    Ports

    Day 1 | Nice, France

    Jewel of the French Riviera

    Nice, capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera, sits on the pebbly shores of the Baie des Anges. Founded by the Greeks and later a retreat for 19th-century European elite, the city has also long attracted artists. Former resident Henri Matisse is honored with a career-spanning collection of paintings at Musée Matisse. Musée Marc Chagall features some of its namesake's major religious works.

    Day 2 | Porto Fino, Italy

    CRUISE TO THE PLAYGROUND OF THE RICH & FAMOUS

    Picture a tiny town of pastel houses lining the shore of a small harbor full of sleek yachts, crowned by a castle and backed by verdant hills dotted with villas. Throw in charming waterside restaurants specializing in seafood, and a national park with miles of hiking trails among chestnut and olive groves, where you can work off the pasta that in Italy is just the first course, between the antipasto and the main.

    Now you know why this quaint little fishing village became a playground of the rich and famous, and why you should consider joining them.

     

    Day 3 - 4 | Saint Tropez, France

    VOYAGE TO THE GLAMOROUS HEART OF THE FRENCH RIVIERA

    Saint-Tropez invokes images of overly tanned bodies in tiny bathing suits, luxury yachts, white sandy beaches, and the over-the-top glitz and glamour of the Côte d’Azur. And while this isn’t too far from reality, we say, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

    Stroll along the harbor and marvel at the yachts, many of which dwarf the surrounding buildings (and then smile happily to yourself, knowing the Azamara ship you arrived on is “la pièce de résistance”). Join other jet setters on one of the fabulous beaches, some of which—like Tahiti Beach, made famous by Bridget Bardot—are clothing optional. Ooh, la la!

    Take your time window-shopping along rue Gambetta and the surrounding side streets. If Chanel and Dior are not quite what you had in mind, head to a local boutique to pick up herbes de Provence and lavender, plus kitchen items like olive-wood serving bowls and hand-stitched Provencal tablecloths.

    For lunch, if you don’t feel like footing the bill at the infamous beachside Club 55, the old fishing quarter La Ponche has plenty of seafood restaurants serving the day’s freshest catches and refreshing rosés, a regional specialty. Just be sure to get a spot with good views for people watching; it’s practically a sport for Tropéziens.

     

    Day 5 | Palma de Majorca, Spain

    VOYAGE TO A LIVELY & STYLISH CAPITAL CITY

    The original city of Palma dates back to Roman times, and modern-day residents of the old quarter are still digging up artifacts in their gardens. Balanced on a seawall above the marina is the amazing gothic Cathedral, icon of the city, with some of the world’s largest stained-glass windows. Also, high on the artistic scale is the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Art featuring works by masters including Picasso, Miró, Gris, and Dali.

    Mother Nature’s aesthetic achievements can be found in the Caves of Drach—mystical caverns where the play of shadow and light on the rock formations stimulates the imagination.

     

    Day 5 - 6 | Ibiza, Spain

    VOYAGE TO SUNNY DAYS & DAZZLING NIGHTS

    Mountainous Ibiza is known as Isla Blanca, the White Island, perhaps because of the dazzling white walls of the traditional houses and churches that make up the small villages dotting its landscape. Its atmosphere is reminiscent of Greek islands, making it unique among the Balearic Isles, and its rustic beauty attracts artists, as well photo and film shoots.

    Once you’ve explored the sights of the island, be sure to take a nap and rest up for the evening’s festivities: Ibiza’s nightlife is legendary, and not to be missed.

    Mother Nature’s aesthetic achievements can be found in the Caves of Drach—mystical caverns where the play of shadow and light on the rock formations stimulates the imagination.

     

    Day 7 | Valencia, Spain

    A CHARMING MIX OF OLD & NEW

    Old World charm meets modern architectural genius in Valencia. Gothic riches abound in the palaces and mansions of a 15th century golden age. The Cathedral has a more recent, and opulent, baroque facade, and the Silk Exchange sports an exterior resembling a medieval fortress and a main hall filled with palm-tree-shaped columns and enigmatic carvings.

    Prepare to be stunned by the innovative and avant-garde buildings of the new millennium. The City of Arts and Sciences, by world-famous architect Santiago Calatrava, is a dazzling cultural complex set in a sunken park, the likes of which you have never seen before.

     

    Day 8 | Barcelona, Spain

    CRUISE TO THE LIVELY CITY OF GAUDI

    Dynamic Barcelona is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. Though his materials were stone and metal, his forms were organic, awash in curves, swirls, and colors. His masterpiece is the amazing Church of the Sagrada Familia, colossal, yet unfinished, though construction began in 1882.

    A contemporary contribution to the scene is Ricardo Bofill’s post-modernist National Theater of Catalonia, an imaginative combination of classical and modern design, with a greenhouse-like lobby.

