Itinerary

M/S Swallow vessel will be docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbor where you can board during the entire day. At 7.00 pm we will have a welcome meeting where Captain will introduce you to the crew and your fellow passengers. Welcome dinner will be served at 7.30 pm. Embarkation is possible throughout the whole day. Passengers arriving in the morning will not be able to enter their cabins before 1.00 pm but can leave luggage on board. Captain will wait for the passengers arriving late at night. All the late arriving guests will be provided with a dinner. Overnight on board in Dubrovnik.

Meals Included:
Dinner

After breakfast our English-speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. We will visit the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour you will be left on your own to explore around, visit City Walls or take a scenic cable car to the top of Mount Srđ with its stunning 360° vista. On this day, we will not have lunch on board, so you can spend more time in Dubrovnik and see why this city was deservedly nicknamed “The Pearl of the Adriatic”. Return coach transfer is scheduled between 2 pm and 4 pm (time to be confirmed on the spot). Then we will sail out for the Island of Šipan where we’ll anchor in a peaceful fisherman`s village of Šipanska Luka or in Slano, located on the mainland. Slano is one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with a beautiful beach, dense pine forest and olive groves, a long cultural tradition, and numerous historical monuments. If we stay in Slano, for all who are interested we can organize optional excursion to Ston, fortified town famous for 5-kilometre-long walls, old saltwork and oysters/mussels farm. This night we will have dinner on board. Overnight in Šipanska Luka or Slano on the mainland.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Dinner

Our day starts with a morning departure towards Mljet National Park. When we arrive there, you will have just enough time to explore park, walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit the Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of National Park. Entrance fees to Mljet National Park are included. With lunch served on board, we will sail for the Island of Korčula, arriving there in the afternoon.  Town of Korčula is the island’s main settlement and is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the world’s most famous explorers of all times. Our English-speaking guide will take you for a tour of Korčula Town, through its narrow and cobbled streets and its rich history. You will have rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

In the morning we will cruise to the Island of Vis, with lunch on board and a swim stop en route. Arrival to Vis is scheduled for the afternoon. Compared to other Adriatic islands, Vis is rather unique. Being an important strategic military stronghold for centuries, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture, and traditional architecture. Enjoy afternoon, exploring the town of Vis, its picturesque stone streets, pristine beaches, and fine taverns. Overnight in Vis.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Today we will cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. However, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave which is something we shall not know before the time designated for our visit. In case we cannot enter Blue Cave due to such sea conditions, you will get a full ticket refund. After a swim stop and lunch we will continue cruising along many coves and bays, towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jetsetters. Upon our arrival to Hvar, a local English-speaking guide will walk you through this unique city, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture, and a way of life, along with few island’s peculiarities, such as the traditional farming of lavender. Afterwards, you will have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of numerous family-owned restaurants and taverns. Overnight in Hvar.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

In the morning we will cruise towards Bol, a place best known for its beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), which regularly hits the top lists of the most beautiful European beaches. Once we stop in Bol, you can enjoy simple pleasures such as taking a walk around this nice little Dalmatian town, perhaps having a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch we will continue cruising towards Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, arriving there during afternoon. This town – museum is literally packed with palaces, churches, monasteries, and towers. A professional English-speaking guide will take us for a city tour of Trogir. Afterwards, you will have some time on your own, free to explore. On this evening we will have Captain’s Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment. Overnight in Trogir.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

In the morning we will sail out for Split, our last port on this cruise, with a swim stop along the way. After lunch, our English-speaking guide will do an afternoon Split City tour, walking us through the world famous Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County. on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1979. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within the Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1979.

Loved our TOur

Review for: Egypt in Style

Sun Island Tours was very helpful and accessible whenever we had questions during the planning stage. The Cruise was wonderful, everything we had ever hoped for. We had a great time and met some wonderful people. The Greek Island package was great too! Sun Island choose the best hotels for us in Greece, and made sure that each hotel catered for us perfectly. In Santorini we wanted to stay at the beach, rather than the cliffside. All of our friends kept recommending the cliffside, for the caldera view. We spoke with Sun Island, and they ended up accepting our request for the beach, and choosing the perfect hotel with a view of the water. We were there for only two nights, so they organised a wonderful volcano trip with a sunset cruise on the first day, and we saw the sunset from Oia. The following night they recommended the perfect restaurant for us. The cruise in Croatia was wonderful. Very well organsied. Im glad we went for the deluve option which included touring in each destinations. The food was 5 star and sites were well beyond my dreams. What an amazing part of the world.

This cruise was exactly what I was after.

Review for: Sapphire Cruise Split - Dubrovnik

I recently embarked on a 7 night cruise on the MS Mama Marija (Sapphire Cruise) booked through Sun Island Tours. To say the least, this cruise was exactly what I was after. Exploring, relaxing, unpacking only once in 7 days was a dream after travelling through Europe for 5 weeks. The vessel itself was incredible, great crew, beyond amazing food which caused me to put on a few kgs. Most walking tours and excursions were included in the cost which was a bonus. I couldn't fault this cruise one bit. Thank you Sun Island Tours for your recommendation and expertise

What a fabulous holiday

Review for: Sapphire Cruise Split - Dubrovnik

What a fabulous holiday, couldn’t have been better, perhaps a few days longer. THANK YOU SO MUCH for arranging everything, it was just amazing!! The islands are so beautiful and steeped with so much history which the excellent walking tours brought to life. As for our ship, we couldn’t have had a better crew. Excellent food and well presented. The crew went above and beyond to ensure we got to do everything we wanted.
