Would give this a lot higher rating except for our disastor of an excursion. This was the Oia, Fira & Winery tour -- we were supposed to see vineyards, etc.
The winery tour as a joke...I didn't see a winery. We stood in long lines with about 5 tour buses full of people, were handed glasses of wine and then corraled into their gift shop. They should've paid us to go on the tour.
We then went to Oia -- on the other end of the island from where we catch the ship. Beautiful place. Just what you see in postcards. We debated on making one purchase and stopped to buy it. We were FIVE MINUTES late getting back to the bus and the bus was gone!
We were on the other end of the island. My bag with my cruise card was on the bus as well as purchases we had made. Luckily, I had pulled out my driver license and credit card.
We took a public bus to the other end of the island and spent a stressful time figuring out how to get back on ship, paid for the aerial car (that was supposed to be included!).
The guide's name was Helen.
No one apologized...
We were told by crew members that they had never heard of that happening.
We've cruise on RC and Celebrity and never ever saw anyone left!
