Bordeaux wine tastings, cruising in luxury along the French Riviera – and never setting foot inside an airport. If that sounds like your dream way to travel this summer, then you need to know about the new vineyard and rail package which has just been launched by Star Clippers

Available on the premium sailing specialist’s 2022 French Riviera & Corsica sailings, guests will travel from London by Eurostar, before experiencing a 2-night pre-cruise stay in Bordeaux – including a wine tour in Médoc vineyards – followed by a night in Cannes, prior to boarding the 166-capacity tall-ship for 7 nights.

“We are thrilled to offer guests the opportunity to experience a Star Clippers sailing without having to step foot on a plane”

Fay McCormack, Star Clippers General Manager

Once aboard, highlights of the sailing itinerary include St Tropez, Corsica and Portofino, while on the ship, guests will experience first class accommodation and dining more akin to a private yacht than a mega cruise liner. Think swimming pools surrounded by expansive teak sun decks, an elegant yet informal dining room, a fun Tropical Bar on deck and a comfortable piano bar to unwind in, too.
