I have never been on the Black Prince but I am sure it is pretty universal on all ships that you are welcome to stay on board when in port. We did this a few times, sometimes getting off the boat, having a wander around the town and then popping back or not getting off a all. For us we enjoyed the extra space and peace you get when most people are off the boat. It is a chance to relax as excursion days can be exhausting. The shops were not open but the bars and restaurents were. Often the veiw from the boat is lovely and it gives you chance to fully explore all the facilities. We plan to treat ourselves to a spa day this time.

I have cruised many times on this ship and would confirm that there is no pressure to get off the ship at any port of call. Many people thoroughly enjoy having "their" ship virtually to themselves on port days. There are normally some activities on these days too and, of course, the restaurants are fully operational. I hope you have a lovely cruise.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
