The French Riviera and Islands of the Mediterranean


London Nice Antibes France

VIP Outbound4Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to London Heathrow Airport and a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to Nice. Upon arrival, we transfer to nearby Antibes and the Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes (4T), where dinner is included this evening.


NIceNice has long been a favourite for British travellers and expatriates, evidenced in the name of its beautiful seafront Promenade des Anglais. Take a walk in their footsteps on a guided tour this morning and discover the cultural and architectural treasures of one of France’s most alluring cities. The afternoon is then at leisure to explore further or return to your hotel and simply settle beside the pool for some well-deserved relaxation.

Antibes – Cannes

Day 3 AntibesFollowing a leisurely morning soaking up the Riviera sunshine in Antibes, we transfer to Cannes, home to the world-famous film festival, and embark Royal Clipper (4T). This majestic vessel sets sail later in the evening.

Lerici, Italy

LericiIt was in the Villa Magni near Lerici that Shelley spent his last days before fatefully sailing his small boat into a storm in July 1822. Lord Byron, his contemporary and another Lerici resident, once swam across La Spezia Bay, later renamed Golfo dei Poeti (Gulf of Poets). Modern-day visitors will find this delightful stretch of coastline just as inspiring, particularly the Cinque Terre-like fishing villages of San Terenzo, Tellaro and Monte Marcello.

Portoferraio, Elba, Italy

Day 5 PortoferraioElba is perhaps most renowned as Napoleon’s place of exile, and from his villa in Portoferraio, he must have looked out over the ships in the harbour and dreamed of a glorious return to power. As well as this enthralling heritage, make a visit to a local vineyard and discover the remains of an ancient Etruscan civilisation.

Palombiaggia – Bonifacio, Corsica

Day 6 BonifacioThe ruggedly spectacular island of Corsica is our next port of call, and there are two distinct experiences to savour. In the morning, stroll the soft sands of Palombiaggia; and, in the afternoon, wander the bustling streets of the citadel town of Bonifacio, set dramatically around an ancient harbour.

Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

DAY 7 AlgheroThe enchantingly situated historic city of Alghero makes for a wonderful introduction to Sardinia. Its cobbled streets, lined with boutiques, bars and restaurants, are a delight to discover, as are its secluded bays and, a little further inland, its exceptional quality vineyards.

Porticcio Beach – Ajaccio, Corsica, France

Day 8 AjaccoAnother day of twin delights in Corsica begins with a morning stop at Porticcio, a seaside resort noted for its fine beaches which overlooks the capital across the sparkling Gulf of Ajaccio. Then, in the afternoon, we visit Ajaccio itself – birthplace of Napoleon, it has a rich history, but don’t miss the opportunity to appreciate the pretty harbour, the stylish shops and the sublime French-Italian fusion cuisine.

Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Day 9 Monte CarloMonaco is the fabled domain of princes and movie stars; home to the most glamorous motor race on earth and opulent casinos immortalised in film and fiction. Enjoy a (perhaps slightly envious) afternoon and evening amongst the gleaming mega-yachts of the marina, the exclusive boutiques and the exquisite restaurants of this gilt-edged playground.

Cannes – Nice – London

VIP InboundWe bid farewell to Royal Clipper at Cannes this morning and transfer to Nice Airport for a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to London Heathrow. On arrival you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.

Stateroom Amenities:Two Owner’s Suites at the ship’s stern have
interior stairway access from the Main Deck.


Measuring 355 square feet, each has a lavish master bedroom with a marble bathroom, whirlpool bathtub, mini-bar, 24-hour in-cabin service, a sitting lounge worthy of the finest mega yacht and a separate double sleeping area with bath. The Owner’s Suites may be connected and are available when the owner is not aboard.

Fourteen Deluxe Suites, each measuring 215 square feet, were the first with a private verandah on any sailing ship. The verandah has ample room for a pair of chairs and a table for outdoor relaxing or dining. The suite has a roomy double bed, which can be converted to two singles, and an adjacent sitting area overlooking the private verandah through a large window.

Deluxe Suites also have a large marble bath with tub and whirlpool, 24-hour in-cabin service, mini-bar and are finished with high-gloss dark woods.

