Booking shore excursions
 
My family members who have never cruised are asking me how far in advamce of our upcoming cruise they should book shore excursions .

I usually do so 2 months prior .Is that the norm ?

LF,
YEs, that sounds about right, they usually open up the pre-booking online about 2 months out, after final payment is made. You can, in the meantime look through all them and try to figure out what to do in each port... What islands are you going to be visiting?

Which itininerary are you doing? Which Ports of call?

Booking that early, means you only want to book excursions with the ship, which many seasoned Caribbean cruisers pass on.

These ports of call are just too easy to book off the ship, unless it's something so popular, you just don't want to take the chance to lose.

One good example is what the ships charge for the Atlantis excursion in Nassau. With a large family for example, booking the Comfort suites next door to Atlantis,and getting priviledges, is more affordable.

Doing morning excursions off the ship, usually asuages "the ship will leave without me factor."

2 months in advance is the right way to do it! Many tours sometimes get fully booked a month in advance in high season.
