Through the carved facades of buildings and baroque churches, we see many green spaces and terraces of cafes where the locals like to gather. Early afternoon departure to Bled, small town in the Julian Alps which could be a setting for a classic fairy tale: immense natural beauty with mountains and forest surrounding an emerald glacial lake, an island in the middle of the lake with a church steeple and its wishing bell, a cliff top castle with picturesque views, and a well-known sweet treat. Bled, together with its surroundings, ranks among the most beautiful alpine resorts and is renowned also for its mild, healing climate and thermal lake water. Dinner and overnight in Bled.

Departure to Split. This afternoon our guide will uncover for you the secrets of the UNESCO protected Diocletian’s Palace and its cellars. This Roman emperor spared no expense for the construction of a sumptuous residence, importing best quality marble, sphinx and columns. The original palace was modified by its new inhabitants during the Middle Ages, but making it even more beautiful and what it is today: the city’s living heart. Its narrow streets hide passageways and courtyards, some deserted and eerie, others lively and animated by the music from bars and cafes, or by the everyday life of its residents.

Island of Mljet on its western side houses National Park Mljet, known for its immense beauty and its two turquoise salty lakes surrounded by thick forest. Upon arrival you will have plenty of free time to explore the park individually, for example, by renting bikes and cycling or jogging on the numerous paths around the lakes or in the forests. If you feel like just relaxing you can hop onto the small boat that will take you to a tiny island on one of the lakes, where you can discover a monastery and a church of St. Mary’s built in the 12th century and enjoy a cup of coffee with the view and the quiet.

Jacqui
From the moment we boarded

Review for: New Star Cruise Split - Dubrovnik

From the moment we boarded this beautiful ship we were overwhelmed with awe. The people we met will stay in our memory forever. Every member of the crew were extremely hard working and did everything to make life easier and comfortable. They cooked, cleaned, organised excursions and transfers. The young and effervescent tour director, Etna was extremely helpful and informative, She even sang one evening with a traditional Croatian band that came on board. Every day was almost perfect with some beautiful swim stops at stunning locations and stopping at beautiful ports along the way. The ship was very beautiful and luxurious and the cabins vey spacious. The captain took great pride in his ship. We even saw a crew member cleaning the hull with a spray bottle and cloth while treading water at a swim stop. The meals were great and everywhere was clean. I highly recommend this company!

What a treat

Review for: Adriatic Princess Split-Split M/S Adriatic Princess

What a treat writing this with only a day to go that in itself is sad. The boat is new as at April 2019 with beautiful inclusions. We were lucky to have the suite at the front which would leave many hotel rooms to shame. The crew are marvellous the captain and his wife and son are also on board. If your lucky you may get a cuddle with snoopy the puppy sssshhh don’t tell anyone. The chef five star and kilos added to your body just eat! Service and room cleaning excellent. The cruise along the Dalmatian coast has been a highlight that won’t be forgotten. To the captain, crew and Blansha our cruise director thank you.
