Your video was very educational and excellent for those who are new to cruising.

Not all cruise lines send a representative on the cruise.

A benefit of booking through the cruise line is that it meets safety standards of the cruise line.

Another benefit is if you don't make it to port your excursion will be refunded to you.

Benefit of booking your own is often you can change things up.

Thank you again for sharing the video. Like your other videos this is terrific.
