    ... of Santorini is the newly forming volcano, a separate island, which has erupted twice (minor eruptions) in the last 50 years.

    There isn't a place for big cruise ships to port directly on the island, so instead they do a tender, where small boats drive groups of tourists from the ship to the island.
