Traditional Wooden Boat Cruise

Our traditional wooden hulled boats started life as fishing vessels or transport boats and have been lovingly converted to cruise boats. Here at Cruise Croatia, there are two categories of wooden cruise ships: those with private shower/ toilet and those with shared facilities and mostly bunk beds. Both types of traditional cruises suit those seeking a great value, authentic experience on a budget. Discover our small ship cruises below.
