Hi there experienced cruisers, I wondered whether anyone can help me?! We (My husband, daughter, Mum and Dad) are due to go on an Eastern Med cruise and have been sent a guide to book excursions before we depart. We have streteched ourselves financially to go on the cruise itself and wondered whether these are really necessary or if you can have just as much fun exploring on your own. I'm currently researching where the ports are in relation to the main cities/sights. I would be really grateful if anyone could give me some advice on this. Do any stand out that really could do with an excursion booking? Are the local tour companies a cheaper alternative?
We are going to:

Mykonos, Greece
Rhodes, Greece
Santorini, Greece
Istabul Turkey
Ephesus (Kudadasi) Turkey
Athens (Piraeus) Greece
Naples/Capri Italy
Rome Italy

I eagerly await your replies!
