Default Re: Visas in Eastern Mediterranean

I am confused! Do we need a visa for Turkey if we are stopping there as part of a cruise? Our ship, the Rotterdam VI, stops in Kusadasi as part of a 12-day Med cruise. My TA made several phone calls and was told we do not need visas as long as we go with the ship's shore tours. However, the HAL brochure (which was probably printed a year ago) implies that we do need visas for Turkey, even if we don't get off the ship! This cruise-only travel agency has been in business for 20 years and handled our other cruises beautifully, but somehow I'm not 100% comfortable with his answer. Helen
