Izmir
Port Rating: Not Rated
I just walked along the waterfront - scenic and peaceful.

Athens (Piraeus)
Port Rating: Not Rated
Metro easy enough to figure out. Getting to metro, not so much. Acropolis entrance hard to find but worth seeing. Lack of directions and signage made it hard for me to see much else.

Istanbul
City Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
After visiting Athens solo, I decided to play it safe. Tour had about 30 people. We were able to spend enough time at the Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace, although its museums were more crowded than any I have ever seen. We had time for lunch and an hour in the Grand Bazaar on our own. It was enough. I would have been totally lost if I had tried to go on my own so I am satisfied with the excursion.

Stayed on board ship since I've been here before. There was a port and a metro strike so I am glad I decided not to visit.

Did a private excursion to Pisa, Florence, and Chianti Wine region. Visited La Cantina Greve in Greve and was able to taste a wide variety of wines. Greve is very small and charming -- great gelato.
