What ship stops there? We did a cruise 4 years ago in Greece and Turkey and stopped in Fethiye, which was our favorite port, then to Bodrum, onto Kusadasi and up to Istanbul. We have been to Turkey many times and have always had a great time. The people are very friendly, if you can dodge the carpet salesmen, and the food is delicious.
Try the apple tea (Chai?), either warm or cold. It tastes like an apple Jolly Rancher candy. Coffee is delish, as are the tomatoes. Don't know what they do to them, but they are fantastic! I hope you enjoy Marmaris as much as I did!

Do the Turkish Bath thing. I have been in them all over Turkey and you won't get the experience anywhere else. They are very accommodating to tourists. They literally scrub the dirt off of you and you feel so relaxed when they are finished.
