Discover the architecture of Spain and the artistic legacy of southern France aboard Sea Cloud II

Following a drive through the city to admire the extraordinary works of Gaudí, embark Sea Cloud II in Barcelona. Sail to Port-Vendres, France, and continue to Perpignan to discover the 800-year-old Palace of the Kings of Mallorca. View the fine art collections of lively Marseilles, from the canvases of Rubens and Courbet at the Musee des Beaux Arts to those of Picasso and other modernists at the Musee Cantini. Step ashore in Hyeres to explore the Romanesque Church of St. Louis before sailing to Porquerolles, a tiny island dotted with gorgeous beaches. At the Musee de l'Annonciade in St. Tropez, see how the Pointillists depicted the colors and light of this picturesque port, then sail to Nice to visit nearby Vence and the Rosary Chapel, designed entirely by Matisse. Conclude in St.-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to marvel at the magnificent gardens of Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. In honor of Father's Day, each dad on board will be offered a special seaside lunch for two in the charming port of Collioure.

An optional three-day prelude in Barcelona and three-day postlude in Nice are offered.

Please call for availability.
