This was a last minute cruise for a quick week – the price had come up as good with flights included. I had always wanted to see Istanbul and this cruise gave us 2 days there – ideal for us. We also visited Volos – a new destination for Cunard and maybe some other cruise lines? – A lovely place – even though it has apparently been wiped out due to earthquakes in 1955 – but the whole city was bustling and yet they had the beautiful med on their doorstep – also (supposedly) where Jason and the Argonauts set sail. Lots of lovely shops and cafes, The downside is that the only real excursion is to – Meteora Monastery – so not a load of choice – but I was happy just being port side. Istanbul was superb and we used our two whole days well – knowing which tourist attractions are open and closed on different days of the week is helpful ( so homework was required) and we were lucky that we had picked Hagia Sophia to visit on one day as it was closed the next day! The hop on/off bus was also worth doing for the two days as it kept costs down over two days. Mykonos was our other port of call and we were lucky enough to have a berth – rather than tender. The small alleyways and blue rooftops were so sublime. The Windmills at the top of the village were also pretty – even if there were no sails on them – we could have sat all day in the town looking out at the sea! Youngsters may want to explore the small island by hiring the usual scooters – or do an excursion to a beach for the day – however just sitting watching the world go by is enough for me.
