So Much to Do
Many of today's itineraries can position you in an exciting port of call each
day of your itinerary, while others offer a mix between relaxing days at sea and
ports of call. Your Independent Vacation Specialist can provide you with a variety of
itineraries based upon your desired activity level during your vacation.
Many experienced cruisers look for itineraries with more time at sea, while
other travelers want a new port each day. Knowing what you want to do in
advance will assist your Independent Vacation Specialist in presenting you with the options
that meet your needs. Here's a summary of what type of activities
are available in port and at sea.
Activities in Port
When your ship arrives in port, you can choose to take a shore excursion in the port or go exploring on your own.
Since your time in port is limited, most cruise passengers choose to take shore excursions.
Although cruise lines offer shore excursions on-board, you can save
quite a bit by booking your excursions in advance through your Independent Vacation Specialist. Usually these excursions are being offered by the same tour
company that offers the excursions to the cruise line. There
are advantages in booking in advance. First, you are assured that you will
be able to take the tour in advance, which is something cruise lines don't
typically provide. Secondly, you get a big discount off the same
excursion when booked with your Independent Vacation Specialist in
Excursions include sightseeing of historical landmarks and points of
interest, sailing or fishing excursions, golf excursions,
and beach excursions. If your group would like to do a custom
excursion that is exclusive for your group, we can arrange that
too. Just let us know what you are looking to do and chances are
that we have contacts that can get it done.
Activities At Sea
Aboard a modern cruise ship, there's plenty to do for adults and
children. In fact, no other vacation meets the needs of multigenerational
vacation like a cruise. With a wide variety of activities and facilities
available to cruisers, you can do it all or nothing at all. Its all your
choice. Here's a sample of some activities that are available aboard some of
today's cruise ships:
