If anyone has been on this cruise I would be very grateful for any tips regarding drinks packages and excursions - is it cheaper to do our own thing? Are there any beaches we can visit or is it pretty much sightseeing? What is the night time entertainment like? How do we tip the waiters etc?? What type of clothing do we need for day and night??
Any guidance will be a great help!!
Hi - i hope this reply isn't too late for you to see it.
At Kusadasi - the MUST SEE is the Ephesus area with the ancient city. It mightn't sound much but I thought it was tremendous.
Athens - my advice is take an umbrella. Maybe you'll be luckier!
Of course you have to see the Parthenon area - you can't say you've been there if you don't.
Whatever you do - enjoy it all!
