Q. Can I take a Shore Experience/Excursion on an embarkation / disembarkation day?

Booking Shore Experiences

Shore experiences can be booked prior to your cruise via the Cruise Personaliser or My P&O Cruises. All experiences available to you will be displayed here.

You may also book shore experiences once on board, subject to availability.


Shore Experiences on an Embarkation / Disembarkation Day

We do not recommend that passengers take a shore experience on embarkation/disembarkation day due to time constraints and onward travel arrangements.

You may notice on Cruise Personaliser or My P&O Cruises that a shore experience is offered in a port of call where the ship remains overnight or for two/more days, these are offered to those passengers who are taking the longer cruise where the choice of 7/14 nights was available (for example, World Cruises or 7/14 night cruises on Oceana).  

If you wish to take a shore experience on embarkation/disembarkation day then we strongly advise you ensure that the tour times do not clash with your travel arrangements.

Any shore experiences offered on embarkation/disembarkation day will be shown via the Cruise Personaliser or My P&O Cruises where available.

Occasionally these are arranged on disembarkation day and include a transfer to the airport, however you should still ensure that this fits with your check in or flight time.  

If you wish to arrange a private tour for your final day, then it may be possible to arrange this on board (taxi to a chosen destination ) however, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the process involving taking luggage off the ship.
