Demand for Croatia cruising

Croatia has been one of the rising stars of Europe since the world reopened, according to World Journeys.

The niche wholesaler reports high demand in particular for cruising the Adriatic coast between Split and Dubrovnik.

‘We are seeing a lot of people adding a Croatia cruise on to the end of other Europe arrangements, as it’s a great way to relax and feel the holiday vibe after what may be more hectic travels,’  marketing manager Caroline Clegg says.

‘Options range from cruises aboard deluxe superior ships which are effectively mini floating boutique hotels, to a bike and cruise combo, or a private motor yacht rental which comes with an English-speaking skipper and sailor, for a more exclusive experience.’

An early booking saving of 10% applies to the eight-day Deluxe Croatia Cruise when booked by 31 December 2023, on departures between April and May 2024.
