Best Time To Visit
Everyone's a first mate today as we trim our sails and set course for the island of Mljet. Your responsibilities include swimming, improving the tan and counting shades of blue. Also: a National Park with a natural waterslide when the tide is right.
In the spirit of adventure, explore Korcula's cobblestone alleys, take a spin through Marco Polo's house and then climb your way to the top of an old-school cathedral tower to savour a colourful cocktail. Take note: the ladder to the top of Massimo's cocktail bar is seriously steep, so watch your head!
Onwards to Vela Luka, a wide bay surrounded by coves that are covered with vineyards, olive trees, fig trees and pine. Tonight, keep your ears tuned for Klapa- an a capella style of singing that we may hear echoing from the town's restaurants. UNESCO says that a few Croatian friends singing about their love of wine is of significant cultural importance (so it'd be rude not to join in, right?).
Sit, stay and roll over for the ultimate holiday glow - then set sail for Vis, a relatively untouched island on the Dalmatian coast. A visit to the Blue Caves will be just as epic as the name implies, so make sure your waterproof camera is well and truly charged.
Optional activities: Visit Fort George.
This morning we head straight for Hvar, one of Croatia's glittering gems and playground to the likes of Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres and Prince Harry (just to name a few). Sip a mist-mash in one of the oldest cities in Europe (it's an actual thing and involves red wine and Fanta - best not ask) and rub shoulders with the rich and famous as you stroll the white stone plaza.
Off the mooring line and onto Stari Grad. A UNESCO listed town, Stari Grad is certainly pleasing on the eye. Tonight, we clink glasses and indulge in a feast fit for a sailor with an onboard dinner.
Sail to Split for the ultimate vacay finale. Yes, it's a UNESCO World Heritage city, and yes it has an abundance of Roman architecture. Finish off your day behind the 1700-year-old walls of the Diocletian Palace. If it's good enough for an emperor, odds are you'll rate it too.
Once you've finished sending off your fellow shipmates, talk to us about another eight days sailing the Croatian islands.
