Day 4: Mljet to Polače and Sipan Island
On your third day, continue onto Polače, where you will have the chance to try out the water toys on board or kayak through the azure waters of this National Park. Anchor in the sheltered bay and have lunch at one of the local restaurants, before wandering back to look at the number of ancient ruins that still remain. Have a go at fishing or simply sit back and relax on your aft deck before continuing to Otok Sipan Island, the largest of the Elaphiti Islands. The active fishing village of Sipanska Luka is welcoming and hosts a few small bars and taverns; spend your evening here enjoying a refreshing cocktail on the docks.

Your adventure south continues to the magical walled city of Dubrovnik. This iconic Mediterranean hotspot has something for everyone; follow the The Game of Thrones trail, sample authentic Dalmatian cuisine in the local Konobas and find authentic souvenirs for the whole family.

Day 6: Dubrovnik to Cavat
Cruise to Cavtat, a charming town southeast of Dubrovnik, is filled with an eclectic mix of old and new architecture, as well as lovely bays and beaches. Unlike bigger Croatian towns, it is not flooded with tourists, although it retains its feel of an exclusive retreat with many cafes, bars and restaurants dotted along the cobbled streets. Head to the Café Posejdon for a sundowner before dining at the Bugenvilla, which serves modern European dishes and has a very reasonable 3-course menu!
Day 7: Cavat to Kotor
Spend your final day cruising through the unmissable bay of Kotor. This canyon like fjord offers mesmerising vistas from every angle, so make sure you have your camera ready.
