By the time we sit down for dinner, you will feel bonded with the group and excited about all the places we will visit! 
 
Day 2: Hvar to Korčula. Indulge in a lazy morning on the sundeck, before filling your plates for breakfast… we could get used to this! Familiarise yourself with the refreshing sea views and everchanging nature with a book in hand or while chatting with your new friends. Dig into an optional barbecue lunch, where you can tuck into meats, vegetables, salads and Croatian fries prepped to perfection. Once we arrive in Korčula, the afternoon and evening are yours to explore its fortified walls, variety of beaches and mesmerising Old Town. 
 
Day 3: Korčula to Dubrovnik. After breakfast and lunch onboard, we’ll arrive in Dubrovnik for the afternoon. While you’re welcome to explore Dubrovnik by yourself, you can also join us for an optional walking tour led by an expert local guide who knows all the secrets hidden in its walls. Tonight’s an amazing chance to explore Dubrovnik’s nightlife scene inside the Urban District, but don’t worry if partying isn’t your thing. Dubrovnik is spoilt for choices when it comes to high-quality restaurants, bars and cafes! 
 
Day 4: Dubrovnik. Ready for an entire day to explore Dubrovnik? There is so much you can do today, from exploring the winding streets of the Old Town to visiting iconic Game of Thrones filming locations like the Jesuit Steps. If you’re in an adventurous mood, then why not join us for some optional kayaking around the city walls? Everyone will be eager to share their stories from today, so tonight will be an exciting evening onboard!
 
Day 5: Dubrovnik to Trstenik. En route to Trstenik, we’ll sail past the enchanting Elafiti Islands. After breakfast and lunch onboard, we’ll arrive in Trstenik as the sun sets over this beautiful village. This evening, we have an optional vineyard visit and a lively evening on deck planned. Visit a family-run winery with a 300-year tradition, before joining us for the Captain’s Dinner. Dig into a delightful three-course meal featuring gorgeous pasta dishes, while sharing a fun time to remember with the group! 
 
Day 6: Trstenik to Makarska. Today we’ll leave Trstenik behind in search of Makarska. After swimming in the open sea, we’ll arrive in Makarska and give you free rein to explore today. From the lively Old Town to the breathtaking beaches and Biokovo mountain range, Makarska’s natural beauty is unbelievably diverse. Whether you’re in a beachy mood, curious to check out Makarska’s variety of hiking trails or explore the nightlife, enjoy a free afternoon and evening! 
 
Day 7: Makarska to Split. This afternoon, we’ll visit the extraordinary Diocletian’s Palace: a UNESCO World Heritage site that’s bursting with life. Afterwards, there will be an optional walking tour of Split with a historical twist; learn all about the influential women who shaped this city, from authors to activists. Then you can tag onto a supplementary farewell dinner back inside the Diocletian’s Palace! Tonight we’ll toast to the end of our trip and celebrate our final night out as a group.
 
Day 8: Trip ends. Doviđenja Croatia! Enjoy a final breakfast with your group before checking out of your cabin and saying goodbye to our boat that has taken us across the Dalmatian coast.

As this trip starts at 10am, we recommend that travellers arrive in Split the day before and arrange an extra night of accommodation in a hotel, hostel or equivalent. Once you are booked onto the trip, our team is happy to help you with this. Airport transfers to and from SPU airport are not available, but we can guide you in the right direction.
 
Your trip finishes on day 8 in the morning in Split, after an included breakfast. 

Accommodation
 
7 nights’ accommodation is included on this trip. You will be staying in cosy and air-conditioned double or twin-share cabins which have an ensuite bathroom. There are two boarding options to choose from on this trip - below deck and above (at an additional cost). Here’s the difference:
 
Below deck - these rooms are a few extra steps away from the action, meaning that it is quieter and cosier with a porthole window. 
 
Upper deck - fit with larger windows and easier access to the deck, the upper deck is perfect for anyone who wants to be immersed in the stunning sea vistas and ocean breeze.
 
Meals
 
7 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and 2 dinners are included in this trip. Almost all of our included meals will be onboard prepared by our professional chef; these meals will feature fresh and locally sourced ingredients. From wholesome breakfast & lunch buffets to set dinners, you’ll get to know your group in no time with our family style of dining!
 
Croatian cuisine offers a wide range of seafood, meaty and vegetable dishes. There must be something in the Mediterranean soil because the locally-grown fruit and vegetables truly taste amazing here. From squid ink risotto to ćevapi (minced meat sausages) and stuffed peppers, Croatian food can taste like a hybrid between Italian, Slavic and Turkish flavours. Don’t forget to try ajvar: a roasted red pepper and aubergine sauce perfect for dipping fluffy or toasted bread into. 
 
Please let us know of any dietary requirements prior to your trip’s start so that we can cater to your needs and ensure that you have an enjoyable time. 

This trip is designed for travellers between the ages of 18 to 35.
