Would like advice on booking shore excursions. To pre book or not? Though as they are expensive we dont want to make a mistake but had thought to do a trip by coach into Bordeaux as I gather the ship stops at Le Verdon which I think? is some distance. Think La Coruna/St Peter Port we could do ourselves & metro in Bilbao ?
Will be grateful for any help or other info you think useful.
On Princess, I would prebook whatever you are fairly confident that you want to take. This guarantees your place on the excursion, and there's absolutely no "down side" whatsoever. Unlike other lines, Princess charges prebooked excursions to your shipboard account so you don't pay for them until the end of the cruise. Also, you can cancel a prebooked excursion and receive full credit for its price right up to the booking deadline for the respective port of call.
