Does anyone know if you have the excursion credit, could this be used toward the paid tour since you book with the ShorEX team?

I asked this in another thread just today and was told no (though a more optimistic person suggested asking at guest services or something but probably no).

Using a SHORE Excursion credit for payment of the BST is sort of like an oxymoron - that is a shore excursion
being used to pay for an onboard tour.
Oh you can try but expect to have the roll eyes treatment - did he just say what I thought he said !

Regarding a Platinum guest taking cabin mates on the BST - the stock answer is No - but what goes on on the
ship stays on the ship - certainly if there are few unfilled slots on the BST it makes sense to fill them with happy
satisfied impressed passengers.

Sorry. I thought that since you booked it at the SHORE excursion desk and the tour was given by SHORE excursion members that maybe you could use the credits. Not quite sure why you have to be so condescending.

The best tour is when you are in a suite and have an incredible concierge like Hanno.

Yeah, huh, well anyway, I did mention how the one person suggested that you could still ask because, hey, it never hurts to ask. Worse that happens is they say no. I ended up not pursuing it as I decided not to take the tour that trip anyway. I mean, I figured it would be 'no' as well since it's not a 'shore excursion' but like you said, still an excursion sold at the 'shore excursion' desk. Can't hurt to ask if it'd just go unused anyway.
