Itinerary

DAY 1:                               SPLIT – PRIMOSTEN

Check-in from 1300hrs, followed by departure from the Split harbour at 1400hrs. Enjoy a welcome cocktail and unbelievable views of the surroundings while cruising towards Primošten. Swim stop in a quiet, secluded bay en route 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. (D)

DAY 2:                               PRIMOSTEN – KORNATI NATIONAL PARK –  TELASCICA

After breakfast, cruise towards Dugi Otok and a morning swim stop, followed by a cruise through the breathtaking Kornati National Park. Lunch on board and swim stop followed by the visit to the Telašćica Nature Park which, due to its intense beauty, richness, and importance, together with 6 islets inside the bay of Telašćica itself, was proclaimed a nature park in 1988. Time at leisure to explore the white cliffs and the lake. Overnight in Telašćica. (B, L)

DAY 3:                               TELASCICA – LOSINJ

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. (B, L)

DAY 4:                               LOSINJ – ZADAR

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. (B, L)

DAY 5:                               ZADAR – SKRADIN (KRKA NATIONAL PARK) – SIBENIK

Wake up and admire the scenic views as the cruise proceeds south, while having a wonderful breakfast. Upon arrival to Skradin, visit the local winery 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 100m 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 onboard. Overnight in Šibenik. (B, L, D)

DAY 6:                               SIBENIK – HVAR

Early morning cruise towards the island of Hvar, the sunniest Adriatic island and the jet-set destination. Stop for lunch on board and swimming in the secluded bay. Upon arrival, time at leisure to explore 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. Walk through the smooth cobblestone streets, enjoy an aperitive and find a nice place for dinner. Overnight in Stari Grad. (B, L)

DAY 7:                               HVAR – BRAC – SPLIT

Morning cruise to Zlatni Rat, the most famous beach in Dalmatia (the Golden Horn – known for its gravel promontory shifts from side to side as the wind and waves constantly change their shape). Lunch on board and departure towards Split. Enjoy 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. (B, L)

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.

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!