    Ports

    Day 1 | Nice, France

    “NICE LA BELLE”

    With streets full of colorful buildings, palm-lined boulevards, and a harbor of turquoise blue, you may feel like you’ve somehow stepped into a living painting when you arrive in Nice. And in fact, the clear air and soft light of the city has inspired some of the artistic greats like Chagall and Matisee—both of whom have museums dedicated to their works here. But no need to pinch yourself, Nice is just that nice.

    Often called “the Queen of the Riviera”, the epitome of Nice’s famous joie de vivre can be found in full swing on the Promenade des Anglais. Hugging the Baie des Anges the promenade features stunning views, especially at sunset.
    Don’t miss the opulent Hôtel Negresco where royalty and high society have held court since 1912, or the art deco Palais de la Méditerranée. If your feet need a break, hop on one of the numerous Velo Bleu bikes available and enjoy the feeling of the warm sea breeze fluttering through your hair.

     

    Head for the heart of the city to the picturesque Place Rosetti to visit the cathédrale Saine-Réparate and the world-famous Fennochios’s ice cream and sorbet shop. After dark, the square becomes an open air-dance club complete with dramatic lighting that casts a magical glow on the ancient cobblestones.

     

    Day 2, 3, 4 | Cannes, France

    CRUISE TO CANNES—BECAUSE WE CAN-CAN-CANNES!

    Lights, camera, Cannes! Perhaps best known for the eponymous film festival that happens ever year, this charming port has plenty more to see than just celebrities and socialites. (Though, keep your eyes peeled because you never know who might be driving those Ferraris and Maseratis!)

    Get ready for your close-up with a stroll along Le Promenade de la Croisette, the place to see and been seen in Cannes. Find the perfect pair of oversized sunglasses in one of the many luxury boutiques (Prada, anyone?) and then sit back and people watch with a glass of rosé at a chic waterfront café.

     

    To see more of this seaside paradise, head to Le Suquet (the old town) to traverse winding cobblestone streets and zigzagging staircases. Gourmands will want to head for rue Meynardiers for shops carrying delicacies like creamy Brie and colorful macarons. The street also leads to Marché Forville, a covered market, where you’ll find local fig jam, charcuterie, and fresh flowers to tempt your senses.

     

    Day 5, 6 | Villefranche, France

    JOURNEY TO THE EXCLUSIVE HEART OF THE COTE D’AZUR

    Though its name may not be familiar, there’s a good chance you’ll recognize much of Villefranche while walking its beachfront and twisting, cobblestone streets. That’s because it’s been a cinematic hot spot for years, and movies such as To Catch a Thief, An Affair to Remember, and Never Say Never Again have all been shot here.

    Behind the scenes, though, this resort town—located 20 minutes west of Nice—is considered one of the French Riviera’s most exclusive spots. (It’s also one of Europe’s most sought-after residential areas, but not to worry: When you’re on a Desire Cruise, your very own boutique hotel travels with you.)

    Once your hotel tenders in one of the deepest natural harbors in the Mediterranean, it’s time to explore. Stroll along the pier, where colorful fishing boats are matched only by the colorful characters who tend their nets. Or dig your toes into the sands of beaches like Plage des Marinières, Plage de la Darse, or Plage de l’Ange Gardien.

    Meander the labyrinth of winding stairways and narrow streets in the Old Town—home to many of Villefranche’s most notable attractions, including Citadelle Saint-Elme, Chapelle Saint-Pierre, and Église Saint-Michel. A quick car ride to the east will bring you to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, a 20th century villa that overlooks nine gardens, each with a distinct theme.

    If your travels have you needing to refuel, you’re in luck. No day in Villefranche is truly complete without indulging in fine French cuisine, flavored with a distinct Mediterranean influence. Dine on local specialties like boeuf Rossini and fresh foie gras, or watch the world go by at Wine Pier—which is just as scenic as the name implies.

     

    Day 8 | Barcelona, Spain

    A COSMOPOLITAN MASTERPIECE

    Barcelona is a cosmopolitan masterpiece. With a history rich in art and architecture, medieval, Gothic, and modern influences can be seen all over the city. Start at the waterfront and stroll up the shady, tree-lined Las Ramblas boulevard and discover some of the city’s best shopping and bustling cafes.

    St. Maarten

    When the Spanish closed their colonial fort on St. Maarten in 1648, a few Dutch and French soldiers hid on the island and decided to share it. Soon after, the Netherlands and France signed a formal agreement to split St. Maarten in half, as it is today. Philipsburg displays its Dutch heritage in its architecture and landscaping.

