Symphony of Flavors, Culture & History

Staying overnight in London, you'll have time to explore its many landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Bridge, Big Ben and the London Eye. But you can also seek out its hidden gems like the British Library, where you may see a Leonardo da Vinci notebook. Sitting within picturesque scenes of the Normandy region where the Seine River opens is the charming town of Honfleur. Sip on a glass of Calvados – brandy made from the region's famous apples – while gazing out at colorful vistas that inspire a sense of artistry. The fabulous vineyards of the UNESCO-listed Bordeaux offer more wine than you could possibly try. On the northern edge of the Iberian Peninsula lies Bilbao, a city with historical ties to the Basque country. Its best-known museum, The Guggenheim, stands as a shining example of some of the most innovative 20th-century designs from renowned architect Frank Gehry.

Oct 02 London (Tower Bridge), England

London (Tower Bridge), England

London is a fascinating city with storied landmarks, iconic attractions and countless hidden gems. As we navigate the famous River Thames, we pass renowned sights like Greenwich, the Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory and historic locales that have made cinematic history. Our small yacht allows us to dock near the Tower Bridge, sailing under its impressive span, and come closer to the HMS Belfast, a historic ship known worldwide with a story that sparks your curiosity. Photographers often want to head toward central London near the Westminster Bridge. With Big Ben and Westminster Palace on one side and the London Eye on the other side of the river, it’s the best spot for the ultimate picture of the English capital. Among the lesser-known highlights of London is the British Library, where you may see a scribbled page of Beatles songwriting or a Leonardo da Vinci notebook. There are some stunning illuminated scripts and landmark-scientific items too. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, head to Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens.

Located along the southern bank of the Seine River, the charming port city of Honfleur is characterized by its picturesque houses with slate-covered facades, a captivating aesthetic that has been many the subject and inspiration for painters through history. While France is world-renowned for its cuisine, Normandy stands out as a foodie destination. Local Camembert, Livarot and Neufchatel cheeses are delicious enough to entice travelers to stay, but a trip to Normandy is not complete without sampling the tripes à la mode de Caen, a French stew combining tripe with ox feet, vegetables, herbs and spices, cider and apple brandy. From Honfleur, you could choose to make a trek to the City of Lights, Paris, the fashion capital of the world. Iconic tourist attractions like the Louvre, Versailles and the Eiffel Tower make it easy to see how the city has enjoyed such lasting power in the minds of wanderers and locals alike, but its smaller neighborhoods like Montmartre and Le Marais are where everyday life truly shine.

St. Peter Port (Guernsey), Channel Islands

Legend has it that the enchanted land of St. Peter Port was invaded by fairies once upon a time. For proof, head west to the edge of the island to find a mysterious Fairy Ring known as Pleinmont, walk around it three times and make a wish. Aside from local lore, Guernsey is charmed as the second largest of the Channel Islands ideally situated in the bay of St. Malo, a mere 30 miles from the coast of France and 80 miles from the coast of England. Speaking of England, while Guernsey is considered part of the British Isles, it is not a part of the United Kingdom, as it constitutionally owes allegiance to the English Crown, but has its own separate legislature.

Oct 07 St. Malo, France Arrive: 9:00 am Depart: 7:45 pm

St. Malo, France

With a history dating back to the first century BCE, Saint Malo, France has a deep and profound past that has stood the test of time.

Famous for its remarkable ocean tides, the view of the difference between high and low tide in St. Malo cannot compare. Just outside the city limits are the captivating Rochers Sculptes, sculpted rocks carved by deaf and mute French artist Adolphe Julien Fouéré, hugging the cliffs of the Emerald Coast. The city’s Brittany heritage runs strong in its local fare and you can indulge in a helping of moules frites - steamed mussels and chips (fries).

That history comes alive at the Magdalena Palace, built between 1908 and 1912 for the Spanish Royal Family.
