Not long enough on the islands

07 Jul 2013 - 12 Jul 2013

Don't get me wrong - the trip was great, but I did expect more.
The trip was a cruise that was run by a third party, the ship it's self was average, as well as the food. But that's not what we're there for! I was some what disappointed that we didn't stay long on the islands at all. For example, Santorini. I was soooooo looking forward to it but after getting off the boat, we only had about 4hrs on the island. I did the optional tour to Oia, which was expensive!! Essentially the tour was a coach that took us to Oia- the place with white roofs. It was absolutely stunning!!!! I also wanted to do the volcano tour, but I could only pick one due to time. Patmos was incredibly boring... And Mykonos, spent about 4hrs there too. Once you were on the boat, free to do whatever you wanted. Only had to meet up when you were getting off the boat. All in all - I would have preferred to see the islands in more depth.
