Port Rating: Not Rated

Mykonos: We decided to do this one on our own. We took the ship’s bus into Mykonos Town (Hora) and walked and shopped and took lots of pictures. We got to see Petros, the pelican, not once but twice, and we had chicken souvlaka and baklava (yummy!) for lunch. It was fun just wandering and taking in the sites of the town. It was very windy out and hazy but no rain.

Corfu: We previously visited this island on our last Med cruise and took a ship’s tour of the main sites of the island. We decided to take the ship’s bus and walk Corfu town on our own. My wife had a great time shopping, and I had a great time taking pictures of the many streets and the two forts. We found a small bakery here and had some excellent baklava ?. We received a detailed map of Corfu Town on the bus with all the streets labeled in English. This would have been perfect, but all of the street signs were in Greek! It was easy to get lost, and we did ? . All in all it was a great day again with perfect weather.

Dubrovnik: We previously visited this city also on our last Med cruise on a ship’s tour. Unfortunately, all of our pictures were lost due to my camera getting stolen in Barcelona. So we took the ship’s bus into town to tour on our own. We exchanged some Euros for Kunas and took the Cable Car up to the top of the hill above the walled city. What a spectacular view on another picture perfect day. Well worth the 94 Kunas each. Next we went back down and walked the wall (there went 90 Kunas each and 15 Kunas for some water). Very tiring but spectacular, and a lot of Kodak moments were had. We finished up with some shopping to spend the last 48 Kunas on some sea salt (supposedly some of the best in the world) for cooking before it was back to the ship. My wife rested up, and I walked around the port before dinner.
