Taormina (Messina)
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
A great little town, with plenty to see and do.

We organised our own taxi and had a great day. Food, views and history all there for a lovely visit.

Athens (Piraeus)
Acropolis Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Too much time left at Plaka for Shopping, but otherwise a great informative tour.

If travelling in peak summer take the earliest tour to the Acropolis to allow for the high temperatures

Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
If you want a carpet, this is the place to be. However, I really should have booked a tour and missed out on a lot of experiences.

Be prepared to be hassled by shop owners

Mykonos
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Easy to get around Mykonos. A great place to visit and walk through.

Would have liked Celebrity to offer something different like a Quadbike tour.

Santorini

Fira is a beautiful destination and easy to get around.

We took the cable car up to the top then the bus to OIA. This is a lovely town to walk around but in peak holiday period, very difficult to leave as the busses are filled very quickly with pushing people. THe bus companies have no system when it comes to boarding or departing the bus and it becomes a very dangerous exercise. Time for them to put in a queue system and to stop the pushing and shoving.

Often if there are several ships tendered, the line to the cable car can be extremely long. The alternative is to walk down the donkey track which takes about 1/2 an hour. be warned that the track is slippery and extremely smelly.

Naples
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Whilst the architecture is beautiful in Naples, it is a dangerous town with plenty of pickpockets and beggars, however I did notice a much stronger police presence this visit.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Rome is one of the most fascinating, beautiful energetic cities of Europe. There is something for everyone and always more to see each visit.
