We went under our own steam and visited the old part with the beautiful little port with colorful boats in them and the sea so clear you can see directly to the bottom. Where I got a bit squiffy on ouzo and lemonade! Well it was lunchtime! Will be going back again for sure.

When docked in Souda, we took the “IQ10 Real Crete” which drove around the island to some high spots with great views of the water. It ended in Chania with over an hour of free time. We’re not shoppers so we were a little concerned about killing time, but the harbor area and markets were very nice and we then wished we’d had more time.

Shore excursion was helpful in understanding this area, and monastery was interesting too. Again, a very helpful, clear, & Well-informed guide. The marketplace we got to visit at the end was helpful for last chance shopping in Greece. Shore excursion preview should use the proper pronunciation of Chania, which is "Hahn-YA"

We were greeted by Greek music and dancers, then a grand display of foods from the region for us to sample. We took a shuttle for 3 Euro per person into the market which was incredible. More dancers and they gave us a bottle of Raci, a local liquer. We ate lunch in the market where the fish was prepared and served after being supplied by the monger in the next stall. The owner of the restaurant was very friendly and gave us a plate of snails because we were unsure of them. Great experience. When we returned, they supplied us with gift bags with a DVD of Crete and some additional product samples.

Palace of Knossos was interesting, but after seeing Ephesus and Athens, these ruins were not as spectacular. Tour took too long for my taste, too much explanation, especially in the heat. Would have liked time to look in the museum shop, but we were rushed (again). Often these tours offered by the ship include a shopping stop (of their choice), which cuts into the time I wanted for what I wanted to do.
