Oosterdam

July 2016 - Oosterdam to Europe - Mediterranean

Great Itinerary if you love Ancient Greece and Rome

The Itinerary was changed because of the trouble in Turkey.  Split was also cancelled and we went to Kotor Montenegro and Sarande, Albania. 

 

Had a good time but I am glad I did my own research before we left as the cruise ship does not give out much information on the ports.

 

Kotor is nice for the beautiful bay.  Sarande is under construction and there is lots of trash.  Don't bother to leave the beach area.  On the other hand, eat and drink.  Prices are from the 1970s!  They take Euros too.

ruffinimichael's Tips

Nafplion (Nauplion), Greece - The fort overlooking the town is good only for the views. It is a hard walk and was very hot, The port area is nice with shops and cafes. Some of the best prices in Greece.
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Easy to walk to old town. Follow shore until the harbor ends, then walk uphill along the street of banks. At top, you'll see signs to old town. There is a stairway that takes you down to the gate. Town is fun.
Mykonos, Greece - Just consider this an at sea day and stay on the ship. Nothing worth seeing in town. Prices high.
Santorini, Greece - Must see! Best views of the islands and the sea and the towns are really nice. Prices high but worth it.
Oosterdam Oosterdam - Do your own research on what to see in the ports. Of three excursions we took given by the ship, only one had radios so we could hear the guide. Best was OIA, Santorini. Highly recommend it.
