May 24, 2023 – Arrival into Marseille, France to board the yacht. Settle into your suite before departure.
Founded in 600 BC, Marseille is the oldest city in France and its third largest metropolitan area. A must-see is the 19th-century basilica, Notre Dame de la Garde, which sits at the highest point in the city. Also worth a visit is the water fountain at Palais Longchamp, built under the reign of Napoleon III. Marseille is considered the birthplace of bouillabaisse, so make time to stop for a bowl of this famous seafood stew in the Old Port. You might also wish to drive through the Provençal countryside to Aix-en-Provence, a charming town best known as the home of impressionist painter Paul Cézanne
May 25, 2023 – Saint-Tropez, France
A jetsetter haven, Saint-Tropez is best known for its designer shopping, drink-and-dance-‘til-dawn nightlife, and ritzy beach clubs like Le Club 55 and Nikki Beach. After all, this is where French screen goddess Brigitte Bardot popularized the bikini in the 1950s, and to this day Bardot makes her home here. But another side of this once humble fishing village can be found in the hills far above the beachfront. Walk the narrow cobblestone streets and visit the 17th-century citadel for stunning views of the port.
May 26, 2023 – Nice, France
Set between the beautiful Baie des Anges and the Alps, the sunny capital of la Côte d’Azur has long been admired for its beauty and sophistication. One of France’s oldest cities, Nice blends its urban verve with plenty of seaside charm, a fantastic local food scene and a heritage that’s steeped in pretty Italianate influences. In the narrow streets of Vieille Ville you’ll find charming piazzettas, cozy cafés, traditional stores and a famous flower and grocery market. Take a stroll in the Place Massena, the city’s impressive 19th century main square, or head to the iconic Promenade des Anglais, which showcases Belle Epoque grandeur alongside its lively beach scene. Take a seat at one of the promenade’s bistros and dine on some superb ‘cuisine niçoise’.
Ritz Carlton Yacht
A voyage with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers an unprecedented opportunity to be untethered. Here, freedom and flexibility allow immersion in life’s exceptional experiences; exploration of earth’s exquisite and unexpected hideaways; and stirring of passions and curiosities that create new and deepened connections.
Like the slower pace lifestyle of a superyacht, life on board is laid back and casual, with a sense of freedom and flexibility.
Guests can enjoy in-suite dining or visit one of our world-class onboard restaurants for curated menus incorporating local ingredients and Michelin star quality.
May 27-28, 2023 – Monte Carlo, Monaco
Perhaps no port of call is better designed to welcome a luxury yacht than Monte Carlo, where some of the most splendid vessels in the world make their home. At this playground for the rich and famous, the only thing more spectacular than the yachts filling the harbor are the luxury cars driving the winding streets that host the annual Grand Prix. Verdant mountains ascend abruptly behind the lavish high-rises lining the bay, and perched on the cliff is the Palace of the Prince, where the Changing of the Guard attracts onlookers each morning at 11:55. The nearby Cathedral of Monaco holds the tomb of beloved Princess Grace and other royalty. Prince Albert I founded the city’s remarkable oceanographic museum, once curated by Jacques Cousteau, and Prince Charles III established the elaborate Monte Carlo Casino, where high rollers try their luck and James Bond famously sips his martinis.
May 29, 2023 – Sailing Time
With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favorite book.
May 30, 2023 – Olbia, Sardinia, Italy
From spectacular beaches to prehistoric relics to a sublime culinary scene, Sardinia is a treat for any traveler. The National Archaeological Museum in Olbia lends historical context by illuminating the island’s ancient pre-Nuraghic culture as well as more recent naval history. Just outside of Olbia, get a firsthand look at Sardinia’s rich archaeological heritage at the Tomb of the Giants, a Nuraghic monument dating back 4,000 years. Of course, any visit to Sardinia must include exploration of the famed Costa Smeralda, a winding coastline of pristine beaches in hues from pearl to pink lining impossibly clear waters that deepen to vivid turquoise. Rocky outcrops and a backdrop of green hills complete the seascape, where the only challenge is choosing which powdery sands to call your own. For a more energetic vibe, join the jet set in the designer boutiques, gourmet restaurants and chic lounges of nearby Porto Cervo, sipping Sardinian wine as you take in the scene.
Disembarkation: Rome, Italy
May 31, 2023- Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
An amazing amalgam of sights and sounds, Rome is a kinetic tapestry stimulating every sense. The ring of church bells and honks of early morning traffic echo off the weathered stone of ancient buildings. Office workers dash past fruit stands and sidewalk cafés in the shadows of elegant palace façades. Meanwhile, tourists make their way from piazza to piazza, monument to monument, church to church: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica. From the sculptures of the ancients to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes to the Baroque fountains of Bernini, Rome’s art and architecture are unsurpassed. Here the day-to-day life of a busy European metropolis intermingles with many of the most recognizable monuments ever created. Rome belongs not only to Italy, but to the world. Here
