Setting sail from Bridgetown

The tiny eastern Caribbean island of Barbados has long been a favourite for British holiday makers, thanks in no small part to the platinum sands and warm, crystal clear waters of the west coast. But there's more to Barbados than just beaches; the delightful colonial architecture of the old garrison in Bridgetown, the capital, is fully deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage status, and the island interior is littered with old sugar plantations and natural wonders such as Harrison's Cave. Perhaps the island's biggest asset, however, is the Bajans themselves, who are some of the friendliest people you're ever likely to meet.

Don't miss

Barbados is packed with historic houses, signal stations and sugar mills – one of our favourites is Sunbury Plantation House.

Arriving in Cannes

Few ports conjure up images of glitz and movie star glamour quite so readily as Cannes. Even if you find yourself unmoved by the ostentatious displays of wealth on show along the Croisette, where multi-million dollar yachts bob in the azure waters, you'll still find this stretch of the Côte d'Azur to be rich in natural beauty. May is when the glitterati roll into town for the Film Festival, but there's still plenty to divert you the rest of the year; Le Suquet, the old quarter, merits exploration, and the tranquil Îles de Lérins, just off the coast of Cannes, make for a relaxing day trip.

Our tip

Cannes is a great base to explore the Riviera and the back country. Travelling by rail is a good option and there are reduced fares for over 60s.

The Ship

Your home from home

Royal Clipper at sea
Royal Clipper cabin
Royal Clipper watersports

The world’s largest sailing ship Royal Clipper is the only five-mast full-rigged sailing ship in the world with 42 sails creating a combined area of 56,000 square feet.

What we love

Royal Clipper certainly stands out from the crowd. In full sail she is an awe-inspiring sight, reminiscent of a bygone age, yet she combines this beauty with comfort and balances grandeur, adventure and tradition for guests who wish to experience a tall ship cruise. Climb the mast or relax by the pool, you can be as involved as you wish on this easy-going and friendly ship.
