Get aquatic along the Adriatic and soak up the sun, sea and history of this beautiful region
Set sail through the glistening waters of the Adriatic as you navigate the coastlines of Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Italy and Greece. From the fortified walls of Dubrovnik to the pretty Italian villages nestled in the hills outside Bari, soak up the mystery and storied history of Ithika, enjoy an on-deck barbecue off the coast of Dhermi, witness the 12th century architecture of Kotor and experience island life along the quaint cobbled streets of Corfu. Maximise your time swimming off little-known Albanian beaches and discovering World Heritage-listed towns by spending some nights in port and some sailing overnight, meaning you’ll wake up to a sunrise in a brand-new destination, waiting to be explored.
Kick-start your cruising adventure with incredible views of Dubrovnik’s city walls from the comfort of your elegant motor yacht.
Explore the winding streets and impressive cathedral of Kotor, a medieval town hidden in the Bay of Montenegro and protected by limestone cliffs
Dock in Bari and travel inland to the pretty World Heritage-listed towns of Matera and Alberobello, known for their white-washed historical dwellings.
Go for a dip off the coast of some of Albania’s most picturesque beaches and discover for yourself why this little-known paradise is becoming a hot holiday destination.
Explore the iconic Greek islands – from Corfu to Ithaki – the perfect place to soak up as much sun, sea and history as possible before the journey ends.
This is a small ship adventure cruise, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with up to 30 other people. The boat is spacious and comfortable, but it focuses more on the destination than on-board activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power, rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking. You’ll be visiting ancient sites and historical places, and at times you may have to cross cobbled streets and uneven ground, sometimes in hot conditions. If you have any concerns, please speak to your group leader before taking part.
If you’re concerned about seasickness, there are seasickness tablets on-board. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. Your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) on-board our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs. Handrails are always available.
For all our cruises in Asia and select departures in Greece, your home at sea is the M/S Panorama II.
