Cruise blogs and cruise articles. Monte Carlo, Monaco cruise reviews


A cruise vacation is good because you have time to see several countries or cities for the relatively short period of time. On the one hand, it is good. This is reminiscent of a familiarization tour, when you can get a general comprehension about a particular place and therefore to conclude...
Now I'd like to tell you about gala evening, which  Azamara arranges for its guests on each cruise, and is included in the price of the cruise. We really enjoyed it. We had an evening out at the Oceanographic Museum in  Monaco . The event was brilliantly organized because...
Having a certain experience of the stay on the Côte d'Azur, I want to share a list of things that you certainly must do, when you come there. 1.

Our first stop of this cruise was  Monaco . It's hard to tell something new or simply interesting about such a popular place, I also do not want to repeat guide books (everyone has them), so I'll just tell you about the places we visited on our walk... We left the ship. And the...
Monaco  was the next stop of our cruise. Our Noordam of Holland America Line moored in the port of Monaco near the pier (while Princess Cruises was in the roads - you can see her in the next picture) - and occupied almost the entire state. Monaco is only 1.2...

The  Oceanographic Museum  has a whole room dedicated to sharks.  Sharks swim on the screen. If you stand on the red square, the information about the shark appears. Most people die from mosquitoes, not from sharks! A huge skeleton of the shark hangs above the room....

After I visited the royal automobile museum of the King of Jordan, everybody advised me to visit the same museum of the Prince of Monaco. By a happy coincidence, I did it last week. The museum is really big and has an impressive collection of old and sports cars. Till 2012 it was even bigger but...
