Cruising the Mediterranean

For the next two weeks I will be cruising the coasts of France, Italy and Spain in style. One of my closest girlfriends has organized the trip for five of us to celebrate our college graduations.

The first week finds us boarding a private yacht in Nice, France.  We’ve already created a tentative itinerary but once we embark we are able to choose each destination as we travel.  Our floating mansion is called Desamis B and she boasts five luxurious cabins, fully stocked bars, lounging decks, a hot tub and a full staff including a world class chef to attend to our every need.  If I don’t make it back it’s not because I’m lost at sea, but rather because I will have discovered my permanent home on Desamis.

If we somehow manage to leave this beautiful yacht our second week will find us filing up the gangplank of the Regent Seven Seas Mariner, a boutique cruise ship catering to a mere 700 guests.

Obviously the cruise ship has a set itinerary so I can safely say we will be visiting the following cities:

  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Marseille (Provence), France
  • St. Tropez, France
  • Monte Carlo, Monaco
  • Florence, Italy
  • Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy
  • Sorrento/ Capri, Italy
  • Rome, Italy
