Went on this cruise in August - extremely hot but lovely! Dubrovnik old Town - you can buy shuttle bus tickets on board ship or at the dockside for about £8 each to take you to and from the old town. As there were 4 of us we paid 10 euros each way in a taxi from the ship - cheaper. Corfu - about a 25 min walk to old town where we went on a 'little train' around the area. Cephalonia - stayed in port - pretty place with fruit market and a row of touristy shops one road back from the port. Katakolon - small port with a few shops. Athens - we did the ship's excursion to the Parthenon etc - very interesting tho a bit pricey for 4! Hope this helps. K Kin.

Hi Yeah, do your own thing, you can go on trips with local taxis and buses for a fraction of the cost of OV's trips. I.E monaco with ov was something like £28 per person, I got the bus return for about £4.00!!! These cruise lines only use local companies and add a huge profit margin, you can use local companies direct all with the correct insurance etc and save your self a small fortune, hope this helps.

hya- just back from this - we did not do many organised tours but hope the following info helps - Dubrovnick- OV run a bus which is £8 each return to the town from the dock but a taxi is only 10 e each way. taxis will also do a tour of highlights for 50 e .we went sea kayaking which was great fun . Corfu - Unless you want to go just to the old town which is 10e each way book a trip as local taxis are v expensive- eg 60e to dassia beach which is not v far away Cephelonia - 9e by taxi to long beack - which was v nice -8 e for 2 beds and a brolley. Katakolon - we missed due to the fires Athens- we did taste of athens which was v goood - there are lots of taxis who would do a tour of the best bits for 50e .

Went on this cruise mid July. Lovely scenery good ports which most are easy to go into town/beach your own way. Do NOT go on the trip to the Trojas Mountains wast of money in Cyprus. Have put in a complaint. All other trips we went on great. Roy Surrey 8th September 200.
