In my many years, I realize thhat language can be a major point of
communication. I am sure that all this was "lack of communication".
Thanks for explaining your position. In brief, most of our
cruising in Turkey was in the Sea of Marmaris.
We went through the Dardenelles into the Sea of Marmaris and then
. Had a great passage
and visited many places along the
way. We were amazed at how well traffic control works for the Big
Ships. Kind of scary at first bercause the traffic is quite heavy but
overall, it was a great experience. Just don't get caught by the
"meltemi" on the way to Istanbul!! We had it on our way back from Istanbul
and it was a great RIDE!! Hope this helps.
