Mediterranean Grand Voyage October 21 to November 2 2017
Join us for a 12 Night sailing from Cannes to Lisbon aboard Royal Clipper, a true clipper ship where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht, with spacious accommodations, expansive teak decks, and two swimming pools. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.
Enjoy a yacht-like ambience, personalized service, elegant open-seating dining, and international cuisine on this “soft adventure cruise” that includes numerous water sports such as windsurfing, snorkeling, water-skiing, banana boating, and sunfish sailing. Scuba diving is available for a small fee.
Prices starting at $3,430 per person!
October 21 Cannes, France
Explore Cannes during the day before boarding the Royal Clipper between 4 pm and 6 pm, preparing for your sailing adventure
October 22 Bonifacio, Corsica - France
A sparkling Mediterranean paradise on the western coast of Corsica, it's clear that Napoleon's storied birthplace is special in more ways than one. The town is easily explored on foot, though it is hard to pry your eyes away from the harbor to venture farther inland.
October 23 Mahon, Menorca (Balearic Islands) - Spain
Gracious Georgian buildings climb the steep hills backing the Moll Ponent. Mahon's heritage includes the invention of mayonnaise and the first distillation of gin from juniper berries.
October 24 Ibiza (Balearic Islands) - Spain
Ibiza is a place where people hang out because, except for the medieval walls, you could almost think it was the Med's version of Key West. But away from the hustle of town, some lovely beaches await.
October 25 At Sea
Enjoy a relaxing day aboard Royal Clipper as we sail toward Motril, Spain.
October 26 Motril, Spain (Optional Tour Granada)
The town of Motril is located in the Spanish region of Andalucia on the Costa Tropical. Nestling at the foothills of the Sierra Lujar mountains, the town's coastal strip includes two main beaches - the busy Playa Poniente, and the quieter Playa Granada.
October 27 At Sea
Enjoy a relaxing day aboard Royal Clipper as we sail toward Morocco.
October 28 Safi, Morocco (Optional Tour Marrakesh)
Today, Safi is mainly modern, home to a fishing port and diversified industries. The old town which lies within the city is still very much alive. Here you may be tempted to buy pottery typical of this part of the region.
October 29 Casablanca, Morocco
Veiled by overlapping mantles of French, Arabian and African culture, Casablanca reveals new faces at every turn. The enormous Hassan II Mosque (holding 70,000 worshippers) is the new Morocco, while the fanciful Mauresque buildings in the Medina impart visions of pre-war Casablanca.
October 30 Tangier, Morocco
Tangier was the real model for the famous American film «Casablanca» with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It still retains its faded mongrel charm - not entirely Moroccan, European or African but a heady mix of all three.
October 31 Cadiz, Spain (Optional Tour Seville)
Cadiz called ‘‘the cup of silver'' is almost African in appearance, its streets are lined with palm trees, its churches topped with dome-like cupolas. Take advantage of our optional tours to Seville, the irresistible capital and cultural centre of Andalusia with its colourful and festive lifestyle.
November 1 At Sea
Enjoy a relaxing day aboard Royal Clipper as we sail toward Lisbon, Portugal.
November 2 Lisbon, Portugal
The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of history. Spreading out along the right bank of the Tagus, its downtown, the Baixa, is located in the 18th-century area around Rossio. The Alfama, one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa, still retains much of its original layout since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755.
12 nights aboard Royal Clipper including daily buffet breakfast and open seating for dinner.
