Hi,we will be stopping in monaco in july and i had looked up various web sites looking information on trips local transport and nice places to have lunch.I then found a web page regarding tourism in monaco,I emailed them requesting all the information that i required WELL you should see what i received!along with brochures for different places to see i received a cardboard wallet(simular to the ones you get your photos in from getting them developed)full of mini maps and information on transport, where to eat,the cost of entering places of interest including the casino i never realised you had to pay just to see inside the further in you go the dearer it costs! and when i asked where the best place to have a light lunch,somewhere the locals would eat i was told in monaco-ville the old part of town.I am now doing this for all the other ports of call we are doing were we will explore on our own.hope this helps.

Very easy when you get off the tender turn right walk along beach front for about 5mins. & on your left you will see a sign for the railway, then you cross railway line to get train to Monaco, we didn't have timetable but we were not waiting very long. enjo.

When you get to Cannes you will be tendered ashore. The railway station is about half a mile behind the promenade and there are regular trains to Monaco, as well as to Nice, Villefranche, Menton etc. The cost is a few euros and it takes about 20 minutes. At Monaco again the railway station is about half a mile or so from the harbour, where there is a lift upto the casino area - so easily doable in a day - but do allow plenty of time to get back!! In Lisbon you can walk around town yourself as the ships usually dock within walking distance and there are plenty of buses and even some trams to take you around.

We were in Lisbon a few years ago and there were buses that you could hop on and off, with commentaries in various languages inc English. I think we got on at the main square where the cruise shuttle dropped us off.

One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
