We are taking a cruise in Juy and one of the ports is Chania. I've always wanted to visit Crete. This will only be a tease, but I'd like to make the most of the short visit. (We port at 7 a.m. and depart at 3 p.m.)
It's such a short day. We were considering one of the pre-made excursions with the cruise company, but the beach doesn't look that great compared to what Crete has to offer.
We would also like to spend at least an hour or two in Chania, as I know it is worth looking around.
If we all pay for the cruise excursion we'd be paying $300 as a family.
I'm suspecting there may be another option to a better beach. We do want to keep it easy, as we can't be delayed.
