I don't think it is possible to do this particular tour independently.
Will have to look for this one when the excursions become available. I'm assuming that'll be sometime late next year for a May 2014 cruise??

I'm not sure how the TA is doing the tours - i.e. can we pick to join per port or is it a package and will she have stuff for each port? All I know is as long as there is wine involved, I will be happy!
