Highlight of the trip - walked up and back on the donkey track! Top marks to P & O literature for recommending not using the donkeys for welfare reasons, it was apparent that very few English used them, mainly American and Japanese.

From tender pier take the local tour boat to Oia for blue domes as seen on travel posters, then bus to Thira (included). Walk down with the donkeys to tenders, ride a donkey, or wait in a long line for cable car.

Plan to spend the day wandering the streets, enjoying lunch on a restaurant patio overlooking the beautiful scenery, and shopping. Loved Santorini!

Our favorite stop for this cruise. Santorini is the typical Greece that you see in movies or TV. The white buildings and churches with the blue dome roof. The ship docks at sea and you have to take a tender to get to shore. We took the ship's excursion to visit the Village of Oia and wished we had more time. Beautiful views driving up the mountain and we saw donkeys crossing the street. Lots of cute shops and places to eat. We enjoyed brunch and then walked the cute little streets of shops. Our bus took us to Thira which is located at the top mountain/cliff. Breathtaking views, deep blue water with more restaurants, shops galore, pedicures (with little fishes in the water). The tour included a ride down from Thira to the sea level on a gondola which they call a "cable car" takes you from the top down to sea level. The ride down takes about 5 minutes but the line waiting for the ride down can get very long in the afternoon. The ship recommends you do not take the donkey's o...

Beautiful white and blue place - just as advertised... the only mistake we made was going down on foot (we took a cable car up) - it takes about an hour and a half to get down as you have to watch every little step you take (due to donkey poo), not to mention dodging donkeys on way up or down, as they really don't care where they are going. My daughter almost got ran over! It's also very sad watching exhausted donkeys going up and down in that heat (and we didn't see one bucket of water available to them for the whole journey down!!!) - if you can avoid it, do. It's not for the emotional crowd :'(
