Today it is just Princess and a smaller ship – about the same size as an Aida ship.
I could see Kusadaci had grown a little ...

After settling into our rooms (this time 2 connecting rooms so a lot more room than Bodrum and cheaper too) we went for a wander to get an idea of where we are. The train station is only 200m away (great for the train we need to get to the airport in two days time) and just outside the hotel there is the remains of an old aquaduct with storks nesting on it.
