Between 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm embarkation in the port of Trogir. If you are travelling to Trogir by your own car, you can drive to our car park reception from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm at the latest. Park your car here and our service team will bring your luggage to the port or to the ship in time. It is a ten-minute walk (approx. 1,100 m) to the harbour. After embarkation, you will be greeted by our representative with a welcome drink and get to know the crew and fellow passengers. During a snack on board we lift anchor after embarkation and set course for Split, the capital of Dalmatia. Split's main attraction is the old town, which grew out of Diocletian's Palace. The complex, which is a World Heritage Site, houses houses, churches, cafés… places full of flair between 1700-year-old Roman walls!

Our first destination today is the island of Šolta. From the port of Stomorska we hike to the highest peak on the island, Vela Straža, 232 m high. Via the village of Kruščica and the bay of the same name we return to the ship in Stomorska. We weigh anchor and during lunch we set course for the island of Vis. The island of Vis was closed to foreign visitors until the end of the 1980s. Where there was once the runway of an air force base, wine is now grown.

We leave Vela Luka and sail to the Pelješac peninsula, one of Croatia's most important wine-growing areas.

We moor in the village of Kučište, from where we walk to the 15th century Franciscan monastery. Sightseeing of the monastery and the captain's cemetery, then we walk on to Orebić, where our ship is already waiting for us. Lunch on board and a short trip to the town of Korčula opposite. Korčula has one of the most beautiful old towns in Dalmatia and is often called "Little Dubrovnik" because of its fortress-like appearance.
