Day 2 Split-Primosten and Krka National Park-Zadar
Sail to Primosten and continue to Krka National Park for an included half-day excursion. The Krka River cuts through the park and has created a spectacular series of cascades and caves or lakes where the limestone has collapsed. You’ll see the amazing natural phenomenon of the Krka waterfalls, created by water seeping through highly porous limestone or 'karst'. Then rejoin your ship and continue cruising along the coast to Zadar for an overnight mooring. B, L, D
Day 3 Zadar-Kornati National Park-Zlarin
Today enjoy a scenic cruise through Kornati National Park, where more than 100 islands are divided by narrow channels and serene bays. Keep an eye out for Roman ruins and old fortresses that crown the hilltops, as well as the razor-sharp cliffs that plunge deep into the sea. Sail to the island of Zlarin where you moor at the main village, also called Zlarin. Look forward to live entertainment and an olive oil and cheese tasting session on board this evening. B, L, D
Day 4 Zlarin-Vis
Sail to the peaceful island of Vis where today’s included half-day excursion reveals well-preserved remains of a Roman public bath.

Day 5 Vis-Blue Cave-Hvar
Hop across the water to the tiny island of Bisevo for an included excursion into the magical Blue Cave, where reflections off the water paint an interior of iridescent blue. Continue cruising to Hvar for an afternoon of sightseeing on an included excursion. Known for its art, excellent beaches and fields of lavender, Hvar has been ruled in turn by the Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The island has caves that show signs of prehistoric habitation, whilst weather records consistently show Hvar as one of the sunniest places in Europe. B, L, D
Day 6 Hvar-Brac
Cruise across the crystal-clear water to Brac for an included tour that includes a wine tasting in the village of Nerezisce. In the afternoon you can take time out to explore independently, perhaps strolling the famous Golden Horn beach before returning to your ship for dinner this evening. B, L, D
Day 7 Brac-Split
Today your ship sails to the mainland where you’ll enjoy an included half-day tour of Split, Croatia’s second-biggest city. In the old town you’ll see the impressive UNESCO-listed Roman ruins of Diocletian’s Palace.

Day 8 Split-UK
