From 12 noon to 2:00 pm embarkation in Dubrovnik for cruise guests arriving by car. Guests arriving by plane, depending on their time of arrival, may also embark later in the course of Saturday. You will have the afternoon and the evening to discover the amazing old town, which seems to be a huge open-air museum. It takes only a few minutes by bus to get from the port of Gruž to the old town. The bus stop is located right next to the port, the bus leaves every 10 minutes, last return journey around 2:00 am. Tickets are available from the kiosk (12 Kuna per ride) or on the bus (15 Kuna per ride). In the evening our representative will greet you with a welcome drink and introduce you to the crew, followed by dinner on board.
Dubrovnik is also called the "Pearl of the Adriatic", since in the Middle Ages the city counted among the most important economic and cultural centres of the Mediterranean area. Today, the old town unfolds a unique open air museum, boasting numerous sights and secrets to discover. After breakfast we will enjoy a guided tour of the historic town of Dubrovnik. Use the rest of the time to discover the "Pearl of the Adriatic" on your own. Stroll through the famous "Stradun", take a walk along the impressive walls and visit the countless attractions or take the cable car to the 415 m high mountain Srđ, from which you can enjoy a unique view of the old town and the sea. During the day, we will do a small excursion with our boat, heading to one of the lovely bays of the nearby Elafiti Archipelago to take a first refreshing dip in the crystal-clear Sea. Lunch will be served on board, while you may enjoy dinner in one of Dubrovnik's restaurants. Overnight stay in Dubrovnik.
After breakfast we weigh anchor, heading to the island of Mljet. On our way, we will anchor in a secluded bay to enjoy our on-board lunch and an extended break for swimming and sunbathing, before continuing on to Pomena on the island of Mljet. Part of the island was declared a national park - two saltwater lakes (in the larger one there is a small island with a former monastery) are connected only by a narrow channel to the sea. Do not miss the opportunity to visit the National Park (entrance fee incl. boat ride to the small monastery island approx. 17 €, payable on-site). We recommend that you bring your bathing suit, since the temperature of the salt water lakes is always 2°C above the temperature of the sea. Overnight stay in Pomena, where you may go out for dinner.
Passing the Pelješac peninsula and the island of Korčula, we head to the island of Hvar. The island is best known for its vast lavender fields and also for being the Adriatic island with the most hours of sunshine and the mildest climate.

"With the head in the shade, the belly in the sun, and the feet in the water" – this was the statement once made by a guest who spent his holiday on the Makarska Riviera.

After lunch on board and an extended bath break, we head for the town of Makarska or one of the neighbouring places in the late afternoon. Opportunity for dinner and overnight stay.
