"Mykonos port - It’s important to be flexible when it comes to docking or tendering on your Mykonos cruise..."
There are two things that can happen when you visit Mykonos Greece as part of your Mediterranean cruise.
First, your cruise ship can dock in the New Port at Tourlos, which is about 1.2 miles away from the Mykonos village.
In the Mykonos port itself there is nothing apart from the dock itself, no terminal buildings, no shopping facilities or anything like that, so the only thing to do is head to the Mykonos village.

Another thing that can happen is that your cruise ship anchors in front of the Mykonos village. In that case you would get ashore with tender boats.
They would drop you off NOT at Mykonos New Port but at the pier on the waterfront of Mykonos village, only steps away from the restaurants and shopping. The tender ride takes about 5-10 minutes.
It’s important to be flexible when it comes to docking or tendering on your Mykonos cruise. Although you might be scheduled to dock/tender, unexpected things can always happen in the port of Mykonos: strong winds, a ship coming in before yours and taking up the berth spot and your ship’s plans can change in a second.
Time-wise, no option is better than the other really… although dropping you off straight in the village might seem like a time saver, you will lose some time waiting to get on the tender boat in the first place.
It will also take some time to get from the port to the village, due to its distance from the village, and waiting for the next available shuttle bus.
