    What To Expect

    Wander the streets of Dubrovnik’s Old Town until you reach the city’s old port. Here, board the replica of a 16th-century galleon for an evening of sailing, sipping, and savoring southern Dalmatian delights.

    With the sun setting on the horizon, lounge on the deck with your fellow passengers and take in the stunning views of the amazing Adriatic Sea, verdant Lokrum Island and, of course, the tall medieval walls that surround UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town of Dubrovnik.

    Sip a glass of bubbly and converse with your fellow shipmates, sharing stories about your time in the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic,’ as the city has historically been called. And then begin to feast on an onboard buffet, filled with locally made cheeses and meats, including cured prsut, the Dalmatian version of prosciutto. See See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

    Graze on your dinner as the boat cruises around Dubrovnik. Pass by verdant Lokrum Island, where some legends claim Richard the Lionheart was once shipwrecked on his way back from the Crusades in the Holy Land.

    Then, disembark at Dubrovnik’s old harbor, where the cruise concludes.

    Old Town

    City Walls; Fort Saint John, Fort Bokar, Fort Saint Lorence, Gradac Cliff, Lazareti, Fort Revelin, Island Lokrum.

    Nice boat and good views of Dubrovnik. It’s a cheap way to see the area from the water with a average meal thrown in.

    Lovely cruise
    Jacki_A, Jun 2022
    We had a lovely time on this sunset cruise. The boat arrived on time to the port and check in was quick. We were given a welcome drink of champagne. The boat was amazing. They served a nice dinner buffet. You get one free drink with dinner and you can buy more if you like. It was about 2 hours start to finish. I would recommend this tour for a relaxing evening on the water.
    Nice experience with fantastic views
    asjjahangir, Jun 2022
    The views from the boat were fantastic. It is worth taking this boat trip for sunset views around Old Town. However the food provided was a disappointment. Prior to the tour, I was informed via email that there would be an option for veg, meat or seafood menu for dinner (I chose meat). However an hour into the trip, the crew laid out a few dishes which was a mix of meat, salad and fish. When inquired, the crew informed me that these were the appetisers. As such I ate a minimal amount. Around 20 mins later, they cleared the dishes and placed dessert. I was then informed that indeed the dishes placed earlier was the main course. Maybe not the crew's fault, but the organisers could have clarified this matter beforehand.

    Great experience definitely one of the must do’s while in Dubrovnik! Very well organised and extremely good value for money.
    Worthwhile experience

    Research first to avoid disappointment
    Andrew_L, Jun 2022
    We didn't get the experience we expected, this was because while the food was good, there was nowhere comfortable to sit. We asked if a glass of Rose was available and the rather curt response was a flat NO. Having said this the views were stunning and the vessel impressive.
    Steve_R, May 2022
    Really enjoyable tour, the food was good and there was plenty of it. The staff friendly and helpful.

    Emma_S, May 2022
    The views of dubrovnik coastline from the ship were fantastic. We were picked up and dropped off at the same location. The crew were extremely friendly and the ship is well looked after.

    Great experience, definitely worth it
    John_G, May 2022
    We got to the harbour half hour before the boat docked & what a sight it was as it came round the walls... This is 1 impressive looking vessel! You feel slightly special as you board to your free welcome drink (& additional drinks voucher) with everyone on the dock taking pictures. The crew are really attentive and welcoming & the scenery as the sun sets would be hard to be matched! The buffet meal is plentiful & was a good mix for carnivores & vegetarians alike. My only complaint (& it is minor) is that it feels like a waste not to have the occasional commentary about some of the sights you pass but there is a nice romantic playlist instead
    Lovely sunset dinner
    Jan_M, May 2022
    Lovely trip our around the bay. Free glass of Prosecco, plus free drink token given on arrival. Food basic but very tasty. Chicken, fish, mussels in cous cous, rice salad, potato, cucumber, tomato, cheese and prucuito ham and bread. The sunset was lovely and the experience was relaxing.
    The views were amazing.
    Heidi_A, May 2022

    Melanie_C, Sep 2021
    I booked this as a birthday treat for my husband whilst in holiday in Cavtat. After spending the day in Dubrovnik we boarded at 6pm. The boat is gorgeous, staff were very friendly, everything ran smoothly and the food was lovely with a very good variety. Seeing the sunset was the best part of the evening. I would highly recommend.

    Wonderful Cruise and Fantastic sunset!
    GaryA_P, Sep 2021
    What a fun boat to take a leisurely cruise from the Old Harbor in Dubrovnik. Not crowded, smooth sailing and wonderful food was served by the crew. While the tour can't guarantee a perfect sunset, they sure came through on this day. Thanks for providing such a great time.
    Lovely experience!
    sofia_t, Aug 2021
    BRILLIANT EXPERIENCE! Truly a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' boat! BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED!! Would have given it 5 starts but for the dinner!!!! Suggest you eat well before OR as soon as you dock at many delicious restaurants all around! But...a an absolute 'MUST' especially for the beautiful sunset!!!
    Lovely way to start the holiday
    We booked this dinner cruise for our first evening in Dubrovnik and it was the perfect way to start the holiday. Great food, great scenery. The only disappointment was the sails were not open which would have really added to the atmosphere.
