Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by Stevenson (10 Jul 08 19:45)

One way to see Ephesus is with a ship’s tour but it is not cheap. The best way is to get on the net and arrange for a guide who will arrange the taxi and take you through and explain everything. You can negotiate for a taxi to take you to the starting point and meet you at the other end. Sometimes they will provide a guide and sometimes it is possible to "acquire" one at the start of Ephesus. Some people use a taxi then wait for a passing tour and latch onto it and piggyback their way through. Certainly it is a tour you should do one way or another, it's fabulous in the literal sense. Whichever enjoy ... Neil .

You can get to Athens easily enough from Piraeus so that wouldn't be a problem. I'm not sure how easy it is to get to Ephesus from Kusadasi? You may need to get a taxi and I'm not sure how much that would cost, but if you do that, agree a price in advance, and negotiate! One point to bear in mind is that we did an excursion to Ephesus a few years ago, but went to several other places as well which you probably couldn't do on your own, plus we had a brilliant guide, which is also something you'd not get going on your own. The other warning I always give is that if you go on an excursion from the ship, and get held up, it's their responsibility to get you back on board, if you go on your own and get held up it's your responsibility, and the ship won't wait for you! We got back from this cruise last Friday and had a brilliant time (see my review) and I'm sure you will too :-).

Why is it all about the kids?

By Leanne Mudd

Royal Caribbean announced last month the exciting new features for Independence of the Seas after her refit in early 2018, but I can’t help feeling it’s all about the kids! And what are we going to loose on board to make room for these new features as they are not building an extension to accommodate it all.I sailed on this ship when she first launched back in 2007 and loved it back then. When i went back in 2016, it felt like she hadn’t changed, which in some ways was good ...

The UKs favourite family ship ...

By Rosie Taylor

Rosie Taylor's blog

The Independence of the seas first sailed over 10 years ago now and has spent most of the summer months sailing out of Southampton. The ship is purpose built to deal with all sorts of weather and is very popular with the Brits.It doesnt matter who you ask about the Independence… they always have great feedback and find it hard to look at other ships as an alternative.Just recently, however a few have said the carpets are a bit worn in the cabins, could do with a lick of paint, the smoke...

Will I be below the water line?

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

“Will I be below the water line?” is a question that I am frequently asked when selling both river and oceans cruises. For an oceans cruise this is a simple question to answer, as whilst the lower deck cabins are numbered 1 or 2 and sound close to the water, there are always at least a couple of crew decks below, meaning that even on a low passenger deck you are still very clear of the water.River boats are smaller though and typically only have 3 or 4 decks to them, with deck ...
