I've read that there are two port places in the Istanbul area for cruise ships, and the specific dock place is chosen based on availability. Is this correct? My cruise documents have a sheet that says to present two addresses to the taxi driver - "Salipazari Yolcu Salonu-Meclisi Mebusan Caddesi, Salipazari or Karakoy Yolcu Salonu, Karakoy." How is the taxi driver to know which one to go to?? It's the Azamara cruise line, but apparently they're not permanently assigned to one or the other of these two port places.
Is it possible to take public transportation there? (just trying to avoid taxis) It would be on a Saturday afternoon in September. We have just carry-on luggage, and would be going from Sultanahmet.
I'd appreciate hearing of others' experiences. Thanks!
