Split in Croatia was charming and we couldn't resist walking the 180 steps up the ancient tower to view the town from above. It was worth it.
We had visited Corfu before and just wanted to remain relaxing on board.
The last port was Katakolon in Greece, a pleasantly situated small town by which you can visit Olympia. We did this by a modern train for 10 Euros return and the site at Olympia was beautifully situated amongst trees with Columns and ruins.
Mykonos was lovely and much smarter than we had found it 8 years ago. We had drinks in a bar right on the water front overlooking Little Venice. A bit expensive but the perfect memorable location. We wandered the winding streets and admired the 'arty' shops and were lucky to find the pelican in an open phone booth! Perhaps calling relatives in Florida!
Santorini was by tender which was very efficiently done. We used the modern cable cars to get up the cliff face and took a local bus to the beautiful town of Oia, which is essential as it is the Santorini of our dreams and not the main town which I found disappointing. Unfortunately the queue for the cable cars was too long and we wanted to return to the ship for lunch so we descended by 600 steps. Don't do this! We had to pass over 100 very sad mules and donkeys who are forced to take heartless visitors up and down all day in incredible heat. This depressed me because intelligent young people were using them while most of the middle aged and old folk were appalled by the sight of them obviously suffering. I had spoken to many people to try and discourage them and had some success while others seemed oblivious.
