Default Re: Shore Excursions can you book beore cruise is paid in fu

What cruise line? I only know about Carnival. If you are fully deposited, you can book shore excursions 180 days out. BUT, it is a new system, and not all excursions are listed 180 days out. I'm sailing in a few weeks, and was only able to book a particular excursion in Jamaica last month. Some excursions were listed initially, and then, as the weeks passed, more and more were added.

Some of the cruiselines allow you to pre-book excursions 60 days prior to the cruise, and of course by that time your final payment has been made..

most cruiselines don't officially open their booking for shore excursions until 30-60 days
prior to sailing. Final payements on most lines are due 90 days prior to sailing. My TA explained to me that "technically" the cruise is not scheduled until that final payement day has come and gone.

This would depend on the cruise line you are sailing. With most you need a booking number to access the shore excursions.
