72and14yrs's Tips

Piraeus (Athens), Greece - princess excursion to Acropolis disappointing as very little time at site and no time to go into the museum which houses everything of importance.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - did not go as temperature expected to be above 100 degrees. port shops same as Istanbul, better shopping in Istanbul.
Mykonos, Greece - walked to beautiful beach from ship and enjoyed refreshing swim and then ice cream at cafe.
Istanbul, Turkey - been to city before so did sights on own. Hagia Sophia a must, expect crowds and lines. most venders take u.s. but museum only takes turkish money.
Naples, Italy - pompeii on own, bus to train station and 40 min. ride to site. needs water and sun screen. not to be missed.
Barcelona, Spain - day we arrived there was a taxi strike so we did not leave ship. new passengers should have been able to board ship and wait in a waiting zone instead of having to wait in terminal waiting zone. this created long lines and short tempers.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - busy day, purchased shuttle service and went on own. beautiful cities but like the rest of Europe extremely crowded in the summer.
Toulon, France - we took city bus int.o the town and nothing to do there. took bus back to ship and had relaxing day
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - uses online excursion operator 1/2 price of princess and had local guides and it was great and as expected extremely crowded.
Regal Princess Regal Princess - expect long lines and crowds in the horizon court.
