Very busy due to 5 ships that were visiting. Took a speed boat to Oia but very little time to explore before bus back. Stunning views from the top before queuing up for cable car back down to tender boat.

Mykonos, Greece

5 out of 5
Favourite port, picturesque and clean and not too crowded

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

4 out of 5
Booked excursion with the ship - very expensive - Acropolis a must

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

4 out of 5
Took a bus €8 to Olympia - very interesting - bus back and spent a little time on small beach near the ship


5 out of 5
