Istanbul
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
There was a lot to see and do, and this was the most exotic port of the cruise. A little intimidating.

Ephesus was amazing. Kusadasi was also nice, if you can get past the aggressive market vendors.

Athens (Piraeus)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The Acropolis and the Parthenon met expectations, but Athens as a city was underwhelming. Of course, it was Sunday, and a lot of places were closed.

Everything was closed. It was a bore. Even if everything were open, it still doesn't have much appeal.
