Vous vous posez encore cette question ??? Ou bien vous cherchez à convaincre vos amis ??

Voici quelques éléments de réponse :

1. Catlante est un spécialiste de ce type de vacances et ne fait que cela depuis plus de 20 ans. 

2. Le taux de satisfaction est incroyable, supérieur à 98% et le taux de personnes qui reviennent après une croisière est de 60% 

3. Les équipages Catlante à bord et à terre sont fidèles à l’entreprise car ils retrouvent un esprit de famille qui n’a pas été inventé ailleurs. En Corse par exemple, nous les logeons tous ensemble dans une villa avec vue imprenable sur la mer. 

4. Les croisières Catlante ont un style inimitable : authentiques, conviviales, chaleureuses, généreuses. C’est probablement lié à cette magie qu’apporte nos équipages et notre expérience depuis plus de 20 ans. 

5. Catlante est propriétaire de ses navires. Ils ont été dessinés et construits sur mesure pour opérer des croisières à la cabine ou en privatisation. La maintenance est réalisée avec finesse par nos propres équipes internes, qui connaissent ‘’leurs bébés’’ par coeur. 

6. Catlante a immatriculé tous ses navires en France, au registre international français et est ainsi soumis à un pavillon qui impose, dans le monde, le plus de normes de sécurité et de respect des équipages. Les équipages sont tous européens. 

 7. Ce type de vacances est parmi les plus éco-responsables au monde. La cuisine est locale et de qualité. Nos cuisiniers sont formés par des chefs reconnus. 

8. Tout est inclus, vous partez l’esprit tranquille pour vos vacances, comme un hôtel flottant pension complète ou une maison d’hôtes des mers. Dans la plupart des autres plateformes de mise en relation, vous prenez un risque sur les équipages, sur l’expérience vécue à bord, sur le niveau de la cuisine, et surtout sur l'assurance. 

Alors, vous hésitez encore ?

A catamaran is a type of boat with two parallel hulls, offering greater stability and comfort than a monohull. This makes for smoother, more spacious sailing, ideal for cruising.

Our catamarans range from 45 to 72 feet, and can accommodate between 6 and 14 passengers, depending on their size, configuration and the services required on board. They are among the 20% most spacious catamarans in the world.

Catamarans offer greater stability, comfort and space than monohulls. Their shallow draft allows access to shallow, isolated areas, ideal for exploring and swimming.

A cabin cruise allows you to book a cabin on a catamaran, sharing the boat with other passengers. It's an affordable and friendly way to discover the joys of this eco-responsible cruising style. At Catlante, we've carried over 100,000 passengers. We do our utmost to ensure that everyone has the same mindset or family configuration.

Our cruises are open to everyone, whether you're a couple, a group of friends, a family or even a solo traveler. It's an opportunity to meet other travel and discovery enthusiasts, in the slow tourism style. Children are welcome from the age of 7. Children as young as 1 year of age are also welcome.

Nos croisières couvrent une large gamme de destinations, notamment les Caraïbes, les Grenadines, Antigua et Barbuda, Saint-Barth, la Guadeloupe, la Méditerranée, notamment la Corse ou les îles de Provence et les Seychelles. Consultez notre site web pour une liste complète de nos destinations et des itinéraires proposés.

You can also contact our customer service department by phone at 0155209090 or by e-mail at [email protected]. We are available 7 days a week. Including all public holidays (especially Christmas, New Year's Day and May 1st).

Catlante's policy is clear and transparent: on a given cruise, the earlier you book, the better the rate. The price of the cruise increases according to the number of passengers. So there are never any last-minute discounts: a passenger who books in advance will always pay less than a passenger who books later. Always. So we advise our customers to book as early as possible.

We accept payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard), bank transfer, cheques and vacation vouchers.

Rates vary according to destination, length of cruise and season. Check our website for up-to-date prices and special offers.

Our rates generally include accommodation in single, double or triple cabins, full board, an open bar and soft water activities: flippers, masks and snorkels, kayaks, paddleboats. A flat-rate destination fee of €220 to €265, depending on the cruise, must be paid on site to the base manager or captain.

Yes, we offer gift vouchers that you can give to your loved ones. Contact our customer service department for more information and to personalize your gift.

There are no extra charges for luggage on board our catamarans. However, we recommend that you travel light and use soft luggage to facilitate storage in the cabins.

Yes, our cancellation policy depends on when you cancel in relation to your scheduled departure date. Full details of our cancellation policy are available on our website, in the general terms and conditions of sale, or can be provided by our customer service department. However, the right to make a mistake does exist and we accept cancellations free of charge and without any justification, within 5 days of your booking and if the scheduled departure is more than sixty days away.

Passport and visa requirements depend on your destination and nationality. Be sure to check each country's specific requirements before traveling. IMPORTANT: take into account the formalities of all the countries you pass through on your cruise. For example, you don't need a passport to travel to Martinique, the departure point for the Grenadines cruise, but you do need a passport valid for more than six months after the return date to enter the state of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

It depends on the destination. For example, the Caribbean is ideal from November to April, while the Mediterranean is perfect from June to September. The Seychelles are welcoming all year round. Consult our cruise calendar to choose the best period for your trip.

There is no dress code, but we recommend casual, comfortable clothing and swimwear/sarongs for daytime, and slightly dressier attire for dinners, such as a dress, skirt or canvas pants and blouse, if you wish.

To avoid seasickness, we recommend staying well hydrated, avoiding heavy meals before sailing, and spending time on deck where the fresh air can help. Seasickness medication is also available on board.

There are no specific restrictions, but we recommend that you limit the use of electronic devices to fully enjoy the cruising experience. Electrical outlets are available for charging your devices.

Yes, we often organize themed evenings, beach barbecues and other special events to entertain our passengers. The exact program varies according to cruise and destination.
