31 October

Setting sail from Marseille

The rumbustious port of Marseille often gets a bad press, but the city has been transformed in recent years, with a host of new cultural attractions. The vibrant Vieux Port remains at the heart of life in Marseille, however, and is the best place to begin your exploration of the city's many historic sights.

Arriving in Praia

Praia is the capital of Cape Verde, set on the south coast of the verdant and volcanic Santiago island. This is the largest island in the archipelago, and almost half of Cape Verde's population lives here. In the city itself you'll find a scattering of attractive Portuguese colonial architecture around the Praca Alexandre Albuquerque, while the lively fruit and vegetable market on Avenida 5 de Julio will give you a taste of local life at street level. The UNESCO-listed former capital, Cidade Velha, is only a 10-mile drive from Praia, and well worth a visit if you've got time.

What we love

Ponant's most intimate ship came into service over 20 years ago but is still much loved today. Ultra sleek in its design the modern staterooms all have port hole windows but the delight of this vessel is the al fresco nature of the public spaces with a large sundeck, outdoor restaurant and swimming marina so you you'll always feel connected to the sea.