    The island offers endless stretches of beach, beautiful landscapes and great shopping. Discover the undersea world of coral reefs and exotic fish as you take a snorkeling expedition through Shipwreck Cove. Rendezvous at one of the newest and trendiest restaurants in French St. Maarten.

    Ports

    Athens (Piraeus), Greece

    CRUISE TO THE CRADLE OF EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION

    You could spend a lifetime in Europe’s oldest city and still not see everything it has to offer. Settled over 3,500 years ago, Athens is like a mythological crossroads of the past and present, where modern buildings share the skyline with spectacular ruins like the Parthenon.
    To see a veritable “greatest hits” line-up, make your way to Vasilissis Amalias Street for the archaeological walk. Winding through the heart of the ancient city, the route leads to landmarks like the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, Arch of Hadrian, and of course, the Acropolis.

    After all that archaeological digging, metaphorically speaking, you’re probably going to work up quite an appetite. So, head to the Central Market for fresh fruit and veggies, nuts, olives, and Grecian cheese like feta, graviera, and aged kefalotyri. (Snacking is not a bad idea since Athenians usually don’t head out for dinner until at least 9:00 PM.)

    And if you need a little extra pick-me-up to make it that late, have a frappe—a Greek creation of strong iced coffee with milk and sugar. Neighborhoods like Pangrati, Exarhia, and Petralona feature fantastic tavernas where you can rub elbows with the locals while dining on the sidewalk well into the wee hours of the night. Opa!

    Mikonos, Greece

    CRUISE TO AN IRRESISTIBLE PICTURE-POSTCARD DESTINATION

    Mykonos looks like a scene straight from a postcard: whiter-than-white houses with brilliant blue shutters, vibrant bougainvillea, and a beautiful blue harbor drenched in warm sunlight. Iconic 16th century Venetian windmills stand in a row, their paddles spinning in the wind, and the district of Little Venice, which rises like a brightly colored wall coming out of the sea.

    But beneath the idyllic scenery, Mykonos is vibrant and cosmopolitan, with a penchant for all-night parties and hedonistic good times. By day, stroll along the maze-like cobblestone streets (originally designed to thwart pirate attacks), exploring artists’ shops and enjoying a glass or two of ouzo.

    As soon as the sun goes down, it’s time to let loose. Known as “the Ibiza of Greece”, Mykonos has a serious party scene that’s not for the faint of heart.

    Mykonos is also a perfect jumping off point for Delos. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the uninhabited island is said to be the birthplace of the twin deities Apollo (god of the sun) and Artemis (goddess of the moon). So, it’s little wonder so many flock here to worship the sun by day, and dance beneath the moon at night.

    Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey

    CRUISE TO EPHESUS, AN AGE-OLD CIVILIZATION

    Sure, we could chat about the resort town of Kusadasi and its beaches and restaurants, or nearby places like Dilek Peninsula National Park, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction in this neck of the woods is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome, here are just a few of the incredible sights just waiting to be gobbled up! (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.)There’s the Library of Celsus, still magnificent almost 2,000 years later, and the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre, where St. Paul used to preach. Stretching from this jaw-dropping amphitheatre to the harbor is the marble-made Arcadian Street. Stroll past the marketplaces, colonnades, and fields of wild fennel, and into bath complexes that once offered piped-in hot water and a sauna.Surrounding Ephesus, the sites are equally spellbinding. Explore the ruins of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; the Basilica of St. John, which stands over the believed burial site of John the Apostle; and the House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days. (And see what it feels like to be truly struck with awe.)

    Marmaris, Turkey

    TURKISH RIVIERA: YES, THERE IS SUCH A THING

    Marmaris, Turkey, is a beautiful port on the Turkish Mediterranean that is said to be the location of the courtship between Antony and Cleopatra. For those cruise passengers wanting to pay homage to Cleopatra, enjoy a shore excursions tour to Sedir Island.

    Marmaris is a pedestrian friendly city. Be sure and visit Marmaris Castle. Getting there is half the battle, but the steep climb is well worth the effort. See the Turkish flag flying high from the top of the castle, with a 270-degree breathtaking view from the top.

    Santorini, Greece

    CRUISE TO THE GEM OF THE AEGEAN

    It’s been said the sunset from Oia on the island of Santorini is the most beautiful in the world. But you don’t have to wait until dusk to see your share of postcard-worthy views. Santorini is stunning any time of day.The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car—or if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 zigzagging steps to the top. The white cobblestone streets bustle with shops, tavernas, and cafés perfect for sampling the tomatoes and white eggplant for which Santorini is renowned.If you’re feeling ambitious, hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village. Plan your day accordingly to “schedule” yourself on a patio enjoying a glass of Vinsanto (a sweet, strong dessert wine) as the sun sinks into the sea, and then make up your own mind about the village’s famed sunset.Drive by black, white, and red volcanic beaches and head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past.
