Q. Why can I not book shore excursions online?

Shore Excursions are usually available to pre purchase via Cruise Personaliser approximately 12 weeks prior to sailing. 

We make every effort to ensure your excursions are available at this time. In some circumstances, excursions may not be available at this time; if this is the case, please keep checking Cruise Personaliser every few days to ensure that you do not miss out. 

Shore excursions that are available on your cruise will be shown in your Cruise Personaliser. There may be occasions where a shore excursion may be available on your embarkation and disembarkation day however, we would urge you to consider your onward travel arrangements before booking such an excursion.

You may pre purchase shore excursions up to 3 days prior to the cruise departure date. Within 3 days of the cruise you will be able to join a waitlist. Once on board, if your selected shore excursion has availability, tickets will be delivered to your cabin and charges applied to your on board account.
