Travel Tips for Croatia Cruises & FAQ

Small ships are unique and different compared to big ocean-going vessels. They are large enough to be relevant but small enough to navigate their small ports. They offer a more personal experience with a crew that values your views and opinions, and the itineraries always showcase the location's culture, history, and personalities. Each vessel has less than 40 guests, so you receive personal service and attention that large cruise ships can't match. Many of these ships can navigate narrow waterways, medieval cities, and ports, allowing you to explore without crowds.

Small Ship Cruising is all about the destinations, which means on a typical day, the vessel sets sail after breakfast. It includes a stop in the morning for a swim. Lunch is typically served in the ship's restaurant from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Additional swim stops often occur in the afternoon before the ship arrives back in port. Once ashore, the guests will typically depart for a guided tour. The guided tours usually last 90-120 minutes before guests return to the ship. As the small ships dock directly in the Old ports, they can get on and off at any time they want

The best time for Croatia cruises is form spring to autumn - cruises operate from May to October. In these two months the cruise prices are slightly lower, while the peak of the season are August and September.

Depending on the size, most ships have between 5 and 7 crew: the captain, chef, a couple of wait staff, a chambermaid, and two sailors.

The majority of cruises include half-board accommodation. That means two meals daily are usually provided, mostly breakfast and lunch on cruises. On a cruise, meals are usually listed on the daily itinerary so that you will know exactly which meals are included. The cruise manager may change some lunches or dinners so that you can enjoy a wonderful gourmet experience, such as a Welcome Dinner or Captain's Dinner. Lunches are served three-course, often including soup, pasta, seafood or meat, and a salad. Dinners included on your trip will be similar to lunches. For the rest of your meals, you will dine anywhere you choose on shore and are responsible for the cost of those meals. Your cruise manager will happily recommend a good-value restaurant nearby at every location; you can explore on your own! Please note that different cruise categories include various levels of catering services so that inclusions can vary from those listed here. Please check your specific cruise info carefully.

Guests are kindly asked to inform us as soon as possible (at least 60 days in advance) of any dietary preferences, such as diabetic, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, etc. The cruise team will make reasonable efforts to accommodate special dietary requests. However, it is important that you inform the cruise manager at the time of booking and throughout your journey.

The number of other passengers on board with you will depend on the size of the ship you're cruising on and can vary from 30 to 40.

There is usually an international mix of guests from all over the world on board – Scandinavia, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Spain, and Italy … It will be a great way to meet people worldwide and make new and long-lasting friendships! Most of the Deluxe cruises will be for mature couples, solo travelers, and small groups of friends/family. Most passengers on these higher-standard cruises will be 35-70 years old. Some Deluxe cruises don't allow children at all. Some do, but there is no guarantee there will be other families onboard with children around the same age. It is a possibility you will end up as the only family.

Croatia is a part of the Schengen area, so visitors from many countries, including the USA, Canada, and Australia, do not need a visa for tourist visits of up to 90 days. However, checking current visa requirements before planning your trip is best.

Most cruises start from Split, Dubrovnik, Zadar, or Opatija. Split, Dubrovnik, and Zadar has its international airport. If you're starting from Opatija, the nearest airport is in Pula. Still, you can also fly to Zagreb, Ljubljana, or Venice.
