Star Clippers Offers Authentic and Affordable French Riviera Vacations

Star Clippers (Logo)The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur for its dazzling blue water and clear skies, is a sun-drenched slice of heaven along France’s southeastern coast.

A longtime vacation hot spot for A-list celebrities and the setting for many a James Bond film, the region has a reputation as one of the most glamorous and breathtaking destinations in the Mediterranean. And while it’s true that the Côte d’Azur is still a magnet for the rich and famous, you don’t have to be either to enjoy this magical part of the world on a Star Clippers’ unique sailing adventure.

Star Clippers offers a variety of seven-day sailings in and around the French Riviera onboard the 166-guest Star Flyer, starting at an affordable $1,930 per person. Designed to reflect the proud heritage of traditional tall ships, Star Clippers ships are thoroughly modern vessels that marry the romance of the sailing era with the comforts and amenities of modern day. In other words, the ideal vessel on which to arrive into ports like St. Tropez and Cannes for a day of leisure.

Because of its relatively small size, Star Flyer can drop anchor in out of the way ports that the big ships can’t reach. On the Corsica and French Riviera itinerary sailing round trip from Cannes, a visit to Plage Saint Antoine in stunning Corsica puts guests in walking distance of a secluded beach surrounded by dramatic mountain ranges. The Ligurian Sea sailing calls on ports in Italy and France, including the islands of Elba, Sardinia and Corsica as well as fabled Monaco, the domain of princes and movie stars.

Visiting Monaco during the Grand Prix races is a must-do for racing fans, and Star Flyer offers two sailings in 2025 designed to put guests at the center of the action. The Grand Prix Trials sailing round trip out of Cannes on May 17 and the Grand Prix Finals sailing departing Cannes on May 24, 2025 are designed to call on Monaco in time for the events—without the worry or expense of finding a hotel during the busiest time of year.

A Star Clippers sailing includes most everything under one fee—your cabin, three delicious meals a day, entertainment, the assistance of knowledgeable cruise director, and transportation to and from the ports via tender boats—making it easy to stick to a budget. It also affords the luxury of unpacking your suitcase just once, no lugging it across cobblestone streets or worrying about misplacing it, while waking up in a different destination each day.

And in addition to saving your budget, a Star Clippers sailing also helps to save something even more precious—your time. Instead of rushing from train station to hotel and back again, guests on Star Clippers’ tall ships can relax and enjoy the thrill of sailing into each port taking it in from the sea before stepping on land.

To help make your French Riviera vacation dreams even easier to achieve, Star Clippers is offering guests a $400 per cabin air credit plus a complimentary four-hour WiFi package when booking select sailings by May 31, 2024. Offer includes 2024 and 2025 Mediterranean sailings ranging from seven to 16 nights. Offer is valid for residents of North, Central and South America only.

For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travelers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Central America. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 166 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.
