You’ll also explore the lesser-known gems of Sanary-sur-Mer, once a favored gathering spot for the literary elite, and Villefranche, a charming resort town.

Day 1 Embark in Nice, France

The “Queen of the Côte d’Azur” and the second-largest city in France, Nice offers beautiful views of hilltop villages, Art Deco façades, and a stunning coastline along the blue-green Mediterranean Sea. You’ll embark Tere Moana here and enjoy time to settle into your stateroom before the ship sets sail this evening for your European vacation.

Day 2 Sanary sur Mer, France

Its location on the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France made this quiet coastal resort town a favorite of literary luminaries during the 1930s, including Aldous Huxley, who wrote Brave New World here. It was in the waters off its coast that Jacques Cousteau developed his deep-sea diving equipment, celebrated in the Diving Museum located in a 13th-century bell tower that also offers panoramic views. You can also admire views of the coast and the islands beyond at the 16th-century Chapel of Notre-Dame de Pitié, and visit Saint-Nazaire, a 19th-century Gothic Revival church. Or perhaps you'll simply bask on the beach here in one of the sunniest villages in France.

Day 3 St Tropez, France

This historic town on the French Riviera has long been an inspiration for artists, writers, and filmmakers and is renowned for its nude beaches. Gourmet dining and a lively nightlife are also features of this glamorous resort, and Tere Moana remains here until midnight, so that you have a chance to experience it.

Day 4 Antibes, France

A Mediterranean resort town on the Côte d’Azur, Antibes has seen a storied history. Its Château Grimaldi was built on the foundations of an ancient Greek acropolis and Roman fort beginning in 1384 and became the home of the Grimaldi family, who ruled the city until 1608 and still rule the tiny principality of Monaco. Pablo Picasso used the castle as a studio for several months in 1946, and you can view works donated by the artist himself at the Picasso Museum in the château. Explore the Old Town, which is considered the cultural heart of the region. And perhaps you’ll delight in the scent of roses and carnations in the city’s marketplaces here in the heart of one of Europe’s largest flower-growing regions.

Day 5 Villefranche, France

In Villefranche, a charming resort town on France’s Côte d’Azur, perhaps you’ll stroll the narrow cobbled streets of the romantic Old Town … view the 16th-century citadel … visit the 14th-century Chapelle Saint-Pierre (Saint Peter’s Chapel) and Église Saint-Michel (Saint Michael’s Church) … or follow the ancient Rue Obscura, a covered walkway near the waterfront. Or simply relax on sandy beaches or at the city’s terrace cafés.

Day 6 Monte Carlo, Monaco

Ruled by the Grimaldi family since 1297, with only brief interruptions, the Principality of Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country (after the Vatican). Sandwiched between mountains and the sea, Monte Carlo is a district of the country and home of the famous Grand Casino. Monte Carlo’s steep and winding streets have been featured in numerous films, including Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief” starring Grace Kelly, who would become Princess Grace of Monaco upon her marriage to Rainier III in 1956. Besides the casino, attractions of this glamorous district include numerous museums, churches, monuments, and gardens. Tere Moana stays overnight before continuing on your Mediterranean cruise, allowing you to experience Monte Carlo at its liveliest: after dark.

Day 7 Monte Carlo, Monaco / San Remo, Italy

From Monte Carlo this morning, sail to San Remo, the capital of Italy’s flower-growing industry since the end of the 19th century. It also is renowned as the home of one of the most famous casinos in the world. While here, you might view the onion-dome Russian Orthodox Church, finished in 1913 and modeled after Moscow’s San Basilio. Be sure to pay a visit to La Pigna (literally, “Pinecone”), the oldest part of town, a tight cluster of pedestrian-only, narrow winding streets and historic buildings leading to beautiful Gardens of Queen Elena and the stunning, 17th-century Madonna della Costa sanctuary at the top of the hill. Inhale the fragrance of roses, carnations, buttercups, and more in greenhouses around the city. And enjoy the white-sand beaches that front a crystalline sea

Day 8 Disembark in Nice, France

Your idyll along the French Riviera draws to a close where it began: in glittering Nice. Enjoy breakfast on board before bidding your captain and crew a fond farewell this morning.
