We have either done ships tours, with only a couple of times prebooking, and finding something at the dock. A few times when we have booked at teh dock we have found that others that booked the same tour thruthe ship we had a better time and it was less money. If we are interested in a tour that is a full day we always book thru the ship. And of course there are times when we have not booked any tour just gotten a taxi and had them take us were we wanted.
