Wellness Croatia Cruise FAQ's

What is the Wellness Croatia Cruise?

The Wellness Croatia Cruise combines the best of exploring the Dalmatian coastline on a luxury small ship cruise, with mindful activities that are designed to invigorate and inspire the body and soul. This cruise is well suited to young professionals and young-at-heart travellers, who are looking to relax, explore and unwind.

What time do cruises start/finish?

The Wellness Croatia Cruise will depart Split on a Saturday at 13:00. All ships arrive at their final port on a Friday afternoon, and check-out is between 8am and 9am on the following Saturday.

What are the cabin arrangements?

The ship onboard this cruise consists of either 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.

What is the difference between Above Deck and Lower Deck cabins?

Above Deck cabins are on the main deck of the ship or just above it. Lower Deck cabins are in the hull of the ship. There are pros and cons to both - Lower Deck cabins are often cooler and quieter at night, as you do not have many travellers walking past your cabin as much as the Above Deck cabins. Above Deck cabins offer more natural light and ventilation. Each ship is unique and therefore the layout varies from ship to ship. Please note: On some ships, the Above Deck cabins are located across two levels, i.e. located on the main deck and on a higher deck level.

I am travelling by myself, is there a single supplement?

If you prefer to have your own cabin, you can pay a single supplement which is 50% of the one person price. Please note single supplements are not applicable on Special Offers or discounted cruises. Alternatively, we can match you with another solo traveller of the same sex onboard the ship.

What food is included?

Breakfast and a 3-course lunch are included daily onboard this cruise. Breakfast is usually continental style, with additional warm food such as eggs. Lunches are usually 3 courses, with a soup/salad starter, meat or fish-based main course and fruit/cake for dessert, prepared by your onboard cook. All other evenings, we encourage our clients to explore the local towns, experiencing local food and wine! Of course we can offer suggestions on the best places to go!

Can I bring food and drink onboard?

You cannot bring food and drink onboard the ship, except for items that fill specific dietary requirements. Each boat has its own bar and drinks consumed onboard must be purchased from here. You have unlimited access to the onboard water cooler during the salon opening times. We recommend bringing a re-usable water bottle with you onboard, and filling this up before the salon closes for the evening.

Are there any local payments that I need to be aware of?

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.
