ENJOY the unique opportunity of a personal chat with famed Australian author Fiona McIntosh in the Mediterranean this October aboard the world’s most highly-rated boutique motor-cruiser, SeaDream I from Rome to Cannes.
Learn first-hand what inspired each of her 30-plus novels, plus a half-dozen children’s books written to date, find out what she’s in mind for the future – and try to discover if there’s anything she’s seen, or intriguingly anyone she’s met aboard SeaDream, will become key to a novel down the line…
Although “officially on holiday” with prominent travel-writer husband Ian McIntosh, Fiona says she’d love to meet and chat with fellow Aussies or New Zealanders aboard during her sailing – which will include Sorrento and the opportunity of an optional visit to Pompeii, the Isle of Capri, Bonifacio on Corsica for an overnight stay, Calvi also on Corsica, the French Riviera’s famed St Tropez, and finally Cannes.
The boutique SeaDream I’s just-56 staterooms all have ocean views, and with 95 crew it’s an almost 1-on-1 crew-to-guest ratio. Included in the price are premium drinks from the open bars, wines with lunch and dinner, power and sail water-sports where locally permitted, a 30 international course golf simulator, fitness centre, mountain bikes for shore excursions, onboard gratuities, and government charges and taxes.
The 7-day sailing from Rome’s port of Civitavecchia to Cannes on October 22 this year is priced from US$4926pp twin-share.
