DAY 1 DUBROVNIK D
Transfer from Dubrovnik airport to Dubrovnik Gruž harbor for check in from 14.00h onwards. After settling in, transfer to city gates for a guided tour of the city. The special charm of this ancient town are the buildings that have remained from the time of the old Dubrovnik Republic. Many of the monuments belong to the modest Renaissance architecture with some traces of Gothic style.

After the tour, return transfer to the ship for a welcome meet & greet cocktail reception on board. Overnight in Dubrovnik.
DAY 2 DUBROVNIK – MLJET / KORČULA B, L
Next morning, we cruise a little further north to the Island of Mljet. The legend says Greek hero Odysseus spent years on this island when he was captured by the nymph Calypso. Join the cruise manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park and enjoy the boat ride to St Mary Isle to visit an ancient Benedictine monastery, an old abbey and a Church dating back to the 12th Century. Alternatively, you can rent kayaks, bicycles, scooters or convertible cars to roam around the National Park on your own, but beware of the nymphs! Next stop is Korčula, an island best known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, the famous explorer. Covering much of the island are the distinct, almost black pine forests so Korčula is also known as „the Black Island“. Korčula Town is like a mini Dubrovnik, as it also encased by medieval stone ramparts and towers.

DAY 7 PELJEŠAC - DUBROVNIK B, L
There is no better way to catch first sight of famous Dubrovnik than from the sea as we return to our final destination – Dubrovnik. It is one of the few walled cities on the sea in the world. Writer George Bernard Shaw described it as “heaven on earth”. We cruise alongside the old city walls for a true perspective of the majesty of this place.
