Mostly Disapointing, Lacking Major Ports of Call
By Ronald Anderson
I made this last minute purchase becasue I had not adequatly prepped for my med cruise. One positive is that the Roo recommendations were quick and easy find. Unfortunatly, the book did not cover half of my ports of call including beautuiful Chania - on the island of Crete, Greece; Bodrum, Turkey - a huge tourism port; and Kusadasi, Turkey - the gateway to the ancient city of Ephesus. For Istanbul the guide did have good advice to stroll from Taksim Square to the Galata tower but lacked the tip to take the oldest subway in the world on the way back back to avoid the steep climb and just for the experience of it. (http://www.wittistanbul.com/magazine/how-to-avoid-the-steep-climb-to-taksim-or-cihangir/) The guide also lacked the tip that from the cruise port, all city destinations are up a steep grade so don't try it on foot. Think of San Francisco grades but steeper. In all you get what you pay for. Next time I will be less frugal and get a name brand guide.
