Adriatic Cruise Itinerary
Fly into Venice, then head to the port to board your Adriatic cruise ship, Norwegian Star. Unpack and unwind in your cabin, then head out onto the deck to watch as Norwegian Star slips away from Venice this evening.
Day One: Fly to Italy
From a distance, beautiful, walled Dubrovnik emerges from the wooded Dalmatian Coast like a floating medieval fortress. Seen up close, it's a living museum. See the Sponza Palace, St Blaise's Church, and Europe's oldest pharmacy in the city's Franciscan monastery, or take in the views across the city and the surrounding coastline from the ramparts that surround the city.
Day Two: Cruise to Dubrovnik
Stunning Montenegro welcomes Norwegian Star today. See the Bay of Kotor - Southern Europe's largest fjord - and explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor itself.
Day Three: Cruise to Montenegro
The small port of Katakolon offers the chance to head inland to the remarkable sanctuary at Olympia - home for over a thousand years to the ancient Olympic Games. The remains of the great Temple of Zeus still dominate the site, and you can still enter the ancient stadium through the vaulted tunnel from the main sanctuary and think yourself back 2,500 years.
Day Four: Optional Olympia day trip
Join today's shore excursion to Athens and discover the ancient city's many wonders - from the iconic Acropolis and the ruins of the Parthenon to the elegant Temple of Athena and the great Erechtheion. You'll have time to explore at leisure before you return to the ship.
Day Five: Optional Acropolis guided tour
Spend today relaxing and enjoying Norwegian Star's excellent facilities as she cruises back into the Adriatic.
Day Six: Day at leisure
Today you'll discover Croatia's historic, vibrant second city, Split, where highlights include the colourful Old Town and marketplace, and the crumbling ruins of the palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian.
Day Seven: Cruise to Split
Early this morning, Norwegian Star will cruise back into Venice Lagoon and you'll disembark, returning to the airport to board your flight home.
Day Eight: Fly back to the UK
