Sale EndsOct 31, 2024
Day 1: Arrive Zagreb, Opatija, Embark Yacht
On arrival into Zagreb, be met at the airport and transferred to your yacht in Opatija. Tonight, come together to share a welcome dinner, which provides the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow travellers and cruise director. You will dock overnight in this magnificent town.
Day 2: Krk, Rab
We depart from Opatija, heading to the beautiful island of Krk, where weather permitting, your yacht will drop its anchor so you can enjoy a swim right off the deck at the stern of the Lady Eleganza. Later, sail to the island of Rab and spend some time meandering through the narrow old alleys of the historic and picturesque Old Town.
Day 3: Pag, Zadar
Arrive in Pag, a distinctively rocky island where you will have the chance to take a refreshing dip straight off your deck. Later, continue to Zadar and enjoy a guided walk through its well-preserved Old Town, which sits on a peninsula and is entirely pedestrianised. The streets are filled with Roman ruins, Romanesque churches and Renaissance palaces, but there is also a striking modernity to Zadar, with its Sea Organ, which plays a tune according to the rhythm of the waves, and its Sun Salutation light show. Your yacht will dock here overnight, so perhaps you may like to try one of the local taverns.
Day 4: Kornati Islands, Sibenik, Radosic
Cruise among the 140 islands that make up the Kornati archipelago, a cluster of islands teeming with natural beauty, coves and clear blue waters. During your time here, you might enjoy a swim from the yacht's rear deck.
Day 5: Sibenik, Krka National Park, Vis
Today, head to beautiful Krka National Park. Here, explore the dramatic waterfalls, the most spectacular of which is 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, as well as the unique flora and fauna. Return to the yacht and continue cruising to the island of Vis, one of the main Croatian Islands that 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 dinner on board as your ship moors overnight. You also have the option to experience life like the locals and visit a tavern.
Day 6: Bisevo, Hvar
Board a local boat to the neighbouring island of Bisevo. Here, visit its Blue Grotto, a coastal cave whose waters shine a striking blue colour when the sun's rays pass through an underwater opening, while the rocks beneath shimmer in silver. Return to your yacht and sail to Hvar, where you’ll embark on a guided walking discovery of Hvar’s stunning Old Town. 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.
Day 7: Hvar, Korcula
Sail to Korcula, where you'll stroll along the medieval streets flanked with palaces. It is believed the great explorer Marco Polo was born in this town. Tonight, dine on board, then perhaps go ashore for an evening stroll or maybe check out the local nightlife.
Day 8: Korcula, Dubrovnik
This morning, stop for a swim before continuing to your last port of call, Dubrovnik. Here, embark on a guided discovery of this spectacular walled city, known as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic'. Historically famous, Dubrovnik has gained even more attention since being featured as King's Landing in the television series Game of Thrones. Tonight, come together to share a farewell dinner.
Day 9: Disembark Yacht, Depart Dubrovnik
Be transferred to the airport.
