Luxury Yachts: The late Greek shipping tycoon Arisotle Onassis’ 325-ft. Christina O is one of the world’s most legendary and luxurious yachts, having played host to the likes of Jackie Kennedy (later Onassis), Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Greta Garbo, Grace Kelly and Eva Peron. John F. Kennedy first met Winston Churchill on board in 1957, and more recently Sean “Diddy” Combs chartered the craft; and it was also the setting for of the most glamorous, chronicled and ill-fated romances of the 20th century, between Onassis and the world’s most famous opera diva, Maria Callas.
The Christina O’s owners are now offering a special Maria Callas Experience charter this spring and summer, an exclusive opportunity to be transported into the jetset era of the 1950's and 1960's. It features a memorable voyage along the Cote d’Azur from Monte Carlo to Cannes, luxurious appointments, exquisite personal service from the attentive crew, superb dining, fine wines, and a bespoke recital of operatic classics with a storyline of the life of Maria Callas by some of Europe's renowned Bel Canto Sopranos. Prices start at about $2,500 per person based on double occupancy.
