The elegance of her exterior and interior lines and her intimate size (only 122 staterooms and suites) make this a rare and innovative yacht on the cruise market.


    Interior Design
    We have been inspired by the destinations we visit and decided to create a subtle variation around a palette of blues. Ranging from the luminous delicate grey-blue of the Polar ice to splashes of the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves, it also includes the blue light of the future pole star.



    Port of call & excursions

    Embarkation 03/05/2018 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 03/05/2018 at 23H00 .

    The Greek capital city is located on the edge of the Saronic gulf, in the east of the country. It bears a plural name in reference to the first villages that surround the Acropolis. You will be enchanted by the rocky plateau presided by its monuments listed as UNESCO World Heritage. In the city below, you can visit some of the liveliest districts in Athens: Plaka, with its maze of colourful streets, and where, in the evenings the drifting aroma of moussaka and garlic prawns will tickle your taste buds. Don’t miss anything of the city’s cultural past. Pay a visit to the National Archaeological museum, or the Cycladic Art Museum.

    4 May 2018 – Crossing the Corinth Canal

    4 May 2018 – Crossing the Corinth Canal

    Arrival 04/05/2018 . Departure 04/05/2018 .

    The Corinth Canal cuts through the Isthmus of Corinth, turning the Peloponnese into an island as it separates the region from the Greek mainland. Inaugurated in 1893, the canal is a little over six kilometres long and enables merchant vessels and passenger to avoid a long 400-km detour around the peninsula. The two sides of the canal reach a height of approximately fifty metres. From the exterior decks, don’t miss this unique opportunity to watch the ship as it navigates along the narrow strip of water encased between tall, ochre cliffs. What an experience !

    4 May 2018 – Corinth

    4 May 2018 – Corinth

    Arrival 04/05/2018 at 12H00 . Departure 04/05/2018 at 18H00 .

    Corinth is located in the north-east of the Peloponnese. You will be majorly impressed by the ancient ruins of this prosperous city dating back to Antiquity. Away from the modern districts, the ruins include streets, colonnades and the foundations of old buildings in a shaded park of cypresses. During a hillside walk, you will see the vines that produce the Corinth grapes, famous since the Middle Ages. The Corinth canal, a channel of water cut between ochre cliffs.

    5 May 2018 – Igoumenitsa

    5 May 2018 – Igoumenitsa

    Arrival 05/05/2018 at 12H00 . Departure 05/05/2018 at 18H30 .

    In the Epirus region, Igoumenitsa is a charming little port town bordered by the Ionian Sea, in north-west Greece. Surrounded by mountains, it faces the island of Corfu. The coastal path offers beautiful views over the “Emerald Island.” Not far from the town are several sites that are worthy of interest, such as the Gitani archaeological site, in a magnificent natural setting surrounded by water, and the Holy Monastery of Giromeri in Filiates. Dating from the 14th century, the Monastery perches like an eagle's nest on mountainous slopes wooded with hundred-year-old sycamores, not far from the border with Albania.

    6 May 2018 – Sailing Bay of Kotor

    6 May 2018 – Sailing Bay of Kotor

    Arrival 06/05/2018 . Departure 06/05/2018 .

    The long walls of the fortified city of Kotor unfurl before your eyes as you admire this medieval construction enclosed between the sea and the rugged cliffs from the decks of your ship. The still, deep waters of the bay plus the clouds of mist floating here and there create a surreal and magical atmosphere. Small islands with churches and fortresses built on them remind us that a proud maritime people has lived here for centuries, in this bay that forms a perfect natural harbour, used by sailors since ancient times. At the crossroads of Latin and Byzantine cultures, you will have the pleasure of observing the natural treasures of Montenegro during an unforgettable journey.

    6 May 2018 – Dubrovnik

    6 May 2018 – Dubrovnik

    Arrival 06/05/2018 at 15H30 . Departure 06/05/2018 at 23H59 .

    Emblem of the Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik is magnificently positioned on a rocky spur. History is sovereign here, in this ancient city, now a listed UNESCO World Heritage site. You will perhaps be surprised by the proportions of La Placa, the central drag through the city. The sheer width of it can be explained by the fact that it straddles a former lagoon. The elegant houses along La Placa are built in the legendary travertine stone. At Pile gate, you will be greeted by the statue of the patron saint of Dubrovnik, and you can admire the coastline as you walk along the ramparts. But what’s inside Fort Saint John, adjoining the outer walls? A maritime museum and an aquarium featuring rare fish from the Adriatic.

    7 May 2018 – Hvar

    7 May 2018 – Hvar

    Arrival 07/05/2018 at 08H00 . Departure 07/05/2018 at 16H00 .

    Off the coast of Split, Hvar will surprise you by its traditions that haven’t changed since Antiquity. The country’s oldest town, Stari Grad, is here on this Dalmatian Island. The town nestles by a cove on the north-west coast, surrounded by dry stone wall structures on the Stari Grad plains. These have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site because they were built in the time of the Ancient Greeks.  From these parcels of land come wines and olive oil manufactured manually. In the upper part of town, you will discover hams and cheeses made by local producers. The picturesque village of Vrisnik is a good place to try some of local produce.

    8 May 2018 – Rab

    8 May 2018 – Rab

    Arrival 08/05/2018 at 08H00 . Departure 08/05/2018 at 16H00 .

