We begin our holiday in colourful Barcelona before boarding the stunning Azamara Pursuit. We embark on a luxury seven-night cruise along the famed southern coast of France. We’ll explore charming Port-Vendres, the medieval fortress town of Carcassonne, the historical streets of Marseille, and Provence – the ‘City of a Thousand Fountains’.

When we are sailing you are free to enjoy all of the onboard facilities the Azamara Pursuit has to offer. You have $50 onboard credit included, so you can treat yourself to a drink in the Discoveries Bar, enjoy a massage in the Sanctum Spa, or try one of the speciality restaurants. Make sure you pack a white outfit for the White Party, being as casual or formal as you wish, but make sure you are comfortable enough to dance!

We’ll also discover the glamorous Cote d’Azure with its picturesque coastal villages like Sanary-sur-Mer and the famed city of Saint-Tropez, before cruising to the island of Corsica. Here, you’ll find Calvi – a lively port town in a picturesque bay with mountain views all around. Continuing along the Mediterranean Sea we reach Monte Carlo in Monaco – playground of the rich and famous, and La Turbie, perched high in the hills above the sea. After bidding farewell to the Azamara Pursuit, we disembark in beautiful Nice.

Before concluding our holiday here, we’ll call at Antibes – an ancient seafaring town which attracted many artists and writers such as Picasso and Graham Greene, and we’ll also visit Fragonard, one of the oldest perfumeries in Grasse, perfume capital of the world, before returning to Nice.
