This superb cruise from Split, overlooked by the magnificent Diocletian's Palace, showcases some of Croatia's most beautiful islands, towns and cities, with many evenings spent ashore in traditional restaurants and cafes.

Join your modern ship and set sail for the lavender-scented island of Hvar, enjoying a refreshing swim stop en route near Bol, a typical fisherman's village. On arrival in Hvar, see the iconic sights on a guided tour, including the striking Renaissance cathedral with its original tower. Continue to the tranquil island of Bisevo for a visit to the gorgeous Blue Cave, an incredible natural phenomenon, and on to Vis, once closed to the public. Sample some of the local wines, visit the City Museum, or simply take a stroll along the beautiful waterfront.

During your time in enchanting Korcula, enjoy a guided walking tour and learn about the fish bone street pattern. Further south is Mljet, where legend says that Greek hero Odysseys spent many years after being captured by the nymph Calypso. Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes of Mljet National Park and a boat ride to St Mary Isle with its ancient Benedictine Abbey. Continue to Slano and Ston to learn about oysters, before an overnight stop in Dubrovnik, nicknamed the 'Pearl of the Adriatic'. A cruise alongside the impressive city walls, and a cable car ride from the Old Town to Srd mountain are just two of the highlights during your time in this orange-roofed city.
