About Casablanca, Morocco

The economic capital of Morocco and the second largest city in Africa, Casablanca is an exotic blend of African, Arabian and European cultures. White-washed houses and peaceful mosques line the narrow streets of ancient Medina, the original Arab Section. Nearby, souks hum with the activity of contented shoppers bargaining for fine leather and handicrafts. The Ain Daib quarter in the southern part of the city boasts a strand of oceanfront resorts and restaurants set along the beach. Visit the mysterious "pink" city of Marrakech with its famed market and snake-charmers.

Getting off the ship onto a smelly, industrial port, your feet sink into layers of compressed oil and diesel. I would not recommend trying to walk off ship. You have to take a shuttle or excursion because it's too far and dangerous to walk - through an industrial area with no safeguards for pedestrians and a massive military area.

We did the Imperial Rabat excursion. The guide was good but one stop at the carpet store was very disappointing. It was a chance to buy something but it was all very expensive and no one was interested. The vendor came down 200% from initial offer before I even made an offer. It was crazy. We spent more time at the shop negotiating a non purchase than at the mosque that Casablanca is famous for.

I thought this was a very interesting port but the povery level, lack of cleanliness, and no public bathrooms made us uneasy. This port had a lot of culture but if you are looking for the "movie" feel...watch the DVD instead!
