TUESDAY OPATIJA – RAB (L, T)
Check in from 11:00h . Departure at 13h towards Rab, known as the “island of love” with an old town of the same name. Join us on guided city tour and see the medieval walls and the famous four towers (and maybe climb one of them later!) together with palaces, churches and squares. There’s a slight Montmartre feel with many artists painting and exhibiting out on the streets. Legend has it that local nuns created a special Rab cake for a visiting Pope and we will sample this after the tour. The recipe remains forever secret.
WEDNESDAY RAB – ZADAR (B, L)
After breakfast we head for Zadar, the oldest university town in Croatia with an amazing heritage and where history looks you in the eyes: The Roman Forum from the 1st century, St Donat church from the 9th century - the most famous medieval Basilica and the city’s symbol, the mighty city walls, over 30 churches. Museums and former noble families’ palaces and villas in the old town. In recent years Zadar has added a touch of cool with the famous Sea Organs and “Greeting to the Sun” light installations, both located on the city's waterfront. Watch the fabulous sunset from here. Guided city tour.
THURSDAY ZADAR – KRKA WATERFALLS / ŠIBENIK (B, T, D)
Wine and waterfalls! Cruise towards Skradin then board our coach. First stop is the famous Bibich winery for wine tasting and light tapas lunch. Back in Skradin we walk through the Krka Waterfalls National Park and visit “Skradinski Buk”. Jaw droppingly beautiful, this is the most popular part of the waterfall area. There are 17 waterfalls, with cascades up to 100 m wide, and the Krka river tumbles 45.7 meters. A never-to-forget experience is swimming under the falls so bring your swimming things and enjoy the crystal clear fresh water. Šibenik, is almost in the very central part of Croatia’s Adriatic coast and is our afternoon destination. Explore the glorious old town, the cultural monuments and possibly the most famous one here, the UNESCO listed Cathedral of St James. Wander and discover the historic core and waterfront. Some good boutique shopping too. Dinner on board.
FRIDAY ŠIBENIK – SPLIT (B, L)
We continue south to Split, Croatia’s second largest city where Roman Emperor Diocletian built himself a retirement palace now under UNESCO protection.

Due to specific mooring conditions and requirements in some Croatian ports, Katarina Line 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.
Katarina Line and the captain of the vessel reserve the right to change and modify the route due to weather conditions as well as conditions in the ports visited.
