Itinerary

Transfer from Split airport to Split harbour where the vessel will be docked. Check-in from 12pm followed by departure from the Split harbour at 2pm. Enjoy a welcome cocktail and unbelievable views of the surroundings while cruising towards Primošten. A swim stop in a quiet, secluded bay enroute for a refreshing afternoon swim. Primošten is a small, picturesque town situated between Šibenik and Trogir, surrounded by seven other islets, a wonderful sight, and an exceptional breathtaking place to explore. Try the famous local Babich wines. Dinner and overnight on board. Overnight on board in Primosten.

Meals Included:
Dinner

After breakfast, cruise towards Dugi Otok and a morning swim stop, followed by a visit to the Telašćica Nature Park which is surrounded by 13 islands and islets. Due to its intense beauty, richness, and importance, it was proclaimed a nature park in 1988 together with 6 islets inside the bay of Telašćica. Time at leisure to explore the white cliffs and the lake. After lunch onboard cruise toward Sali. Afternoon olive oil tasting in Sali. Dinner on board and overnight in Sali.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast and a morning swim, cruise towards the island of Lošinj, known as the sunshine island. An abundance of pines, wildflowers and herbs, its excellent climate, hidden coves, and cool Mediterranean vibe – all of this makes Lošinj one of the most popular islands on the northern Adriatic. Join a guided walking tour, followed by a visit to the Museum of Apoxyomenos. The museum is dedicated to the ancient bronze statue of an athlete found in the sea near the island. Walk up to the Lošinj Aromatic Garden or to the smaller town of Veli Lošinj both easy to reach and explore on foot. Overnight in Mali Lošinj.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Morning cruise towards Zadar, travelling by Pag island with its unusual moon-like landscape. Upon arrival in Zadar, join a guided tour to explore the rich cultural heritage: the Roman Forum from the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus from the 9th century AD – the most famous medieval basilica and symbol of the city, the imposing and mighty city walls with the representative Port and Land Gates from the 16th century AD, and numerous palaces and villas of former noble families. Great restaurants line part of the waterfront and the centre. See the famous contemporary attractions: the Sea Organ, one of a kind in the world and “The Greeting to the Sun” light installation. Overnight in Zadar.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Wake up and admire the scenic views as the cruise proceeds south, while having a wonderful breakfast. Upon arrival to Skradin, visit the Bibich winery or similar for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin, walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 100 m wide, and the Krka River tumbles 45.7 meters. The late afternoon destination is Šibenik, a town situated in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast. Join the guided sightseeing tour to explore the glorious old town, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here, the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. Wander around and discover the historic core and waterfront. Back on the vessel for the Captain’s dinner with live entertainment on board. Overnight in Šibenik.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Early morning cruise towards the island of Vis, once a strategic naval Yugoslav base and for many years closed for tourism. As a result, the culture and architecture are extremely well preserved. The town Vis was developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, the first urban centre in Croatia. After lunch on board, time at leisure to explore. Taste great local wines, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, the City Museum, rent a scooter, or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Villa Rustica situated along the waterfront. Overnight in the port of Vis.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

Morning cruise to the small island of Biševo to visit the Blue Cave, a splendorous and unique geomorphological natural wonder. A hypnotizing silver-blue light illuminates the space inside the cave (Entrance fee approx.15 €, to be paid on the spot). The visit will depend on the weather & tide conditions. After lunch, as the cruise continues towards Split, enjoy the unbelievable views of the surrounding seas and the amazing Split 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.

Meals Included:
Breakfast, Lunch

After breakfast, it is time to say goodbye to the crew and all your new friends. Check out by 9.00am and transfer to Split airport. End of our services.

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.

The Captain has the right to change the itinerary in case of bad weather or similar inappropriate conditions in ports to ensure safety on board. Routing may also change due to the number of vessels in each port. 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.

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.
