Itinerary

Transfer from Split airport to Split harbour where the vessel will be docked. Check-in from 2pm. After settling, enjoy the guided tour of the city (not possible for late arrivals). A dynamic port city with a medieval Old Town grown around the 1,700-year-old Diocletian’s Palace, Split bustles with modern life amid its ancient Roman setting. Cafés, restaurants, and galleries cram the cobblestone alleyways, the waterfront and the Marjan peninsula, make Croatia’s second-largest city one of the Mediterranean’s most compelling. Return to the vessel, meet the crew, and enjoy cocktails and dinner onboard, the meet and greet party. Overnight in Split.

Meals Included:
Dinner

After breakfast, we set sail for the first island on the route – Hvar, an island covered in vibrant and
fragrant lavender fields and olive groves. The historic island town is home to 7th-century fortifications, a Venetian loggia, historic piazzas, and the oldest municipal theatre in Europe. Learn more about it on a guided city tour. Back on the vessel for lunch then cruise toward the island of Vis, once one of the main Greek colonies in the 4th century BC. As a Yugoslavian army base for a long period, until 1991, Vis was closed and left untouched by the development of tourism for many years. As a result, its culture and architecture are extremely well preserved. Take a walk, enjoy the views, and taste some local delicacies at many excellent restaurants and taverns along the promenade. Overnight in Vis.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

In the morning visit the famous Blue Cave on Biševo, a splendorous and unique geomorphological
natural wonder. A hypnotizing silver-blue light illuminates the space inside the cave when the
sunlight hits the surface of the ocean through a vault on its arched roof and reflects off the seabed (Entrance fee approx. 15 €, to be paid on the spot). The possibility of a cave visit will depend on weather conditions. A breakfast followed by a swim stop on the way to Primošten. Enjoy lunch on board as the cruise continues towards Primošten, a small, picturesque town situated between Šibenik and Trogir, in the central part of the Adriatic coast and surrounded by seven other islets, a wonderful sight and a beautiful place to explore. Late afternoon transfer inland for an authentic heritage dinner. Overnight in Primošten.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Early morning departure to the Kornati National Park, which consists of around 100 islands, islets, and reefs. In addition to this, the continental part includes ¼ of the surface of the park, while the rest belongs to the marine ecosystem. Enjoy the ruins of the ancient Illyrian fortress, Roman villas, old Christian church of St Mary and medieval fortresses and settlements. Some of the reefs are sometimes up to 100 m deep in the sea. Afterwards, the cruise continues towards Zadar, for centuries the capital of Dalmatia and the oldest university town in Croatia. Join a guided tour of the city. Zadar is well known for its rich historical heritage of world importance, visible at every step: the
Roman Forum from the 1st century, St Donat church from the 9th century – the most famous medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, mighty city walls with a bow and a representative city gate from the 16th century, the Museum of ancient glass, over 30 churches in the old town, many palaces and villas, as well as the famous, contemporary Sea Organs and “Greeting to the Sun” light installation. Overnight in the port of Zadar.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Wake early to admire this morning’s sunrise over the Adriatic as you enjoy a hearty breakfast. Today’s destination is the island of Lošinj, known as the “sunshine island” with an abundance of pines, wildflowers, and herbs. Losinj is one of the most popular islands on the northern Adriatic because of its hidden coves and cool Mediterranean vibe. On arrival to Mali Lošinj, visit the Museum of Apoxyomenos. The museum is dedicated to the ancient bronze statue of an athlete found in the sea near the island. Time at leisure to explore this fragrant island: walk up to the Lošinj Aromatic Garden or to the smaller town of Veli Lošinj, both easy to reach on foot. Overnight in the town of Mali Lošinj.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

While enjoying the breakfast on board, cruise north towards Brijuni, which consists of 14 islands and
islets, among which the biggest is Veliki Brijun. Except for its beautiful nature, the archipelago has numerous dinosaur footprints. Lunch on board, followed by the Brijuni National Park visit. Explore this oasis of magnificent harmony between man, animal, and plant life. Afternoon cruise towards Pula. Upon arrival, time at leisure to explore the city that has existed for three thousand years. Settled in the prehistoric era and valued for its strategic location, Pula has been occupied, destroyed, and rebuilt numerous times. The Arena in Pula is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers entirely preserved. In the evening, Captain’s dinner on board with live entertainment. Overnight in Pula.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today’s destination is Opatija, the Pearl of Adriatic. The elegant tourist destination lies at the foot of Učka mountain, with the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia. Upon arrival, an experienced guide will introduce the magnificent history of Opatija and show the most precious monuments during a guided walking tour, followed by the choco tasting. Evening at leisure to explore, take a stroll on the amazing seaside promenade and enjoy the excellent gastronomic offer in one of the many topquality restaurants in Opatija. Overnight in the port of Opatija.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Important things to note

All itineraries and cruise vessels are subject to change without notice.

