Default Excursions with kids??

We are cruising on the norwegian gem in october. our ports are san juan, st thomas, st maarten and dominican republic. I need recommendations for ideas when we are in the ports. should we always book an excursion or explore on our own? I want to enjoy the beaches, but the excursions only give you about 2 hrs at the beaches. any suggestions welcome. my children are 6 and 9.

Your children are pretty young. I would recommend going with a ship-provided tour simply because they take care of all details. With young children you do not want to forget an essential you possibly did not think about.

On a ship's tour there will be guides for additional eyes. They will have the boats and know where the safe and unsafe areas may be.

Don't take chances.
