Default Shore Excursions

I have been thinking about whether or not it would be a good thing for cruise ships to add Segway shore excursions to their offerings in various ports. Of course, it wouldn't work on uneven surfaces like cobblestones. But their are many walking tours in cities and ports of call that involved paved areas. What do you think of the idea? I think it would be great for seniors who are ambulatory but not up to covering long distances.

Please define what Segway tours are. Thanks.

It refers to starting to run tours that include rental Segways for older passengers to use. See photo. They are available for rental and I am sure cruise ships and/or their agents could rent them.

I am sure you have seen them around. Brookstone's sells them. Some people use them in shopping malls.

I can just see cruise people - the older ones (maybe even the younger ones) - doing this and ending up breaking a bone or bones!

I wish they'd bring back the pedicabs they used to have in some ports ... now that was the way to handle those looooooooooooooooong piers.

there would be a great liability factor, most likely would have to sign a disclaimer, did i do that.

Not nearly as charming as the bicycle rickshaws (sp?)
