Itinerary

DAY 1:                                  SPLIT – BRAC 

Transfer from Split airport to Split harbour where the vessel will be docked. Check in from 12pm (1200hrs). Meet the crew and enjoy a welcome cocktail while setting sail for the first island on the route – Brač, the largest island in Dalmatia, known for the precious white stone used in famous buildings like the White House, Diocletian’s Palace, and the Budapest Parliament, to name a few. The village Pučišća has always been known for its culture of stone masonry. The harmony and homogeneousness of the plebeian houses, the Renaissance palaces and Baroque buildings made from the white stone of Brač, leave every visitor breathless. Visit the stone masonry workshop, one of a few lefts in Europe. Dinner on board and overnight in Pučišća. (D)

DAY 2:                                  BRAC – KORCULA

In the morning, after breakfast, cruise towards the Island of Korčula, best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo. Stop for lunch in one of the secluded bays en route. Early afternoon arrival in Korčula followed by a guided walking tour of this enchanting town, fortified by the walls. The island treasures many legends, myths, and tales. Discover Mystic Korčula, through a magic chest of traditions while wandering along the herringbone pattern streets. The town has an abundant choice of restaurants offering an awesome gourmet experience and numerous bars and clubs for evening entertainment. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)

DAY 3:                                  KORCULA – MLJET

Morning cruise further south towards the Island of Mljet. The legend says, Greek hero, Odysseus spent years on this island. During his travels, he was captured by the nymph Calypso and spent years with her in the cave right here, on Mljet. Enjoy one of the greenest islands of Adriatic and beware of the nymphs… Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park and enjoy the boat ride to the St Mary Isle, visit the ancient Benedictine monastery, an old abbey and a Church dating from the 12th Century. Mljet is a quiet and protected area, enjoy the serenity and nature and relax your senses. It is home to many endemic plant species and a rich historical heritage. There are many options for different activities, rent a bike or a kayak for leisure time to explore. Overnight in Pomena or Polača port. (B, L)

DAY 4:                                   MLJET – LASTOVO

After breakfast, departure towards Lastovo, the largest island of the archipelago of the same name. Lastovo was a military base for Yugoslavian Army and therefore closed for tourism till 1989. That is one of the reasons why the island kept its natural wooded beauty and sense of isolation. The central town of the island is located inland, which is very unusual for the islands, this is because the inhabitants had to hide from the pirates who tried to conquer this island many times during the past. After lunch on board, there will be a transfer to Lastovo, a very picturesque town with old stone houses set on a slope. Wine tasting at the local winery. Overnight in the port. (B, L)

DAY 5:                                   LASTOVO – BISEVO – VIS

Today’s destination is the island of Vis, lately known as the filming location of Mamma Mia 2. Visit the small island of Biševo and its famous Blue Cave, a splendorous and unique geomorphological natural wonder. A hypnotizing silver-blue light illuminates the space inside the cave (Entrance fee approx. EUR18, to be paid on the spot). The visit will depend on weather & tide conditions. Enjoy lunch on board as the vessel approaches Vis. Time at leisure to explore the main filming locations around the island: the Vis harbour, the Barjoška bay, the market, Barjaci – where the big Abba performance was filmed and many, many others. Possible to rent scooters/cars to visit the rest of the island on your own. Plenty of beautiful sights and dining places to discover in the evening. Overnight in Vis. (B, L)

DAY 6:                                   VIS – HVAR

Morning departure towards Hvar, the sunniest Adriatic island and the jet-set destination. Upon arrival, time at leisure to explore Hvar, walk through the smooth cobblestone streets, check out the oldest communal theatre in Europe (set above the “Arsenal” at the local square), or just take a cup of coffee at one of many terraces and feel the vibe. A bus will be ready for the excursion with lunch to Stari Grad, the oldest town in Croatia! The first settlers were the Greeks from the island Paros in the Aegean Sea, who established the colony in the year 384 B.C. and named the town Pharos. Learn more on a guided tour. In the evening a Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board. Overnight in Stari Grad. (B, L, D)

DAY 7:                                   HVAR – BRAC – SPLIT

Wake up early to admire the sunrise while enjoying the hearty breakfast. Relax on a sundeck and enjoy a swim stop at the most famous beach in Dalmatia – Zlatni Rat near Bol – whose position shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly cause the shape to change. After lunch, as the cruise continues towards Split, enjoy the unbelievable views of the surrounding seas and the amazing Split’s Riviera. Upon arrival, join the guided city tour. 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, making Croatia’s second-largest city one of the Mediterranean’s most compelling. Overnight in Split. (B, L)

DAY 8:                                   SPLIT

After breakfast, it is time to say goodbye. Check out by 9.00am and transfer to Split airport. End of our services. (B)

Wonderful 8 day cruise

Review for: Breathtaking Croatia Cruise Opatija-Split

Wonderful 8 day cruise on the Olmissum from Opatja on September 10 2022. The captain and crew were very professional and helpful in every way! The rooms and facilities were very comfortable and the food was excellent. Our on board tour manager, Josefine, was so knowledgeable about European history that she explained it effortlessly and with a real passion. We will definitely sail with this company again. It’s a great way to discover Croatia!
