We use a fleet of ‘A Category’, ‘A* Category’ and ‘A + Category’ boats during the summer, which all have en-suite cabins. The cabins can be ‘below deck’ or ‘on deck’ and are generally small as there is limited space on the boat – so please pack light.
If you are a solo traveller, you will always be sharing a twin room with someone of the same sex.
There will be electricity when the boat is sailing. At night, a generator may be used to ensure electricity is available overnight. To be safe, remember to charge your electronic devices when the boat is sailing. In peak season, please note that some ports may not have power.
All Croatia boat trips include daily buffet breakfasts and three-course lunches, as well as 1 litre of bottled water daily. On some trips, the crew may leave your water allowance in your cabin at the start of the trip.
Your sailboat will come with three or four Crew members, who will ensure your cruise is the highlight of your experience in Croatia. There will be a Captain, Deckhands and a Chef. The Captain is solely responsible for the boat while at sea, and it is important you heed their advice at all times for your own safety. All our Captains come from the area and have been sailing this coastline for many years, so rest assured that you’re in capable hands.
Cabins are either ‘below deck’ or ‘on deck’. If you are in an ‘on deck’ cabin you may be on the main deck or on the top deck. The cabins do not have air conditioning but most boats have air conditioning units in the communal areas, which may be put on for some time during the night. If the weather gets extremely hot, the crew may provide fans for the boat.
A* boats have the same features as A Category boats, with ‘below deck’ and ‘on deck’ cabins. Both communal areas and cabins have air conditioning.
On A+ boats you will experience a few more creature comforts with air-conditioned cabins, a full hot buffet breakfast and daily fresh fruit. There is plenty of deck space on the boat for lounging.
Optional Activities Show
On all trips we have arranged extra activities that we think will enhance your travel experience, but you have a choice as to whether or not you will participate. These are not included in the cost of your trip. They are usually organised on a group participation basis and should be taken into consideration when budgeting your spending money.
None of the Optional Activities on your trip are operated by Topdeck, nor do they form part of your contract with Topdeck for your trip. Topdeck arranges the activity as an agent of the local supplier. Should you participate in any Optional Activities your contract will be with the local supplier and their conditions will apply.
Please note: while we make every effort to keep these prices as accurate and up-to-date as possible, they are subject to change and in rare circumstances the actual price may vary slightly to what is published here.

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:
When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow Topdeckers if you become separated.
In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.
It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
