MSC Eastern Mediterranean Cruise Review
After passing through the Dardanelles Strait and the Marmaris
Sea during the night, we approached Istanbul's Karakoy Pier and Cruise
Terminal just before 7:30 a.m.
This would be our longest port visit during MSC Poesia's 7-day
Eastern Mediterranean cruise: We'd be in Istanbul for 9
hours, with at least 8 hours to spend on shore before returning to ship for its
5 p.m. departure.
(The ship in the photo above is the
Black Watch of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.)
