Formentera is the smallest and is the most southern part of the Balearic Islands, Spain. Formentera is located next to the larger sister island of Ibiza. This is a beach lover’s paradise! As it’s nearly flat, it is a perfect island for cycling, walking, snorkeling, and sailing.

Day 11 Mahon, Menorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Mahón (also known as Maó) is the capital of the Balearic Islands of Menorca.

The capital has an interesting mix of old and new architectural styles. SeaDream has arranged four separate and unique yachting land adventures that include Golf, Kayaking, Mountain Biking and “Mahon Musts”.

Day 12 Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Alghero is one of the most attractive coastal resorts on the northwest coast of Italy’s Sardinia island. Alghero combines its role as a tourist city as well as a thriving marina. This enables a year-round economy outside of the busy summer months. Some of the attractions include the Alghero Cathedral, The Madonna del Santo Rosario, the Torre del Portal, and Neptune’s Grotto. The entrance to the Neptune's caves and grottos are a remarkable series of deep marine caves located under the rocky headland of Capo Caccia, famous for its spectacular cliffs. As SeaDream is scheduled to anchor, we plan to offer water sports from the marina platform (Pending permission and local conditions).

Day 13-14 Bonifacio, Corsica, France

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Bonifacio is one of our favorite arrivals! As we approach, the Captain navigates along the limestone cliffs giving guests a sea view of incredible Bonifacio as well as the great Aragon steps leading to the water’s edge. Shortly after the pilot will embark and the Captain will turn the yacht around and back into this very impressive fjord-like marina. This could be one of our highest rated arrivals as the guests always find it both impressive and awe-inspiring.

Day 15 Golfo Aranci, Sardinia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Day 16 Civitavecchia, Rome, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Civitavecchia is a major port located in Rome, primarily utilized for maritime transportation of goods, as well as a fishing port. The commune’s name means “ancient town” and is one of the “Motorways of the Sea” in the Mediterranean, functioning as one of the main links between the mainland of Italy and Sardinia. The ancient name of the port was “Centumcellae,” first mentioned in a letter written by Pliny the Younger in 107 A.D., although scholars debate on whether the name was about the number of rooms of the Trajan Villa or the number of natural creeks on the coast. Civitavecchia is a part of the Lazio Territory, an area which was confirmed to have social groups since pre-historic times, and the modern town was built over a pre-existing settlement of the Etruscan people in 107-108 B.C.E. (who debated to have founded Rome). At the beginning of the 2nd century, the harbor and town of Centumcellae were simultaneously developed by Emperor Trajan in the territory of Aquae Tauri. As the town became more popular for ships traveling westbound, the Thermal Baths were constructed on the hill of Ficoncella. Centumcellae flourished in the Imperial Age, and by 538 A.D., it had become a Byzantine stronghold. In 728 A.D., it became a member of the Papal States. The Saracens raided Centumcellae many times in the 9th century, prompting Pope Leo VII to have a newer and more secure settlement built by 854. The town, then known as Civita Vetula, was under the rule of several lords, and the Popes temporarily lost control during the French Rule in 1798-1815. In 1870 it entered the Kingdom of Italy. Civitavecchia was severely damaged during WWII, destroying many of the ancient monuments including Forte Michelangelo, which would be rebuilt in the 1950s. Popular points of interest include the Forte Michelangelo, Terme Taurine, and Cattedrale di San Francesco. There is a wealth of Roman and Vatican architecture and tourists are encouraged to visit many of the museums and take the cultural tours available in this important seaport.

Day 17 Portovenere, Cinque Terre, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
One word – Incredible! Cinque Terre, Portovenere and the three Island of Palmaria, Tino, and Tinetto have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. They have been selected for being distinguished examples of the ways in which man has been able to modify and transform the environment without altering the beauty of the original natural landscape. Most of our valued guests will participate in the ever-popular “Cinque Terre: Don’t go Home Without It” Land Adventure. Others may enjoy the guided village walk or go hiking on several trails leading down the coast. Most guests will make a purchase of the amazing local pesto and we are fairly certain our Executive Chef will do the same. Be prepared for an incredible dinner al fresco this evening!

Day 18 Sanremo | Antibes, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Called Italy's mirror image of nearby Monte Carlo, Sanremo is made up of the same glitz and glam lifestyle as her neighbor. If you’re a gambler you’ll definitely want to plan on rolling the dice during your visit – this city has the oldest casino in all of Italy, the Casino Municipale.

Day 19 Antibes, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Historians indicate that Antibes was the first town founded by the Greeks on the Riviera coast. For a very long time, Antibes was the only town between Marseille and Italy. The temples, monuments and an immense 3500 seat amphitheater bear testimony to its ancient origins. Much of the protecting walls have remained intact including Fort Carre, which is one of the most beautiful examples of military architecture in Europe. Today the port is taken over by an incredible array of mega yachts. The historic town center is full of pretty squares and narrow streets, ideal for wandering and people-watching. Make sure you check out the cathedral and the old ramparts. Nearby Cap d'Antibes, there is a small peninsula of paradise, you can visit it by taking the sign-posted path following the coastline. The famous "Eden Roc" hotel is at the point of the "Cap". Ask one of the officers to lead a crew shoreside casual hike – you will not be disappointed. If that isn’t appealing, we are certain one of the organized land adventure will be.

Day 20 Saint-Tropez, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Saint-Tropez located on the French Riviera quite simply may be the most famous resort town in Europe.

Nearby you can explore some of the hill towns and visit the award-winning rose wineries. You can also visit neighboring Grimaud and Port Grimaud or just a little further out golf at a few highly rated courses. SeaDream anchors just off the break wall and tenders directly to the pier downtown.

Day 21 Saint-Tropez | Le Lavandou, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Le Lavandou is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It derives its name either from the flower lavender that is prevalent in the area, or more prosaicly from the local form of the Occitan name for lavoir, lavandor (for lavador, a public place for washing clothes). Le Lavandou is a seaside resort town, with all the trappings, such as discos and crowds, but also fine sandy beaches right alongside. It was a lovely seaside fishing port, built in 1880, destroyed in 1944, and rebuilt after the war. Today it has an active yacht marina, with the nearest section reserved for the fishing boats still plying their trade. A fish market is held there every morning from 8h-11h unless the weather prevents the boats from going out.

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Sanary-sur-Mer is a Provencal village located in the Var department in the Provences-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region of France. Most visitors fall in love with the town shortly after they arrive. The harbor has several traditional wooden boats called “pointus” that are used by the fisherman daily. They sell their catch each morning on the harbor front. Market day is always a special treat so plan accordingly. The nearby village of Bandol has some of the oldest vineyards in France. It’s an easy bike ride down the coast from Sanary-sur-Mer.

It is a very popular tourist destination and is famous for its steep cliffs (falaises) and the sheltered limestone inlets called Calanques. The wines of Cassis are white and rose, and not to be confused with creme de cassis, a specialty of Burgundy which takes its name from blackcurrants (cassis), not the village here. SeaDream anchors in the bay and offer a land adventure to the impressive Aix en Provence. Other options are taking a local boat to the Calanques, hiking along the coast, visiting some of the local vineyards, water sports, mountain biking or simply relaxing in a Balinese bed on the yacht.

Day 24 Nice, France | Disembark

Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. The city's famous seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ('the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest settlers to this seaside resort.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
