T+L Reports: Easy Does It at Sea
Published: June 2009
This spring, the 170-passenger EasyCruiseOne (www.easycruise.com) will ferry hard-partying twenty- to fortysomethings between St.-Tropez and Portofino, making daily stops in Cannes, Monaco, and other storied Riviera ports. The latest from Stelios, the Greek entrepreneur behind the no-frills European airline EasyJet, has hard-edged, minimalist cabins awash in life-vest orange. There's no pool and no formal restaurant, though burgers and steaks are served at an "American-style sports bar." And it's quite the deal: EasyCruise guests embark and disembark wherever they wish, and pay as little as $57 per night (mozza sticks and tequila shooters not included).
