Croatia has become one of the hottest destinations for young travellers in recent years with a seemingly endless choice of island-hopping trips to suit every budget.
And Topdeck sail Croatia trips are definitely ones you should consider if you’re after a week of sunshine, partying and the occasional excursion here and there.
There are four Topdeck Croatia sail tours available – all as diverse as the Croatian coastline itself. With one-way and round-trip routes starting and ending in either Split or Dubrovnik, there’s something for everyone.
Whether you’re just flying in for the week, or you’re making it part of a bigger Europe trip and attending world-class festivals, these Topdeck Croatia sail trips have got you covered.
[wpsm_update label=”NOTE”]Topdeck have paused some of their Sail Croatia trips until demand comes back after COVID. There are currently only two Croatia sailing trips running.[/wpsm_update]
This trip was previously called Croatian Riviera. It’s got a new name, but you can expect the same gorgeous swim stops and good times.
You’ll cruise the Dalmatian Coast aboard a pirate-style boat named Moja Maja and enjoy a private chef during your cruise.
You’ll be on a traditional style boat, so passenger numbers are capped at 24.
If you’re after a more luxurious ship, check out the Sail & Swim: Croatia – Split to Split (Plus) cruise below.
Topdeck’s Sail & Swim: Croatia – Split to Split (Plus) trip is the same as the one mentioned above.
The only differences are a fancier ship, a bigger passenger capacity (36 people) and the price is higher due to the premium ship upgrade.
This one-way Topdeck sail Croatia tour is the most popular and affordable Croatia Sail routes available.
You can choose between the Split to Dubrovnik route or Dubrovnik to Split – whichever you go for; this Topdeck Adriatic Sunsets trip takes seven nights island-hopping to the hottest ports on the Croatia coastline.
Adriatic Sunsets is the only Topdeck Croatia sail to visit Bol and Stari Grad, so if these are on your bucket list, then this is your only option – unless you wanted to jump ship to Contiki.
Other destinations include Makarska, Hvar, Korčula and Mljet before sailing onto your final port – either Split or Dubrovnik.
Because of the popularity of the Topdeck Adriatic Sunsets route, you can expect an extra ten passengers onboard compared to the Dubrovnik Dreams route.
There are also five ships on offer with traditional (Moja Maja, Toma & Petrina) and premium (Meridijan & Pape Prvi) options available.
Kicking off and finishing back in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik Dreams is the second cheapest Topdeck sail Croatia tour on offer (Adriatic Sunsets is the most affordable).
You’ll spend one night in each port of call along the rugged Croatian coastline with all the big-ticket stops including Makarska, Split, Hvar, Korčula, Šipan and Mljet.
Topdeck’s Dubrovnik Dreams runs two ships on this route with ‘Petrina’, a traditional ship or for about $530 (£260) more you can upgrade to the premium ship ‘Leonardo’.
What do you get when you combine a week-long island hopping trip with one of the five best festivals in Europe?
You get Topdeck’s wicked 15-night, four-country trip Sail to Sziget tour.
The 7-night island-hopping leg of the trip kicks off in Dubrovnik and follows the same route as Dubrovnik Dreams. But unlike other Topdeck sail Croatia trips, Sail to Sziget is only getting warmed up.
You’ve got another eight full-on days ahead of you exploring Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia & Hungary where you’ll attend the world-famous Sziget festival – with your very own 3-day ticket!
