explore on your own??
Once you arrive at each port, is there easy access to points of interest without taking a shore excursion. Are there cabs at each port to take you around? Excurions get kind of expensive and I have visions of getting off the ship and not being able to get around. Any advice?

It will depend on the port. Most are easy to get around in, grab a cab, etc. Just always be careful with the time, you don't want to miss the boat.

Do some research on each port and see what interets you.

What ports are you going to visit? Due to security concerns in some ports you have to walk a long way before you get to the cabs. Sometimes if you have a cab or tour prearranged they can get into the secure area. I know that in Hilo there was a long walk to get to cabs. In Juneau they were right by the gangway.

so much depends upon the island, some are very safe to explore on your own, some not so.
