Shore excursions are a major part of any cruise, with your ship usually docking at several different ports during the course of the journey. Passengers will be offered a range of sightseeing trips and things to do on tours organized by their cruise operator and while passengers are always free to make their own arrangements, most will stick to the tours offered on board. However, there are several good reasons to be more independently minded and do your own thing on a shore excursion.
