Is Saint-Raphael Turning into a Foodies' Town?
Smart Fennel of the French Riviera

Thomson Dreams Big on the French Riviera

Thomson Dream in Saint-Raphael on the French Riviera
The amazing Thomson Dream cruise ship reached the bay of Saint-Raphael on the French Riviera this morning.

It anchored in the bay as part of its "Highlights Of The Mediterranean" itinerary with Ajaccio, Civitavecchia for Rome, Livorno for Florence and Pisa, Saint-Raphael for St Tropez and Cannes, Barcelona all included as ports of call. 

The Thomson Dream vessel includes 8 bars, 6 restaurants,  3 lounges, 2 whirlpools, 2 swimming pools, 1 Nightclub, 1 Casino and a partridge in a pear tree.

We did like Thomson's description of Saint-Raphael, pulled directly from their website:

"St Raphael is the girl next door of southern France. Compared to its flashy cousins down the coast, it’s more of a shy and retiring kind of place. The town sits on the edge of 36 kilometres of unspoilt coastline, and it’s overlooked by acres of natural forest and the terracotta-coloured peaks of the Esterel Mountain range..."

Welcome to all Thomson Dreamers, from the girl next door.

Thomson Dream is planning to visit Saint-Raphael again on August 13th this year. We're also expecting MS Queen Elizabeth on August 1st, and Zuiderdam on August 10th and 16th.

Very exciting visits for a shy and retiring girl!
