There are dozens and dozens of modern and beautifully renovated ships within the Cruise Croatia fleet. First-Class is the term we use to describe new and a little older steel hull boats with private amenities and air-conditioning.

Costs depend on the duration and itinerary, but there are plenty of great value cost options.

Depending on the itinerary and ship in question, you can expect facilities such as private en suites, air-conditioning, hair dryer, wardrobe and desk area. Shared amenities include on-deck jacuzzis, swimming platforms, outdoor terraces, restaurants, bars, sun decks and plenty more. Rest assured – you’ll feel thoroughly pampered!

Our Deluxe cruises and First-Class cruises both feature lower-deck and main-deck cabins. Lower-deck cabins have porthole windows, the main deck cabins have larger windows and often direct access out onto the main deck. A few ships also offer upper deck cabins, these are generally the largest and most private cabins.

You will find private balconies on several of our Deluxe cruises. Book early, they are only available on a few ships and often sell-out quickly.
