Day 1 UK to Split to Trogir


Fly to Split and transfer by coach to Trogir where you board MV Amorena (4*) and moor overnight.

You may like to explore the many bars or cafes which line the seaside promenade, admire the Romanesque and Renaissance architecture or simply enjoy a stroll through Trogir's labyrinth of cobbled streets.

Please note: Coaches are no longer permitted to enter the port and will instead stop in Trogir’s town centre, approximately 200 metres from your ship. You are required to carry your luggage to and from the transfer coaches to the vessel. D

Day 2 Trogir to Skradin and Krka National Park

Krka National Park

This morning MV Amorena cruises to Skradin, where you can enjoy an included half-day excursion into Krka National Park to see the amazing natural phenomenon of the Krka waterfalls.

The Krka River has been seeping through highly porous limestone or 'karst', creating a spectacular series of cascades and caves and, where the limestone has collapsed, lakes. You'll be able to walk through the green forests and view the tranquil lakes which frame the whole spectacle of roaring cataracts and tumbling cascades.

This part of the excursion involves a fair amount of walking, including on flights of stone steps, and standing for long periods. If you have any concerns about its suitability please consult your tour manager beforehand.

Your ship will moor in Skradin overnight. B, L

Sailing time approximately five hours.

Skradin Sibenik-Knin County Dalmatia Croatia Europe

Day 3 Sibenik and Skradin to Zadar

Sibenik Cathedral, Croatia

An included sightseeing tour will reveal the delights of Sibenik. The city grew up around one of the most protected natural harbours on the Adriatic coast, about 80 km north of Split.

It's an attractive place with narrow streets and squares, where historic buildings jostle with modern shops and restaurants. You can see a variety of historic buildings including the former Bishop's Palace, the 15th-century Ducal Palace and St Jacob's Cathedral, one of the most important Renaissance buildings in Croatia.

Afterwards, you'll return to MV Amorena and sail through a dense area of islands to the ancient city of Zadar, where you remain moored overnight. B, L, D

Sailing time approximately four hours.

Zadar Zadar County Dalmatia Croatia Europe

Day 4 Zadar to Telascica


An included guided walking tour this morning reveals Zadar's historic street layout, which dates back to the Roman times. You'll also see the Roman sea gate, the ancient city walls and the old churches of St Simeon and St Chrysogonus. Keep an eye out for the Permanent Exhibition of Religious Art, popularly known as ‘The Gold and Silver of Zadar’, which was formed in the monastery of the church of St Mary.

Like many European cities Zadar's old town, which was similar to that of Dubrovnik, was decimated by war-time bombing. Today, largely sympathetically restored, it's a peaceful place to wander along historic streets and enjoy people-watching in the bars and cafes.

Later you'll get back on board MV Amorena and cruise to Telascica for an overnight mooring. B, L

Sailing time approximately three hours.

Telascica Dugi Otok Zadar County Dalmatia Croatia Europe

Day 5 Telascica to Vodice to Zlarin


This morning, cruise through Kornati National Park – a pretty archipelago of 140 islands and reefs. It covers 64 square kilometres and takes its name from the largest island, Kornat. There are no permanent settlements in Kornati, so you'll really be able to enjoy the true natural beauty of this region as you cruise through the national park.

Afterwards, you'll continue past picturesque towns and villages as MV Amorena makes her way to the coastal town of Vodice, where you can step ashore, before heading south to the tranquil island of Zlarin. MV Amorena moors here overnight . B, L, D

Sailing time approximately five hours.

Zlarin Sibenik-Knin County Dalmatia Croatia Europe

Day 6 Zlarin to Primosten to Split


After breakfast, you'll cruise past one of the most picturesque small towns on the Adriatic, Primosten. You'll continue to Split, where you can enjoy a guided walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site which includes a visit to the vast Imperial Diocletian's Palace.

It owes its name to the Roman Emperor Diocletian who built it as his retirement home and spent his declining years here between the late third and early fourth centuries. During the Middle Ages a town was constructed within the palace, before expanding beyond it and along the west walls.

Much of the old Roman structure still survives, including the Mausoleum of Diocletian (now the Cathedral of St Domnius), almost completely preserved in its original octagonal form, the Mausoleum of Diocletian and the Peristyle – an open courtyard surrounded by graceful Corinthian columns, now an attractive square.

Other highlights of the city include the ancient Temple of Jupiter which became St John's Church, and the Archaeological Museum which was founded in 1820 and is the oldest in Croatia. Your ship will remain moored in Split tonight . B, L

Sailing time approximately six hours.

Split Split-Dalmatia Dalmatia Croatia Europe

Day 7 Split to Trogir

A square inside the Diocletian's Palace the old centre of Split, Croatia

MV Amorena returns to Trogir this morning, passing the bays on the island of Ciovo. Unusually, the heart of the city is built on a small island between the mainland and the island of Ciovo and connected to both by bridges.

An included guided tour of Trogir will reveal its UNESCO-listed centre which has been influenced by the Greeks, Romans and Venetians during its long history. Trogir's Cathedral of St Lawrence was built on the site of an ancient church between 1193 and 1500.

The remarkable Romanesque door was carved in or around 1240 by the well-known local master craftsman, Radovan. Other attractions include the 15th-century city loggia, the Cipiko Palace, dating back to the 13th century but further embellished in the 15th century, the town hall and the Benedictine monastery.

You'll moor in Trogir for your final night aboard MV Amorena. B, L, D
