Excellent restaurants in port. Nice tour of castle.

Santorini, Greece

4 out of 5
Spectacular port with horrible transportation up & down the caldera. Looooooong lines. 4-cruise ships with 10,000+ people vying for same cable cars. Excellent restaurants in Oia. Need more time ashore. Too much to see with so many people.

Naples, Italy

3 out of 5
Nice bus tour once away from the port. Pretty dirty city.
