M/S SPLENDID will be docked in Dubrovnik Gruž harbour where you can board during the entire day.

Welcome dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. The embarkation will be possible throughout the day; passengers arriving in the morning cannot enter their cabins before 1:00 p.m. but they can leave luggage on board. Captain will wait for all passengers arriving late at night and these guests will be provided with dinner.
Overnight in Dubrovnik, (D)
DAY 2 • SUNDAY DUBROVNIK – NATIONAL PARK MLJET
After breakfast our English speaking guide and coach will come to the pier. After an organized panoramic drive and photo stop of breath-taking scenery at a hill above Dubrovnik we will arrive to the historical centre of Dubrovnik, the famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage site, where your guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After city tour you will be left on your own to explore the city. At 12:00 we will have transfer to boat and lunch while cruising to Mljet National Park, arriving in the late afternoon.
Overnight in Mljet, (B,L)
DAY 3 • MONDAY NATIONAL PARK MLJET – KORČULA
This morning we have free to explore Mljet National Park (entrance fees are not included), to walk around the Great and Small Lake and Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century and, of course, to take a swim in the heart of National Park. Lunch on board and cruise toward the island of Korčula. In the afternoon arrive to Korčula town, on Korčula Island, city known as a birthplace of Marko Polo, the famous explorer. Our English speaking guide will do Korčula City tour, and walk us through narrow and cobbled streets. The rest of the evening is free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.
Overnight in Korčula Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 4 • TUESDAY KORČULA - VIS
Morning cruise to Vis Island where we expected to come after lunch with swim stop. Vis is a pearl among Croatian Adriatic islands, left untouched by the development of tourism for so many years - due to its strategic location on the open sea, it served as a military zone for many years. Beautiful beaches, and preserved nature, ecological agriculture and preserved traditional architecture are unique advantages of this unique Croatian island where we will spend afternoon.
Overnight in Vis Town, (B,L)
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY VIS – BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE - HVAR
Today is cruise to Island Bisevo with its Blue cave. The cave has its own natural entrance which is located below sea level, which required that it visitors dive deeply only to resurface into the cave’s mysterious blue depths. This natural phenomenon creates a magical effect of deep blue and shiny silver, mystifying her visitors. However, sometimes High Waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit, and this is a reason why entrance fees should be paid on the spot – if we have luck to visit it! After swim stop and lunch we will continue cruising towards the sunniest island of Croatia – the island of Hvar, along of the many coves and bays on the way. Hvar is one of the most popular, very attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point for the international jet set. Upon your afternoon arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you throughout the town introducing you to the history, culture and way of life on this island and explain how lavender was traditionally farmed on the Island of Hvar for centuries. Have an evening in Hvar free on your own to explore and dine around in one of numerous family owned restaurants.
Overnight in Hvar Historical Town, (B,L)
DAY 6 • TUESDAY HVAR – BOL – PUČIŠĆA
We start our day with morning departure towards Bol, said to have the best beach for swimming in Croatia named Zlatni Rat. (Golden cape). We will stop in Bol and enjoy this nice Dalmatian town for a walk, or to have a cup of coffee and take a swim till lunch is served on board. After lunch we will continue cruising towards Pučišća with refreshing swim stops on our way and lunch. Pučišća is the biggest village on the island of Brač an entirely different experience. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Damatia does terrain play such a compelling role as in Pučišća with its spectacular irregularity of the steep-sided natural harbour, its authentic Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience; the fjord like inlet meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills to join those quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća Quarry was exploited in the Antiquity; the reopening of the quarry took place in 1455, unused since Roman times. It was from this quarry that stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The Parliament house in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world. The only Stonemasonry school in Croatia is located in Pučišća where students carve sculptures from Brač limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries. We will spend night in this very quiet small town. Nightfall unifies the diverse features of Pučišća that have intrigued us by daylight
Overnight in Pučišća, (B,L)
DAY 7 • FRIDAY – PUČIŠĆA – OMIŠ - SPLIT
After breakfast we cruise across the Brač channel to Omiš, ancient town with city walls, fortresses and stone churches located at the delta of Cetina River with its wonderful beaches. In the past Omiš was for centuries a symbol of retaliation, courage and strength of the famous pirates against Venetian Republic. After a relaxed walk in Omiš we will have lunch. During afternoon hours we sail towards Split, our first and last stop. Split is the second largest urban centre in Croatia and the seat of the Split and Dalmatia County. It is traditionally considered to be over 1,700 years old. Since 1979 the historic centre of Split has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. The historical and cultural buildings are located inside the walls of the Diocletian’s Palace. Our English speaking guide will do afternoon Split City tour, and walk us through historical Diocletian’s Palace. After city tour you will be left on your own to explore the city and have intimate farewell dinner on your own.

