Monfalcone Italy

We had a nice cruise to Monfalcone . Left at 10.00 hr arrived at 17.15.

First thing we saw from way back was a large cruise ship. As we got closer we realized it was a new ship being build for Princess Cruises, the "majestic Princess" She was only started last year ( June 2015) And it is scheduled to be ready to cruise sometime next year (2017) We were amazed how much was achieved in less than a year. The interesting part is that the "Eurodam" we saw in Venice was build by the same shipyard.
It is obvious that Italy, and particularly Monfalcone has a major ship building industry.

 May 20 and we have the boat ready to be moved along side whenever the transport vessel arrives. So we went for a drive and ended up in Slovinia. It is not far from Monfalcone so we had a nice view of the Slovanian country side.
