7 Night Cruise sailing from Dubrovnik roundtrip aboard Callisto.
Following the lead of their neighbours Croatia and Greece, Montenegro and Albania are emerging as some of the most exciting destinations in Europe. This 8-day small ship adventure cruise offers a fascinating insight into the past and the region’s rich cultural diversity. The best way to experience the Balkans is from the shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea. Board the Callisto, and cruise from the iconic city walls of Dubrovnik to the romantic and evocative Old Town of Korcula. Turn south for Montenegro, home to pristine natural landscapes and rustic towns oozing old-Europe charm. Continue the voyage to Greece, stopping at the olive-groved island of Paxos and the Ionian Islands’ Grand Lady, Corfu. In Saranda, Albania, find a slice of the Riviera, then dock near the secluded bay of 5th-century Kotor. Refreshing swim stops, local wine tastings and fortified towns, this Adriatic adventure has all the ingredients for a memorable journey.
Day 1 Dubrovnik

Day 2 Korcula
We sail early heading for Korcula. Enjoy a refreshing morning swim stop near Korcula * before arriving at Korcula port in the afternoon. There will be an optional walking tour of this magnificent town. Our guide will explain why the Old Town of Korčula is a masterwork of architecture and urban planning. The layout of the town streets resembles a fishbone in order to take advantage of the different winds, like a natural air conditioning system. Korcula is also known as the birthplace of the famous world traveller Marco Polo whose alleged birth place is right in the heart of the Old Town. Or you may wish to take an optional tour around Korcula town, and to the village of Lumbarda for a wine tasting.

Enjoy a morning swim stop before arriving in the coastal Montenegrin town of Bar around midday. This afternoon, take an optional sightseeing excursion to Old Budva. Leaving Bar, we will enjoy the views along the beautiful Montenegrin coastline, beach resorts, towns and countryside.
After arrival to Budva we have a short walk to the Old Town, which lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time turned into a peninsula. It is surrounded by ramparts originating from the XV century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls and towers. Inside the walls the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with monuments of different Mediterranean cultures that marked its development. Today Budva is a center of tourism and a city of theatre, festivals and celebrations.
At the end of the tour, we will have some free time to wander around the tiny streets, or swim at the nearby popular town beach.
On the way back to Bar, we will stop for a panoramic view over the luxurious St. Steven island. Once a fishing village on a rock in the sea, it is now a modern resort connected to the mainland.

Butrint is an important port from Hellenistic to Ottoman times and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated on the Straits of Corfu and surrounded by a picturesque lagoon, it is one of the most remarkable archaeological sites in the Adriatic Sea region, and a proud owner of remains dating from 6.ct BC. The Greeks, Byzantines, Romans, Venetians, Ottomans and many other wanted to own this little peninsula for its beauty and also strategic position. Following twelve years of archaeological excavations the site and its museum make it an exceptionally attractive place to visit.

The well preserved fortified walls of Kotor were built by a Venetian in 1420 and continued being strengthened until the 18th century. Enclosing the whole Old town, the 5 km long walls formed an unique fortification project which could resist attacks from the sea and survive long sieges.
Our tour includes a visit to Cathedral of St. Tryphon which was constructed in 1166 and built on the remains of a former temple from the 9th ct. We will see the remains from 14th ct frescos and the valuable treasury with both local and Venetian golden works (14th- 20th century).

Day 8 Dubrovnik

Considered a boutique cruiser, the Callisto offers the highest standards of comfort, safety and atmosphere on the Central American seas. Relaunched in 2015, the boat is one of the smaller in our fleet, with a maximum passenger capacity of 34 guests. This means we can get right in to where the larger cruise ships never will, and we don’t risk swamping the local port towns with tourists. It also makes our environmental footprint insignificant compared to that of the mega-liners. Less waste and less emissions means the Callisto is the greener way to cruise, without compromising on comfort or style.
The Callisto accommodates 34 guests in 17 cabins and a crew of 16. The boat cruises at the comfortable rate of 10 knots. The yacht’s spacious indoor and outdoor communal areas are decorated with rich fabrics, woodwork, antiques and fine works of art. There’s a cosy library located on the sundeck where you can relax in a deckchair with a book, and with a swimming platform off the stern, you can swim right off the boat.
No matter which cabin you choose to stay in, you’re sure to be in for a comfortable trip. Each room has an ensuite with a toilet, shower and basic amenities such as a hairdryer. If the sundeck’s getting too warm, you can stay cool in your cabin with individually controlled air conditioning and a mini-fridge stocked with water. Rooms all have a satellite television, power plugs, internal phone, and a safe box to keep your valuables.

Our name stems from the word ‘Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company. Since our inception, we’ve broadened our horizons and now offer small group journeys in over 80 countries across all seven continents, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track (without forgoing some of the comforts of home).
Introducing a new a style of travel – a premium cruise without the premium crowds. Think less on-board casinos and more island hopping along the Dalmatian Coast, Cyclades port stops for grilled octopus and fresh olives, or dropping anchor for a swim in some secluded Cuban archipelago. This is Peregrine’s small ship adventure cruising. Welcome aboard.
Conventional big ship cruising is all about life on the boat. What to eat, what to do, which show to catch. Adventure cruising is more about the destination: stopping at little islands the big ships can’t reach, exploring local markets and trying fresh produce, learning a place’s history and culture from local guides who know it best.
These journeys are designed to be low impact. That means there’s fewer passengers on-board, less stress on local communities, and each trip is carbon offset through a range of renewable energy projects. And while the big boats moor out at sea and ferry passengers to land by tender, we can sail straight into port. You can hop on or hop off as you like. It’s convenience and comfort, all in one.
