Continue sailing to the town of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, one of the longest and sunniest of Croatia's islands. On arrival you will have some free time to explore the town at your own pace.Then in the afternoon, embark on a trip to the agricultural masterpiece of Stari Grad Plain which has remained virtually intact since it was created by ancient Greek colonist in the 4th century BC. At this UNESCO protected site you will have an opportunity to witness a beautiful sunset, delight on the local delicacies and feast on a traditional ‘Peka’ dinner at the Hora estate - all this whilst being surrounded by lush olive groves and fields of lavender.

Continue your journey to the island of Vis. Along the way enjoy a refreshing swim stop at the Paklinski islands and lunch before arrivingat Vis. Closed to the public until 1989, Vis has remained relatively untouched by tourism and development and so therefore has retained much of its charm and natural beauty. Spend an afternoon at leisure to experience this first hand, whether its visiting the Archaeological Museum or taking a leisurely stroll along the seaside promenade where most of the bars and restaurants are located. BL

Your first stop today will be the spectacular Blue Cave on the island of Bisevo. The cave’s natural underwater entrance creates a magical deep blue light that engulfs the interior. This afternoon arrive in Korcula Town for a walking tour that will take you through the narrow, cobblestone streets. Learn all about the interesting stories and legends of this town including tales on the life of Marco Polo. BL

Please note: The Blue Cave is only accessible with small boats through an entrance just 1.5m high so unfortunately it can easily be made inaccessible by bad weather and high waves.

Early in the morning cruise to the island of Mljet, famous for its stunning National Park and densely forested landscape. Anchor in the town of Pomena from where a visit to Mljet National Park is planned. Discover the park's two turquoise lakes, Veliko Jezero and Malo Jezero, meaning Great Lake and Little Lake. Board a small boat and visit the islet of St. Mary to see the Benedictine Monastery built during the 12th century. This evening enjoy a Captain’s dinner aboard the ship. BLD

Set off for Slano, a small town indented into a 2km long bay. From here, you start your food adventure by journeying to Ston, the gastronomic centre of the county. Visit an oyster farm where you'll learn how oyster and mussels are cultivated in this region and why they are so delicious. Discover for yourself with a rustic oyster and wine tasting under the shade of the trees. Return to the ship in the afternoon and sail to Šipan island, where you will have the evening free to relax and enjoy the sunset. BL

Arrive at your last port, Dubrovnik, also known as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic'. Once in Dubrovnik, enjoy lunch cruising alongside the famed city walls. Join a guided sightseeing tour of the UNESCO protected Old Town and discover why this is one of the most iconic and famous Croatian city. Add a visit along the ‘Stradum’, the completely pedestrianised main street in Old Town where you’re sure to find plenty of cafes, shops and restaurants to try out. You’ll soon see why it’s easy to lose yourself within the ancient city walls that has guarded the former republic for centuries. BL
