If you google 'ports of call cruise boards' the first link should take you to a most excellent site full of info.

How about all of them, or you could go ashore and get them all half price from the local companies, bearing in mind the ships tours are run by local companies, but they put a 100% mark up on them, believe me, im talking from experience. you can even get buses with other cruise passengers and share the total cost.

This is a decision you have to make yourself. We have no idea whether you are active or sedentary, what you like doing, seeing or where your interests lie. Do your homework and read about what is on offer from the ship then look at the ports of call tourist sites on the net and make a decision as to what suits you and if you are adventurous do it yourself. I know that you will get people saying "be sure you don't miss the ship" but you aren't going to are you because you will allow enough time. Regards. ... Neil.

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
