The duo and their partners plus friends were on vacation on the 241ft superyacht Siren travelling to St Tropez and Corsica in France and Capri and Portofino in Italy, where Jackson hoped to do ‘nothing’ according to his instagram photos (he avoided the gym in the luxury yacht they were staying on). There was still some sport on the menu however with golf in Golfe de Saint-Tropez before they travelled to Italy. The two families and friends then went ashore to Forte Di Marmi for gelato and shopping, visiting Pucci and Louis Vuitton.
