Do you mean "Onshore trips" ? If so either through the official OV web-site, or by ringing their head office in Southampton or do what most people do and wait until you are onboard and choose there. Neil Dow.

You can either wait till you are on board, when you will be given a list of all the excursions and costs, or as Down, mentioned you could book before you go.
