What Health and Safety Measures Will be In Place in Light of COVID-19?
What is the Mini Elegance Cruises?
Sail Croatia takes the health and safety of our guests and staff seriously and as such we will be implementing
measures onboard our ships to limit and prevent the spread of the virus. In line with Government guidelines,
our staff members have been trained to adhere to strict Health and Safety procedures and policies until
measures can be relaxed.
Upon advice from the Croatian Institute for Public Health, please expect the following measures to be in place
throughout your cruise:
- Check-in will be conducted outdoors in a specially designated area
- All ships will be thoroughly cleaned daily, as well a final disinfection process occurring prior to guest
- Staff will wear appropriate PPE when working around our ships and guests. This may include masks whenever
distancing guidelines and gloves whenever touching surfaces
- Hand sanitizer will be available on all ships and is required to be used whenever boarding
- Social distancing measures will be in place in accordance with government guidelines
- There will be spaced seating for meal services and longer service of meals
Due to the unique nature of the space on each ship, risk assessments will be conducted that are specific to
each layout and additional measures may be implemented onboard to cater for each space.
Whilst we will endeavor to do our very best to reduce the spread of COVID-19, please recognise that there is a
clear risk of the spread of the disease whilst on holiday. Our aim is to keep our guests safe and Croatia free
of the spread of the virus. We kindly ask for your support throughout this process. Our measures will continue
to be updated in line with best practices and Government guidelines. If you have any questions, a member of
our Sales Team will be able to assist you.
What are the departure/arrival times?
The Mini Elegance Cruise is tailored to be a shorter version of an Elegance Cruise; our most luxurious cruise type, aimed at
couples and mature travellers looking for a mix of sightseeing and relaxation. These cruises sail on a 3 day Split - Dubrovnik one
way route, or 4 day Dubrovnik to Split one way route, from April to June. The Mini Elegance Cruise operates on our top of the
range ships, offering the highest level of luxury and comfort onboard.
Are transfers between the airport and the port included?
The 3 Day Split - Dubrovnik route departs on a Sunday at 1pm from Split, and finishes in Dubrovnik on Day 4 at 3pm.
The 4 Day Dubrovnik - Split route departs on a Wednesday at 5pm from Dubrovnik, and finishes at 9am in Split on Day 5.
What ages are onboard the ship?
As part of your Mini Elegance cruise, transfers are included between the airport and your hotel, or straight to the ship on the
start day of your cruise. Transfers from the ship to the airport are also included on the last day of your cruise. Please advise
your flight details (flight number, arrival/departure time) at least 5 days before departure by emailing our Reservations Team on
[email protected] Once we have this information we will be happy to arrange these for you.
What are the cabin arrangements?
The minimum age onboard the Mini Elegance cruise is 18. If you are looking for a Sail Croatia experience with children younger
than 18 years old, you may be interested in our Private Yacht
What is the difference between Above Deck and Below Deck cabins?
Cabins on the Mini Elegance cruise are our most luxurious and spacious cabins, consisting of 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. Each cabin is approximately 10-12 square meters (including the ensuite).
I am travelling by myself. Is there a Single supplement?
Above Deck cabins are located on the main deck of the ship and may have internal or external access. The Lower
Deck cabins are situated in the hull of the ship and are accessed via stairs from the main deck down into the
hull. The Lower Deck cabins are slightly more affordable than the Above Deck cabins, however they are usually
slightly larger in size as there is no walk-way around the outside. They are also often cooler and quieter in
the evenings. The main benefit with the Above Deck cabins is that they are on the main or upper deck, easily
accessible without having to use the stairs!

What meals are served onboard?
If you are travelling on your own and wish to have the cabin to yourself, a Single Supplement is applicable, which is 50% of the
one person price. In Above Deck cabins we will allocate you a cabin with a Single Supplement. If you are happy to share the cabin,
we can match you up with another independent same-gender traveller in Lower Deck cabins.
I am a vegetarian or have a special dietary request - do you cater for me?
Each morning the onboard cook will prepare a buffet breakfast, complete with hot and cold dishes. A traditional three course lunch
is prepared by the onboard cook, and one evening meal is included on all the Mini Elegance Cruise; a Local Village Dinner (3 Day
Itinerary) or a Captain's dinner (4 Day Itinerary). On the other evenings, we encourage you to explore the local towns and
experience Dalmatian cuisine. Your onboard Tour Manager will be able to offer suggestions on the best places to eat at each
Are there any local payments that I need to be aware of?
Our onboard cook is able to cater for vegetarians and travellers with special dietary requests. If you are allergic to certain
foods, please specify in advance what this includes. We will note this so the cook can be prepared.
What type of luggage should I bring?
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.
Am I able to use the jacuzzi onboard 24/7?
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.
How does Sail Croatia contribute to sustainable tourism?
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
Sail Croatia is committed to sustainable tourism and eco-friendly practices. To find out more on what we’ve
achieved so far and our goals for a sustainable future, check out our sustainability report here.