Two Deluxe Deck Cabins sit side by side at the stern of the ship. Each measures 226 square feet and has a large window facing aft, and another of equal size facing the side deck with a view of the sea. Deck Cabins have a fixed double bed, whirlpool-equipped marble bathroom and mini-bar.




Ninety Outside Double Cabins are very roomy by sail ship standards at about 113-145 square feet.  All are dressed in traditional polished dark woods and brass accessories, and most have luxurious double beds that can convert to singles.

Note: Twenty-seven of the Outside Double

Cabins are convertible to triples by utilizing an additional upscale wooden framed bed that folds virtually out of sight during the day.

Six Inside Double Cabins each measure

108 square feet and have all the facilities of the Outside Double Cabins. There is a fixed double bed as well as an extra single bed that stores out of the way during the day.

All accommodations feature television, direct-dial phone, individual thermostat control, private safe, hair dryer, keyless entry, 220 volt (European) outlets and nightly turn-down service. The handsome wooden furniture in yacht-like fashion was created by Donald Starkey of England, who has designed all of the interiors and furnishings throughout Royal Clipper.


The casually elegant Clipper Dining Room

offers one, unhurried open-seating that can accommodate all passengers and officers at the same time. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, while dinner is a sit-down culinary celebration. A spiral staircase beginning in the Atrium ends in the heart of the three-level dining room allowing for a dramatic entrance. The atmosphere is festive but never intimidating.

Captain Nemo Underwater Lounge  Another first for any ship is the unique underwater lounge, with floodlit underwater views through submarine portholes when the ship is at anchor. This lounge is a comfortable setting for observing the marine world.

Wellness Facility  Located within the Captain Nemo Underwater Lounge, this facility pampers passengers with a spa and fitness area, massage room and a skin and body treatment center.

Piano Lounge  When passengers first arrive, they enter the ship via this grand lounge that serves as the “town square” social center. Piano tunes can be heard throughout the day and into the evening as passengers socialize, take a spin on the dance floor or get cozy in a booth and enjoy a cocktail. The glass bottom of the largest of the ship’s pools protrudes gracefully into the room, with several underwater portholes adding to the charm.

Tropical Bar  This indoor/outdoor facility is the perfect venue to enjoy the fresh sea air and a beverage while lingering on deck. A cold-buffet breakfast is served at 6 a.m. for early risers awake to watch the sun rise.

Library  Located at the aft end of Main Deck, the Library takes passengers back into a time of old-world elegance that is the perfect setting for soft conversations, quiet reading or a small meeting. Browse the volumes for the latest novel or contemplate the next move during a game of chess, bridge or backgammon. Sea views abound in this literary oasis.

Forward Observation Lounge  Passengers simply unwind with a book or pleasant conversation. The lounge also hosts cocktail receptions and lectures.

E-mail  Two computers are located in the Observation Lounge for outgoing passenger e-mail and Internet.

Watersports  Jump into the sea from the back of the ship via the marina. Passengers can take advantage of complimentary snorkeling, sunfish sailing, waterskiing and windsurfing – all without having to go ashore. Scuba diving is available for a fee, and certification is required. Three outdoor pools are located on the Sun Deck.

Lookout Stations

Created on each of the five masts some 60 feet above the Sun Deck. Stations have slatted teak deck, high safety rail and an all-weather comfortable teak settee for lounging while observing the action below.

Passengers wishing to visit the Lookout Stations slip on a ship-supplied safety vest and a watchful crew member on the deck keeps the safety line taut as the guest makes the easy ascent up one of the ratlines.

Bow Sprit – Spread out like a great porous blanket ahead of the bow and supported by the bowsprit, the famed net is braided of heavy gauge netting line and the perfect spot for a secure nap, leisurely chat or unhurried read. Dolphins sometimes are visible below, seeming to brush their tails in play against the churning water at the bow of the ship.

Balconies  Not far ahead of the Bridge, these diminutive lookout spots with a high safety rail hold two people at a time. Constructed out of steel to extend out from both port and starboard, there is nothing but racing seas below.
