Whether you want to go out and explore every port you stop at, or if you’re just looking forward to one in-particular, there are excursions available for every passenger at every port no matter what you want to do. Here is a quick guide on how you can book an excursion for your cruise holiday.

The booking process

Here at Vision Cruise we recommend that you book excursions prior to your embarkation on the ship so your place will be guaranteed. However, if you’re unsure about what you want to do, you can always book once on-board the ship. Once you have received your cruise reference number you can begin booking all the excursions you wish – it really is that easy! Book all your excursions RIGHT HERE!

If you’re undecided about what excursions you want to go on, or if you even think you don’t want to go on any excursions, you will have the opportunity to book on-board the ship when cruising with most cruise lines.

Booking on-board the ship

If you hear about an excursion other passengers are going on, or if you change your mind and find an excursion that’s right for you, the best place to go is the reception desk and they will point you in the right direction. Certain ships have travel shops which are dedicated to booking excursions, whereas on others you can book at reception. Costs of excursions booked on-board will be added to your on-board account and you can pay this off at the end of your cruise. You can read more about on-board accounts here.

How much do excursions usually cost?

In many cases shore excursions come at an additional cost, ranging from £15 to £100 – or possibly even above depending on the activity. You can read more about pricing based on certain excursions here.

Are excursions suitable for all ages?

Because there are so many families cruising nowadays, many shore excursions are family friendly and are open for all ages. However, some cruise lines and excursion companies do offer trips for adults only (aged 18 and above).
