Going on a cruise to venice, athens, mykonos, rhodes, and dubrovnick. Has anyone been to these ports? Should you try to explore on your own or is it worth it to use rccl's tours? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
We did Splendor 12 night last May. Only port of those you mentioned which was included on our cruise was Venice. Just had to write to tell you that you WILL love Venice! (I was so surprised - I did NOT expect to enjoy Venice as much as I did!) We did Hawaii this year in April and really miss not sailing RCL in the Medit. this year However, we are busily looking over brochures planning a return to the Medit. for next May. Any itinerary will do - - - as long as there is an "overnight" in Venice.
Sorry I can't help you with the ports you mentioned other then Venice - but we just loved Venice - it was the highlight of our trip and we've visited all of the Medit. cities worth visiting (and then some). Also: Splendor is a great ship. You will love her.
(P.S.: Have a great cruise - and give Venice our regards!)
