Default "In Transit" Shore Excursions?

What does it mean when a cruise line advertises cruise excursions as "in transit"? I am looking at land excursions for Puerto Rico and it is a disembarkation port. All of the excursions state "in transit". Thank you!

Sounds like these excurstions may be post-cruise tours that end at the airport. It is the only thing I can think of, since it is the end of the cruise.

I believe this term, in transit, is for passengers remaining on the ship for another sailing...back to backs sailings.

In Transit is a term often used by customs and immigration. In this case, for those on back to back excursions it may mean that they are considered "in transit" and not arriving in the country so they do not have to go through US customs and immigration during their tour.

Not at all sure on this.