Guests are obliged to follow ship rules (found in written form on the ship) especially with regards to bringing drinks on board. In case of inappropriate behavior Captain reserves the right in requesting clients to disembark.
DISCLAIMER: Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian ports, ships are moored side by side, making it necessary for the clients to cross from one ship to another with gaps in between ships in order to get to the shore. In such cases clients need to take special care when crossing and do this at their own risk. Crew assistance will be given to those needing and requesting it. Cruise not recommended for clients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility.
BEDS: Many cruise ships now have ‘flex-beds’, which can be moved together to form a Double/Queen size bed with 2 single mattresses on a combined base, leaving a small separation between the mattresses. Even a traditional double/queen bed mattress might have separate bedding on each side, such as 2 single duvets, rather than one large one. If this is an issue for you, please let us know before booking. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here to see how the booking process works: https://discovercroatia.com.au/how-to-book/
How far in advance do I need to book?
For our weekly Small Ship Cruises with guaranteed departures we suggest you book as early as possible (ie as soon as you start making plans to travel to Europe). All cruises are extremely popular especially during peak season, which is June and September. One-way cruises are particularly sought-after and tend to sell out first (even before they go on sale sometimes), so please speak to us first to ensure your cruise choice is available before booking any flight arrangements.
Escorted Group Tours with guaranteed departures are also best booked as early as possible to ensure your place on the tour, as spaces are limited to a set number of passengers. Once the tour is full that departure is closed for new bookings.
Independent tours (such as Island Hopping) are available most days of the week at any time of year, so if you're booking late these are a great option. They can also start or finish on any day of the week, so can be a great alternative to the Cruises (cruises mostly depart on Saturdays). You can check out our Island Hopper Tours and our active tours for some examples. If you can't find what you are looking for please make an enquiry on any of our tours and let us know what you need. We love creating custom tours with our clients.
What do the different ship categories mean?
We have most of our ship photos here: Ship Photos Database
If you have been quoted a cruise with a particular ship name, then that is the ship that you will be on (bar any unforeseen emergencies). If you are booked on a generic/standard A+Plus (PREM) or A:Category (ENS) or B:Category (TRAD) ship, then you will not know the ship name until the day of the cruise. All of these standard ships are in the photos database under their correct category, but we cannot tell you the exact ship name due to operational requirements as they are often shuffled about.
Deluxe (DLX or DLX SUP) cruises are always on specific ships and you will be given the name of the exact ship. These cruises have the word 'Deluxe' in their name on our site, but may also be called 'Elegance' cruises elsewhere.
Premium Superior (PRM SUP) - “Named” ship A+Plus cruises will also be on specific ships and you will be given the name of the ship before you book. If you are in any doubt which ship you will be on, please check with us.
"Regular / Generic/ Un-named / No name" (i.e. PREM, ENS, TRAD) cruise departures could be on any ship in that same category and some ships are older than others. We cannot tell you the ship name for those cruises and you will not know until the day you arrive to join the cruise. We also cannot guarantee a double bed on these cruises, as we do not know which ship, we do not know how many of each cabin type is on each ship. Please be aware that on PREM, ENS or TRAD ships you might be allocated a twin bed cabin on the day, even if you request a double bed.
Some ships are being newly built for the next season and therefore only have 'artists impression' type pictures. We will upload actual photos of the boats as they are finished and launched. Some may not launch until as late as June.
