The Sail Croatia cruise was the perfect balance of relaxing, exploring, and partying for travelers our age. The specific cruise we took was the Navigator Split Return cruise, which is exclusively for 21-35 year olds and starts in Split, stops in Hvar, Trstenik, Dubrovnik, Mljet, Korcula, and Makarska, then ends back in Split. Each day we’d have breakfast from 8-9 then chill and tan on the deck while we sailed to the next location. We’d stop in a gorgeous cove or near a beach to swim, then continue on to that evening’s destination.

My favorite port town was Dubrovnik, no contest. The weather the day we stopped there was perfect and, unlike some of the other stops, there was a lot to see and do. First, we walked the city walls in Old Town which had the most breathtaking views of the city to one side and the bright blue water on the other. If I had a kuna for every time one of us said “Wow,” or “Beautiful,” on that walk I could’ve bought us all drinks that night.


We ran into Morgan, Claire, and Chantelle from our boat on the beach and left with them to take a sunset cable car ride to the top of Dubrovnik which promised amazing views. We got snacks and beers and waited for the boys to show up (since it was their idea), but ultimately we gave up on them and made a girl date of it. The views were spectacular, and we made sure to make the boys feel really bad for missing it when we got back to the boat.


Thanks for an amazing week Croatia!



Sounds like an awesome trip!

    Heh, glad you had such a great time in my country! To be fair, I live in continental Croatia (in the capital, Zagreb), so I can’t take credit for your good time still – nice to see people appreciate Dubrovnik, probably the most beautiful part of the country :D
