    I'm traveling to several countries in June 2012 and one of my planned stops will be in Monaco.
    Has anyone been to the casinos there? If so what were your experiences? Your likes, your dislikes?

    sorry, when i was there the prince just did not want to mingle, so we just hung in the palace.

    we whisked down in the limo to the yacht, and then watched the boat races from the harbor. from what we could see the crowds were just too much in front of the casinos. it was also a french holiday, so just better to stay away, if you know what i mean.

    seriously, have fun, i hope you find some help from soneone on this board, but it is not me.

    Yeah, I went once when I was there about 10 years ago. Be prepared for very expensive prices. 10 years ago a Hamburger and a coke from the cafe just outside the casino was like $60.

    It is neat to see, but not like American casinos you are used to.

    Don't know if it has changed in the last 10 years, but they only open in the evening, they are not a 24/7 casino, and the dress code was strictly enforced. Have to dress nice, cannot go in from the beach in your shorts and flip flops.

    Overall, if you are there, it is still an interesting way to spend the evening. Lots of bacc, roulette, slots, all Euro priced of course.

    Have fun!

    When I was in the casino there like 15 years ago, there was a little salon with some machines in it that you could wander in and play.

    They charged an entrance fee to the main casino where the table games were and where James Bond was holding court.

    One odd thing, instead of cocktail waitresses, they had some guy come around with petit-fours.

    Ya, when I'm playing some stupid slot that I don't understand, I really have a craving for fancy pastries with icing on them.
