With smaller ship Braemar taking you closer to destinations in Croatia and Italy, as well as Montenegro, you’re in for an unforgettable discovery of iconic sites and authentic experiences. When you visit Venice, not only can you see landmarks such as Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica, and explore the canals by gondola, but also enjoy more laid back taste of Venetian life in Chioggia. Elsewhere in Italy, there’s a visit to Sicily, time to delight in Trapani’s Baroque charms or taste famous fortified wines in Marsala; a glide past Stromboli Volcano; and scenic cruising through the Strait of Messina, with mighty Mount Etna in view. You’ll also get to delight in coastal scenery, waterfront charms and historic highlights of Crotone, Gallipoli and Monopoli too.

In Montenegro, scenic cruising tranquil waters into the fjord-like Bay of Kotor makes for a memorable introduction to the Adriatic, before you’ve time in UNESCO-listed Kotor to explore its medieval heart, learn of its history and see its centuries-old architectural highlights, and understand why it is one of our highest rated destinations. On the Croatian coast, you could tour to Krka National Park and witness the tumbling Skradinski Buk Waterfall from Sibenik, while the visits to UNESCO-listed Dubrovnik and Split are sure to be highlights of your Adriatic adventure. As you wander through these historic cities, amongst their ancient walls and traditional terracotta-topped buildings, you’ll discover a plethora of iconic sites; the Roman ruins of Diocletian’s Palace in Split is not to be missed, while a number of churches, monasteries and palaces await in Dubrovnik.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
