18 Kusadasi Cruise Reviews

As we had visited Ephesus twice before we decided to stay in Kusadasi and as we were there 30 years ago and keen to see if it had changed - it had but sadly not for the better!

Didn't like this port of call no sooner had we disembarked the ship, we were hounded from shop owners trying to sell us things and very rude to you when you said you weren't interested, this was not a very pleasant experience, we should have been allowed to browse at our own leisure without being harassed all the time.

This was the only port stop we did not book a tour for. We had researched the port and discovered there was a large bizarre just at the port so thought this would suffice. We were travelling with our 2 teenage daughters, 16 & 18yrs. We ... Read More
This was the only port stop we did not book a tour for. We had researched the port and discovered there was a large bizarre just at the port so thought this would suffice. We were travelling with our 2 teenage daughters, 16 & 18yrs. We were all dressed fairly covered but this did prevent a lot of unwanted attention from the Turkidh men! This was horrible. They kept touching my girls and me and made several inappropriate comments. They got several proposals of marriage - whilst you may read this and feel, we have no sense of humour, please imagine the bizarre is quite enclosed and like a rabbit warren and we certainly did not encourage this attention we just wanted to shop. It was very uncomfortable and unsettling. This was our first taste of Turkey and we will probably never return. First impressions! Read Less

Unless you want to be completely hassled by all the shopkeepers then don't bother getting off. The town is mainly shops with "genuine fake" products and they are all the same. The shopkeepers shout to you constantly. Most ... Read More
Unless you want to be completely hassled by all the shopkeepers then don't bother getting off. The town is mainly shops with "genuine fake" products and they are all the same. The shopkeepers shout to you constantly. Most people I spoke to would happily have missed this port out. The main reason for the ship stopping here was Ephesus but we had already seen it. Read Less

Unless you are going on a shore excursion and unless you don't mind being constantly hassled, I recommend staying put! I certainly will never go there again - the hassle was good natured but eventually became a real pain. I witnessed ... Read More
Unless you are going on a shore excursion and unless you don't mind being constantly hassled, I recommend staying put! I certainly will never go there again - the hassle was good natured but eventually became a real pain. I witnessed the most awful cruelty of a local beating his dog which left me in tears. So nope, this is one place I would recommend definitely giving a miss, unless you have nerves of steel! Read Less

Avoid at all costs, there is so much hassle from locals trying desperately to sell fake designer goods that after a while you begin to feel threatened.

If you don't take a tour and stay around the port - you will wish you had taken a tour. The shopkeepers won't leave you alone. They try to get you to go into their stores and follow you asking you what you're looking for. We ... Read More
If you don't take a tour and stay around the port - you will wish you had taken a tour. The shopkeepers won't leave you alone. They try to get you to go into their stores and follow you asking you what you're looking for. We would have preferred Istanbul instead of Kusadasi. Read Less
