This is not a competition. All 3 destinations are stunning and special – and different!. Turkey, Croatia or Greece Cruises? The best answer would be all 3. Read here the most common details about all 3 and select which one might be the best for you.
Turkey in comparison to Croatia lacks the islands and smaller charming Med towns which you can explore out of the gulet. Turkey is most famous for the immense beauty of the bays incredibly turquoise sea and for sleeping under the stars during the night which is a truly amazing experience. Besides that Turkey also has an incredibly rich history and you can make many interesting trips to the mainland and check several archeological trips during the cruise. Turkey is also probably the best country when it comes to hospitality and you can get the gulets which have best quality and services for the best prices. High season in Turkey is entire July and August while maybe the best weather (not so hot) is in June and September when not only temperatures but also the prices go down a lot. In October and May, the weather is still good enough and prices are truly flexible.
Greece has a similar concept as Croatia. You have several different areas where you can find a lot of islands, such as the Cyclades, Ionian islands, Dodecanese islands, Sporades……The itinerary possibilities are truly vast and Greek islands are Worldwide famous. The only problem is the number of gulets in Greece is limited. Most of the gulets are inside DELUXE – ULTRA LUXURY gulet category, so if you wish to cruise on Standard or Luxury gulets you should rent a gulet in Turkey and cruise Dodecanese islands (Rhodes, Kos, Symi….). Greece has the highest season in July and August, however also the June and September are very nice, as the winds calm down. May and October can already be very windy and rainy so the cruises in that time depend a bit on luck.
