If you know exactly what you want to do, I would ask someone at the pursers desk ,when you board, how soon can you book your activity's for the ports of call.

We've always done ours the day before, after breakfast. On the Conquest, we booked ours in our cabin. That was nice, no lines to stand in.

At the shore excursion desk there will be a sign that will tell you when they open. If you want to make sure you get the tour of your choice then be there. You can also book from the TV on many ships but I always prefer to waste a little time and stand at the counter to make sure they get my choices.

24 cruises and counting!

I booked mine as soon as I got to my room and got what I wanted.

We did ours as soon as we got to our room. It was VERY easy and I recommend doing that to anyone. One reason is because they sometimes sell out very fast and if you do it right away, you can go have fun and not worry about anymore.

We booked ours the first night when we were waiting to go into the dining room.
