So you’re coming on a Sail Croatia Cruise – awesome! The thing to remember when packing your suitcase, is that unless you’re booked on a Premier or Premier Plus Ship, your Ensuite or Standard Ship’s cabin won’t be overly large as these are traditional Croatian Ships and storage is limited.

If you’re joining us from the UK or Europe, then we highly recommend you limit 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. 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.

  • Swimming-suits/board shorts
    We recommend that you pack at least 2 pairs of swimmers just in case.
  • Nicer/formal wear
    Even though you’ll be living in boardshorts or your bikini, it’s a great idea to pack something a bit nicer – for a club, or lovely dinner out.
  • Comfortable walking shoes
    Chances are you’ll be doing a fair bit of walking – especially if you’re on a Hike Croatia Cruise! Sometimes flip flops just won’t be enough on a decent walk!
  • Flip flops
    Thongs for our Australian passengers and jandals for our New Zealand passengers.
  • Light jacket
    Even though the weather in Croatia is predominantly hot, we advise you bring a jacket just in case it gets cool of an evening – or if you travel outside of peak season.
  • Sunglasses
    Not only do you have to look the part, you should bring your sunglasses to cut out the glare from the beautiful Adriatic Sea!
Personal items & toiletries
  • Sunscreen
    This one is a must – make sure you bring your own as it’s overpriced in Croatia!
  • Beach towel
    You’ll be provided with a bath towel, but it’s a great idea to pack your favoutite beach towel to use on the decks or the beaches.
  • Medication
    If you’re taking prescribed medication, make sure you bring it along and keep it in a safe place.
  • Your favourite book
    Looking for some downtime? There’s nothing better than catching up on your favourite book whilst cruising the Croatian Coast!
  • Camera
    Whether you use a smartphone or proper camera – make sure you have something to keep your memories of Croatia after you return home.
  • European power adapters
    All appliances require a double round pin type plug for 220 volts, AC, 50 hertz.
  • Money (Kuna)
    We highly recommend that you convert your local money in Croatia rather than at home, as the exchange rates will be much more favourable.
  • Travel insurance
    We highly recommend you buy travel insurance before you travel to Croatia.
  • Passports/Visas
    You will need to make sure you don’t need a Visa to travel to Croatia. Read here to find out if you need one.
Things to remember
  • Limit your luggage
    If you’re joining us from the UK or Europe, then we highly recommend you limit your luggage to one suitcase.
  • Only bring what you need
    It’s a good idea to double think about what to bring with you for your cruise. You’ll be spending most of your days in the water and out and about on the beaches of Croatia – so only pack what you can’t live without.
