Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Spilt

Depart on your flight to Split today. On arrival, we'll transfer you to the harbour where your ship, MV Moonlight and its crew are waiting to greet you. Gather with your fellow passengers to enjoy a welcome cocktail, followed by a delicious evening meal on board. The ship will be docked in Spilt overnight.

DAY 2 Korcula

For a small country, Croatia produces a huge amount of olives, and the families of your captain and crew grow them in their home village. As we cruise to Korcula we'll learn all about the process of making olive oil and enjoy a tasting.
We'll arrive after lunch, so we'll step ashore and stretch our legs. The island is the reputed birthplace of the famous adventurer Marco Polo and it boasts atmospheric streets watched over by the majestic St Mark's Cathedral.  You can join us on an optional guided walking tour or you can make your own discoveries during free time, before heading back to the ship. 
This evening if you'd like to try some Dalmatian specialities, join our optional guided walking tour of the village of Zrnovo which includes a dinner of local delicacies.

Day 3 Dubrovnik

Today we sail to Dubrovnik, where you will have plenty of time to explore this amazing city and learn about its colourful history. Take a stroll through the beautiful Old Town, where local people chat outside their homes and the narrow streets are lined with cafés, shops and restaurants. You could choose to walk around the magnificent city walls and take in stunning views of the Old Town and Adriatic Sea. If you'd like to see the city from a different perspective, why not take to the water and kayak beneath the city walls on our exciting optional excursion. 
There are lots of wonderful places to eat in Dubrovnik and the fresh local seafood comes highly recommended. This evening is yours to explore what's on offer in the city's restaurants and to have dinner wherever you fancy.

DAY 4 Dubrovnik

You're going to visit one of Croatia's most stunning cities today, Dubrovnik. Soak up its beauty on a guided tour of the Old Town and a cable-car ride up Srd Hill, which offers amazing views. There's so much to see here, so during a free afternoon perhaps stroll along the famous Stradun to the former Rector's Palace, now a museum. Or visit the Franciscan Monastery, which houses the oldest pharmacy in Europe.
Back on board the ship tonight a special Captain's Dinner gives you a great excuse to dress up.

DAY 5 Mljet

After lunch on board, we'll arrive at one of the most attractive of the Adriatic islands, Mljet. Why not join us in an optional excursion exploring its impressive national park, which is a beautiful combination of saltwater lakes and dense forest. Architectural highlights include a Franciscan monastery and a charming church.

DAY 6 Hvar

You'll want to be on deck as the ship approaches Hvar – the views are absolutely stunning. Step ashore in the main town, also called Hvar, for an optional walking tour, or perhaps enjoy lunch here before returning to the ship. Next, we head to the tranquil island of Solta, stepping ashore in Stomorska. This fishing village is famed for its fleet of ancient wooden ships originally used to transport the island's wine and olive oil to the mainland. ​

DAY 7 Split

Our final port of call is Split, the second-largest city in Croatia. Together we'll explore during a guided walking tour, with the Diocletian's Palace a stunning highlight. One of the world's most impressive Roman monuments, the palace houses an assortment of restaurants, bars and shops within its ancient walls. We'll visit a market selling fresh produce, and then you can spend the rest of the afternoon exploring at your own pace.
Back on the ship, there's a lovely farewell evening planned

DAY 8 Split/UK

​After disembarking the ship this morning, we'll transfer you to Split airport for your flight back to the UK.
