One hell of a way to find out that you don't like cruising! I would recommend slipping in a short one with Fred Olsen in the meantime just to be sure? There are a couple of 7/8 day ones going for under £400 at the moment! I don't really understand why you are asking such a question? The cruise itself must have cost well over £10000, and has over 30 ports of call, so why are you worried about how much shore excursions are going to cost? Why go to all these fantastic places in such an affluent style if you are worried about how much the ships excursions are going to cost? The cost of excursions depend on what they involve. Distance travelled, meals provided, time taken, enterence fees, etc, etc! I have paid as much as £100 per person for a full days trip to the pyramids in Egypt, and as little as £15 for a half day trip to a couple of viewpoints in Madeira, if that is any help? Happy cruising.

Agreed! If they can afford a world cruise, shore excursions do not come into the equation.

Some of these you can find on the Fred. Olsen website with an indication of the prices. About eight weeks before you sail you should be sent a booklet giving full details, including prices, of all the shore excursions. You can book prior to sailing by post, e-mail or fax if you wish. Alternatively, you may book on board. Popular excursions fill up quicky so it often pays to book early. I am going on the Singapore / Vancouver sector of this cruise.As a regular on Fred. Olsen's ships I am sure you will have a really enjoyable time. Bon voyage.

You are fantastically lucky or plain stupid to book a world cruise for the first ever cruise. You should have considered a shorter cruise first. Cruises are fabulous if you pick the right one. Best of british luck!
