Traveling to Croatia, you’ll experience old cities with everlasting charm, natural paradises, and unforgettable cuisine. Our Croatia & Its Islands tour guides you through the capital city of Zagreb, drifts you along the Adriatic coast on a small cruise ship, and brings you before the splendor of sparkling waterfalls and beaches.


Well, mentally, I’m already packing my imaginary suitcase for this dream vacation. But what to bring for a trip of a lifetime that walks you through medieval cities and nature’s beauty, while also delivering luxury as you cruise the sea? If you’re ready to explore Croatia’s wonders and pack your bags for real, you’ll want to be sure to bring along some key items:


1.     Swim Attire. We’re talking bathing suit, water shoes, and flowy coverups. Our Croatia & Its Islands tour takes you aboard a private cruise ship for seven nights with opportunities to dip your toes in the Adriatic once you’ve anchored to explore Croatia’s shores by day. Be ready for a swim.


2.     Cruise-Chic Attire. You’ll be coming to a climate that goes together with breezy, light fabrics and a vacation atmosphere that welcomes a little flair for fashion. It’s only appropriate to dress for your picture-perfect backdrop so break out the linen shirts and sundresses!


3.     Comfortable Shoes: Between cobblestone streets and walks in nature, make sure you have comfortable sneakers to carry you through this fascinating region. Then for your days on deck cruising the Adriatic coast, a pair of boat shoes or flats should do nicely.


4.     Extra Tote. You’ll find treasures on this trip. Make sure you have a way to carry each one home. Pack a foldable travel bag to fill and tote all those amazing finds.


5.     Sun protection and hydration. Croatia’s gorgeous weather also calls for sun safety, so pack your sunscreen, sun hats, and sunglasses so you’ll have nothing but love for your sun-filled days. And of course, don’t forget to bring your favorite reusable water bottle to stay hydrated.
