On a previous Caribbean cruise with CARNIVAL, we found the offered excursions either not our style (petting sting rays) or too expensive (for a retired couple). We found a "relatively" cheap way to fill the days in port by searching out local "luxury" hotels and paying a "day use" fee (around 10=>15 USD). We're now booked on a Mediteranean cruise with HOLLAND AMERICA and in certain ports (DUPROVNIK, KUSADASI, SANTORINI, and CORFU) we hope to be doing our touring in the morning and relaxing on a beach/in a swimming pool in the afternoon (if feasable). Does anyone have any recommend hotels that do this in the indicated ports?
P.S. Always bring your ship's "beach" towel as some hotels do not provide with the day use fee.
