Setting sail from Istanbul

This is one of those destinations that really does live up to the hype! Istanbul is the place where East meets West, where Asia Minor reaches out across the Bosphorus and almost touches Europe. In its earlier incarnation as Constantinople, the city was the eastern bastion of the Byzantine Empire, holding out for centuries before finally capitulating to the Ottomans in 1453, and it remains a bristling, bustling cultural melting pot, the skyline dotted with magnificent minarets and domes.

Our tip

Try and go for an authentic Turkish experience with a bath in a hamam. Discuss your options with the receptionist. Cagaloglu Hamami is the most spectacular.

Arriving in Monte Carlo

Renowned for its casino, its Grand Prix and its oligarch-friendly tax policies, Monte Carlo is glamour and hedonism personified, with a price tag to match. Wedged between Italy and France on the Côte d'Azur, this little principality enjoys a lovely setting, the villas and penthouses tumbling down the hillside towards the sweeping blue expanse of the Mediterranean. Most visitors won't feel the need (or be able to afford) to stay more than a day or two, but the Prince's Palace and the Oceanographic Museum are both well worth a visit. Enter the casino at your own risk...

Don't miss

Make sure you’re outside the Prince’s Palace by 11.55 am sharp for the daily Changing of the Guard ceremony; it’s a wonderful spectacle that always draws a crowd.

The Ship

Your home from home

Crystal Serenity
Crystal Serenity - Crystal Penthouse
Crystal Serenity - Pool

Crystal have repeatedly been voted the World’s Best and Serenity is arguably one of the finest ships at sea.

What we love

Crystal Serenity is Symphony's big sister and, like her, is not a new ship; but you wouldn't know it since she is subject to an ongoing refurbishment programme, which ensures that the environment is always perfect and the style contemporary. This is, in short, a ship constantly honed to perfection. But ultimately it's all about the unmatchable food and service.

Ways to make it better
Four Seasons Sultanahmet, Istanbul

Our recommended hotel in Istanbul

We love the intimate Four Seasons at Sultanahmet, but – top Mundy tip! - it is so small that it’s often fully booked, so don’t hang about.

Hot air balloons over Cappadocia, Turkey

See more of Turkey

Take a few extra days and travel to Cappadocia for the extraordinary Star Wars scenery, rock caves and churches.

Hotel Monte-Carlo Bay, Monaco

Where to stay in Monte Carlo

We prefer the Monte-Carlo Bay to the city hotels, lovely sea views and next to the beach.

Driving a Ferrari in Monte Carlo

See Monte Carlo in style

If you like luxury or performance cars, rent one - a Ferrari or a Lamborghini - and drive along the Corniche.
