Cruises for young along the Croatian coast is the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration, with a lot of fun and the best parties, meeting young travelers from every corner of the globe. It’s sort of a combination of sailing and music festival.

Each day you’ll have a relaxing schedule. You’ll sail early in the morning, and stop for a swim on the way to new destination. Sometimes you’ll just jump off the boat into the middle of the Adriatic, sometimes your captain will take you for a swim at one of many stunning beaches.

All you need is a couple of shirts and shorts, light sweater, same towels and few swimsuits, and an adventurous spirit. The best part of these cruises is just sitting on the deck, catching rays, reading, and just enjoying life. And in the evenings you’ll join partying crowds with plenty of drinks and great music.

On this cruises for young (from 18 to 35 years old) you’ll experience some of seven music festivals, plus the Krka waterfalls and the Kornati Islands, the buzzing coastal town of Vodice and Europe’s premier beach party destination – Zrce.

Ships

Don’t expect to be on Caribbean luxurious cruising liners, but on simple, small and clean wooden gullets. The capacity of these small ships is for 12 to 28 people. The cabins are basic and small and not sound-proof, reachable by narrow steep stairs. Some ships have private bathrooms for each cabin, while others are shared.

The shared bathroom boats are cheaper and are preferred by a younger (mostly early to mid twenties), more inclined to partying. The ensuite boats, have “older” passengers (mostly mid-twenties to mid-thirties) and less inclined to vivacious party nights.
