A truly stunning scene. The view from the harbour (we have to tender in) cannot be put into words. First thing this morning I took photographs from the upper deck. A selection and a short video are attached. Fortunately only two ships here today, once again we can avoid the crowds. We leave at 12:30 for a three hour tour, choosing the Cunard organized trip this time as it promises to cover quite a lot of the area. To everyone who said take the donkey - one look ...

The ship came into the port at 7am and our excursion departed right away. As the ship could not dock at Santorini, we had to be tendered. It was so exciting to step out onto an open ferry and look up at the very high cliffs with tiny villages ...
