Cruises to Monte Carlo/Monaco

I am researching to book a Meditteranean Cruise and want to make sure we visit Monte Carlo as one of the Ports of Call. I have been told that no cruise ships actually go to Monte Carlo, that they all have to go to Villefrance and then you take a coach to MC. Is this correct? Or are there some smaller cruise ships that actually port in MC?

Don't know where you're getting your information, but cruise ships have been docking in Monte Carlo for several years. You can download the schedule here:

If you do dock in Villefranche and want to go to Monaco independently, the trains take 15 minutes, and they are typically every 30 minutes.

As perilizia says, the boat will dock at Villefranche, and you will tenter in, from there you can go to Nice, Monte Carlo, or any of those places close by. We took one of those self guilded tours from the ship. We had 3 hours in Nice and 3 in Monaco, it was well worth it. Have fun