What do the different Ship Categories mean?
Ships WITH air-conditioned cabins and air-conditioned public areas (Deluxe and A+Category ships). All Deluxe, Deluxe SUP and Premium SUP are 'Named ship' departures where you know which exact ship you will be on before you book.
NOTE: 'Double' beds on DLX, DLX SUP, and PRM SUP might be 'flex-beds' with 2 single mattresses next to each other on a combined base. Many 'double' beds in Europe have separate duvets for each half of the bed, meaning that you have separate bedding even if there is one large bed or combined twin beds.
Deluxe Superior Ships (DLX SUP): There are a very small number of 'Deluxe Superior' ships from 2018. These Deluxe ships are slightly larger than a regular Deluxe Ship and some have VIP Balcony cabins. All cabins have ensuites and individual air-conditioning. All inside public areas are air-conditioned. Not all Deluxe Superior ships have balcony cabins. Only 3 ships in the whole of Croatia have balcony cabins, so they are rare and mostly booked out over a year in advance, even before they officially go on sale. Some Deluxe Superior ships are just slightly bigger than regular Deluxe ships, and there are no balconies on board those ones at all.
Deluxe Ships (DLX): All cabins have ensuites and individual air-conditioning. Deluxe ships are mostly new ships built within the last few years, many of them are being built each year. All inside public areas are air-conditioned.
A+Plus Category NEW Ships (Premium Superior Ships - PRM SUP): All cabins have ensuites and air-conditioning. These A+ ships are brand new, more spacious than the older ships and include a few excursions in their price. All inside public areas are air-conditioned, including restaurant and cabins. These are 'named ship' departures and cruises have 'Premium' in their name.
A+Plus Category Standard Ships (Premium Ships - PREM) (APlus regular/ generic/ standard): All cabins have ensuites and air-conditioning. These A+ ships are older versions, and some were built many years ago and have been renovated by adding basic air-conditioning units to the cabins. All inside public areas are air-conditioned.
Ships with no air-conditioning in the cabins, but with air-con in the restaurant/salon areas (A: and B: Category ships)
A:Category Ships (Traditional Ensuite Ships - ENS): All cabins are bunk beds, and have ensuite bathrooms. There are usually no double beds on these ships. Air-conditioning is available in the public areas of the ship such as the restaurant and/or salon only.
B:Category Ships (Traditional Standard Ships - TRAD): All cabins are bunk beds, and have shared bathrooms only. There are no ensuite cabins on-board and no double beds. Air-conditioning is available in the public areas of the ship such as the restaurant and/or salon only. These B:Cat ships are used only for 18-35s cruises.
Each ship belongs to one category only and has only one category of cabin (even though there are different decks). A couple of ships use a different nomenclature for cabin types and this can lead to a bit of confusion. Each ship has slightly different deck plans and number of cabins, but the maximum number of passenger cabins on any ship is 21. Therefore the maximum number of passengers is usually only 40 per ship (not including the crew and cruise staff). The crew have their own separate quarters which are not shown on the deck plans.
What do the different Cabin types and Deck levels mean?
Standard Cabins / Lower Deck / Under Deck / Classic Cabins: These cabins are all in the hull of the ship, and must be reached by an inside stairwell. These cabins have portholes only and the portholes are just above the water line. There are no opening windows in Lower Deck cabins. Some of the smaller, older boats only have lower deck cabins as the main deck is used for the public areas such as the restaurant and salon areas. Lower Deck cabins have the most privacy and are the quietest, especially in the busy ports like Hvar where occasional parties can be going until late at night on adjacent ships.
On Deck / Above Deck cabins: These are sold as 'On' or 'Above' Deck, which means you could be in either a Main Deck cabin or an Upper Deck cabin, depending on the deck plan of the ship you are allocated. Usually this is only used for the older ships, TRAD, ENS and PREM. You won't know until the day you join your cruise if you will be on Main or Upper Deck.
