On the first day of our Croatian Trip, we inspected gulets Luna, Blue Nose, Nostalgija and Dolin, where we also spent the night. In this blog post, we will share our view of these gulets.
Gulet inspection no.1 – Luna.
Gulet Luna is huge 33 meters 8 cabins gulet that can accommodate up to 18 guests.
Some time ago we did a nice movie about this vessel which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oq3hMJWmOMM
There is not much to say here.
Brothers Ivan and Zoran are still making sure clients go home super happy.
They removed the Sauna and made a cool Bar area on a second deck.
Cabins were tidy and spacious and the crew was also helpful and nice.
MY PERSONAL OPINION:
For groups of 14 – 18 guests searching for DELUXE options I still think Luna is the best vessel for gulet cruises in Croatia.
There could be a bit of competition from gulet Romanca – but we will get to this later.
Gulet Inspection n.2 – Blue Nose
Gulet Blue Nose is a 28 meters gulet with 5 cabins.
In season 2013 gulet had booked 17 weeks which is amazing for Croatia, however, the reviews were not perfect.
Honestly – the gulet had some technical problem with air condition but the biggest setback was crew.
For this year – from what we have seen now things are looking good.
There is a new crew of 3 people – led by captain Vinko and they did lots of new things on the gulet.
New TV, upgrade of air condition and toilets.
It is still one of the very few gulets with JET SKI and we are positive gulet will get very very good reviews in 2014.
We have some cabin charter in Croatia on this gulet also and you can check the movie of Blue Nose on this link:
Gulet Inspection n.3 – Nostalgija
Gulet Nostalgija is 25 meters gulet with 5 cabins.
Gulet is very well maintained and the best part of the gulet is its owners Dario and Ani.
Dario speaks 5 different languages and has hundreds of stories to tell as a captain of 100 + meters ships which he managed all over the world in the most fun and unique way.
You could be listed to the guy for hours – easily.
His wife is a great chef (tested first hand) who is also lots of fun.
If you like genuine local professional experience – you can be sure you will have the best time on Nostalgija.
Gulet inspection no.4 – Dolin
About Dolin it was already all said and done and the trip was more to say hello to Ivica (owner) and spend the night, rather than making heavy inspections.
Gulet Dolin is still the perfect option for groups with a lower budget that wishes to experience gulet cruises at its best.

Example of dinner we had on gulet (food inspection)
The first day of our cruise was a complete success.
Gulets in very good shape, owners ready to discuss good deals, lots of inspections of food and sleeping over in Trogir.
Tomorow – Day 2 of the inspection trip.