    We have no doubt that the authenticity of this little island in Kvarner bay will charm you beyond belief. Dating from Adriatic Antiquity, its name means “wooded lands” in reference to the pinewoods, cypresses and cork oaks surrounding the main town. This town is called Rab, like the island. Here, you will see architecture of Venetian influence, inherited from the Middle Ages, illustrated by the bell-tower. Below, the ramparts provide views embracing the entire coastline. Punctuated by deserted creeks, you will no doubt be tempted to take a trip along the coast.

    9 May 2018 – Venice

    9 May 2018 – Venice

    Arrival 09/05/2018 at 09H00 . Departure 09/05/2018 .

    Proud and eternal, Venice has reigned on its lagoon ever since the 6th century. You may think you know this city before even setting foot here. You will inevitably fall in love with the charm of the innumerable treasures of the Serenissima: Saint Mark’s square, the basilica, Doges palace, the Grand Canal and the gondolas. Yet, secret Venice is also waiting for you to explore its little interlacing streets and canals, to ramble through its squares and to push open the doors of its churches. The city’s extraordinary heritage shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a glass of Spritz and a few tramezzini.

    Maria Callas: a passion, a destiny


    A saga with music by Alain Duault

         The name Maria Callas is universally recognised. Firstly, because Maria Callas devoted her life with such passion to singing and opera. Also because, beyond her influence as an artist, she was a major star who made the news. And finally, because she was guided by a destiny that forged the path not only of an outstanding artist but a unique personality. A legend.

         Alain Duault recounts the story of this legend.

         It is true that Maria Callas had one of those rare voices, yet it was further enhanced by her incredible presence, tragic force and fiery strength of conviction. Above all she had a gift for incarnating roles along with a broad vocal range and registers. To recall those talents today, at least two singers are required to revive the multiple personas she inhabited, for arias and duets she performed with the great singers of her era, when she acted the role as impeccably as she sang it.

         Sylvie Valayre and Fabienne Conrad will be these singers, representing Callas, with the equally fine voices of baritone Christian Helmer and tenor Florian Laconi as their partners – accompanied  by Kira Parfeevets and François Chaplin.

         By the end of the week (during which you will also discover a number of films where we see and hear Callas live), at the end of this story of an exceptional life and destiny, you will understand why Maria Callas is one of humanity’s treasures.

    Fabienne Conrad

    Fabienne Conrad

    With degrees from Science Po and in piano performance, she started out in the role of Violetta in La Traviata performed by the Opéra de Rouen, which is where the French public and the musical press first noticed her. She was quickly chosen to sing the role of the Countess in the Marriage of Figaro, Juliette in Romeo & Juliette and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni. She went on to sing Verdi’s Requiem on a number of occasions.

    Her musical ability and her solid technical skill in the performance of the four heroines of The Tales of Hoffmann opened the way to European stages. She was offered a number of starring roles such as Manon by Massenet, Lucia di Lammermoor, Mireille and Mimi (La Bohème), Cio-Cio-San in Madame Butterfly, Micaëla (Carmen) and Princess Maria in Cinq-Mars by Gounod. Her acting ability won her the role of Eliza, the heroine of My Fair Lady.

    She has performed at the Teatro Real in Madrid, the National Opera in Lithuania, the Leipzig Opera, the opera houses of Massy, Rouen, Lübeck, Saint-Étienne, Tours, Reims, Metz and the Salle Pleyel, under the direction of conductors such as M. W. Chung, J. Lopez Cobos, E. Inbal, L. Acocella, C. Diederich, with directors such as R. Carsen and V. Boussard. She toured Russia, played with the Ensemble Musicaeterna of T. Currentzis, and performed at official European ceremonies and in a very vast oratorio repertory.

    For the coming season, she is notably preparing for the starring role in Norma by Bellini.

    Sylvie Valayre

    Sylvie Valayre

    An all-consuming passion for music and the theatre, singing lessons at the Conservatoire national supérieur de Paris, and one person in particular, Placido Domingo in the starring role in Othello, shook up the career plans of Sylvie Valayre after her doctorate in the sociology of American Cinema.

    The soprano opera singer embarked on a career that would last some thirty years and take her to all the world’s great stages. She performed in “Nabucco” and “Don Carlo” in Covent Garden, “La Gioconda” and “Salomé” at the Theatro alla Scala in Milan, “Macbeth”, “Tosca” and “Il Tabarro” at the Opéra de Paris, “Madama Butterfly”, “Tosca” and “Andrea Chénier” with Placido Domingo at the Metropolitan Opera, “Macbeth”, "Salomé", "Aida", “Die Frau ohne Schatten” and “Turandot” at the Berlin Staatsoper, “Aida”, “Tosca” and “Nabucco” at the Arena of Verona, “Nabucco”, “Tosca”, “Fedora”, “Aida” at the Vienna State Opera, “Nabucco”, “Tosca”, “La Gioconda”, “Macbeth” and “Manon Lescaut” at the Zurich Opera House, “Nabucco” in Moscow, “Salomé”, “Tosca” and “Madama Butterfly” in Tokyo.

    In 2014, Sylvie Valayre recorded La Corona Di Pietra in the Verona Arena with Placido Domingo for the Italian national television company, RAI, and in 2006 she recorded Macbeth with Leo Nucci (Bartoletti/Cavani) for TDK.

    Today, Sylvie Valayre dedicates herself mainly to teaching. For a number of years, she has been invited to give master classes in the various opera houses where she performs (Chicago Lyric Opera, Washington National Opera, New Israeli Opera, San Diego Opera, the workshops for singers of the Opéra de Paris) and regularly participates in the workshops for singers of the l’Opéra national du Rhin.

    She has recently been appointed singing teacher at the famous École normale de musique Alfred Cortot in Paris.
