GET ON BOARD

Irish Sunday Mirror - - TRAVEL - BY MARJORIE YUE

If sail­ing on a su­per-sized ship doesn’t float your boat, try one of In­trepid Travel’s new launched 2018 Ad­ven­ture Cruises and you can ex­pect to sail with an aver­age of 30 fel­low trav­ellers.

Us­ing boats that are smaller than their big brother cruise ships also means they can give tra­di­tional routes a wide berth as well as sail­ing to des­ti­na­tions tan­ta­lis­ingly out of the reach of the vast ves­sels. Plus there’s the bonus of be­ing able to spend more time on land.

Among the high­lights is an eight-day cruise across the Adri­atic and along Croa­tia’s stun­ning cen­tral coast, with a chance to try kayak­ing or go hik­ing around Pl­itvice Na­tional Park.

Fares start at €1,785pp and in­clude break­fast, five lunches, four din­ners and most ac­tiv­i­ties.

Or sail to the lesser known West­fjords of Ice­land, keep­ing a keen eye out for puffins and whales. The eight-day Wild West Coast itin­er­ary starts at €3,405pp in­clud­ing break­fast, six din­ners, three lunches and most ac­tiv­i­ties. in­trepid­travel.com
