The minimum age onboard the Elegance cruise is 18. If you are looking for a Sail Croatia experience with children younger than 18 years old, you may be interested in our Private Yacht Tours!


What are the cabin arrangements?

Cabins on the Elegance cruise are our most luxurious and spacious cabins, consisting of a Twin or Double bed, ensuite and air-conditioning. Twin or Double bed cabins are confirmed during the booking stage, so please let us know your preferences. On some ships, we also have Triple cabins available. Triple cabins consist of a double bed and a single bunk, and we provide a 10% discount per person. Each cabin is approximately 10-12 square meters (including the ensuite).


What is the difference between Above Deck and Lower Deck cabins?

Above Deck cabins are located on the main deck of the ship and may have internal or external access. The Lower Deck cabins are situated in the hull of the ship and are accessed via stairs from the main deck down into the hull. The Lower Deck cabins are slightly more affordable than the Above Deck cabins, however they are usually slightly larger in size as there is no walk-way around the outside. They are also often cooler and quieter in the evenings. The main benefit with the Above Deck cabins is that they are on the main or upper deck, easily accessible without having to use the stairs!
