Default I NEED HELP on sold out excursion!!!!

We waited til the week before the cruise to book our excursion and it is "Sold out".

We were wanting to do the 5star taimi catamaran/turtle excursion At barbados. Do you know if NCL only sell so many of these online and save spots for people on board to book?

Also there was another turtle tour that we tried to book when that one said sold out but it's been 3days and haven't heard back in the email. Whats the cut off? We are calling them today.

BUT...anyone have any other suggestions. My DH is leary of doing anything on our own.

I would go online and try to book a similar tour privately. You may surprise yourself and save a few bucks besides. Barbedos should be an easy place to find a private driver to take you where you need to go.

Shoretrips dot com has this same sort of excursion available in Barbados for $78. I have booked with them in the past, however my excursion was cancelled due to damage to the yacht we were going on. I have to say they went out of their way to contact me to let me know by email, voicemail and cell phone, as quickly as possible that it had been cancelled. Which is more than I can say when our NCL excursion was cancelled more than a month in advance, they never called anyone to notify them. They issued an immediate refund of my deposit as well.

Hi kimbo,

Go to the Shore Excursion Desk ASAP after you board (immediately!). They usually hold some spaces on tours for those who don't have the ability to book online.

Good luck and have a wonderful cruise!

You can go to the ports a call section of this or CC forum and see what is recommended or just google Barbados for ideas. If you don't find anything that interests you do like Fern said, go to the excursion desk the minute you get on the ship. If none of this works, when you get to Barbados there will be lots of tour companies just waiting to help you find the tour you want. Just make sure you go with a group of at least four. BTW, Barbados is one of our favorite islands. There is so much to see and do.

Have a great cruise
