The boat docked about 15 miles from Monaco so to get to Monaco, we took this cool train.
We got there alright but heading back to the boat, we had a little trouble finding which train to take.
And we didn't know the schedule the trains run but we found one to get us back to the ship on time before it sailed. And we made it back just barely.

For me, one of the highlights of the cruise was going in the hot tub when we got back to the ship. And WOW.....what a hot tub. We would stay in there, drink some wine that we smuggled aboard and watch the ship leave the port and sail off to our next destination.
Not as good as a natural hot springs, but it was a close second

For me, THE HIGHLIGHT of the cruise was dinner each night.
No one could believe how much I could put away each night.
I would order 3 shrimp cocktails, and escargo every night.
Plus soup and salad, other starters and two main courses. And I still left room for desert.

We always had wine every night.
Sometimes we would order from the ship. Other times we would bring in one of our own wines.
Here's a pic of Kathe enjoying a nice glass

Sometimes we had a bit too much wine and things got a bit out of control

She is going to kill me for posting this one but it is too funny not to.
After getting up early, spending the whole day walking around in the hot sun, who could really blame her..........

The next day, we took the train to Cinque Terre Italy.
It is a series of little villages along the coast of Southern Italy

The next day we went to Rome. Again the ship docked somewhere about 50 miles from Rome, but we caught a train and used the subway to make our way in to the heart of Rome and the Roman Empire

Great photos!

I just opened this RR and it's looking like I'll have some real fun reading this one. Thanks for an awesome looking report.
