Cruise Ships docking;which days of the week?

Good day. I am curious as to which days of the week Cruise Ships dock in mid-September? Is it set days, or flexible?

We'll be renting a small place outside of Chania, and just figure we can do our "day tripping"to different towns/villages on cruise ship days, then enjoy strolling around Chania Town when it is less crowded!!!

Any input would be appreciated.

Just 2 more weeks till our trip!!!

It's usually Fridays, but I don't think you'll see too much difference. In early September, there are plenty of other tourists around & the cruise ships offer day trips to many places, not just Chania. For instance, they send coaches to the tiny villages of Gavalohori, Vamos etc.

If you really want to avoid them, you could go right up into the mountains, or stay on the beach!

Enjoy Hania.

I agree with JWugg. Chania is not Santorini, where most visitors arrive on ships. I have never noticed any difference, the port and surrounding streets of Chania are always crowded in season.
