Extremely scarce accommodation for next May's Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix is part of a unique package from CruiseMart that includes a 12-night Holland America Mediterranean cruise, a week's use of a rental car, the opportunity to visit the Grand Prix pit lane, Grandstand seating for the race, and a sightseeing tour of picturesque Cannes, Antibes and St Paul de Vence.

Guests depart Australia on May 6 2009 for Venice, have a night aboard the 5-star Oosterdam for the opportunity to sightsee the city, then sail for Split in Croatia, Piraeus for Athens, Istanbul for an overnight stay, Mykonos, Kusadasi for Ephesus, Santorini, Katakolon for Olympia, and back to Venice.

They then collect a rental car for an approximate 3-hour drive to Milan for a night in a hotel there, and drive 3-hours the next day to Nice for a 5-night stay  including rail travel daily to the 4-days of the Grand Prix in Monaco, and on May 25 drive approximately 3-hours to Milan for the flight back to Australia.

The package is priced from $9890pp twin-share from mainland capitals and Cairns including air taxes, 12-nights on Oosterdam, 7-days hire of an Alfa 147 or similar, six nights hotels, 4-days return train transfers Nice to Monaco for the Grand Prix including 3-days Grandstand seating and a handheld Kangaroo TV with full live race coverage, and the half-day Cannes area tour.
