MSC Eastern Mediterranean Cruise Review
On Monday morning, MSC Poesia
entered the harbor of Katakolon, Greece.
Katakolon (also called "Katakolo," the modern Romanized
spelling) is a village that faces the Ionian Sea on the western coast of the
Pelepponese peninsula in Southern Greece. It has only about 600 inhabitants but
seems larger due to the shops and restaurants that have been developed in recent
years to serve visiting cruise ships.
The port of Katakolon has deep water and two large piers
for cruise ships, which use Katakolon as a
staging point for tours to the ancient ruins of
Olympia, site of the
first Olympic games.
