Skagway, Alaska - White Pass train ride was enjoyable
Juneau, Alaska - Mendenhall Glacier and whale watching after float plane trip canceled turned out to be a good choice
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska - Zip line was a rush!
Santorini, Greece - Trip to top is an adventure in itself, especially if you take the donkeys.
Corfu, Greece - Enjoyed walk into city. Nothing that stood out.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - We ttook the day tour to Florence, where museums were closed (it was Monday), but still had a nice walk through city and San Marco cathedral; the trip to Pisa allowed only 20 minutes to visit tower and adjacent church, which was insufficient time; tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable, however.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Efasus was one of best archaelogical sites on entire cruise. Bazaar at port was disappointing, due to overly aggressive shop owners who refused to allow you to enjoy the market and various wares.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Best tour of cruise; saw all major site, with ample time at Acropolis, very nice Greek dinner, and time in Plaka for shopping and wandering, with trip to National Museum following.
Venice, Italy - Venice lives up to its billing in terms of beauty; outrageously expensive, but was a lot of fun
Naples, Italy - Tour to Pompeii was fabulous. We heard from guests that tour to Capri was worthwhile.
Mykonos, Greece - Nice walk around town and to Little Venice; enjoyed the island; planned to take ferry to Delos for archaelogical tour, but missed it;
Monte Carlo, Monaco - The walk to top of hill to Maritime Museum was worthwhile, as was the "Tonka Toy" train ride, which gave quick, overall tour of city, Casino, hotels, parks and downtown sites.
