Itinerary + Map

DAY 1 Dubrovnik
Welcome to Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic! Your Venice Express cruise tour commences with an arrival transfer to the port, where embarkation begins at 18:00. If you arrive prior to this, you may explore this enchanting city on your own or simply relax before boarding the cruise. Once onboard, settle into your cabin and unwind for the night.

DAY 2 Cruise: Dubrovnik - Mljet
In the morning, cruise further north to the Island of Mljet. Mljet National Park encompasses five types of forest, many species of birds and two deep lakes, Veliko Jezero (Big Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake). Join the Cruise Manager for a stroll to the famous salt lakes in the Mljet National Park. Alternatively, you can rent bicycles, scooters, or kayaks to explore the National Park or island on your own. In the evening, enjoy Captain's dinner on board.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch and dinner

DAY 3 Cruise: Mljet - Hvar
Enjoy a swim stop in the morning then continue cruising whilst lunch is served on board. Arrive into the charming seaside town of Hvar in the afternoon. With eight centuries of architecture and history, Hvar is a favourite holiday destination for those who visit Dalmatia. On a walking tour, visit significant historical sites such as St. Stephen's Square and Cathedral, and the Hvar Arsenal with the theatre built on its first floor (the first municipal theatre in Europe). Above the town is the impressive fortress Fortica offering magnificent views over the bay and Pakleni islands. This evening in Hvar is at your leisure, so take in more of the Old Town at your own pace and perhaps dine in one of the bustling local restaurants.
