I would bet, that if we took a poll, most people who have cruised extensivley "USUALLY" book off ship, for run of the mill excursions.
The "ship won't leave me factor" is a consideration, but in the Caribbean say, for most excursions, you can walk off the ship and get the for less money, and share the costs, if you have a group . We usually do trips like this in the morning, so we really have never had to worry about missingthe ship...I
have seen people running up the gang plank though, and they were just doddling in town we heard....:)
Trip, with her book & tea!
