Default Shore excursion prices

I know I should probably call my TA or Carnival direct, but does anyone know where else I can find prices for shore excursions in Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas?

Jeanette,
If you call Carnival they will mail or FAX a copy of all the excursions for every port that your cruise goes. It has a nice description and up dated prices. I have noticed that on some web sites( that have prices posted) the prices are terribly out dated. I'm glad that I called Carnival because I would have been shocked at the price difference. I have the name and extention # for a very helpful lady at Carnival. She can also answer any other questions you might have. Email me if you would like that info.
