The New Riviera
With its seemingly endless coast and lustrous islands, Croatia is popular cruise territory. There's hardly a better way to experience the culture and ecological diversity of Croatia's islands than on board a boat. There are many different options to cruise or sail around Croatia. Visitors can charter a yacht or sailboat, with or without a skipper or rent a cabin and take one of the many wonderful gulet cruise holidays that depart weekly from a number of Croatian ports. Visitors can choose from small motorboats to make short trips to local islands, to large, luxury yachts! There are also numerous day trips on offer taking you from coastal highlights like Split or Dubrovnik to surrounding islands. A traditional seven-day cruise with a navigator, including breakfast and lunch, costs around €500 per person. Most companies offer early booking discounts, so if you want a good price it is advisable to sign up at least 2 weeks in advance.
