Ephesus was the highlight of the cruise.  Recommend booking independent tour.  Santorini was a disappointment due to the tendering process and the limited time available to tour the island.  would book the tour with the cruise ship to maximize your time on santorini.  They tendered out first.  Rest of the cruise was great.

loved the room.

Ship Tip

Best to book the santorini shore excursion through the boat. They got to tender off first. Otherwise, not much time on the island. Early dinner times worked well for us.

Book an independent private tour. Much cheaper and better. Good place to buy rugs and leather goods. Beware the hard sell on the "factory" tours.
