Transcript: One of the things that I like about ships of the size that Seabourn operates is that they’re large enough to have all the activities you could ever want, and yet they’re small enough to visit both marquee destinations and small ports of call that larger ships often can’t visit.
Today, for example, we’re in Saint-Tropez. A lot of the guests are off touring the town that Bridget Bardot put on the international map and others are on an excursion to Port Grimaud, which is a little like Venice here in the south of France.
On Seabourn, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the iconic destinations that you’ll visit on your voyage. In the south of France, you may prefer to spend your time wandering in Old Nice or scouting out a good sidewalk cafe in the small but charming coastal town called Le Levandou.
Stroll the sunny and colorful waterfronts of renowned places such as Villefranche or beautiful Antibes, where Pablo Picasso stayed for six months in 1946. Enjoy a day in Palamos, Spain, where the writer Truman Capote lived for a couple of years and penned his book In Cold Blood.
Seabourn provides a good mix of destinations for first-time cruisers and also for those who have “Been there, done that.” Visit Sanary sur Mer to snap a photo of this picturesque fishing village, then head out for an afternoon on traditional fishing boats.
Seabourn delivers experiences that are authentic, inspired and memorable, from charming villages to picture-postcard bays to marquee ports that all travelers want to check off their bucket lists. Only ships of this size can offer such a mix of destinations.
It really is the best of both worlds. You can spend the day touring beautiful places like these here in the south of France, then come back on board your Seabourn vessel to spend an elegant evening before sailing away to a new and exciting port of call. Cheers!
