I think I have made a mistake by booking to go over next week ie 21 April.
Will any of the shops be open to shop for furniture and electrical items ?
Could be a big mistake. The first time we ever did this we did it at Greek easter and to tell you the truth it was pretty much a waste of time. The shops shut on Thursday and then don't open again until Tuesday. Add this to the problem of non tourist shops only opening three evenings a week anyway and it dosn't give you much time to shop around. I also found that few people could deliver in those couple of weeks and many where very low on stock as everyone is buying new things for their houses, appartments etc., for the start of the season.

Hi Graham and all. I travel often with Minoan because I live in Venice. If you check now, there is still plenty of space both in 23th and 25th of April. I noticed that, specially in low season, if you check months before the day you are interested in, easily you will find yellow square (limited availability). But if you check one or two weeks earlier of the day you want to leave, you can see the real situation of the boat and, nearly always, you will find green square (available). The prices of the boat change just with the season, doesn't matter if you book them one day or two months before. So, except for July and August it worth to check and book few weeks before to leave.
I will leave on Friday and I have booked today :)
