... On the way back, we noticed the Seabourn Spirit was also in the port. We last saw that ship in Mykonos. We had some lunch and relaxed on board for the remainder of the afternoon. The Captain's Club (repeat cruisers club) had the Senior Officers' cocktail party where you can get a picture with the captain and meet the senior officers from 7:45 until 8:30.

... we didn't get more time at the Parthenon, (especially since it was Haley's first time). The view from the top is spectacular; it's something you could gaze at for a long while. The other disappointment was that, during our visit, the Parthenon was more of an eyesore than a grand monument. As it was the last time i was it, the stone monster was under construction.
