Crazy to think MSC can get away with this place being a port of call. In its defence, the beaches are stunning in Ksamil, but you feel edgy and uncomfortable the whole time. It says a lot when one of the two buses leaves a full 2 hours ... Read More
Crazy to think MSC can get away with this place being a port of call. In its defence, the beaches are stunning in Ksamil, but you feel edgy and uncomfortable the whole time. It says a lot when one of the two buses leaves a full 2 hours early with not a spare seat available. The second bus wasn't far behind it! Read Less

This was pretty much a waste. None of the tours looked appealing, so we went into town and walked around. Not much to see.

To be fair, a clean promenade, restaurants looked ok, gypsy beggars (ladies with children) sprawled on the pavement, a very busy but pebbly beach. We left after a couple of drinks and 2 hours. Didn't want to go to National Park, ... Read More

Shopping and food/drink very cheap and easy to take a swim from town beaches but nothing else to commend it.

Tender to shore for this port. Stayed onboard the ship due to a number of negative views about this place. However, it looked nice from the ship !!!

The port of Sarande in Albania was my least favorite, the port city appeared dirty and had a very industrial smog like smell to it. There wasn't much to do if you didn't do an excursion, and the excursion we did wasn't fantastic. We saw the ruins of Butrint, which were fascinating, but our guide wasn't very engaging, and moved through each area very slowly, leaving a lot of time for your mind to wander. You could also tell that Albania doesn't allot much funding to the preservation of it's ruins, as their mosaic floors (the part of the ruins I was most interested in seeing) were covered with sand to preserve them.

We did the 4 x 4 in the mountains. It was a very bumpy road and winding roads. Lots of walking. Had a snack and glass of wine in a cabin like place and watched the Albanian dancers.
