Crete is a bit remote, hot and rocky, but the famous site of Knossos helps tell the story of an ancient civilization and should not be missed. Large crowds cans make the overall visit a bit more stressful. We enjoyed the Princess excursion all-day tour that provided lunch and comprehensive visiting of the island, especially with a stop in the scenic tourist town of Agios Nikolaos. ...

Another port crawling with tourists today. Returned to the Palace of Knossos after many years only to find that one can no longer enter rooms that were once available for viewing up close. Also learned that much of the restoration at this site is not authentic but created by the discoverer of the day. ...

We had a very busy, port intensive itinerary on this cruise so we decided to do a beach day for our last port. We didn't spend any time in Limassol. We pre-booked a private driver/guide who drove us to an area where we did a short hike up to a spectacular view point over Balos beach and then we drove on to Falassarna beach. Guide had reserved our sun beds and shades right next to the water. It was ...
