If you want to get away with a small group of friends, yearn to escape from well-travelled holiday routes or simply prefer the atmosphere of smaller, quieter tours, a small-cruise ship could be exactly what you need.

Board a ship small enough to slip into tiny harbours as you explore the undiscovered corners of your chosen destination. Cruise through warm, blue waters to stunning beaches and beautiful ports, and make the most of opportunities to discover idyllic, hidden coves often inaccessible on bigger ships.

Despite its size, you'll find there's plenty to do on a small ship. Swim from the boat into idyllic bays, snorkel in perfectly clear waters, feel the breeze while relaxing on deck and step ashore to visit wonderful ports and harbours. Enjoy the serenity of days at sea in the sunshine, sample local cuisines and take in the scenery as you arrive at each new port. Watch the crew land a fish and have it on your plate minutes later, spend relaxed evenings socialising with the your fellow passengers and the crew, and perhaps witness a dolphin racing alongside the boat in the early-morning sunlight.

Whether your small-ship cruise takes you to the coasts and islands of Croatia and Dalmatia, around Kefalonia and the Ionian Islands on the west coast of Greece or into the Aegean on board a Turkish gulet, it's sure to be a unique and relaxing holiday.

Book a small-ship cruise with Newmarket Holidays, and embark on a big adventure on a small ship.
