Korcula doesn't really need n island tour wherethe tender drops you is literally in the main town with old town with shops and market, shore side bars, and seaside Area with beach activities. Great place to just wander around and nowhere near as exhausting as some of the other ports you will be calling at. Be warned though they will NOT. take Euros only their local currency (in Dubrovnik they seem to take either) .

Hi for Corfu there is usually a shuttle bus to Corfu town which is worth a visit. There should also be a shuttle bus to take you from the port to the old town in Dubrovnik. Yes there are open top buses available in Malaga & Cadiz but we didn't find much to do in Cadiz last year & wished we had taken a tour to Seville. In Venice the port terminal is out side of main part of town & P&O charge £15 per person to transport you back to st marks square. Not visited your other ports. Hope this had been of help .

Korcula (pronounced Corchewla) you will be tendered ashore. No need to take a tour here as you can wander around the walled town with its' largely pedestrianised streets. A delightful place, and you can eat or drink at one of the many seafront cafes! Cephalonia - I would take a ship's tour - the highlights are the difficult-to-access golden beaches, Fiskardo, a delightful fishing village full of tavernas and tourist tat and the underground Mellisani Lake which is well worth a visit!

You are going on a great adventure, my wife and I did this intinary last October on the Queen Elizabeth, wonderful. We did not take any organised trips having decided to do ‘our own thing’; I must add that we are 52 and 53 respectively. In Cephalonia we hired a moped, whilst this is not for the faint hearted it was brilliant, there were also car hire firms on the main street which would give you the same freedom to travel across the island, go to Captain Correlli’s Café/Bar, if only to say that you have been. In Corfu we did just that hired a car, the car hire firm is on the pier head and is run by a Greek gentleman whose wife is Manchurian (we got the best price – as did everyone) 45 euros for the day + fuel. In Korcula having tendered shore, we walked out of the town toward to marina, returning to have a nice lunch; if we went again (and I hope we will) we would probably do the wine tasting tour as everyone we spoke to thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff in the restaurant we went to did take euros and it was inexpensive and tasty. I hope this helps your thought processes and I know you will enjoy this trip.

Thanks for all your answers it would seem we can do most of it ourselves, can't wait now especially looking out of the window here at all that white stuff.

What Would Be Your Dream Bucke...

By Eleni House

Did you know, that the Great Wall Of China can be seen from space?This week in the office I was rather excited for both for myself and for one of my customers. We had been speaking over the past few days regarding booking a journey of a lifetime for one of her bucket list itineraries that she has wanted to do for some time now. When putting together this type of Tailor Made cruise package, I always ensure we are getting exactly what the customer wants, as well as what they expect from their p...

Whether you are relatively new to cruising or a seasoned cruiser, you must have a favourite thing when it comes to cruising? Do you love the formal nights, is it the prospect of a new port of call, is it not having to do the laundry the whole time you are away, or sitting on your balcony just watching the sea go by and enjoying the peace and quiet?For me it always comes back to the same old thing – the food! I just can’t help myself at all. I spend all of my time just looking forw...

 Royal Caribbean cruises have brought some changes info effect this month with their on-board booking programmes. The changes I read about are mainly based on the US market and I am struggling to find out how we are effected here.One thing I have read is that Royal Caribbean will be taking the option away for people to receive their bonus on-board booking on-board credit on their current cruise and instead having to take it with the new cruise.Also I read that reduced deposits will not ...
