Highlights

 

Cruising along the spectacular Dalmatian Coast in Croatia is one of the world’s most coveted journeys and there’s no better way to experience it than aboard a small cruise ship – officially making its maiden voyage in June 2019 – featuring state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. This 14 day Unforgettable Croatia tour has strictly limited availability thanks to its highly sought-after sail dates – in the middle of Croatia’s peak cruise season.

Dubrovnik, the beguiling coastal city famed for the fortified walls and limestone streets of its old town, is the starting point for this exclusive expedition. The first full day of the tour begins with a trip into neighbouring Montenegro to see the old town of Kotor and Our Lady of the Rocks near Perast. A transfer to Dubrovnik’s Gruz harbour then sees you become acquainted with your cruise ship. Meet the MV Ambassador, a brand-new 2019-built small cruise ship with the capacity for only 40 passengers, and beautiful cabins fitted out with air-conditioning, wardrobes, small sofa, porthole window and more. Following a welcome reception on-board the MV Ambassador, you’ll begin your discovery of Dubrovnik with a guided tour of the famous city gates.

Your cruise makes its first port in Slano, a traditional fishermen’s village, and then Ston, a town beloved for its medieval ramparts and pretty coastal outlooks. Both are known for their oysters and you’ll be able to sample some of these delicacies while here. Continue to the isle of Mljet to see its national park, home to salt lakes and St Mary’s Isle, and then Korcula, the birthplace of legendary explorer Marco Polo. It is then onto Bisevo, Brac island, the pristine Zlatni Rat beach, lively Hvar and, finally, Split. Your days on-board the MV Ambassador are spent exploring that day’s port town, making swim stops for you to paddle in the shimmering Adriatic Sea, lazing on a daybed atop the ship’s sundeck or mingling with other passengers in the bar area.

You’ll say adieu to the cruise ship and crew as you move back to the Croatian mainland and head inland to one of the country’s most photogenic natural wonders – Plitvice Lakes National Park. Have your camera charged so you can capture the beauty of these thundering waterfalls and turquoise pools. Continue to Zagreb, the Croatian capital city, to visit a local farmers’ market, walk the neighbourhood streets and feast on a sumptuous farewell dinner. 

 
 

Day 1: Australia  – airplane-takeoff– Dubrovnik

Depart Australia on your outbound Emirates flight, headed to Dubrovnik in Croatia.

Day 2: Dubrovnik

Dobrodošli! Welcome to Croatia! Your flight lands at Dubrovnik Airport and you will be met upon arrival and privately transferred to the hotel for check in. The remainder of the day is at your leisure, so you may take up the opportunity to relax by the pool or get out for a scenic walk along the promenade.

Day 3: Dubrovnik – Montenegro – Dubrovnik (B)

The first full touring day starts with an early breakfast at the hotel before the group sets out on a day excursion to neighbouring Montenegro. It features a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed old town of Kotor and the pretty coastal hub of Perast. The latter includes a boat ride to visit Our Lady of the Rocks, a man-made isle just off the coast. The group returns to Dubrovnik in the evening.

Day 4: Dubrovnik (B,D) cruise-icon

A transfer takes you to Gruz harbour where you get your first glimpse of the fantastic cruise ship that will be your home for the next seven nights. The MV Ambassador is fresh off the assembly line and is equipped with every luxury you need for cruising along the Croatian coast: beautiful contemporary cabins, passenger dining room and lounge, shaded sundeck with daybeds, and more. Drop your luggage in your cabin and then head back into Dubrovnik for a guided tour of the iconic city gates. This evening, there is a welcome meet-and-greet cocktail reception hosted back on the ship. 

Day 5: Dubrovnik – Slano – Ston (B,L) cruise-icon

See Dubrovnik’s cityscape from a watery vantage point this morning and take one last happy snap of this photogenic city before the cruise makes its ways towards the Elaphiti Islands. This majestic archipelago is the location of your first official swim stop. Enjoy a paddle in the azure Adriatic before drying off back on the ship and cruising to Slano, a picturesque hamlet on the mainland that is famous for its oysters. It is then onto Ston to explore this city’s medieval ramparts and a local oyster farm where you can sample this popular delicacy.

Day 6: Slano – Mljet (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Your voyage continues north as the cruise makes for the island of Mljet. Step off the ship for the walk to Mljet National Park, accompanied by your cruise manager. Discover the park’s salt lakes and even take a boat ride to St Mary’s Isle. This islet is set in the centre of the park’s largest lake and is home to an old-world Benedictine monastery, an abbey and a church dating back to the 12th century. You may also choose to hire a bicycle, scooter or kayak to further explore the park. Tonight’s dinner is served on the ship. 

Day 7: Mljet – Korcula  (B,L) cruise-icon

The ship makes an early morning departure and travels to Korcula, the island that happens to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. The ship will stop in a bay for lunch along the way. There is a guided walking tour on Korcula in the afternoon and you will learn about the ingenious design of the old town. 

Day 8: Korcula – Vis (B,L) cruise-icon

Depart for Vis after breakfast. Vis was a former Yugoslav naval base; a strategic stronghold thanks to its isolated position. See the main town, located on the island’s northern side, and the nearby remains of Issa, an ancient colony. Sample some of the local wines, visit the city museum or stroll along the scenic waterfront. 

Day 9: Vis – Hvar (B,L) cruise-icon

Stop at Bisevo this morning. This island is the setting for the Blue Cave, an extraordinary natural phenomenon. You may visit the Cave for a fee (please note this is weather dependent). From Bisevo the cruise journeys to Hvar, making a swim stop along the way. Lunch is served on-board while anchored off the Pakleni islands. Then step foot onto Hvar for a tour of the town and an introduction into locally-produced lavender products – a signature of the island. In any free time, keen walkers can head up to the hill-perched town fort for spectacular views across the Hvar harbour and surround islands. 

Day 10: Hvar – Split (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Make the most of a swim stop at Zlatni Rat beach (also known as the Golden Cape or Golden Horn) near the town of Bol on the island of Brac. Wander along the Zlatni Rat’s white-pebbled shoreline and then head into the quaint fishermen’s village to admire the local atmosphere. Return to the boat and then continue to Split. On arrival there is a guided tour of this beautiful city and its ancient sites and monuments. Learn about the magnificent Diocletian Palace and stroll along the marble-clad waterfront promenade. This evening is your final night on the luxury cruise, and there is a farewell Captain’s dinner served on-board.  

Day 11: Split – Plitvice Lakes National Park – Zagreb (B)

Disembark the cruise ship and say goodbye to your crew as you travel to one of Croatia’s most visited natural wonders: Plitvice Lakes National Park. Admire the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site with a guided tour, taking plenty of photos of its turquoise lakes and serene waterfalls along the way. The group arrives in Zagreb in the early evening. 

Day 12: Zagreb (B,D)

Get to know Zagreb, the gorgeous capital of Croatia, as you explore its neighbourhoods, the Dolac farmers’ market, and the streets of Kaptol and Gradec – the two medieval towns that were merged to form Zagreb in 1850. Feast on a farewell meal with the group tonight. 

Day 13: Zagreb  – airplane-takeoff – Australia (B)

Take the private transfer to the airport at the appropriate time and board the return flight to Australia.

Day 14: Australia

Arrive home today.
