My family and I are going on the Caribbean Princess July 16. The web site said that you can book excursions online 120 days in advance. As of today, we are still unable to book our excursion, even though we are now within 90 days. I called Princess and they first put me on hold for a very long time and then came back and said that I should try in about two weeks. Anyone else have this problem?
I was told when I called Princess that I could only start booking excursions 60 days in advance. I actually kept looking every week and the week before the 60 days I was finally able to start booking. I would just check it once a week.
Before booking excursions from the cruise line check the internet for excursions. Unless you are going somewhere really exotic it is much less expensive not to book with the cruiselines. There are many companies on line with who you can book excursions in addition tt many ports there are excursion companies at the dock to sell you excursions. If you are going to the beach or snorkling you likely wont need an excursion at all. I dont know if princess does this but another cruise like actually charges people around $30.00 for an excursion to go to a free public beach and they dont even provide transportation
