Cruise focus: Central Dalmatian coast

Few locations in the world are as awe-strikingly beautiful as the Central Dalmatian islands and the coastline of Croatia. Encompassing the breathtaking Skradinski Buk, the stunning historic town of Sibenik and the characteristic streets of Trogir, there really is only one way to experience this location – by cruise ship.

Specifically, the smaller vessels offered by Seafarer allow access to a number of ports dotted around the Dalmatian islands and the Croatian coast that simply cannot accommodate large cruise ships. These allow not only for the opportunity to visit new and exciting destinations, but also for the chance to swim in the distinct rocky bays that make this part of the world so instantly identifiable.

Then there are the unique atmospheres of the charming places you'll be able to explore. How about enjoying the locally famous wine Barbic in one of the small cafes of Rogoznica? Or exploring all that is left of the Roman Forum and the Church of St Donatus in the city of Zadar? There is an incredible degree of culture here to be discovered, and it's all so very different to anything else you'll find in Europe.

Now that you can be sure of being suitably entertained during your holiday, what about that other all-important aspect – that of the weather? The Seafarer Central Dalmatian Cruise runs from April to October and you can expect it to be warm and sunny throughout the trip – perfect for those dips around the coastline.

That just leaves one element – that of transportation. After flying out to Split, you'll be escorted to your cabin aboard one of the traditional motor sailers of the Katarina Line fleet. While these carry just 24 – 36 passengers each, you can expect a spacious sun lounge, a saloon with dining area and plenty of room in your cabin.

So if you want a holiday that's big on things to do, great weather and a personal touch, this is the cruise for you.
