Itinerary

Day 1 – Saturday:                            DUBROVNIK

M/S MAMA MARIJA II vessel will be docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbor where you can board during the entire day. At 7.00 pm we will have a welcome meeting where Captain will introduce you to the crew and your fellow passengers, followed by a welcome dinner at 7.30 pm. Embarkation is possible throughout the whole day. Passengers arriving in the morning will not be able to enter their cabins before 2.00 pm but can leave luggage on board. Captain will wait for the passengers arriving late at night. All the late arriving guests are required to notify staff in advance so a dinner can be prepared and provided. Overnight on board in Dubrovnik. (D)

Day 2 – Sunday:                                DUBROVNIK – SLANO

After breakfast, visit the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik, known as “The Pearl of Adriatic”. After the city tour, you’ll be left on your own to explore, visit City Walls or take a scenic cable car to the top of Mount Srđ with its stunning 360° vista. Return coach transfer is scheduled between 12:30-13:00. Lunch onboard as you sail out for Slano, one of the most picturesque places on the Dubrovnik Riviera, with beautiful beaches, dense pine forest and olive groves, a long cultural tradition and numerous historical monuments. An optional excursion to Ston is available, a fortified town famous for 5-kilometre-long walls, old saltwork and oyster/mussel farm. Reservations and payment made locally. Overnight in Slano. (B,L)

Day 3 – Monday:                              SLANO – MLJET – KORCULA

Morning departure towards Mljet National Park, where you can walk around the Great and Small Lake, visit the Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century and, of course, take a swim in the heart of National Park. Entrance fees to Mljet National Park are included. Later, sail to the Island of Korčula, with lunch on board. The town of Korčula is the island’s main settlement and is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the world’s most famous explorers of all times. Enjoy a walking tour of Korčula Town, through its narrow and cobbled streets with rich history. You will have rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice. Overnight in Korčula. (B, L)

Day 4 – Tuesday:                              KORCULA – VIS

In the morning, cruise to the Island of Vis, with lunch on board and a swim stop en route. Compared to other Adriatic islands, Vis is rather unique. Being an important strategic military stronghold for centuries, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture, and traditional architecture. Enjoy the afternoon exploring the town of Vis, its picturesque stone streets, pristine beaches, and fine taverns. An optional Vis Island excursion is available, ending in Komiža, a stunning fishermen’s village to have dinner in one of the cosy restaurants. Reservations and payment made locally. Overnight in Vis Town. (B,L)

Day 5 – Wednesday:                      VIS – BISEVO – HVAR

Today we will cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. However, please note, sometimes high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave. In case we cannot enter Blue Cave due to such sea conditions, you will get a full ticket refund. After a swim stop and lunch, we will continue cruising along the many coves and bays, towards Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island. Hvar is one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jetsetters. Enjoy a walking tour through this unique city, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture, and a way of life. Afterwards, you will have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of numerous family-owned restaurants and taverns. Overnight in Hvar. (B, L)

Day 6 – Thursday:                            HVAR – BOL, BRAC – TROGIR

In the morning, cruise towards Bol, a place best known for its beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), which regularly hits the top lists of the most beautiful European beaches. Enjoy a walk around this little Dalmatian town, perhaps having a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch we will continue cruising towards Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This town – museum is packed with palaces, churches, monasteries, and towers. Enjoy a city tour of Trogir, followed by time at leisure to continue exploring. This evening, we will have Captain’s Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment. Overnight in Trogir. (B, L, D)

Day 7 – Friday:                                  TROGIR – SPLIT

In the morning, we will sail out for Split, our last port on this cruise, with a swim stop along the way. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon Split City tour, walking through the world-famous Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List ever since 1979. After the city tour you will be left on your own to explore this lively and bustling Mediterranean city and to enjoy an intimate farewell dinner on your own. Overnight in Split. (B, L)

Spot-on!

Review for: Sapphire Cruise Split - Dubrovnik

This holiday delivered exactly what our group was looking for, especially after coming back to travel from Covid. I cannot suggest any improvements. The itineary was relaxed and yet informative, a perfect balance of recreation with culture and history. The ship was modern and comfortable and the staff looked after every passenger with ease. The clients were a nice mix of nationalities and we mixed together and really made some great friends. I would highly recommend this cruise and the team at Sun Island made it a breeze to communicate through the whole process. 5 STARS!

MS Oscar Dubrovnik to Split- amazing!!

Review for: Oscar Cruise Dubrovnik-Split

What a fabulous way to see the Dalmatian Coast.  MS Oscar was a beautiful boat… just new and perfect in every way.   The cruise was incredible.  The swimming stops and the islands and places we visited were wonderful and Ana our Cruise Director was fabulous.  Nothing to was difficult.  She kept us informed, giving us information about every stop, best restaurants to visit and potential tours to do.  Loved all the walking tours also.  Very, very happy with our Dalmatian Coast Cruise.  Thank you!!!

Perfect

Review for: Oscar Cruise Dubrovnik-Split

We recently embarked on a 7 night cruise on the MS Mama Marija (Sapphire Cruise) booked through Sun Island Tours. This cruise was an amazing experience, with unbelievable destinations and activities and just the right amount of relaxing time travelling between destinations. The accommodation,food and service on the boat was fantastic and couldn't really ask for anything more.
