Time of my Life

The service, the experiences, the boat.... this was an absolutely amazing week. I’ve travelled to many places in the world but this has been the best to date. Would highly recommended the VIP Navigator Cruise to anyone wanting to party and experience the best of Croatia in style.

Absolute Best Travel Experience I've Ever had!

The VIP Navigator cruise absolutely delivered, the standards were so high in every area. The boat was heaven, private ensuite bathrooms, AC, room service daily. The meals on board were amazing, great quality. The bar & bar staff were always equipped and ready.

Our host made sure that the whole boat was content and happy at every point. I could not be happier with my Sail Croatia experience, the only sad time was when it ended!

Waz, travelled on VIP Navigator as a couple
Vacation Exceeded Expectations!

My sister and I took the VIP Navigator cruise from Split to Dubrovnik . The ship itself was beautiful and clean, and our room happened to be very spacious! The staff were great, and our Sail Croatia guide was very helpful and knowledgeable about all the stops we made. We had a good group of travelers all around our age group (late 20's to early 30's), and there was a good mix of partying and relaxing. I would highly recommend this trip!!