Sailing is at the Captain’s discretion.

Due to the size of the ports, vessels may be lined up next to each other which may result in other passengers boarding your vessel to reach another vessel.

Guests have to follow ship rules (to be found in written form on the ship) especially with regards to not bringing drinks on board and in case of bad behaviour, the tour operator/captain reserves the right in asking clients to disembark.

Due to capacity, a sister vessel may be used which is of similar design and standard.

 

FAQ’s

In some trips we list multiple vessels in the same class. We do so, as we may use a different vessel depending on departure date, occupancy and availability. As always, these vessels are a guide only and subject to change. Where we need to use a different vessel than that which we list, we endeavour to use vessels with a similar class.

Thank you Sun Island Tours

Review for: Venice To Split

Thank you Sun Island Tours Just last week we returned from our 3 week holiday to Venice, Ljubliana (Slovenia) & Croatia. My husband has never really had the desire to travel to Europe and when I asked him if he wanted to go, he responded ‘not really, but you just tell me when & I will have my bag packed’. I was really worried what his thoughts were. Not only could I see that he was having a good time, he told me that it was a great family holiday. Having a background in the building industry, he was amazed with the buildings, the feature, textures and the construction of them. Still being a bit budget conscious, you recommended Hotel Malibran in Venice that was European 3 star. I wasn’t sure what that meant, but it was clean & comfortable. The breakfast was included and was enough to give us a great start to the day. We stayed approx. a 10 min walk from San Marco and I think it was a better location. Loved exploring the back alleys. Although we took up your recommendation of Ljubliana in Slovenia, this was the place I was concerned about. After now ticking this off my list I can only describe Ljubliana as a scene out a romantic move, stunning! Side note – I might have to revisit as we had a half pouring raining afternoon and I didn’t go on the funicular to the Castle. The half day tours to Lake Bled, Postojna cave & Predjama castle were perfect and just the right amount of time. City Hotel was close to the old town, great stay & yummy breakfast. From here we took the train to Zargreb (another experience that I would 100% recommend). Short stop in Zargreb before we went to Split via Plitvice Lakes. Plitvice is worth the visit. We booked a 7 night small boat cruise from Split to Dubrovnik. I loved every single port. The crew were great and the Cruise Director was kind enough to recommend some family friendly restaurants. A travel tip for your clients – they will do your washing on board and it is only approx. $30. A highlight for my daughter was the island of Vis and visiting the locations of were they filmed Mamma Mia 2. At the end of our trip we stayed 2 nights in Dubrovnik. Thank you for booking us into Hotel More! Spectacular in every way. Whilst there we enjoyed an afternoon at the cave bar watching the sunset for my daughter’s birthday. Probably the best day of my holiday. We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous family holiday that we have just had. Your staff looked after every detail and I’m looking forward to booking my next holiday with you.

I booked my last holiday

Review for: Wonders of Croatia and Slovenia

I booked my last holiday to Europe through Sun island tours and had them organise my itinerary in Slovenia and Croatia. We had excellent service in organising dates and quotes for flights and accommodation. We also had very clear and open lines of communication with Sun island tours throughout the trip. In Slovenia, we went on a day trip to Lake Bled and Postanja caves and had a fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. A+++, would recommend, and I have already booked my next holiday with Sun Island tours.

Hey Rebecca, we're so glad Slovenia is getting the attention it deseves. For such a small country it packs a punch in terms of food, culture, and incredible sightseeing. It's so green too, with over 30% of the country being national park. We hope you enjoy the next trip as much as the last. Regards, The Sun Island Team

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I

Review for: Venice To Opatija

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I went to the UK for work in December and decided to visit Slovenia and Croatia afterwards. I had previously used Sun Island Tours to arrange my Malta, Greece and Cyprus holiday, and so happily used them again. They are lovely to deal with, generous with their time and reliable. Their destination knowledge is exceptional – they recommended lovely hotels in the perfect locations, and the best day tours. I also appreciated that they listened to my requests for mid-range accommodation and did not push expensive hotels on me. I had an amazing, tailor-made holiday visiting the Christmas markets and gorgeous villages and cities of Slovenia and Croatia. Thank you Sun Island Tours yet again for a wonderful holiday!

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Hi Britt, Thank you for your kind review. We are working hard to establish some of the lesser known destinations that you’ve already visited (like Cyprus and Slovenia), and we particularly feel like Slovenia is totally underappreciated. For such a tiny country, it has so much to offer, including some of the nicest and most welcoming people in all of Europe. We look forward to helping create your 3rd trip with us in the future, and thank you again for your time. Kind regards, Sun Island Tours Management
