Croatia romantic cruise is the best way to enjoy your first important voyage together. There is no better way to explore romantic destinations but cruising by one of sailing boats or gullets.

Discover the Mediterranean you’ve always dreamed about: ancient stone houses framed by vineyards and olive trees, natural waterfront cafes where tourists can interact with local fishermen and seawater so clear you hardly need a mask to snorkel.

Spend your vacation on a wooden sailing ship cruising the Adriatic and get to know Croatia’s top destinations. The Croatian coast and islands with their natural beauty will make your cruise unforgettable.

Build your own world of dreams with many activities, socializing and meeting new people.

Imagine sailing through the thousands of islands on a private sailing charter, perfect weather, magnificent boat, trustworthy crew, fabulous food…

If you chose romantic cruise as your honeymoon venue, it will be a spectacular adventure filled with sailing, swimming, sleeping, sunning, eating and love.

And can you imagine a more romantic evening than being on the deck of a boat under a starlit sky, surrounded by luminescent plankton?

Have you ever try to swim with your loved one at night? Try it and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Perhaps you will even be lucky enough to swim with the dolphins that frequently follow sailing boats. If you haven’t been on any of gullets sailing charters I assure you without hesitation this is the best way to share your romantic moments and you will wish to come again.

The Adriatic (the “Mediterranean as it once was”) is an ideal place for sailing. It is safe, with plenty of wind and sun and over 1000 islands, islets and cliffs to explore.

The climate is warm and Mediterranean, with an average 25°C sea temperature in summer. This is also a unique area in Europe for enjoying the underwater world.

Why cruising is so romantic?

  • Feeling the heat of the sun and the wind blowing on your skin.
  • Watching the extraordinary sight of dolphins playing and dancing around the boat.
  • Diversity and spontaneity. Visiting every day to a different place, with a new splendor behind every promontory.
  • Lying on the deck while sailing during the day, swimming at night in shimmering plankton under glittering sky.

One way romantic cruise

Usually the most of cruises have round trip itineraries, starting and finishing from the same port.

However if you prefer to see more that I have proposed one way cruises that might be a perfect solution.
