Unforgettable Adriatic Cruise

Dalmatian Coast Cruises ­ Pearls of the South Dalmatia Cruise

Dubrovnik-Dubrovnik aboard M/S Emanuel

8 days / 7 nights

Day 1 · Dubrovnik / Slano

After the embarkation MS Emanuel at 2.00pm we are going to start our Dalmatian coast cruises and soon will stop for a short swimming break to refresh ourselves. Our first harbour on this wonderful cruise Dalmatia will be Slano – small fisherman town in the bay of the same name. Overnight in Slano.

 

Day 2 · Slano / Korcula

This morning, Emanuel Dalmatian coast cruises past the Peljesac Peninsula – where you can view hilltops clad with vineyards and fruit trees – and to the island of Korcula. Berth overnight in the main town, also called Korcula – typical medieval walled Dalmatian town, rich in art and culture and believed to have been the birthplace of the great explorer Marco Polo.

 

Day 3 · Korcula / Hvar

Today we are continuing our cruise towards the island of Hvar, the sunniest Croatian island, also known as Croatian Madeira. Upon our arrival we anchor outside the entrance of harbour Hvar. There we will have our lunch on board and later opportunity to swim in
crystal clean sea. Later we transfer by local boat to Hvar town where we will meet our local guide.
“I know paradise now, I know Hvar,” goes a local saying. A walk along the waterfront promenade and through the Old Town of Hvar reveals a wealth of historic medieval and Renaissance buildings as well as lovely yachts and other private craft.
Fine art, including paintings by Old Masters and ecclesiastic treasures of precious materials, can be found in the collections of the Franciscan Monastery and the treasury of Hvar Cathedral. This evening we will have dinner ashore at the nice Restaurant situated near
the promenade. There will be free time after dinner for shopping or further sightseeing before returning to our boat at 10.00pm to spend a peaceful night at anchor in the bay.

 

Day 4 · Hvar / NP Mljet

This morning we sail for the island of Mljet, one of 8 Croatian National Parks with lovely pine forests and jewel­like lakes. We sightsee here, taking a boat cruise on the lake to the ancient church of St Mary. Today, you will spend a day in the nature and you can use it for recreation–rent a bike, kayak, and canoe or just swim and wonder around in a splendid and peaceful environment of the National Park. Overnight in National Park Mljet and inish day 4 of our Dalmatian coast cruises.

 

Day 5 · NP Mljet /Elafiti Islands

After breakfast we depart NP Mljet for a quite bay on the island of Jakljan for a relaxing swim before sailing into Elafiti Islands – a small archipelago consisting several islands west of Dubrovnik.
The biggest is Sipan, and the group includes Lopud and Kolocep (Kalamota). They attract many tourists with their beautiful scenery and sandy beaches.
Overnight in one of these beautiful islands.

 

Day 6 · Elafiti Islands / Dubrovnik / Gospa od Skrpjela /Kotor

Early this morning, we set sail for Dubrovnik-to do the custom procedure to get the permission to sail to the ancient town of Kotor – Montenegro.
About midday we are going to enter into the impressive fjord landscape of the Bay of Kotor and it’s divided into straits, and chalk cliffs tower above it. On one of the widest spaces in the fjord are two small islets. One of them, Gospa od Skrpjela, was created by a bulwark of rocks and has a church that was built back in 1452 on old sunken ships and houses a range of artworks.

Early afternoon we are planning to be moored in the town of Kotor – like the Gulf of the same name – is both a cultural and natural World Heritage Site. The Illyrians discovered this port around 2,300 years ago. Its deeply indented fjords and the shelter afforded by the bay make it a strategically significant location. Kotor’s history was then immortalized in stone over 350 years under the protection of Venice. The walled old city, with its beautiful squares and narrow alleyways, seems like something out of the romantic Middle Ages. We are going to overnight in Kotor.

 

Day 7 · Kotor / Dubrovnik

Depart early morning for Dubrovnik – the pearl of the Adriatic.
Dubrovnik is a breathtaking sight, entirely surrounded by massive grey walls of stone, interspersed with four gates, three forts, five bastions and 14 square towers. The “Pearl of the Adriatic” contains a treasure-trove of medieval art and architecture that has earned it a designation as a UN World Heritage Site.
The Dominican and Franciscan Monasteries are beautiful examples of Romanesque–Gothic architecture and other monuments of significance
include the Onofrio’s Fountain, the Rector’s Palace, the Sponza Palace and several fine churches. A stroll along Stradun—the Old Town’s wide pedestrian promenade—allows you to discover Dubrovnik’s many fine shops, cafés and boutiques at leisure.
Don’t miss a chance to take the walk at the top of the wall surrounding the city for beautiful panoramic views of this fascinating city on the Adriatic.
After lunch we will join in on a City Tour of Dubrovnik. On the east entrance of Dubrovnik City Walls ,”Pile Gate”, we will start our walking tour along the most famous Dubrovnik Street – Stradun.
Tonight we enjoy special farewell dinner and musical entertainment as we prepare to say goodbye to MS Emanuel.
