Where do we book or look out for the cruises available . All Turkish travel agents have their website in Turkish !

Thanks for your help .

1. Re: Cruises

Hello JAFFER. As you have posted on the İzmir Forum, I presume you are planning to begin your cruising from here.

You could travel the 80 kms west of İzmir to Çeşme and get a ferry to the Greek island of Chios just an hour's sail and a good start for 'hopping' to other Greek Islands. There are daily ferries in the summer months and information and bookings can be made here; www.erturk.com.tr/index.asp…

I also suggest you look at this website for planning your trip: paleologos.forth-crs.gr/english/npgres.exe…

You may find 3 - 4 days is not enough when you start planning! Please let me know if I can help further.
