Day 1 - Cannes

For those looking to explore, cruise to the Îles de Lérins; a hushed haven only a short distance off-shore but a world away from the buzz of Cannes. Steeped in history, the islands have been home to a monastic community since the 5th Century. Soak up the stunning scenery from the foredeck and dip below the surface for a vibrant snorkel.

As the sun dips below the horizon, make the quick trip back to Cannes for an overnight anchorage. Abuzz with life, a summer evening on La Croisette is truly spectacular; get your dates right and you will experience the famed summer firework display from the aft deck, which is spectacular!
