Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any comments or suggestions on things to do or see in Split or our other stops? We are scheduled to be in port there on the Norwegian Gem on July 4 for 6 hours or so.
We have only been on one other cruise, a 12 night Mediterranean cruise, two summers ago on Celebrity Summit and it was great. At that time we booked shore excursions for almost all of our stops. This time we would like to avoid those if a better way is possible. Our itinerary includes Split(8am-4pm), Corfu(10-5), Santorini(4-11 - which we visited last cruise), Mykonos(8-4), and Iraklion(7-noon).
I'd like to rent a car in Corfu and maybe Santorini or even bicycles on some of the stops. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Scheduled: Norwegian Gem, Greek Isles - July 2010
I ll be there in June, got a guidebook and it said most of city is only for walkers, cars limited...so guess its ok for bikes...we just plan to see the old town area, window shop, eat at one of many local outside eateries...look at small local churchs,etc....looks very quaint,small and scenic....can t wait...We re going on the SeaDream from Dubrovnik to Venice,its only 112 passengers so able to dock in many small ports.First time on it,got good reviews...hope you have a great time...
