THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF ADVENTURE

EXCELLENT SAIL ON THE LIBERTY

“We sailed with a group of friends on the Liberty from Split to Dubrovnik. It was an amazing experience with Lara and the Liberty crew and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who is thinking of doing it. Our cabin was much larger than I expected and the food and Liberty team on board were excellent. Croatia is a beautiful country and we had an amazing time exploring!”

- Sally, America.
BRILLIANT WEEK

“The boat was fabulous with lovely rooms and excellent en suite facilities. The crew were excellent, friendly and responsive. Our guide really added value to the trip with a great sense of humour and relevant information about each stop. I only wish it was twice as long. Thank you Sail Croatia.”

- Prue, Australia.

Rafters will be dropped back to Makarska later in the afternoon to join the ships for the evening. Makarska nestles under the massive peaks of the Biokovo mountain range, with Mt Jure being the highest seaside peak on the Mediterranean.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are Explorer Cruises?

Explorer cruises are great for young professionals and young at heart travellers looking to experience the true beauty of Croatia. There is an emphasis on sightseeing and relaxing, whilst still giving you the opportunity to explore the nightlife in Croatia each evening should you wish to!

What time do cruises start/finish?

All Explorer ships depart from Split or Dubrovnik on a Saturday at 13:00. All ships arrive at their final port on a Friday afternoon, and check-out is between 8am and 9am on the following Saturday.

What are the cabin arrangements?

Our Explorer ships consist of either a Twin or Double bed, ensuite and air-conditioning. Twin or Double bed cabins are confirmed during the booking stage, so please let us know your preferences. On some ships, we also have Triple cabins available. Triple cabins consist of a double bed and a single bunk, and we provide a 10% discount per person.

What's the difference between Above Deck and Lower Deck cabins?

Above Deck cabins are on the main deck of the ship or just above it. Lower Deck cabins are in the hull of the ship. There are pros and cons to both - Lower Deck cabins are often cooler and quieter at night, as you do not have many travellers walking past your cabin as much as the Above Deck cabins. Above Deck cabins offer more natural light and ventilation. Each ship is unique and therefore the layout varies from ship to ship. Please note: On some ships, the Above Deck cabins are located across two levels, i.e. located on the main deck and on a higher deck level.

I am travelling by myself, is there a single supplement?

If you prefer to have your own cabin, you can pay a single supplement which is 50% of the one person price. Alternatively, we can match you with another solo traveller of the same sex on-board the ship!

What age/nationality are the passengers?

Explorer cruises have a wide age range of adults onboard. A typical Explorer cruise will usually have a mix of couples, young professionals and 'young at heart' travellers, usually aged from mid 20s to mid 60s. We recommend a minimum age of 15 and upwards onboard for our Explorer Cruises. We find this age upwards works well for the other customers onboard the ship and find that often older teens will enjoy many aspects of this cruise. Mainly English-speaking travellers join us on our Explorer Cruises. Travellers are typically from Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK & South Africa

What food is included?

Breakfast and a 3-course lunch are included daily on our Explorer cruises. Breakfast is usually continental style, with additional warm food such as eggs. Lunches are usually 3 courses, with a soup/salad starter, meat or fish-based main course and fruit/cake for dessert, prepared by your onboard cook. A Captains Dinner is also included in Explorer Cruises. All other evenings, we encourage our clients to explore the local towns, experiencing local food and wine! Of course we can offer suggestions on the best places to go!

Can I bring food and drink onboard?

You cannot bring food and drink onboard the ship, except for items that fill specific dietary requirements. Each boat has its own bar and drinks consumed onboard must be purchased from here. You have unlimited access to the onboard water cooler during the salon opening times. We recommend bringing a re-usable water bottle with you onboard, and filling this up before the salon closes for the evening.

Are there any local payments that I need to be aware of?

A local payment of 30 Euros per person is payable onboard your Sail Croatia Cruise. This payment incorporates port fees and tourist taxes throughout the week and is subject to change.

What type of luggage should I bring?

If you’re joining us from within Europe, we highly recommend limiting your luggage to one suitcase; however, we understand that this might not be possible for international travellers who are flying in just for the cruise, or on extended trips. In most cabins, you will be able to store bags under the bed; however, in the case of excess luggage, please ask check-in staff to give you additional information about possible storage.

Will I get to visit the Blue Cave as a part of my cruise?

A visit to the Blue Cave in Vis is dependant on weather conditions and your itinerary. If conditions allow, an optional visit to the Blue Cave will be offered. This activity is not a part of your booking with us and therefore Sail Croatia shall not be deemed responsible for any damage, loss or dissatisfaction related to the Blue Cave visit.

Am I able to use the jacuzzi onboard 24/7?

You’re welcome to relax in the onboard jacuzzi throughout your cruise. Please note that the jacuzzi may not be available at all times due to conditions such as electricity consumption, fresh water usage onboard and weather conditions.
