pm (midday). Please note your cabin may not be ready until 12:30pm. Your ship will depart the harbour at 1pm sharp. Enjoy a 3-course lunch onboard as we depart Split Harbour at 13:00 and commence sailing towards to our first destination- the seaside town of Trogir. This tiny, medieval town is packed with stunning architecture, impressive fortifications, and cosmopolitan restaurants. Trogir is the perfect place to soak up an authentic Croatian experience, so why not spend your afternoon strolling through the fascinating Old Town, swimming or relaxing in this beautiful area. Enjoy the evening experiencing a local restaurant or waterside cafe.
Day 2 - Sibenik
This morning we’ll leave Trogir behind and sail toward the beautiful city of Sibenik, the oldest native Croatian city on the Adriatic. We will stop off at a secluded bay for a swim, where you’ll catch a glimpse of the beautiful island of Zlarin as we make our way to this evening’s destination. We’ll moor in the protected natural harbour of Sibenik, giving you every opportunity to discover the city at your leisure, indulge in coffee and cake on the waterfront riva, or explore the abundance of medieval forts, cathedrals and churches located a stone’s throw away from the ship.
Day 3 - Zadar
Enjoy breakfast overlooking the stunning Adriatic Sea as we cruise toward the fascinating city of Zadar; historically known as the center of Dalmatia. This notable town has stood the test of time and is filled with beautiful Roman architecture and medieval churches, yet blended with cosmopolitan cafes and quality waterfront restaurants. Spend the afternoon along the waterfront of Zadar, taking in the city’s two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and Sun Salutation, which need to be seen and heard to be believed! Sip on champagne as you marvel at Zadar’s most famous attraction; the stunning sunset out over the sea, before indulging in delicious local cuisine.
Day 4 - Vodice
Relax as we set sail and head toward the coastal town of Vodice and enjoy a 3-course lunch at your Captain's favourite secluded bay along the way. Spend the afternoon swimming at one of the beautiful pebbled beaches, relaxing onboard, or take part in an optional activity to the Krka Waterfalls National Park, one of the most beautiful spots in all of Croatia.
Day 5 - Vis
Early this morning and subject to weather conditions (which are normally excellent), we will make our way across to the island of Vis, one of the most outer-lying islands on the Dalmatian coast. Vis has been used over the centuries as a strategic military port and saw action by the Allied military through WWII against Italy and Germany. It has only recently opened to commercial tourism and the island still retains a lot of charm. If by chance the weather and wind isn't suitable to visit Vis, an alternative stop will be made on the itinerary. The captain reserves the right to amend the itinerary, as his number one priority is always safety.
Day 6 - Hvar
Enjoy breakfast onboard overlooking the stunning Adriatic as we cruise towards Hvar island. Relax in the Croatian sunshine or take a dip in the refreshing Adriatic at our mid-morning swim stop before lunch is served onboard. After lunch, we continue on to Hvar, the ‘French Riviera’ of the Adriatic. Feel the part sipping champagne and docking alongside other super yachts in Hvar Town. Although renowned for it's celebrity spotting, Hvar still remains authentic to its roots, with its cobbled streets, historic architecture and 7th century fort ruins overlooking the town. You can also visit the Renaissance Cathedral with its original tower, as well as the oldest community theatre in Europe, which dates back to 1612. Please note: Note: The docking time in Hvar can be early evening in peak season due to port authority restrictions. However, if guests would like to arrive earlier, water taxi transfers will be arranged.
Day 7 - Split
Embrace your last morning cruising the Dalmatian coast as we make our way back to Split. Enjoy your final swim stop in a secluded bay just outside of Split, before taking in this spectacular city as we cruise into Split harbour in the afternoon, The UNESCO World Heritage city of Split bases the city centre in and around the stunning Diocletian's Palace, a Roman emperor's' retirement palace from 295-305 AD. This beautiful palace consists of 220 buildings within its boundaries, is home to 3,000 people and Split is now the second largest city in Croatia. Stroll through the palace basement filled with market stalls and historical architecture or have a coffee on the waterfront Riva.
Day 8 - Split
Enjoy an early breakfast after which it is time to say goodbye to the crew and your fellow guests! Disembark from the ship by 9am. NOTE: It is possible for you to leave as early as needed on Sunday morning to catch flights as the ship will be in port by Saturday night

Croatia Luxury Cruise North: from Split to Split

Great holiday

We had a lovely week on the Esperanza . The guests all got in great and Ivana was a wonderful hostess.

Positives : Guests and the amazing Dalmnation coast

Negatives: Agritourism visit was nothing special and wine was borderline awful. Most guests felt this was something of a wasted evening in the middle of nowhere.

Food on the boat in particular fruit at breakfast and salads at lunch and dinner could have been more plentiful .

But all in all ... Great !

Thank you Conor I
