Essence of Europe

Bask in the glamour of the French and Italian Rivieras

Hike the rugged coastline of the Cinque Terre, unwind in the sparkling beach town of Calvi, and bask in the glitz and glamour of fabulous Monte Carlo.

Cruise the Côte d’Azur to Antibes and its marvelous Picasso Museum before being welcomed into Provençal France and the historic port city of Marseille. Explore Spanish history and culture in Roses and Palma de Mallorca and the stunning blend of contemporary and baroque architecture in Valencia. Your time aboard Riviera will end in cosmopolitan Barcelona, Spain’s gem of art and culture.
