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

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.

 

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.

Thank you Sun Island Tours

Review for: Venice To Split

Thank you Sun Island Tours Just last week we returned from our 3 week holiday to Venice, Ljubliana (Slovenia) & Croatia. My husband has never really had the desire to travel to Europe and when I asked him if he wanted to go, he responded ‘not really, but you just tell me when & I will have my bag packed’. I was really worried what his thoughts were. Not only could I see that he was having a good time, he told me that it was a great family holiday. Having a background in the building industry, he was amazed with the buildings, the feature, textures and the construction of them. Still being a bit budget conscious, you recommended Hotel Malibran in Venice that was European 3 star. I wasn’t sure what that meant, but it was clean & comfortable. The breakfast was included and was enough to give us a great start to the day. We stayed approx. a 10 min walk from San Marco and I think it was a better location. Loved exploring the back alleys. Although we took up your recommendation of Ljubliana in Slovenia, this was the place I was concerned about. After now ticking this off my list I can only describe Ljubliana as a scene out a romantic move, stunning! Side note – I might have to revisit as we had a half pouring raining afternoon and I didn’t go on the funicular to the Castle. The half day tours to Lake Bled, Postojna cave & Predjama castle were perfect and just the right amount of time. City Hotel was close to the old town, great stay & yummy breakfast. From here we took the train to Zargreb (another experience that I would 100% recommend). Short stop in Zargreb before we went to Split via Plitvice Lakes. Plitvice is worth the visit. We booked a 7 night small boat cruise from Split to Dubrovnik. I loved every single port. The crew were great and the Cruise Director was kind enough to recommend some family friendly restaurants. A travel tip for your clients – they will do your washing on board and it is only approx. $30. A highlight for my daughter was the island of Vis and visiting the locations of were they filmed Mamma Mia 2. At the end of our trip we stayed 2 nights in Dubrovnik. Thank you for booking us into Hotel More! Spectacular in every way. Whilst there we enjoyed an afternoon at the cave bar watching the sunset for my daughter’s birthday. Probably the best day of my holiday. We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous family holiday that we have just had. Your staff looked after every detail and I’m looking forward to booking my next holiday with you.

I booked my last holiday

Review for: Wonders of Croatia and Slovenia

I booked my last holiday to Europe through Sun island tours and had them organise my itinerary in Slovenia and Croatia. We had excellent service in organising dates and quotes for flights and accommodation. We also had very clear and open lines of communication with Sun island tours throughout the trip. In Slovenia, we went on a day trip to Lake Bled and Postanja caves and had a fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. A+++, would recommend, and I have already booked my next holiday with Sun Island tours.

Hey Rebecca, we're so glad Slovenia is getting the attention it deseves. For such a small country it packs a punch in terms of food, culture, and incredible sightseeing. It's so green too, with over 30% of the country being national park. We hope you enjoy the next trip as much as the last. Regards, The Sun Island Team

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I

Review for: Venice To Opatija

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I went to the UK for work in December and decided to visit Slovenia and Croatia afterwards. I had previously used Sun Island Tours to arrange my Malta, Greece and Cyprus holiday, and so happily used them again. They are lovely to deal with, generous with their time and reliable. Their destination knowledge is exceptional – they recommended lovely hotels in the perfect locations, and the best day tours. I also appreciated that they listened to my requests for mid-range accommodation and did not push expensive hotels on me. I had an amazing, tailor-made holiday visiting the Christmas markets and gorgeous villages and cities of Slovenia and Croatia. Thank you Sun Island Tours yet again for a wonderful holiday!

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Hi Britt, Thank you for your kind review. We are working hard to establish some of the lesser known destinations that you’ve already visited (like Cyprus and Slovenia), and we particularly feel like Slovenia is totally underappreciated. For such a tiny country, it has so much to offer, including some of the nicest and most welcoming people in all of Europe. We look forward to helping create your 3rd trip with us in the future, and thank you again for your time. Kind regards, Sun Island Tours Management
