I am truly hoping this will get resolved very soon..Can't predict what will happen during the next year -- and especially when tourist season rolls around next summer in Greece -- but I will say that while the unrest initially spread to the Greek Islands, the epicenter is in Athens. Haven't heard much on islands like Santorini, Mykonos, etc. being in the headlines.
Our cruise is not until sept 09 but seems the social climate in Greece is not what we expected... We have non-refundable air & most of our Solstice ports are in Greece....If we are able to go we will only take ship's excursions .just in case!
We already cancelled one trip due to fires,,,
