Cruise from Dubrovnik to Omiš with Providenca
Embark at any time after 14:00. Over a welcome drink and a snack, meet your Cruise Director and the crew and get acquainted with the rules and safety measures. Your journey begins with dinner onboard and overnight in Dubrovnik.
Enjoy a hearty breakfast before joining in an optional guided tour* of Dubrovnik Old Town. Surrounded in immense city walls, as if in a universe of its own, the world-famous Gothic and baroque facades line up as you walk the same streets like the cast and crews of the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood. The merchant power equal to the one of Venetian Republic, Dubrovnik was a large seafaring force. Dubrovnik nobility and captains fancied the small town of Slano for their summer estates and you will understand why as soon as you arrive in the afternoon. Explore this quaint seaside settlement on your own or join our optional tour** to the town of Ston, known for many things gourmand: potent wines, ancient salt production and succulent oysters and mussels.
*Dubrovnik town tour with a coach transfer– optional walking tour package
**Optional excursion: Taste of Dalmatia
Breakfasts on board are always served with a view. Enjoy the start of your day before arriving to the green island of Mljet. The national park on the island is the home of two salty lakes connected to the sea via a narrow canal. Nature lovers will get a thrill from hiking or cycling here, possibly even kayaking to the small islet in the center of the lake, charming with its 12th-century Monastery of St. Mary. Alternatively, join our optional excursion** – but whatever you do, do not pass on setting foot on Mljet! After a refreshing dip along the way, visit Korčula. You’ll know Korčula was a Venetian stronghold as soon as you lay your eyes on the many lion statues which lurk at you from the town’s facades and gates, intertwined with some of the most outstanding stonework you will get see anywhere on the Adriatic coast. The alleged home of the world renowned traveler Marco Polo is bound to charm you whether you explore it on your own or in an optional walking tour*. Overnight in Korčula.

**Optional excursion: Mljet National Park
Enjoy a breakfast with a view and a morning sail to Hvar, officially the sunniest of 1200 Croatian islands. This jet-set fave is also the island with the most UNESCO-listed heritage in the entire world, so consider joining our optional guided tour*. In the afternoon, hop over to the island of Vis, the most distant from the coast of all inhabited islands in Croatia. Closed off to the public for the larger part of the 20th century for its role as an important Yugoslav military base, Vis and its nature remain incredibly preserved even today. Dinner onboard and overnight in Vis.
*Hvar walking tour – optional walking tour package
You will wake up to views of Vis town waterfront, comprised of the newer, 19th-century harbor area, and the historic, medieval corner. Spanning over two millennia, the array of heritage in this small settlement might not surprise, ranging from a Greek cemetery and Roman baths to an English fort and Yugoslav militia tributes. Join an optional guided tour** to get insight into the tumultuous history of Vis before setting sail towards the mainland. Arriving to Šibenik, snatch a spot on the deck, as its stone waterfront, nestled beneath the impressive St. Michael fort, remains a sight to behold. An optional walking tour* will introduce you to Šibenik’s great claim to Renaissance – both the one centuries ago, when the town’s Cathedral of St. James was constructed, and the present day, with the town known as one of Croatia’s upcoming gems. Experience its stone alleys and great cuisine in an evening on your own. Overnight in Šibenik.

**Optional excursion: Vis
When sailing along the Croatian coast, surpassing the beauty around you may seem like an impossible task. Perhaps so, but there are sites on the Croatian mainland which surely parallel it, such as the Krka River and its stunning estuary. A coach trip brings you to the small town of Skradin, the guardian of the mouth of River Krka, and the gateway to its National park. The place where wild waterfalls inspire serene lakes, the park is definitely worth a visit before heading back to the seaside to visit the gem of Trogir, a petite island bridged to the mainland. A showcase of stunning architecture founded upon Greek and Roman heritage, Trogir has been protected by UNESCO, just like its big neighbor and your next stop, the town of Split. Explore on your own or join our optional* Split walking tour to learn about the Diocletian’s Palace, once the Roman Emperor’s retirement estate and today a lively city center. Whatever you do, make sure to take it easy in Split, as after all, that is the true highlight of local living here. Dinner on board and overnight in Split.
*Split walking tour – optional walking tour package
As you wave Split and its easy-going spirit goodbye, you’ll be heading to one of the neighboring islands, Brač, known as the homeland of ‘the Croatian marble’. You’ve probably seen this ultra-quality limestone already, perhaps on the front of the White House in Washington DC or Bundestag in Berlin, but the optional tour* to the still-operating stonemasonry school in Pučišća brings a chance to learn more about shaping this stone for eternity. Once back at the mainland, get stunned by the dramatic karst rocks backing the lovely settlement of Omiš, right at the mouth of Cetina River. Consider exploring the Cetina River canyon in a boat excursion**. Overnight in Omiš.
