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.

My Getaway on Getaway

By Anne Eaves

I have just returned from an 8 night Baltic cruise on NCL Getaway. This was a first for me for the Baltic and on this ship. Having previously sailed on NCL Epic 5 times I was looking forward to trying a different ship and I wasnt disappointed. We had 2 days in Copenhagen prior to the cruise and stayed at the Admiral Hotel which is in Nyhavn. The hotel is situated on the river and is a great location close to the Amalienborg Palace. We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

Party Animal At My Age?

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
