British, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and American clients do not require a visa for Croatia. South African guests do require a Schengen visa to enter Croatia. Before leaving home, please ensure that your passport has at least six months’ validity and your visa (if required) is also valid. You should also organise travel insurance.
While most of Europe has adopted Euro, Croatia uses its own currency Kuna. Payments in local currency are required for all purchases on shore and on the ship. We suggest taking enough Kuna with you to cover meals in restaurants in some of the smaller islands. In Split, Dubrovnik and Hvar you will be able to use your credit cards and also withdraw funds from ATM’s. You Cruise Director will gladly direct you to exchange offices and ATM machines. Credit cards are not accepted on board the ship. Here’s a table of approximate exchange rates (correct at time of writing: March 2018).
|1 HRK (Kuna)||0.12||0.17||1.97||0.21||0.22||0.13|
