Four Reasons Small Ship Cruising Is Top Dog In The Dalmatians

It’s no wonder the Dalmatian coastline is the hottest place to cruise right now. With translucent blue seas and a lot more than 101 Dalmatian islands it’s a truly wonderful place. But if you want to make the most of cruising these waters you wouldn’t want to do it on a big ship. This sort of island dodging trip is much more suited to small ship, or Mega Yacht, cruising. We’d like to give you four great reasons why.
Take a look at the wonderful walled city of Kotor, Montenegro..
#1. Getting you close-up and personal
The true beauty of this coastline lies within its myriad of small islands. To enjoy them at their best, even if sailing by, you need to see them in close-up – and that’s something that big cruise ships simply can’t do.

It’s not just the view en route that matters. In these old medieval ports of call, with their many cultural influences from Venetian and Byzantine times, you want to moor up right against the quayside as close to the ancient centres as you can. A Mega Yacht can take you there.
This is where you'll embark from, the gorgeous and historic Dubrovnik aka "The Pearl of the Adriatic..."
#2. A ‘small-is-beautiful’ Croatia and Montenegro itinerary – new for 2017
Mega yacht cruising shows you the best of all possible worlds. Our new itinerary for summer 2017 may start in bustling Dubrovnik but quickly get you to more out of the way places like Rab, Sibenik, Hvar, Korcula and Kotor.

Along the way when we fancy swim we simply ‘heave to’ in some secluded bay and splash around in the wonderful warm and clear waters. It really is a quite magical experience. [

Go the places the big ships can't get to and really feel part of the destination. We stop in small bays and right in the centre of towns...
#3. A concern for the environment
This Dalmatian coastline has a particularly fragile beauty – the fact it’s a bit more challenging to cruise means it hasn’t been a major popular tourist destination until quite recently. Even now, as small ship sailors, we are still able to explore areas that are comparatively unknown.

Hopefully the somewhat complicated island seascape will keep it that way. We guarantee you that our vessel has the highest possible rating for being environmentally friendly. We know how damaging big ship cruising can be to local environments and how disruptive they can be to local culture. Small ship cruising is sustainable cruising.
On a Small Ship Cruise, you get the authentic feel. Whole towns change to account for big ship tourists, with a maximum of 54 guests you are able to really experience these smaller towns.
#4. Small ship, big comfortsThe Sailing Cruiser Panorama is big enough to have crossed the Atlantic on several occasions, but small enough to be the perfect vessel to make the most of these island-studded coastal waters. She only has 25 cabins and carries a maximum of 54 guests along with 18 crew. She offers the highest level of creature comforts, the food is magnificent and the service impeccable.

With no on-board swimming pool, if you want to swim, you do so in the crystal clear waters in idyllic bays, just pop down the steps... We think this is the best way. Not the 'people stew' you might find on a huge cruise liner's pool.
You’d be barking mad not to put this top dog on your 2017 shortlist

Make 2017 the year you discover, or rediscover, small shop luxury cruising.
