Cruise Deal: This Luxury Cruise in Croatia Is 30% Off (and Fully Refundable)

Set sail on the Adriatic Sea next year.

After mostly staying out of the waters, cruises are making a comeback this year around the world. Cruise liners are assuaging travelers’ fears with strict protocols (vaccine certificates, mask mandates, tests) and the CDC has a set of guidelines for companies who want to welcome back guests on board. However, it’s natural to feel concerned about the Delta variant. While you wait for things to get better with the pandemic, you can consider a 2022 itinerary and better yet, a smaller and exclusive luxury cruise. We’ve scouted just the deal that fits this bill.

Zantium Travel operates luxury cruises on Croatia’s Adriatic coast and its bespoke ships host a few fortunate passengers. Right now, it’s offering a 7-night itinerary along the Adriatic Sea for $1,749 upwards per person (on double sharing). The cruise sets sail next year on Saturdays from May 28 to Oct 1, 2022, and Travelzoo has a fully refundable deal, which is even better! Want to keep it all to your private party? You can reserve the ship for your friends and family at a cost of $50,000—make a deposit of $10,000 now to book. 

The journey from Split to Dubrovnik (or vice versa) will be on one of Zantium’s beautiful ships. Symphony—built in 2021—has 18 cabins in all, including six with private balconies, along with a sundeck, pool, restaurant, and outdoor lounge. Antaris has 11 cabins with private balconies, 19 in total, and other amenities that its two-year younger sister features. Rest assured, with just 38 passengers, the journey will be safe, exclusive, and intimate. That’s the reason this deal is getting sold out so quickly!

Croatia, with a gorgeous 1,100-mile coastline, has a lot to offer! Cruise lovers have so much to look forward to while on this voyage: turquoise waters of the Adriatic and the dramatic shoreline, charming towns of Croatia, untouched beaches and hidden gems, and the rich history and culture of the islands. A walking tour in the buzzing city of Split, an excursion to the sparkling Blue Caves, and a dinner in one of the oldest towns in Croatia, Stari Grad, are part of the experience. 

When you’re flying all the way to Europe, you’ll want to stay awhile longer and explore more waterfalls, national parks, and vineyards. Luckily, you have the option of adding a four-day land tour to this deal for $1,799 per person for pre- or post-trip explorations. It includes four-night accommodations in four-star properties in Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes, Split, Hvar, and Dubrovnik with daily breakfast; three lunches and one dinner; a truffle hunting and tasting experience and more.

As a heads up, although Fodor’s fully endorses this deal, we receive a small commission on this transaction.

Just a comment on the "optional land tour".  When I read the information from the promoter, it was clear that the $1799pp land tour was required....not optional.  Can you clarify?
