Croatia Small Ship Cruises FAQ’s

What are the best months to visit Croatia?

Croatia experiences both a coastal and Mediterranean climate, making the pre/post season months of April - May and September - October perfect for exploring and active holidays. The peak summer months of June, July and August are the hottest months and are ideal for travellers looking to swim and soak up the sunshine.

What is the best area to stay in Croatia?

Our cruises depart from Split or Dubrovnik. The coastal city of Split, or Dubrovnik, the home of Game of Thrones Croatia, are both beautiful coastal cities that make the perfect base before or after your Croatia cruise.

Is Croatia expensive to visit?

Compared to its Balkan neighbours, Croatia’s prices are slightly higher, however when compared to much of Western Europe, Croatia is considered very manageable. Popular tourist destinations including the likes of Dubrovnik, Split and Hvar will naturally have more elevated prices due to a higher demand, however you can often find affordable prices inland at less popular spots. For the most part, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how inexpensive Croatia is for travellers!

Where should I go in Croatia for a week?

With Croatia offering so many incredible destinations, it can be difficult to narrow down exactly where to go in Croatia for a week long vacation. Joining a Sail Croatia Cruise is the most hassle-free way to visit the best highlights Dalmatia has to offer in a single week.

Is English widely spoken in Croatia?

Although Croatian is the native language, English is widely spoken throughout, closely followed by German and Italian.
