Not going on excursions

Recommended Posts

This will be my first cruise along with others in my party, and we have decided NOT to do any excursions. We our doing 4 night western caribbean (Key West and Cozumel). We want to take everything in. Do you think we will be board??:)




No, I don't think you will be BORED once you are onBOARD! ; )


I do suggest however that you get off the ship in each port, regardless of whether you do ship excursions or not; just to get a taste of the places that you visit.

I did not go on one excursion on my first two cruises. Mexico and Alaska.

We got off at each port and did our own thing.

We were busy, tired and glad to get back on the ship.


Our next cruise to the Caribbean I'm booking more excursions because I'm taking my son and I want him to see more of the country we are in.


At any port you will find lots of vendors and you can shop till you drop.

There will be all kinds of touristy things to do.

What we like to do in port is find the out of the way places that the locals go. YOu can meet some great people and they will steer you in the right direction in their town.

Last summer we booked an excersion for one port and "winged it" in the other ports. We were definately not bored! We are doing the same thing this year. We have an excersion booked at only one port. We will do our own thing in the other ports. It worked well for us, so why change! :D The main thing is to have fun......

If you mean that you're going to stay on the ship...you can have a great time.


I wouldn't miss a day in Cozumel for anything. You'd be missing out on a lot.


If you plan on getting off the ship and wandering on your own, then GO FOR IT!! You'll love it!! :D


Enjoy your first cruise. :)
