You know how the saying goes, ‘travelling makes your life richer’ – they weren’t kidding! There are so many things travel is good for: the soul, the experiences, the culture. But for all that comes with travelling, one of the best gifts you get are the friends you make along the way.
It turns out that this doesn’t ring more true than on a Croatia cruise. Ask anyone who has island hopped with these guys and they’ll burst at the seams bragging how the best week of their life was made possible by their fellow travellers.
For 7 nights, not only will you explore some of Dalmatia’s finest, you’ll discover that your shipmates, or ‘Sail Croatia family’ as they’ve so often been called, are what really make the experience.
Nothing compares to the camaraderie you get when you wake up from your first night out partying in Croatia together, reminiscing on all the wild moments from the night before.
And if you have trouble breaking the ice, there’s no better opportunity than to jump into an excursion with your new pals. After all, excursions are just the grown up version of a school trip but with more adrenaline, opportunity and thrill!
Drift dirt, sample local produce, kayak on some of the bluest waters together – these are all great opportunities to share unique moments. Who can say they’ve flown through the Cetina Canyon and know the feeling of the thrill that comes with it other than those who have joined you onboard.
If you’re wondering who you can expect onboard, then expect every type of traveller. Solo travellers are a dime a dozen, ready to hit the ground running and experience all Croatia, and Sail Croatia, have to offer. If you’re thinking of riding solo, you’re matched with another traveller of the same sex (which is another great way to make friends), or if you’re after a little more privacy, you can choose to pay a Single Supplement and have a cabin to yourself.
It’s also common for couples to join the convoy, and, more often than not, groups of friends will be onboard ready to welcome new friends into their circle. Either way, you’re going home with more friends than you came onboard with!
There’s something about travelling with a group of strangers who eventually become your best mates that can’t be beat. And while money doesn’t buy happiness, it does get you a Sail Croatia cruise, and that’s pretty much the same thing.
