Itinerary

Embarkation commences from 11am. Must be onboard before 12.30pm. Departure from Split, followed by lunch onboard and a swimming stop in a nice secluded bay en route. In the afternoon, cruise to Pučišća on the northern side of Brač, a typical Mediterranean small town at the bottom of a deep bay, famous for the white stone of Brač, used for building the Liverpool Cathedral, the White House in Washington, and other famous buildings. There is a chance to visit a stone-masonry workshop, one of the few such workshops still operating in Europe.  Enjoy the domestic food, wine, and famous olive oil. Overnight in the port of Pučišća.

Meals Included:
Lunch

Early morning departure toward Korčula, the birthplace of Marco Polo. Swim stop en route to enjoy a morning swim in the crystal blue sea. Lunch will be served either on the tip of the Pelješac peninsula (near Lovište) or in the quiet bay of Kneža on the Korčula island. Arrive in the afternoon, followed by a guided sightseeing tour of the exceptional Korčula town (included on Premium and Premium Superior). According to legend, Korčula was founded by the Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century B.C. This beautiful Dalmatian island has more legends and tales than any other place. Impressive monuments too. In the evening, we recommend visiting one of the numerous local taverns or enjoy the stunning views across to the mainland from the numerous cafes and bars.  Overnight in Korčula.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Before leaving Korčula, why not take a walk by the marina or through the nearby open market to shop for some souvenirs and other local specialties. The cruise continues towards Lastovo, the farthest inhabited island in Dalmatia and which Romans called the imperial island. Dock in the port of Ubli. From there, the local bus or taxi drives to Lastovo village for a visit to the local winery and tasting some indigenous wine sorts (optional). The island is surrounded by many smaller islands, with secluded bays and coves perfect for snorkeling. The town is also known for the number of small churches and unusually shaped chimneys, unique to Lastovo. Overnight on anchor in the bay.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (dinner included for Premium/Premium Superior category only)

Early morning departure towards Vis Island, which was “off-limits” to tourists for many years. Because of its unique geographical position, it was a strategic harbour for the Yugoslav navy and in this period of isolation Vis has retained a rather special charm reflecting the “‘Mediterranean as it once was” making it really interesting to see. Near Vis, there is a tiny Ravnik island, where the Green Cave is situated. It was named after the unusual greenish light that reflects in the sea from the hole on top of the cave. A short swim stop depending on the weather conditions, and then set sail further to the town of Vis for overnight. The town of Vis is on the northern side of the island and was developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia, formed by the Greeks in the 4th century B.C.  Visit the remains of the Roman Baths, City Museum, or take a walk enjoying the view of the beautiful Villa Rustica situated along the coast. Overnight in Vis.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Early in the morning, cruise toward the little island Biševo, to visit the Blue Cave, a magnificent natural phenomenon. As sometimes weather conditions can be very unpredictable, the cave might be closed for visits due to wind and/or high tide – the crew will inform you in time. After the Blue Cave, the cruise resumes towards Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. Records confirm that Hvar is the sunniest island in the Adriatic. Free afternoon to explore this unique town and its famous horseshoe-shaped bay. The famous Stari Grad Field (a plain) is the oldest in Croatia and the best-preserved example of the ancient Greek system of agriculture. Both the old town and this plain are part of the world heritage protected by UNESCO. Overnight in one of the ports of Stari Grad, main or ferry port (2 km away), depending on availability in port. Optional guided tour of Stari Grad (included on Premium Superior).

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

After breakfast, cruise toward the beautiful Brač island and the famous town of Bol which has one of the most unusual, and most photographed beaches in Dalmatia. Swim stop at Zlatni Rat, the Golden Horn (or cape) a shingle bar or spit that shifts from side to side, changing shape according to the change in direction of the wind and waves. Bol is a typical fishermen’s town. It became a popular tourist destination but kept its charm. Take a walk on the seaside promenade or cycle along the promenade. Hike or rent a scooter to visit Vidova Gora (at 778m, the highest peak on all Adriatic islands) for a spectacular view of Bol and beyond including the island of Hvar or visit the semi-abandoned village of Murvica. Find a nice tavern or restaurant and taste excellent fresh fish, local wines, and other delicacies of this unique island. Overnight in Bol.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Enjoy the best of the last day relaxing and swimming in various quiet bays on the island of Brač before arriving in Split in the afternoon. Split is Croatia’s second-largest city, a busy university and maritime centre, and the capital of the Dalmatia region. The historical complex of Split with the Palace of Diocletian is under UNESCO protection, and its historical and cultural monuments are wondrous both to local inhabitants and to the many visitors who fall in love with this 1.000-plus-year-old beauty. There’s the possibility of joining a sightseeing tour of the old town (included on Premium Superior) including Diocletian’s palace which the Roman emperor had built as his retirement home. Overnight on board in Split.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Early breakfast after which it is time to say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends! End of our services at Split port.

MV Rhapsody

Review for: Croatian Coast Split - Dubrovnik (One Way) Cruise

We have just returned from the most amazing week aboard the MV Rhapsody. Admittedly a brand new boat, but immaculately presented throughout. Captain Frane and his crew were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The high-spec cabins were spacious and were cleaned/beds made daily, bedding and towels changed during the week. The food was very good and always beautifully presented- buffet breakfast with eggs/bacon/sausages freshly cooked on request, 3 course lunches with wine (which could really have been a lighter meal) and some evening meals. The Captains dinner was great fun with live music and 4 courses. We enjoyed frequent swim stops and inclusive and optional daily activities. We had a good mix of free time and organised events. Mariana our Cruise Manager did an excellent organisational job all week, even sorting out appropriate covid tests. Everything was well-explained and she was very helpful (fluent in several languages) Nothing was too much trouble and she listened to personal requests! This was our first experience of a mini-cruise and we can’t wait to rebook next year. Fab memories from an amazing holiday. A cruise on MV Rhapsody is a truly incredible experience.

DO NOT BOOK!!!

Review for: Split - Dubrovnik - Split Cruise (KL2)

DO NOT book a cruise with this group. We booked a week long cruise, everything from the levels and types of boats are mis-leading. We had a cruise to and from Split stopping into some islands and as a maritime professional I was flabbergasted. The crew drank all day everyday including the captain and including when underway. There were literally guests sitting with empty glasses at lunch and in the evening and the waitress was running glass full of rum, vodka, gin forward to the bridge and galley. We did not receive what was advertised daily and there was no Covid related cleaning, in fact there was no cleaning at all just making the beds. Then at the end they try to inflate your bill and lie about the drink pricing and THEN they ask for a tip for the crew. It could be a comedy sketch if it weren't for the fact that passengers were no doubt in danger if something had happened like an engine fire. NEVER NEVER will I book a Croatia Cruise through this company and if I were to book a future cruise it would be with a proper company on a small Catamaran or something similar where they have offices and boats outside Croatia.
