Day 1 Cannes, France | Embark

Glittering Cannes is the archetypal Mediterranean resort city discovered by wealthy English nobles who came to the sunny south of France to escape their drafty old castles during the dreary British winters. Cannes’ high flying lifestyle has attracted notables and the notorious ever since. Every year, the stars flock to celebrate the Cannes Film Festival at the colossal Palais des Festivals.

Day 2 Santa Margherita, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Santa Margherita is an elegant seaside resort nestling east of Genoa. The town is surrounded by hills from the top of which are breathtaking views over the Costa dei Delfini. The harbor where many boats and luxury yachts are moored has a lively social life with bars and restaurants that often host parties and folk shows.

Day 3 L'ile Rousse, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Crowded with yachts flying burgees hailing from the world's most prestigious yacht clubs, the harbor of St. Florent is a regatta of colors. Take an excursion to the peninsula of Cap Corse, where medieval watchtowers dot the cliff tops every few miles.

Day 4 East Corisca Beach | Bastia, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
It's amazing in this day and age to find a Mediterranean city that looks like it stepped right out of the travel diary of a 19th-century Grand Tour. Bastia's gracious Italianate buildings were created to house the administrative offices of the capital of Haute Corse.

Day 5 Portoferraio, Elba, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
From his villa in Portoferraio, Napoleon, the exiled Emperor of France, looked out over the waiting ships in the harbor and dreamed of returning to glory. Enjoy a local vineyard tour, and near Portoferraio, discover the remains of an ancient Etruscan civilization.

Day 6 Porto Vecchio, Corsica

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The town of Porto Vecchio has two main areas to explore: the citadel and old town, and the marina. The fascinating citadel and streets of the old town date from the 16th century, when the Genoese controlled Corsica, so allow time to wander around the area. The small marina is attractive and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants overlooking the harbor, a perfect place to spend a summer evening.

Porto Cervo in the heart of Costa Smeralda is a luxury destination that plays host to many celebrities and VIPs throughout the peak summer season.
