Just my opinion, unless this is your first cruise or you are looking at very lengthy excursions it is always better to schedule tours, privately. You will save money and have smaller, more personalized groups. The best way to do this: go to ports a call on this or CC board and check to see who is doing what. Sometimes you can even get a group from the ship together. Of course the other option is to just wait til you get off the ship and set something up then. We have done it all ways. Again, if the tour is very long, to protect yourselves from being left behind it is better to use the cruiselines excursion desk. NMnita
