FAQ & More
Travelers from North America, EU countries, and Australia do not need a visa to enter Croatia and can stay for up to 90 days. However, you must have a passport that was issued within the last 10 years and with at least six months validity, along with a return airline ticket.
The CDC and WHO recommend that you are vaccinated for hepatitis A and B, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella, tetanus, diptheria, chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia, and influenza. A Covid-19 vaccination is also recommended for travel to Croatia.
The Croatian currency is the kuna (kn), with the current exchange rate around USD 1 to 6 kn. US dollars are not generally accepted in Croatia but there are plenty of exchange houses and banks in the ports and at the airports. Credit cards are accepted at most restaurants and shops in the towns we visit, with Mastercard and Visa the most widely accepted.
Small ship cruising is quite different from being on a large cruise vessel, with most of the yachts less than 50 meters in length. This means they are large enough to be comfortable and stable while also having the ability to access Croatia’s ports and inlets. With far fewer guests on board, the experience is also much more personal and you’ll get to know your crew quickly. Meals are often made using locally sourced ingredients and the trips are all about the destinations, rather than the onboard activities.
On most days, you will set sail after breakfast and will have the opportunity for a morning swim. After lunch, our vessels usually dock for an afternoon guided tour, with time to explore and shop at your leisure. You can then return to the vessel to freshen up before dinner is served on board or you may prefer to dine alfresco in the local towns. As we usually dock directly in the historic ports, you are free to get on and off the ship whenever you like.
While we don’t enforce luggage restrictions, it’s important to keep in mind that space in the cabins can be limited, so pack accordingly. There’s no need to bring formal attire as our trips are very laid back. We recommend bringing only what you really need.
The crew size will depend on the size of the vessel.
The differences between cabins will depend on the vessel you are on. Generally speaking, upper deck cabins have larger windows and some also have balconies. Lower deck cabins usually have porthole windows and tend to be a little quieter as they are away from the communal areas.
We highly recommend that all of our guests purchase travel insurance as it will cover you if unforeseen circumstances arise. Please also carefully read our terms and conditions at the time of booking your trip.
