Go up to the top deck of the ship early in the morning for spectacular views of the ship entering the port and making a near 180° turn just before the scenic bridge. At this port, there's really no need to do a guided excursion, unless you want to travel beyond the old town. MSC offers a shuttle to the old town (2.5 miles away) for a small fee. It's easy to walk around the old town on your own and see all the major sights within a couple of hours. Plan to walk about 1 ½ to 2 miles exploring the streets and walls. There is a large concentration of majestic, old cathedrals here. The financial investment in these churches could feed the entire city for years! The narrow side streets have many small shops selling everything from unique Croatian handicrafts to Chinese tchotchkes. Most only take the local currency and you will see many signs reading “no euros”. There are ATMs on nearly every corner, making it easy to withdraw a little pocket money for the day. Read Less

Dubrovnik on a Friday was very busy but we enjoyed time on our own getting a reasonably priced taxi there and back.

* Dubrovnik - After that sea day we arrived in Dubrovnik (a site well known to us); used the ship transfer ($15 return) and we toured on our own. We knew what we wanted to do (one of the few things still not seen) so on arrival walked over to the cable car ticket office (for about 15 minutes) ; no line ups but we considered the price of a return ticket quite excessive (22 Euros); after that there is another long walk to the entrance to the cable car itself (luckily the line-up was quite small); the view from the top was breathtaking, helped by the superb sunny (and hot!) day we were having. There is an outdoor restaurant up there but it was quite busy so back to the main plaza, found a very nice and tranquil trattoria (St. Blaise @ Lucarica St., right side of the church) with very polite and nice servers. Good food and very good but pricy wine!! Great time and much needed. Indeed Dubrovnik is a tourist trap and is nothing you can do to avoid it. Read Less
