CRUISE BY CROATIA
Long, narrow Croatia has some 2,500 miles of Adriatic coastline, including scores of islands, so there’s more than enough to fill a wonderful week of cruising without having to go anywhere else. Travelling aboard a small ship is ideal, as they’re able to nose into handsome harbour towns and drop anchor in deserted bays.
Shearings Holidays (shearings.com) has launched five new itineraries on four ships, each sleeping up to a maximum of 40 and available until October. One week on the MS Arca, visiting Split, the Elaphiti Islands, Brac, Hvar, Bisevo, Vis, Korcula, Mljet and Dubrovnik, costs from £1,396pp, including flights, transfers, most meals and five excursions.
