FAQs about our Croatia cruises and tours

Planning a Croatia cruise in 2024? Here are some of the more common questions we receive about our Croatian island cruises.

Cruise Croatia operates from late April to mid-October, with the best months being May to September.

Although significantly warmer than Western Europe at any time of year, Croatia has a seasonal weather pattern. Spring occurs in April/May and Summer usually arrives early in June, lasting right through to September. Although October is technically Autumn, the late Summer warmth tends to hold on well into the month.

Come November, a lot of towns and operators start their winter hibernation. However, the cold is intense but usually short-lived compared to other parts of Europe. By April, when our cruises have resumed, the sun is out, wildflowers bloom everywhere, and Spring is a glorious time to visit.

Come Summer, the country and coastlines are a hive of activity. Markets, open-air concerts, festivals and al-fresco living fill the streets. Tourist season reaches its peak, and the temperatures soar; perfect for a sailing adventure!
