Brand g Vacations is proud to offer a Western Mediterranean cruise unlike any you’ll find on another cruise ship. We have chartered the Royal Clipper, the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship. With a complement of 42 sails, the Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. Experience the informal elegance, culinary delights, and gracious service in the intimacy of 227 gay and lesbian friends.
This cruise departs from Cannes, a perfect vacation destination due to its ideal weather conditions and glamorous harbor. Some of the most notable highlights include: beautiful Lerici, the ancient Etruscan remains at Portoferraio, the beaches of Corsica and the super-yachts of glamorous Monaco.
