CRUISE ITINERARY

Day 1, Saturday: Rijeka – Rab

Between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm, embarkation at the port of Rijeka. If you are coming by car you can drive into the port from 10:00 am. Our service team will then direct you to the garage and transfer you back to the port. After embarkation our guide will greet you with a welcome drink, and you will have a chance to get to know the crew and your fellow passengers. After a snack on board we weigh anchor and head off for the island of Rab. After a voyage of about four hours we call in at a secluded cove, where you will for the first time be able to dive into the beautiful waters of the Adriatic. Dinner on board in the cove before proceeding to the town of Rab, where we arrive at about 8:00 pm for an overnight stay. The old town of Rab with its striking bell towers extends along a narrow and rocky peninsula, surrounded on two sides by water. Three roads run through the old town – the “Low Road” (Donja ulica) with its cafés and bars, the “Middle Road” (Srednja ulica) with boutiques, souvenir shops and ice cream parlours, and the “High Road” (Gornja ulica), which leads to the four churches with their bell towers. (L, D)

Day 2, Sunday: Rab – Insel Pag – Olib

After breakfast there will be time for a short stroll or another relaxed cup of coffee at one of the cafés in the port. At about 10:00 am, we depart from Rab for the island of Pag. There follows a break of several hours for bathing in one of the coves and lunch on board. We then weigh anchor once again and set a course for the island of Olib, arriving at around 7:00 pm. The island, together with Silba and Premuda and several smaller uninhabited islets, forms an archipelago on the border between Dalmatia and the Kvarner Gulf which belongs officially to the city of Zadar. Olib has only about 150 permanent residents, who mainly earn their living from olive growing and a little agriculture. In recent years, the islanders have returned to some traditional ways, including the ancestral extraction of sea salt without salt works and the use of seaweed to make cushions and mattresses. There follows dinner on board and overnight stay in Olib. In the event of an unfavourable wind (Bora) the overnight stay will be in Mandre on the island of Pag. (B, L, D)

Day 3, Monday: Olib – Silba – Ilovik

At about 8:00 am, we depart from Olib and head off on a short cruise to the Bay of Sveti Ante on the island of Silba. There follows a break for bathing until about 5:00 pm and lunch on board. At around 7:00 pm we arrive at the island of Ilovik and drop anchor in the small harbor there. The small island, only 5.5 km2 in size, is characterised by Mediterranean macchia, evergreen forest and olive groves. The place itself is bathed in every imaginable colour of the widest possible range of flowers, oleanders and palms. Ilovik is therefore also rightly known as the “flower island”. There follows dinner on board and an overnight stay. (B, L, D)

Day 4, Tuesday: Ilovik – Mali Lošinj

After breakfast we head to the island of Lošinj, which is not only renowned for having 300 cloudless or only slightly cloudy days per year but is also covered with dense pine forests. With a little luck we may be able to watch dolphins playing in the waves, since the waters around the island of Lošinj are home to more than 160 dolphins registered with the “Adriatic Dolphin project”. We then set sail for a secluded cove of the island of Lošinj with crystal- clear waters. There’s lots of time for swimming and sunbathing until about 4:00 pm, broken up by lunch on board. We then proceed to Mali Lošinj, where we arrive at about 6:00 pm. There follows dinner on board and an overnight stay. (B, L, D)

Day 5, Wednesday: Mali Lošinj – Martinšćica

We depart from Mali Lošinj after breakfast and cruise to the neighbouring island of Cres, which is connected with the island of Lošinj at Osor by a swing bridge. The island of Cres, with an area of 405.78 km2, is exactly the same size as the island of Krk. Cres and Krk thus share the honour of being the largest Adriatic islands. Striking features of the island include the endless olive groves and countless flocks of sheep. It isn’t for nothing that lamb is regarded as one of the specialities of the island of Cres. Once again a beautiful bay awaits us where we spend the better part of the day and also take lunch. Today’s destination is the peaceful little village of Martinšćica on the island of Cres, where we also have the opportunity after dinner on board to enjoy moonlit nude bathing. Overnight stay in Martinšćica. (B, L, D)

Day 6, Thursday: Martinšćica – Valun

Departure after breakfast, with the aim – and how could it be otherwise? – of spending the sunny day in one of the numerous coves. Today’s destination is the fishing village of Valun on the island of Cres, where the popular Austro-German television series “Der Sonne entgegen” (“Toward the sun”) was filmed in the mid-1980s. The day is rounded off by the Captain’s dinner and an overnight stay in Valun. (B, L, D)

Day 7, Friday: Valun – Rijeka

Our last day in the beautiful island world. We leave Valun and drop anchor one last time in a bay about half an hour’s voyage away. After lunch and what will by then have become the customary break for swimming and sunbathing, we once again set a course for Rijeka, where we arrive at about 5:00 pm. There follows dinner on board and an overnight stay in Rijeka. (B, L, D)

Day 8, Saturday: Rijeka

After breakfast, disembarkation until 9.00am. (B)
