Hi In responding to George and Marta ,.... more or less the same thing
happened to us, and we found the short cruise trip acceptable as Nicole
and Peter did, one thing I must emphasize: it is more fun and much, much
less money to do on your own all the land excursions.
Taxis are waiting at the different Ports. The ideal is to find another
couple on board to share, the savings are tremendous. Also in a taxi you
can leave immediately no need to wait for 40 other passengers.
For instance in Rhodas we hired a taxi all day for $50 per couple, which
was probable a lot for him, saving $130 per couple , not only we were
taken to more attractions but at our request he took us swimming at a
beautiful little beach and to lunch in lovely restaurant, and guess what....he
took us to his house to meet his family over a glass of limonade.
