We are taking the 7 day eastern Mediterranean cruise on Navigator Departing May 13, 2012 for our honeymoon. Neither me or my future husband has been on a cruise before, or to the Mediterranean for that matter.
Our itinerary is Messina, Sicily, Ephasus, Turkey, Crete and Athens. I have been researching private tours vs ship excursions and wanted to know if anyone had any opinions. we were thinking of doing a private tour with EkolTravel.com for Turkey (Tour 4). Has anyone ever used them before?
We were also looking into a private tour for Athens.
As for Crete and Sicily, what are your opinions on simply taking a taxi and visiting them ourselves?
Also, we aren't sure what to expect on the actual ship? Has anyone taken this ship before? Does anyone have any tips such as, where to eat and when is a good time, things to do, bars to go to ect?? We will be on our honeymoon so any answers that take that into consideration would be greatly appreciated.
And lastly, is anyone going on this particular ship at on May 13 2012? I would love to hear from you too!
Ha! I know this was a lot but I am so excited I can't contain myself!
