Sailing the Mediterranean on Royal Clipper

sunny 70 °F

After a good nights sleep and a great breakfast we Ubered over to our meeting point for a three hour electric bike tour of Cannes.

Today is the last day of the Cannes Film Festival and the city was jumping.

The Festival de Cannes is now the world’s most prestigious film gathering, as well as its most widely publicised cultural event. Today a major forum for film-producing countries, its history, selections and prizes are usually thought to date back to 1946 – the year of the first festival proper. However, the first seeds of the event were actually sown eight years earlier.


After lunch in a wonderful cafe, and nap back at the hotel, we headed to Quai du Large to board the tender to get out to the ship. All in all it was a wonderful day.
