One of seven port stops while on a life memorable Med cruise, the island of Santorini was so highly recommended, that we had to include it into our cruise ports. Well I can tell you; everything we heard about this breathtaking and magnificient island was true to its form. The ocean view from the upper deck of our cruise liner as it turned the corner that gave us a sea level view of Santorini was absolutely breathtaking. What a gorgeous island. All the cliff embeded villas, the waterfront cafes', the overly friendly Greek cultural greetings and the waterfront and the views from this island was spectacular! Everything we heard, everything we've read was exactly what we seen, touched and witnessed with our own eyes.
All in all, we visited four of the Greek islands, and by far, of the four that we seen, Santorini truly is a hidden Greek paradise. My lady friend and I made a mutual promise to each other to come back again and take in ( once again) the incredible sunsets, the old Greek culture all that Santorini has that took our breath away!! You have to see it to believe it!!
