More New Small Ships In Dalmatia

Croatia holiday specialist Beyond Travel is offering an increased number of new, more upmarket, small ship cruising options in Croatia for 2014, to meet market demand from travellers seeking a more comfortable voyage along the Dalmatian Coast and islands.

Marketing manager Bryce Crampton said that the new more sophisticated vessels remained extremely good value but offered more comfortable public areas, modern cabins and other facilities appreciated by the 55-year plus market.

He added that the more mature market traditionally chose large ship cruising but many are now taking advantage of the new improved facilities provided by the small ship operators for a more authentic small ship cruise experience in Croatia.

Mr Crampon said, “A growing trend for this section of the market is to combine a small ship Adriatic cruise with a fully escorted land tour to form an extended itinerary through Croatia and into Krilo_Prideneighbouring countries such as Slovenia, Italy and Montenegro”.

“Generally, the ships carry 35 to 40 passengers, offering a friendly and relaxed atmosphere with stops daily in small historic ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships”.

“The cruises are 8-days with weekly departures throughout summer from Dubrovnik which combine easily with tours such as the 11-day Dubrovnik to Venice or the 9-day Dalmatian Sunshine tour with discounts up to $400 per couple available for clients combining select 2014 cruise’s and escorted tours”.

2014 cruises aboard the popular Adriatic Pearl start at $1450 per person. New for the 2014 season is the MB Krilo Pride which operates an eight-day roundtrip from Dubrovnik which includes visits to Mljet, Korcula, Hvar and Split with prices from $1985 per person including half-board, sightseeing tours, arrival and departure transfers, port fees and taxes.
