The world of travel is changing rapidly, as companies adapt their offerings to a post COVID-19 world, with safety and social distancing at the heart of many of the modifications. The latest example comes from Cruise Croatia, who have just launched a brand new private cruise around the country’s hidden gems for 2021.

Due to set sail next year, the company’s private cruise experience will see passengers travelling from Split to Dubrovnik on a luxury 165-foot small ship, taking in some of the most picturesque and remote areas of Croatia along the way, including Vis, Hvar and Korčula. The seven-night luxury cruise begins with a private guided tour of Split, before cocktails aboard their own personal ship. From Split the private cruise ship will travel on to Krka Waterfalls National Park where guests can swim under waterfalls. From there the vessel heads to the island of Vis, through to Hvar where they take part in a wine-tasting event.

The idea to create the new experience came as a response to the current global situation, with the company wanting to offer a cruise to holidaymakers who may be experiencing some reservations about being on crowded vessels with other people. While Cruise Croatia have outlined a planned itinerary for the cruise, the private tour it can be tailor-made for each guest. The ship has luxury touches that include spacious air-conditioned cabins to a dining area and bar, as well as a sundeck featuring a hot tub.

“We are very excited to get our normal fleet of cruises back in full flow next year but we are also delighted to be offering this new and unique experience for those holidaymakers who may be seeking a more private and remote experience for 2021,” Graham Carter, CEO of Cruise Croatia said.
