Port Rating: 2.0 out of 5+

I have only rated this as 2 because there were 5 cruise ships in and walking around was almost impossible. It was like sardines. They are going to ruin these lovely small ports if they allow this many ships in. There were 9000 cruise pax on the day we were there and aparently in August there were 15000.

Dubrovnik is very easy to do by yourself. We never take an excursion if we can help it.

Only complaint about this stop was that it wasn't long enough. We arrived around 0830 and had to be back on board by 1430.

We took the Hop on bus to Mdina which was just lovely. Delightful place to wander around. We then also took the other route down to the south. Very good value at 10 Euros.

Corfu is another delightful place. As we have been here before, we did a bit of research before we went and found that a No. 10 local bus from the main square takes you to the Achilleon Palace and this proved to be well worth it. Bus fare was 3 euro return and the Palace was just beautiful. We then caught our return bus and wandered round the streets of Corfu/

Venice is of course a lovely port. We walked from the port to the People Mover which costs 1 Euro and takes you to Piazzale Roma where were bought our all day Vaporetto ticket - 18 Euro and we visited Torcello and Burano. Burano is where they make lace and is like a mini Venice. We really enjoyed our 2 hours there.

We then returned to Venice and did a little shopping and returned to the ship the same way we started.

Cadiz is a very pleasant place to wander around. We have been here many times.
