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

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.
You’re welcome to relax in the onboard jacuzzi throughout your cruise. Please note that the jacuzzi may not be
