Split party cruise is the perfect combination of relaxation and exploration. Some of the best parties in Croatia are boat parties, where you can meet young travelers from every corner of the globe. Think of it as 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, while 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 party 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 these cruises for young (from 18 to 35 years old) you can experience different music festivals and party destinations.
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.