Main Deck Cabins: These cabins are on the deck that is closest to the water line, the deck where you board. On the new Deluxe Ships, the Main Deck is mostly used for passenger cabins. Some ships have the doors to Main Deck cabins on the inside, so only windows are on the ‘outside’ wall of the cabin, and some ships have the doors as well as windows on the ‘outside’ wall of the cabin. All walkways past the outside wall of the cabins are public areas. This deck occasionally also has the restaurant or salon area as well at the back of the boat. Not all ships have Main Deck cabins available, it depends on the ship configuration whether this deck is used just for the restaurant/salon areas.
Upper Deck Cabins: These cabins are on the deck above the Main Deck, and this deck often also has the restaurant or salon area as well at the back of the boat. Not all ships have Upper Deck cabins available, it depends on the ship configuration whether this deck is used just for the restaurant/salon areas. All walkways past the outside wall of the cabins are public areas. Most of the older wooden ships (A: and B:Cats) have Main/Upper Deck cabins, but very few of the new Deluxe Ships have Upper Deck cabins available, as their Upper Deck is used for the restaurant/salon areas in most cases.
VIP BALCONY cabins (very limited; only 3 ships have them, can get booked out up to a year in advance): A few (3) Deluxe Ships now have VIP BALCONY cabins available. Most of the VIP Balcony cabins will be on the Upper Deck, but not all. A Only 3 ships have Balcony cabins and there are only a few on each of those ships. First come, first served as they are quite popular and fairly limited. Please book early (up to a year in advance) if you want a Balcony cabin. The MV Infinity, MV Everglow and MV Adriatic Sun are the only 3 ships so far with any Balcony cabins. No other ships have balcony cabins, just those 3 ships out of the over 100 ships in Croatia.
Upper Deck / Restaurant / Salon: The Upper Deck (under the Sun deck) often has no cabins at all and the space is used for the Restaurant/Salon area and outside shaded public seating.
Sun Deck / Top Deck: The Sun Deck (uppermost deck on any ship) has no cabins at all. Most cruises will let you sleep on the sun deck on the sun lounges/deck chairs provided for relaxation purposes, though there are no real beds on the sun deck. Some Deluxe ships have a small jacuzzi on the Sun Deck, and provide shaded areas. The older A: and B: ships do not have shade on the Sun Deck, though shade is provided in the public salon areas on the main or upper decks.
If you are in doubt, please ask for the Deck Plan or look in the Ship Descriptions as the deck plan is usually in with the ship photos.
What is half-board? What meals are included on my cruise?
Half-board (HB): (Breakfast and lunch on all cruises) This means that 2 meals a day are usually provided, mostly it will be breakfast and lunch on cruises (B,L). Each cruise will have meals listed on the daily itinerary, so that you will know exactly which meals are included. Some lunches or dinners are swapped occasionally, so that you may enjoy a wonderful gourmet experience with your fellow travellers, such as a Welcome Dinner, or Captain’s Dinner (D) on a cruise. For the remainder of your meals you will be able to dine anywhere you choose and you will be responsible for the cost of those meals. Your Cruise Director will be happy to recommend a good value and trusted eatery nearby at every location, or you can explore on your own.
Full-board (FB) is occasionally offered on cruises as an optional extra, but we do not recommend you take the full-board option unless you are really sure about it. A lot of the joy of the cruise and tour experiences is to dine in local restaurants, ‘konobas’ (traditional pubs) and bars, so that you can meet the people who live and work there. Why come all the way to Croatia only to eat on-board for every meal? There are so many fabulous (and even some famous!) eateries. Get out there and taste them!
All ship descriptions on our website are sent to us by the cruise companies and we are not liable for any discrepancy in the listed features or services as we are not the producers of the marketing materials. We act as an agent only, we are not the end supplier and do not have access to visit every cabin on every ship and check every single feature before every departure. Thank you for understanding. Please see our full Terms and Conditions here.
All departures on specific ships are subject to any unforeseen incidences occurring before your departure. If that ship cannot be provided due to accident, emergency repair or similar, then a similar ship will be provided if at all possible, but please understand that there are few spare ships as they are all also being used for other cruises. We cannot guarantee any departure as the cruise companies themselves do not guarantee every single ship on every single departure as very, very occasionally there are issues that require repair or there's been some 'force majeure' beyond their control. This is why we recommend you have proper travel insurance to cover you for all events.
