Paul W. & Kim's Dream Vacation – A Mediterranean Dream

Who’s ready for a vacation!? Travel is such an important part of our lives and Kim and I have truly missed spending time with so many like-minded WJR listeners, enjoying cocktails together, sharing laughs and truly getting to know one another. That is why it is FINALLY time to announce our 6th Dream Vacation and boy oh boy, get ready to be wowed!

Paul W. & Kim’s DREAM VACATION #6
A Mediterranean Dream
Aboard the Award Winning Regent – Seven Seas Explorer
July 12-23, 2022

Kim and I would like to personally invite you and a small group of other WJR listeners to join us on the trip of a lifetime as we sail the blue waters of the Amalfi Coast, French Riviera, Spain and more. On July 13th, we’ll set sail from Rome (Civitavecchia), to Sorrento, Italy where you can visit the world famous island of Capri. We’ll make stops in Sicily and Malta before taking in the spectacular French Riviera. Saint-Tropez, Monte Carlo, Provence, Corsica. Need I go on? Palamos, Spain rounds out this dream itinerary before arriving in Barcelona, Spain where you can extend your stay to see the Sagrada Familia, if you’d like.

But this incredible itinerary is only half of the story. We’re traveling in pure luxury aboard the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, where everyone gets a suite. And get this, business class international airfare is included in the price of this Dream Vacation along with just about everything else you could ever want. Gourmet meals at specialty restaurants, shore excursions, premium wines and spirits, gratuities, WiFi, valet laundry service… this stuff would typically cost you thousands and it’s all included!

Hurry, suites on this 750-passenger ship are limited and are already filling fast. Let’s take a Dream Vacation together.

Sorrento/Capri, Italy
Sorrento is surely one of the world’s most beautiful towns, built on a coast with breathtaking views and landscapes. Overlooking the bay of Naples, the town is the key point on the Sorrentine Peninsula and is one of the most popular destinations of the entire Campania region. Make sure to plan a day trip to Capri, one of the most celebrated Italian islands, noted for its natural beauty.

Friday, July 15, 2022

Taormina (Sicily), Italy
Naxos is the gateway to the island of Sicily’s strategically significant northeastern region. From this port city, it is a short transfer to Taormina, resting 820 feet above the sea and overlooking imposing Mount Etna. Its highlights include the remarkably preserved Roman-style Greek theater, the splendid Palazzo Corvaja and the Odeon, a small Imperial Age theater set amidst colorful public gardens.

Saturday, July 16, 2022

Valletta, Malta
Malta’s major port and capital, the entire city of Valletta was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. The centerpiece is the impressive 19th-century Mosta Dome, visible from anywhere on the island. In addition to a number of significant works of art, this town is known for its many fortifications built by the Knights of Malta, including Saint John’s Co-Cathedral.

Relax and enjoy our stunning ship as we cruise the Tyrrhenian Sea

Monday, July 18, 2022

Ajaccio (Corsica), France
Ajaccio is located on the west coast of Corsica, and is the island’s largest town. Ajaccio is the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte, and the Napoleonic legacy dominates the city in its statues and street names. Surrounded by green-hued mountains with shady palm-fringed squares and pleasure boats bobbing in the bay, Ajaccio offers guests a pleasing number of sites to explore. View the Musée Fesch, with its fine collection of Renaissance paintings, and Napoleon’s birthplace, the Casa Bonaparte, now a museum.

Tuesday, July 19, 2022

Saint-Tropez, France
Enjoy the exquisite hilly Provençal countryside beyond this resort, where charming villages with narrow stepped streets, lovely churches and stunning scenic views beckon. Visit a local winery or take a drive along the rugged coast and revel in the wonderful views of the landscape, the beaches, the islands and the magnificent Massif des Maures. Browse the elegant boutiques for French perfume, fine jewelry, high fashion clothing and leather goods.

Wednesday, July 20, 2022

Monte Carlo, Monaco
Tiny, but packed with fun, Monte Carlo offers a wonderful combination of history, beauty, entertainment and leisure. The wealthiest spot in Monaco, Monte Carlo is an enchanting place, known as the international capital of luxury and for its celebrity sightings, casinos and nightlife. Yet the old world shines through in its art and architecture. Palaces, cathedrals and museums dot this small municipality in an old town full of rich history. Be sure to catch the once-daily changing of the guard.

Thursday, July 21, 2022

Provence (Marseille), France
Located in southeastern France, today’s Marseille is a far cry from the sleepy villages it once inspired in Cézanne’s paintings. With more than a million people, the city remains the cosmopolitan and exuberant capital of southern Europe, with its picturesque Old Quarter, lively sidewalk cafes and shops, and Romanesque-Byzantine Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica, overlooking the steep cliffs and offering a bird’s eye view of the city’s colorful “quartiers” stretching down toward the sea.

Friday, July 22, 2022

Palamos, Spain
Experience Costa Brava and understand why Salvador Dalí and others have long been inspired by its beaches and coves. Spend a day in the warm sand of La Fosca or learning about the history of this fishing village in Museu de la Pesca or simply taking in the Mediterranean air while walking down the promenade.

Saturday, July 23, 2022

Barcelona, Spain
Our journey comes to an end in Barcelona, where we’ll disembark and fly home. Add a post-cruise stay to explore this vibrant city, including the iconic Sagrada Familia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site still being built since 1882.

The trip was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. One of the best vacations that we've ever taken. Every detail was taken care of which made for a very relaxing and stress-free trip. The staff on the River Countess was excellent and Peggy and Dennis were very gracious hosts.
- Jon and Laura Sudo
I was truly impressed with the top notch service, organization and leadership of Cruise & Tour. Our guide Charlie Crull was always available to help and guide us. Not only did he do a great job, but he was fun and it was nice to get to know him along with others we met.
