Speaking of suspension of disbelief, welcome to the Principality of Monaco and its port at Monte Carlo.
To guests who are leaving us here, arrivederci. Until we meet again somewhere else afloat.
And welcome aboard to those joining us here, on a jaunt through some of the prettiest parts of a lovely part of the world.
MONTE CARLO TODAY
We head out tomorrow to Saint-Tropez, one of the playgrounds of the Côte d’Azur, a small place famous for being outsizedly famous. From there to the much larger second city of France, Marseille.
Our last call in France on this cruise is at the intriguing canalized city of Sète in Languedoc.
From there we head due south into the Mediterranean for a call at Alcudia on the Spanish island of Mallorca; it is an ancient less-visited alternative to the big city of Palma on the same island.
Back to the mainland, we are due to call at Castellón de la Plana which sits between the spectacular cities of Valencia to its south and Barcelona to the north. It has its own appeal, and a co-claim to the origins of paella as well.
This cruise will finish in Barcelona, which is always worthy of a return visit.
