The more we cruise, the less excursions we book through the cruise line. I never found the Shore Excursion desks to be particularly helpful or knowledgeable on any ship. I check out what they're offering prior to cruising, then do my own research, check out CM and other cruise forums for passenger opinions. I've also booked through Shoretrips with great results. We only cruise the Caribbean so after 13 cruises we know where we feel comfortable just winging it. On our last 2 cruises, we only booked one excursion through the cruiseline, a couple privately and the rest were "spontaneous"-went ashore and let things happen
