Here’s a great idea for a honeymoon excursion— seven days at sea sailing from Nice to the glamorous port of Saint-Tropez on Compagnie du Ponant’s Le Ponant yacht, an intimate, boutique vessel with two panoramic-view restaurants, a piano bar for after-dinner drinks and a bikini-worthy sun deck. This is a specifically designed honeymoon experience, offering newlyweds something special for their first adventure as a married couple. The emphasis here is on sailing through the romantically secluded Balearics before arriving back at the southeast coast of France.
Technically, we suppose, it’s a cruise, but it’s really more of a yachting excursion where the newlyweds can embark on a laid-back, low-key, destination-led cruise on a mostly “just you and me whenever we want” basis and there’s no focus on port calls. Guests can enjoy a five-star experience with French-inspired cuisine, 24-hour room service, evening entertainment and shore landings. In keeping with its romantic theme, seafaring couples are going to love it. Priced from $2,698.
