FAQ’s – Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect at a Prince Charming Cruise?
Come as you are!Good mood is particularly important on our trips. You will notice that on our boutique ships with only 40 guests you can quickly and easily come into contact with like-minded guys..
There is no compulsory program and you can choose how you want to spend your day, but we will provide you with a balanced framework.
Dynamic and cosy: Our boutique ships offer enough space for social groups, a sundowner in the Jacuzzi with music, cosy moments for two or even silence to enjoy the sea and nature. In the afternoon we will usually enter a harbour and you decide yourself if and with whom you want to spend the evening ashore. At short notice we organize joint meetings for dinner, in bars or clubs for the night owls!
Who is the target group of Prince Charming Cruises?
Our cruises are ALL GAY*
Our boutique ships are aimed at gay men who appreciatethe finer things in life: good company, exclusive atmosphere on board and beautiful destinations. You will have an unforgettable time as a single, with your partner or with friends!
* But there is no problem if you want to share your cabin with a female friend.
Language on board
Language on board our cruises is German and English.
Is there a dress code?
You are welcome here, just as you feel comfortable. This can be casual, colorful or chic and stylish!
Nudism on board?
We are open, but….
On the decks of our ships nudity is not allowed out of respect for the other passengers. Nevertheless, you have the possibility, for example on the MS AMBASSADOR, to reach the roof of the Sunny-Deck (about 100 square meters) to lie down with a bath towel nude. This is subject to change and only in compliance with the safety rules. For other ships an individual assessment is necessary.
If you want a seamless tan, we recommend you go to a nudist beach as soon as we reach the port, Croatia is known for its nudist culture and we can help you choose!
Where can I find the ship in the port of departure (dock numbers)?
We will inform you at short notice (usually the day before your trip) to give you the dock number in the port. This way you can be sure that you will have no problems finding our ship in the harbor. If you can’t find our ship in the port, you can contact our Prince Charming tour guides at
+41 79 608 28 48
Croatian Kuna (HKR) is the national currency in Croatia. But Euros are widely accepted, especially in tourist areas. On the boat you can pay in Kuna, cards are not accepted. We recommend you to withdraw Croatian Kuna as cash after your arrival in Croatia at a ATM with EC card (not credit card).
Tips on board
Tips for the staff on board the ship and the tour guide are not included in the tour price.
If you are happy with the work and service, the crew and the tour guide will be happy if you give a little extra tip on a voluntary basis. On the last evening two envelopes will be left in the cabin in in which you can anonymously leave a tip on departure.
A benchmark for good service is 5€ per day and per person for the guide, and 8€ per day and per person for the crew. But feel free, just like when you tip in a restaurant in Vienna, Munich or Zurich…
Can I go swimming from the boat?
Usually there is at least one stop per day for swimming in a beautiful bay. The ship leaves the port early in the morning and you can enjoy breakfast with a panoramic view of the coast before anchoring in a bay at noon. You can refresh yourself directly in the sea! Usually lunch is served on board and the ship departs for another bay or the next port. And you can always relax and enjoy the time with a drink in the Jacuzzi! Please refer to the description of your trip for the detailed schedule.
Vegetarian / food allergy or special dietary needs?
Please let us know after booking or at least 2 weeks before the cruise if you have food allergies or a special dietary requirement (e.g. vegetarian).
Breakfast is served as buffet, lunch is served as fixed and set 3-course menu. With the meals we particularly attach importance to typical delicacies of the region such as fresh fish and seafood or grilled Ćevapčići, truffles etc. If you do not like to eat fish and/or seafood, please let us know in advance.
Our chef will do his best to serve delicious food for everyone! Please keep in mind that the ship’s galley is not comparable to a restaurant on land and the options are limited. Cooking is done traditionally and with love, you will taste it!
Drinks on board
Our boutique ships have a bar and are stocked with a selection of soft drinks, beer, wine, cocktails and coffee. You pay for drinks on board in Kuna.
Alcohol may not be taken on board and is served only at the bar. This way the crew can keep an eye on consumption and ensure safety on the ship.
WIFI on board
On Prince Charming ships, WIFI on board is included!
Please note that the connection may not always be equally reliable during the cruise. Due to the distance from the coast, sometimes signal reception may not be possible or the connection speed may drop. Cellular signal reception may also vary depending on where you are on board (reception may be poor or non-existent in cabins).
Smoking on board
While in Croatia smoking is still allowed outside often, on board it is restricted to some areas on the ship for safety reasons (mostly allowed in the back and near the bathing platform). Smoking is not allowed in the restaurant or in the stateroom.
Whether and where exactly you are allowed to smoke on the ship, you will hear from the captain at the start of your journey.
Allocation of cabins and bed configuration
The allocation of the stateroom will be done before the start of the trip and you will be informed about it. Please note that our ships have different layouts in terms of cabin size and bed configuration (fixed double bed, fixed single beds, flexible single beds).
When booking, we ask for your request for a double bed or two single beds in the stateroom. However, we expressly point out that we cannot guarantee the configuration of the beds at any time and that for organizational reasons changes may occur at short notice.
Sockets on board
On the ship the sockets are EU sockets as you find them in DE/AT. For devices with Swiss plug, please do not forget adapters.
Is there anything on board that does not meet your expectations?
We are always trying to make your trip a unique experience!
In the unlikely event that something on board does not meet your expectations, please contact the Prince Charming tour guides on board. Be assured that everything possible will be done to ensure that you fully enjoy your trip!
