Hi Cruisers, Today we are going to talk about booking shore excursions on your own. Your cruise ship will likely have a shore excursions desk right on the ship. The excursions you book on the ship are handled by the cruise line, and offer a lot of security. For example, if you are delayed on a cruise line’s excursion, the ship will wait for you. This may not be the case if you book your shore excursions on your own. Booking your shore excursions on the ship may seem like the easiest way to go, but what if you want to try something different, and maybe break away from the cruise ship crowd?
