Sail Croatia has revealed that its 2023 season is now over 90% full, with unprecedented occupancy this early in the year.
The cruise line said its Elegance sailings, ideal for mature travellers who like the highest quality comfort, and its active Hike and Cycle cruises, have sold faster than ever. Sail Croatia is now focusing on 2024 ship charters and cruises.
Its Co-founder and Director, Helle Seuren, shares her tips for agents on spotting the perfect Sail Croatia guest and selling this type of holiday to them.
Helle said: “Croatia is bursting with experiences to suit all kinds of travellers. Make sure you match the right experience to the right guest.”
Unique Experiences For All Preferences
From Game of Thrones and Star Wars fans to history buffs, Croatia’s dramatic medieval towns are a strong drawcard.
From the idyllic islands with turquoise water and secret bays… to the mesmerising lavender fields and vineyards, there is truly something for everyone.
Sail Croatia offers sailings to suit all types of travellers, from luxury cruises for the mature guest on Elegance to party sailings on Navigator Cruises.
Agents are encouraged to understand the offer to match the perfect holiday to their customers.
Regardless of client budget, there is a cruise experience to cater to everyone, from a budget-friendly active holiday to a luxurious exclusive charter experience.
Benefits To Small Ship Cruising
The ability to swim directly off the back of the ship in secluded, glistening coves.
An intimate experience with no more than 40 guests onboard.
Explore small coves & tiny towns, discovering beaches such as Stiniva Beach, Vis – voted the most beautiful beach in Europe by European Best Destinations.
- Small ships moor in a new location daily, arriving in the afternoon & staying in port overnight.
- This allows guests more time to explore the island at their leisure and step directly from the ship onto a cobblestone street.
Incredible Inclusions, Fantastic Value For Money
Breakfast and a 3-course lunch daily are included in the fare.
All Sail Croatia cruises come with different inclusions i.e. Elegance Cruise includes a Tour Manager, Captain’s Dinner, Local Village Dinner and Airport Transfers.
Cycle and Hike cruises come complete with experienced Cycle and Hike guides, plus the opportunity to hire an e-bike or hybrid bike.
Low Deposits To Secure Their Spots & Itinerary
Only a £50 deposit to secure a spot; the balance can be paid 12 weeks before departure.
Opportunities To Upsell
Helle Seuren said: “Look for the opportunity to upsell to a private whole ship charter or a richer, more exclusive holiday choice.”
For groups wanting to celebrate a special occasion, a private ship charter is a great option to celebrate milestone birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, weddings and so much more.
Due to the capacity of small ships (ranging from 18 – 40 guests), the ability to book a private ship charter becomes more attainable.
Agents can also earn a 10% commission on all Elegance Cruises with Sail Croatia.
