A day in the life | Onboard with Horizon Sail on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia

So what is it really like living at Sea for a week with Horizon Sail? Is life as dreamy as those insta-posts suggest, with people jumping off the boat into that pure blue water? Let us give you the low-down on what may well be the week of your life! 

The Mornings

Each day you will wake up to continental breakfast, served as we cruise to our next destination. The coastline and islands offer spectacular views, with breathtaking mountain ranges, picturesque bays and what is surely Europe’s most crystal clear water.

The Afternoons

After breakfast it’s all about soaking up the sunshine and relaxing up on the top deck with a book or some tunes pumping. Grab your lilos and floats before taking the refreshing plunge into the Adriatic at our swim stop for the day. Our Croatian chef serves up local specialties for a three-course lunch each day (some seriously good food will be served during the week!). Your Horizon Sail trip manager will give you the rundown of the new destination’s history, sights and any plans for the afternoon and evening. Stretch your legs as your trip manager takes you on an orientation walk of the next island town, and there will be free time to explore, swim, shop and experience all the town has to offer.

The Evenings

Each evening your trip manager will give you some dinner suggestions for our favourite local restaurants, or perhaps even arrange a group meal together. At night, there is always happy hour at the boat bar, and then the option in most destinations to experience some local nightlife like the waterfront cocktail bars of Hvar or the iconic party in the 16th century fortress at Club Revelin in Dubrovnik.

The Crew

Each ship is crewed by a local Croatian Captain, Chef, Sailors and a Barman. These guys make your week that extra bit special and unique, working above and beyond to ensure your experience is one to remember! Make sure you take the time to have a beer and a chat with them, some of the stories they will tell you are amazing! 

Horizon Sail has some of the best and most experienced trip managers on the Adriatic! Our trip managers are not just on a working holiday either – these guys know Croatia inside out, and will bring it to life before your eyes. With their local knowledge, top tips, fun facts, excellent playlists and passion for Croatia, these are the people who will make your experience!

The Ship

Each ship has its own unique style and features, and most will have three or four decks. Below deck is where you will find cabins, in the cool and quiet part of the ship. Each of our cabins are twin share, with linen provided. Depending on the ship, there may be a private bathroom or this may be shared on the main deck. Main deck is also where you will be served breakfast and lunch each day in the dining room, and usually the ship’s bar is here too. The top deck of the ship is your main relaxation hub – plenty of space for sun lounging, often with another bar!
