8 days / 7 nights - Cruise
Split to Split
At 13.00h departure from the Split harbour, late arrivals can join in Rogoznica. Lunch is served en route, followed by a stop in a quiet bay (known to the captain!) for an afternoon swim. Overnight in Rogoznica, or in Primošten, depending on the situation in port – both are charming and picturesque small villages that offer many restaurants and bars.
Do try the famous Babic wine, made locally.
During breakfast, the journey continues towards The Krka National Park (entrance fee 15 - 27 EUR per person). Discover the beauty of the Krka National Park and the small access port of Skradin, where the flora and fauna are exceptional. Lunch on board with spectacular views of the Krka Canyon as we sail by on the way towards Šibenik. Free afternoon with optional sightseeing of this historic town. Above the town centre, there’s a castle and numerous historic buildings with Foscolo Palace, the perfect example of Gothic style while the church of St Lawrence is in Baroque style.
Overnight in the popular resort of Vodice, a lively place in the high season. Many local restaurants and cafes have lovely terraces with sea views. Enjoy these or take a stroll along the wonderful beaches of this typical Dalmatian town.
Today we visit the Kornati National Park (entrance fee included) which is actually made up of 100 islands and reefs. This is really something remarkable to see as inlets on some islands descend steeply into the sea, a hundred meters deep in places, and are dramatically razor sharp. The islands are rich in fish and cultural and historic remains.
There are ruins of the old Illyrian fortress, Roman villas, the old Christian church of St. Mary and medieval fortresses and settlements among these islands. Overnight in Sali on Dugi Otok (Long Island).
The morning is reserved for swimming. In the afternoon, departure towards Zadar. Join a guided tour of the city (included on Premium Superior and Premium vessels). Zadar was important for centuries as the metropolis of Dalmatia, and today it is the centre of the region. The city is rich in the monumental heritage of world importance. The most visited sites include the Roman forum dating back to the 1st century AD, the church of St. Donatus from the 9th century AD – the most famous Medieval basilica and the symbol of the city, the mighty city walls with the representative Sea and Land City Gates from the 16th century AD.
Also, numerous glorious palaces, and villas. There are many superb restaurants in the centre and by the waterfront. From historic places to the contemporary, don`t miss a visit to the famous Zadar Sea Organ and “The Greeting to the Sun” light installation, both spectacular. Overnight in Zadar.
Today we head back, travelling south along the Dalmatian coast. Swimming stop in one of the beautiful bays en route, before reaching Zlarin. With just a few hundreds of permanent inhabitants in winter, this lovely car-free island in summer welcomes around 3,000 tourists. Coral farming dates back to the 15th Century and is enjoying a slow revival.
You may see coral items on sale from local artisans. Captain’s dinner is included on Premium Superior and Premium vessels. Overnight at a village on the tiny island of Zlarin in the Šibenik archipelago.
Departure after breakfast and a swimming stop in one of the tranquil bays. Enjoy the incredibly clear seawater. After lunch, cruise to the old Dalmatian town of Trogir (Greek relief from 4th century was found here). Trogir is sometimes referred to as “miniature Venice” or a “mini Dubrovnik” because of its ancient walls, or a floating museum town - as it has masterful architecture including some stunning Venetian palaces.
Join the optional guided tour of Trogir (included on Premium Superior vessel). The old town is a UNESCO heritage site and there’s a great choice of bars and restaurants. Overnight in Trogir.
As the vessel sails back to the Split Riviera, today those who enjoy swimming will have plenty of reasons for happiness. Swim stop in one of the bays on Čiovo island (connected to Trogir by a bridge). In the afternoon, cruise toward the last port of call while enjoying the fabulous views of Split Riviera’s coastline and islands. Join the optional guided tour of Split (included on Premium Superior vessel). The historical complex of Split is under UNESCO protection, and its monuments are wondrous both to local inhabitants and to the many visitors who fall in love with this 1,000-plus-year-old beauty.
Examples of Roman architecture are plentiful – of special interest is Diocletian’s palace, built by the Roman emperor as his retirement home. Enjoy the evening wandering through parts of the palace and along Split’s famous waterfront. Overnight in Split.
Early breakfast and then it’s time to say goodbye to the crew and all the new friends.
Hope to see you again
