Thanks for the info! It certainly does seem like they are rolling out the welcome mat for the cruise passengers. It sounds like they are excited the ships are docking there. I imagine it really helps the economy.
But it does sound like the bus prices have increased. Earlier posts had indicated about 3 euros round trip. But I don't mind paying the extra for the extra perks and convenience.
Thanks for the post! It looks like they'll be providing the bus service for the remainder of the year...woohoo...we plan on getting rid of some calories by walking around Chania...thanka again.Dear All, We're going to be on the 20 Sept sailing and have recently requested/received current bus info (as of 4 July 2011) from Chania's Antonis Konstantoudakis as follows: "The bus takes you from the cruise ship to terminal at Chania Central (very close to the old harbor) so you don’t need to worry about the bus stop at Souda or the departure time. The return is also very well organized. The departure point from Chania to Souda is outside the old market which is at Chania Central. The bus fare is 1.50 € Souda – Chania Central and 3,00€ including return. You can purchase tickets outside of the cruise ship from our kiosks".
Have a great time in Chania!
