SOME of the most secluded and stunning ports of call on the French and Italian Rivieras that are too small to allow visits by mega cruise liners, will feature on five very special sailings of the world's highest-rated boutique motor cruiser, SeaDream I in October and November of this year.
The 7-night sailings will include Rome's port of Civitavecchia to Cannes on October 1 and 22, Cannes round-trip on October 8, Cannes to Civitavecchia (October 15) and Cannes to Malaga (October 29.)
Amongst ports of call depending on sailings chosen will be Monte Carlo, Capri, Elba, Villefranche-sur-Mer, St Tropez, Portofino, Livorno, Porto Ercole, Sorrento, Barcelona, Valencia, and Bonifacio and Calvi on the island of Corsica.
Highlights can include shopping for and sampling local delicacies at the local market in St Tropez with SeaDream I's chef as he buys for that night's dinner, taking a guided village walk of Cinque Terre (the Five Villages,) or hiking Portovenere's famous hills.
And on sailings that include Monte Carlo, Bonifacio or St Tropez there are overnight stays in these ports to enjoy all they offer.
Defined as "Yachting, Not Cruising" because with a maximum of just 112-guests served by 95 crew it is like holidaying with family or friends aboard your own yacht, prices start from US$4926pp twin-share.
And this includes premium drinks from the open bars, wines at lunch and dinner, power and sail water-sports where locally permitted, a 30 international course golf simulator, onboard gratuities, and Government charges and taxes.