What is half-board ? What meals are included on my Tour?
Half-board (HB): This means that 2 meals a day are usually provided, mostly it will be breakfast and dinner on Escorted Tours. Each cruise or tour will have meals listed on the daily itinerary, so that you will know exactly which meals are included. Some lunches or dinners are swapped occasionally, so that you may enjoy a wonderful gourmet experience with your fellow travellers, such as a Captain's Dinner on a cruise, or a wine-tasting and lunch on an escorted tour. For the remainder of your meals you will be able to dine anywhere you choose and you will be responsible for the cost of those meals. Your Cruise or Tour Director will be happy to recommend a good value and trusted eatery nearby at every location, or you can explore on your own.
Bed and Breakfast (BB): This means that only breakfast is included in your holiday. Most of our Independent Tours include breakfast only, so that you are not beholden to going back to your hotel for lunch or dinner as you are going to be exploring on your own. We think that flexibility with lunch and dinner gives you the best option for exploring Croatia and experiencing the local culture and cuisine.
What type of transport is used on the Island Hopper Tours? Local ferries and vehicle transfers
Local ferries: Local ferries are used between the mainland and the islands where possible. Most of these ferries are fast ferries (high speed catamarans). Our Island Hopper Tours include all ferry tickets, as well as delivery of the ferry tickets to your hotel, when we come to pick you up to take you to the ferry port. In some towns, where some hotels are in the pedestrian zone close to the ferry port (like Hvar), then you will be met at the ferry and directed to your hotel, with luggage assistance if required. If your hotel is outside the pedestrian zone you will be met at the ferry and taken to your transfer vehicle, with luggage assistance if required.
Transfers: Most Island Hoppers have private airport transfers included, and private transfers to/from the ferry ports on the islands. Some transfers will be shared transfers if there are others going to the exact same hotel at the same time and it is a short distance.
How fit do I need to be for my holiday?
Relaxation/cultural cruises and tours: On-board your cruise ship, you will need to be able to negotiate gangways and stairs and be able to step from ship to ship as the cruise ships are moored next to each other sideways and sometimes you need to step across to the next ship. You will be walking mostly on the cobblestone streets through the iconic cities and towns of the region. The excursions are best-suited to those who are capable of walking on uneven surfaces as many old cities and towns have limited totally flat surfaces that can accommodate wheelchairs or walking-frames. Please contact us to ask about your specific circumstances, as we are happy to help plan for your needs as best we can. Assistance will be provided on cruise ships to help you navigate getting on and off, but there are a few limitations. Please ask.
Cycling tours: Although almost completely flat this cycle tour is graded easy to moderate as the daily distance ranges between approximately 15-50 km. You will be biking mostly on the dedicated cycle paths alongside canals, rivers and through the iconic cities and towns of the region. This tour is well-suited to those who have never taken a cycling holiday before as it is flat and predominantly traffic-free and you also have the option of skipping the cycling and relaxing on board.
What happens if I can't attend an excursion?
It is possible to relax at your hotel, on the tour bus or on the boat at any time.
What happens if I can't cycle or hike a stage on an active holiday?
For cycling cruises: If you don't want to cycle it is possible to relax on the boat as it moves to the next port of call.
For cycling and hiking tours: If you don't want to (or can't due to illness or injury) cycle, hike or walk a stage, then we will make arrangements to have you transferred to the next stop on your itinerary so that you can continue with your holiday. Prices for transfers vary widely, so pricing will be provided on an 'as needed' basis only.
What equipment do I need?
Relaxation/excursion cruises and tours: You will need comfortable walking shoes, clothes for relaxing, your swimming costume, and a sunhat. Most cruises are fairly relaxed and casual clothing is fine for all meals, though you may want to take one nice outfit depending on where you wish to dine onshore.
Cycling cruises and tours: You will need comfortable sports shoes, comfortable clothes for cycling, waterproof jacket and trousers, a helmet and a sunhat. We supply a detailed packing list with your information pack.
