What You Can Expect
The boat boasts comfortable and spacious communal areas, comprising an indoor bar, lounge, dining room as well as a spacious sun deck for soaking up those glorious Mediterranean rays. All cabins have en-suite facilities and you have a choice of a main-deck or lower-deck cabin.
After spending your first night in Dubrovnik, cruise north to the island of Korcula, before cruising south to the coastal town of Bar in Montenegro. Spend two nights at sea, followed by overnight stays (and daytimes at leisure) on the Greek islands of Paxos and Corfu. Spend a day getting to know the seaside town of Saranda in Albania, one more night at sea, and then finish up with an overnight stay in Montenegrin town of Kotor before cruising back to Dubrovnik.
Your cruise is totally independent, so all activities and excursions (where mentioned in the Itinerary) are payable at your own expense. Excluding Day 1 and 8, two meals each day are included on board your boat – a full American breakfast and then either lunch or dinner. Fun meals like a BBQ on deck and a Greek party night are part of the package!
Board your boat in the early afternoon and then leave your bags to enjoy a welcome drink with your crew and fellow passengers. Your boat remains docked in Dubrovnik overnight, so after getting acquainted with the boat, why not head out to explore? The city teems with sightseeing opportunities, and a stroll around its UNESCO-listed Old Town is sure to impress.
Return to your boat in time for your onboard dinner and then spend the rest of your night in Dubrovnik doing as little or as much as you please.
Overnight: Dubrovnik port
Day 2: Dubrovnik – Korcula – Bar (B, L)
Enjoy breakfast on board and then leave Croatia’s mainland behind, cruising north to the island of Korcula. After arriving in the early afternoon, hop off your boat and enjoy a swim followed by a BBQ on deck in the sun. One of the many ‘alleged’ birthplaces of the intrepid 13th-century explorer Marco Polo, Korcula is fascinating to explore with rich history to match its richly verdant landscape. Learn all about it on an optional excursion to Korcula Old Town, seeing the sights on a walking tour.
Enjoy dinner in Korcula at your own expense, and then cruise south to the coastal town of Bar in Montenegro. Spend your night at sea.
Overnight: At sea between Korcula in Croatia and Bar in Montenegro
Day 3: Bar – Paxos (B, D)
Relax over breakfast as you cruise into the waters of Montenegro, and then stop for a boat-side swim before docking in Bar port. Either spend the rest of your day exploring Bar town, or head out on an excursion with a guide to Stari Bar – Montenegro’s star attraction and Bar’s Old Town ruins. Located just 3 miles (5 kilometers) away from the port at the foot of Mount Rumija, Stari Bar is perched high on a hill and its winding streets and ruins make for a perfect afternoon of leisurely ambling. See medieval churches and admire stunning architecture from the Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman empires.
Return to Bar port in the early evening, and relax over dinner on board on your cruise south to Paxos in Greece. Spend your second night at sea.
Overnight: At sea between Bar in Montenegro and Paxos in Greece
Day 4: Paxos (B, D)
After breakfast on board, stop for a morning swim from the side of your boat, and then continue cruising to the tiny Greek island of Paxos in the Ionian Sea. A quiet island boasting endless vineyards and secluded beaches, Paxos is perfect for an afternoon of soaking up the sun in utter seclusion. Make use of the boat’s snorkeling equipment and explore the coves near Paxos’ port, or check out the waterfront tavernas for a taste of real Greece.
Dinner is served back on board your boat in the evening, and then the rest of the night is yours to spend doing whatever you please. Maybe take a nighttime stroll along one of its beaches or sample the sedate nightlife in the island’s capital town – Gaios.
Overnight: Paxos port in Greece
Day 5: Paxos – Corfu (B, D)
Cruise north from Paxos while enjoying your breakfast on board, and dock at the island of Corfu in the late morning. One of the greenest Greek islands that can be found, Corfu is a lush little paradise broken up with pretty Venetian-style towns that beg to be explored. So, why not do just that? Head out on a morning excursion to see the best of Corfu’s main town, visiting sites such as the Old Fortress, the Church of Agios Spyridon and Achilion – a 19th-century palace that was once the summer retreat of Empress Elizabeth of Bavaria. Alternatively, spend the day at leisure in Corfu.
Return to your boat in the early evening to enjoy dinner on board. Your boat remains docked at Corfu overnight, so after dinner, you can head out to enjoy Corfu’s legendary nightlife independently.
Overnight: Corfu port
Day 6: Corfu – Saranda in Albania (B, D)
Enjoy breakfast while cruising north to Albania, stopping at Saranda – just a mere stone’s throw from Corfu. With colorful houses stretching over the hillside and a charming waterfront promenade, Saranda is charm personified and you’ll get a perfect view of the town as you cruise into its port. The town’s biggest draws lie just outside of the center, so why not set out to see one of the best on an afternoon excursion? Visit the ancient archeological site of Butrint – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – with a guide and learn about the disasters that effectively cleared the city for five centuries. Alternatively, spend your day at leisure, perhaps relaxing on the scenic beaches near Ksmaili.
Head back to your boat at the pre-arranged time and then enjoy dinner as you start the long cruise north to Kotor in Montenegro.
Overnight: At sea between Saranda in Albania and Kotor in Montenegro
Day 7: Kotor (B, D)
While eating breakfast in the morning, cruise into the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro and see Europe’s southernmost fjord at its picture-perfect best. While referred to as a fjord locally, the bay is actually the remains of an old river canyon that once fed down from nearby Mount Orjen; framed by verdant mountains and exquisitely preserved medieval towns, the bay can easily be described as Montenegro’s highlight and deservedly takes a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
After docking in the medieval town of Kotor, enjoy a day of free time to explore or alternatively, go out on a guided tour, seeing Kotor’s Romanesque churches, the imposing St Tryphon Cathedral and the Maritime Museum of Montenegro -- where the country’s seafaring history is documented through a series of exhibitions.
Your boat remains at Kotor port overnight, enabling you to go out into town after dinner and enjoy the nightlife.
Overnight: Kotor in Montenegro
Day 8: Kotor – Dubrovnik (B)
Cruise north away from Montenegro, back to Croatia. Your 7-night cruise finishes at Dubrovnik port around mid-morning.
