Exciting days in Nice and Monaco

12 October 2022

Our eight spectacular days in Nice and Monaco, that included an amazing interest from the people in Nice (thank you!), great media coverage and the delivery of a life-sized elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco. A very unusual sight on sundeck to highlight the important issue of ghost nets and the health of our oceans.

Götheborg will change its route to deliver an elephant to the Prince of Monaco

30 September 2022

Instead of heading straight from Nice to Valletta as planned, the route has been changed and the ship is now also making a short stopover in Monaco. However, it is not just a regular stopover: It will include the spectacular delivery of a 2.4-meter-high elephant sculpture to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.

A short visit to Monaco
