somebody telling me what to do with my time--figuring that out is part of the fun.
However, if you're taking a cruise through the Mediterranean, I'm convinced this is the only guide you should consider buying. Cruising gives you such a limited time in each city that you *need* someone who can tell you how to manage your time effectively. And Rick does that in a way that none of the other guidebooks do.
Let me try to list the ways that this book is incredibly useful.
-Gives you a lot (140 pages) of information about cruising. This includes, among other things, overviews of various cruise lines, tipping etiquette, when/how to book a cruise, the difference between docking and tendering, etc.
-Detailed information on almost every single major port in the Mediterranean, from Spain to Turkey (23 in total)
-The information and recommendations are designed to maximize your time and minimize your hassle. Unlike, say, Fodors or Eyewitness, he'll tell you if something is overrated and not worth your time.
-Breaks down transportation options very well and provides useful maps for every destination
-Gives walking tours through ancient sites and city centers
There are a few things to bear in mind, however. The first is that Rick covers 23 ports but that's by no means all of them. If your Mediterranean cruise goes to Bodrum in Turkey or Kotor in Montenegro or Valletta in Malta or anywhere in Israel, Egypt, or Tunisia, Rick won't be able to help you.Read more ›
