Explore the Iconic Sites of Croatia and Italy on a Handcrafted Small Ship Sailing with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in 2022

11th February 2021 – Set sail to the lands of the Adriatic and uncover the treasures of Croatia, Italy and beyond with a brand new cruise to be released from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines 2022 programme tomorrow (Friday, 12th February).


Small ship Braemar will set sail on this 27-night Adriatic adventure in October 2022, designed to showcase the well-celebrated icons and many hidden gems that Croatia and Italy have to offer, from architectural delights to natural showstoppers, plus scenic cruising aplenty.


Martin Lister, Head of Destination Experience and Itinerary Planning at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:


“The Adriatic is a real treasure, rich in history and culture all ready to be explored. From the walled cities of Split and Dubrovnik and the fortress city of Kotor to the canals of Venice and Chioggia, there are many tales to be unravelled.


“Architecture aside, there are also many natural wonders to be enthralled by, from the cascading Skradinski Buk Waterfall of Croatia’s Krka National Park, just a stone’s through from Sibenik, to scenic cruising by Stromboli, a still-active volcano which juts from the Mediterranean, and of the fjord-like Bay of Kotor in Montenegro.


“What makes this cruise even more exciting is that so much of it is made possible by Braemar’s smaller size, allowing us to sail much closer to the heart of these incredible destinations and visit places that would otherwise not be accessible.”


Details of this sailing are as follows:


Braemar’s 27-night M2230 ‘Discovering the Adriatic’ cruise, departing from Southampton on 23rd October 2022. Prices start from £4,199 per person.
