Stay: Seven Nights, aboard the Queen EleganzaDaily :
Dubrovnik, Badija, Korčula
Spend the morning on a guided walk through the unrivalled ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, the medieval Old Town of Dubrovnik. A guided tour of Dubrovnik’s World Heritage-listed fortress begins at the impressive Pile Gate, which has stood guard at the entry of this unique walled city for centuries. Within the ancient fortifications, wander through narrow limestone alleys and marble paved boulevards to see the grand Gothic-Renaissance Rector’s Palace, the Dominican and Franciscan Monasteries, and the inspiring Sponza Palace before returning to your ship for lunch. This afternoon stop at the idyllic island of Badija for a swim in the warm azure waters of the Adriatic Sea before continuing to Korčula where your ship will be docked overnight. With the evening at leisure, enjoy the chance to dine in one of the local restaurants on the waterfront esplanade that fringes Korčula’s Old Town.Daily :
On arrival at the Croatian island of Vis, disembark to explore this remote and largely untouched natural beauty during a scenic drive around the island.
This morning enjoy free time to get to know Korčula, the birthplace of the famed explorer Marco Polo. Perhaps spend your time exploring the city’s maze of cobblestone medieval streets and elegant squares flanked by palaces of the old nobility. This Old Town may not be as well-known as Dubrovnik, but it is every bit as rewarding for those lucky enough to visit. Return to your ship for lunch. Enjoy an Insider Experience before returning to your ship tonight for dinner before perhaps taking a leisurely stroll in town, as we moor overnight.Daily :
Set sail as the sun rises and arrive into Split as you enjoy breakfast with a view over one of the Adriatic’s most vibrant port cities. Let your guide take you on a walking tour through the city, stopping to delve into the rich history of the Diocletian’s Palace. Built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian for his retirement in 305 AD, the Old Town of Split is contained within its walls, making it the only Roman palace in existence that has been continuously inhabited since Roman times. Reboard your ship and enjoy lunch as you cruise to Šibenik. On arrival in this charming port city, take a walk through the remarkably well-preserved white-walled Old Town with your guide, visiting the Cathedral of St James and the impressive St Michael’s Fortress. Enjoy the expansive views of Šibenik Bay and neighbouring islands from the fortress’s open-air theatre, which has been modernised to host summer plays and concerts. Your ship remains in port overnight here in Šibenik so you can enjoy the flexibility to choose between having dinner on board or heading into town to a local restaurant.Daily :
Krka National Park, Zadar
Experience the natural beauty of Krka National Park.
Šibenik is known as the gateway to the magical Krka National Park and today you will spend the morning at the dramatic waterfalls this area is famous for. Wander along wooden boardwalks and bridges at Skradinski Buk, an azure natural pool with high waterfalls at one end and serene cascades at the other. Return to your ship for lunch and set sail this afternoon for Zadar, an ancient port city that at one stage rivalled Venice as the most influential city on the Adriatic Coast. Arrive in the early evening and enjoy free time to explore this historic city independently. Be sure to head to the Monument to the Sun for one of Croatia’s best sunsets, then marvel at the Sea Organ, an imaginative art installation that uses the ebb and flow of the sea to make a soothing melody. Enjoy dinner ashore tonight as your ship stays moored close to an array of charming restaurants and bars, perhaps rubbing shoulders with the local fishermen that today hauled in the fresh seafood you may well dine on this evening.Daily :
Wake this morning and enjoy breakfast with fantastic views over the ancient Adriatic city of Zadar before setting out on a walking tour visiting the 9th-century circular Church of St Donat, and the 13th-century Romanesque cathedral. Set sail as your lunch is served before stopping at the island of Pag for a swim before continuing to Rab Island. This evening is free to wander the white-walled harbour foreshore, enjoying dinner at a local restaurant overlooking the vibrant port marina.Daily :
Rab, Krk, Opatija
Enjoy a guided walk through the picturesque Old Town of Rab, a perfectly preserved late medieval Adriatic settlement squeezed into a slender peninsula. Then, after some free time, set sail as lunch is served. Anchor at the island of Krk where you can take a refreshing swim in the inviting Adriatic. Cruise to Opatija, arriving during the early afternoon for a guided walk through the town. Spend the rest of the day at leisure, before joining your new-found friends for a special Captain’s Farewell Dinner this evening aboard your ship.Daily :
