      About this trip

      Welcome to one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.  From gorgeous coastlines to pristine parks and sleepy atmospheric villages, there are countless places to visit in Croatia and we want to share this well preserved mediterranean atmosphere with you.  Our home for the week will be aboard The Black Swan which is a luxury mega yacht with all the amenities of a hotel!  All cabins have an en suite bathroom, individually controlled AC, TV, safety deposit box, smoke detectors, and a system for hearing announcements.  The boat also has a spacious dining area, bar, outdoor lounge and a sun deck with jacuzzi!


      We are taking over every cabin on this mega yacht.  Each room will either be double or triple occupancy.  Double occupancy has either one double bed or two single beds.  Triple occupancy has one double bed and one single bed. 

       

      This will be a FUN filled trip with a mixture of nude and textile opportunities.  We will have daily NUDE swim stops with our very own DJ where you can let your hair down and relax.  We will have guided tours of the various cities so you can learn and see the history of Croatia.  There will also be plenty of free time for you to explore and do things on your own while on the trip.  An all-around great opportunity to swim, dance, sight see, eat some great food and of course socialize and create lasting memories with some wonderful people!


      A couple of things to be mindful of:
      1. The boat will be our home for the duration of the trip.  Please keep this in mind if you get extremely sea sick.
      2. This is a boat.  If you’ve ever been on a cruise, you know the rooms are small.  You must be comfortable sharing a space with others as there are no single occupancy rooms available.
      3. Croatia is a very walkable country, but it is old and there are a lot of cobblestone streets and walkways.  You should have a medium level of fitness and mobility for the trip.  This trip is not geared towards those with mobility issues.
      4. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated however there may be some excursions/group activities that are not vegan/vegetarian friendly.
      5. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day along with four dinners.  There will be three nights where dinner is on your own.  There are a wide variety of dining options and even Michelin starred restaurants for the foodies out there.
      6. Alcohol/drinks are NOT all inclusive on this trip.  Each person will have a beverage/alcohol stipend for the trip.  Anything above and beyond that is at the cost of each person and alcohol is not permitted to be brought onboard.  


      There will be more information released as we get closer to the actual trip including the specific sailing itinerary, packing list to help with knowing what to bring as well as what time you need to be in Split for the yacht departure.

      Michelle Jackson was outstanding in planning and preparing as the group leader. Her efforts were Hall of Fame and appreciated by everyone. The trip had a very interesting itinerary and nice group of people. A good experience for all.

      So here's my honest to God opinion about the Croatia 2023 Luxury Super Yacht experience.... IT WAS THE BEST YACHT EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE - AND I CONSIDER MYSELF A YACHTER! Lol I had to write that in caps so people can understand how beautiful and awesome that entire trip was. From the port stops along the Dalmation Coast to the overnight yacht stay in Hvar I felt every piece of my soul being relaxed and reconnected with like minded souls. You see it's not just the destination that BNA get's so well but it's the people who are within this organization. The members and people who journey with us make this a safe space and amazing experience! I loved how each cabin had a great layout and the showers/bathrooms onboard are top of the line. I spent most of my time actually on the yacht because for me that's where I wanted to be, but if you wanted to be in the hills and on land every stop you could be and do it up there too. This experience is made for all - if you are hesitant about a Bare Bon Voyage experience let this review give you the peace to know that you get your naked sun time and you get to explore and discover the lands of a place you may have never been. I would call this trip a clothed w/ heavy sprinkles of nude experience and I'm okay with that. You have laundry services on board, but you can easily visit a laundry mat at one of the stops if you are on a budget. Some people even mailed their luggage back home at the Hvar stop vs dealing w/ extra baggage. The BNA host really are like no other travel company out there that I know. They make the trip plan so you don't feel like you are risking your life and safety when you travel with them. I think would definitely say this is a trip worthy of a repeat just from the luxury experience. The price point might make you question it, but after you experience the trip you'll get the why - it's worthy of the cost. With all that being said if you are a cool down to earth traveler who's on the fence on this trip please let this review remove you from that fence and onto this amazing voyage! Loved it! Love them! And can't wait to do it again! IG: @international.cyn

      Embarking on my inaugural journey, I was filled with a mix of anticipation and anxiety. Yet, the experience unfolded just as it was portrayed, fulfilling my needs perfectly. The joy of forging connections with fellow travelers has been a constant delight. The excursions were fantastic, and the ambiance was even more impressive. To be candid, this was an adventure I never envisioned myself undertaking. However, it’s now an experience I’m eager to repeat. Post-trip, it feels as though my family has expanded with new additions. My gratitude goes out to BNA for providing this enriching experience and their unwavering support throughout.

      The first time I've traveled with a group and it was phenomenal. The organizers really set up something special and carefree. Everything was handled, everyone was awesome, and I'll definitely travel with them all again.
