How to Cruise Croatia Without Being On A Party Boat

How to Cruise Croatia Without Being On A Party Boat

Cruise past the party scene, and discover the real Croatia on an Explorer Cruise.

During the Croatian summer, the coast starts buzzing with excitement and nightlife which is why Dalmatia has recently become one of the favourite places for partygoers to visit.

Croatia is undoubtedly a stunning country – once it’s been discovered, you’ll never forget it. But if you’ve been put off the idea of a Mediterranean cruise because you think it’s too party orientated – then you’re in for a wonderful surprise…

You can cruise Croatia’s beautiful islands and historic ports without being on a party boat. But how?

Sail Croatia offers their Explorer Cruise which is officially marketed as the ideal cruise for “young professionals & young at heart travellers”. Basically, it enables you to experience the beauty of the Adriatic in luxurious comfort with a small number of like-minded people. You’ll avoid the party scene, but you definitely won’t be missing out on all the fun.

Let’s take a closer look at the Explorer Cruise and how it enables you to cruise Croatia, without the party scene.

Small Ship, But You’re Not On Your Own.

With an average of just 36 passengers on each ship, it’s easy to have some quiet time on an Explorer Cruise, but if you feel as though you’ve had enough “me time” for one day, then good company will never be far away. With large open decks, an onboard bar (and on some ships, even a jacuzzi), it’ll be easy to find a sunny spot to suit your mood.

Guests Relaxing

You’re In Control.

Whether you’re feeling active and want to spend your days exploring each of the historic port towns along the way, or you’d prefer to just catch some sun on deck, an Explorer Cruise gives you the control to decide how much or little you want to do – with no judgement from anyone else. Similarly, in the evening you might feel like visiting one of the many great bars or clubs en-route, or you might prefer a quieter evening on the boat – it’s all up to you!

Guests Swimming

Enjoy The Finer Things.

These boats are incredibly comfortable. If the image of a party boat makes you cringe, then fear not. Explorer Cruises use purpose built small ships packed with they type of luxury you’d expect on cruise ship. Enjoy your very own ensuite bathroom, air conditioning, expansive deck space with luxurious furnishings where you can take in sun-soaked views of the Adriatic. With a fully licence bar onboard you’ll never be caught without a glass of your favourite tipple to watch the sun go down.

Dining Area

Location. Location. Location.

Incredibly comfortable; yes, but to top it off, these small ships are the perfect size to get you to the best locations along the Croatian Coastline. Not only are they the ideal spot for a secluded swim, but they’re also perfect for getting great access in the ancient ports too. That means with an itinerary like that on an Explorer Cruise, you’ll always be in the best position to get in on the action, close to town. That gives you the time and freedom to explore, have adventures, discover new places and absorb local culture.

Ship Docked

It’s Nice To Be Looked After.

Having such a select number of guests onboard means the crew are able to be much more attentive. Each day, a quality continental breakfast is freshly prepared, followed by a three-course lunch and one of the evenings a Captain’s Dinner is held, bringing something a bit special to the cruise. It also gives you the opportunity to really get to know other guests onboard and take in some local entertainment and, of course, more local wine and food.

Ship Crew

Cruising the islands of Croatia is an amazing experience, and there are many different ways of doing it. The combination of comfort, convenience and unique experiences offered by a Sail Croatia Explorer Cruise is hard to beat though, especially for those wanting to cruise beyond the party scene and discover the real Croatia.
