You make another stop in the delightful bay of Trsteno, before reaching the village of Budva. Over 2,500 years old, it is considered to be one of the oldest villages on the entire Adriatic coast. Take advantage of the day's end to wander through the streets of Budva and discover its churches. Dinner and night at anchor.

The captain casts off in the morning and heads for Bar, where you will anchor in Lucice Bay for lunch before continuing your journey northwards along the Montenegrin coast. During the crossing, you will make another stop for a swim in the peaceful Maljevik Bay, where you will discover the ruins of an ancient town. Arriving in Bar in the late afternoon, you will have the evening to stroll through the town and admire the Orthodox church of Saint Jovan Vladimir and the palace of King Nicolas Acke (now a museum). Dinner is at your leisure, and you can sample the local fish and shellfish specialities in one of the many restaurants in the port. Overnight in port.

    Fantástica experiencia!

    Ha sido nuestro bautizo en este tipo de cruceros y la verdad que ha la experiencia valió la pena. El barco, fantástico (cabina número 4), la tripulación espectacular!! Todos ellos fantásticas personas,lo hicieron todos fácil y agradable. El itinerario maravilloso... Solo pongo un notable a la comida, no estuvo mal, pero esperábamos mas ( variedad y calidad ). Es importante que en este tipo de cruceros se informe si hay niños abordo, nosotros somos un matrimonio de mediana edad y hemos agradecido mucho que el resto de pasajeros fuera todo adultos. Enhorabuena a la compañía y a globe sailor, estamos muy satisfechos y repetiremos seguro
