If you go to the Celebrity Cruises web-site and follow the signs to excursions you can see all of the tours listed and their prices. You can book them if you wish and often the price is high but by looking you can pick out the ones that you can afford or feel that you must or ought to do. In the other ports you can either stay on board or go ashore on your own or with people the you meet an the ship and this way the costs of sightseeing can be greatly reduced…….Nei.
Be aware every taxi/van driver in every port knows all the cruise excursions by heart, so do your research on the various trips & then negotiate, negotiate, negotiate!We work on, if a cruise tour costs for eg 100Euro per person, work on about 120/150Euro BETWEEN 4 sharing a cab/van. That's been our rule of thumb for the last fifty cruises. Hope it helps Regard.
Thank you to Ida & Neil Down of Southhampton for their reply concerning excursions on MV Galaxy, have acted as you suggested, printed offered trips and we are thinking about it. This is our first Cruise other than Nile your help is appreciated. Given your experience do you recommend the Company Excursions or go it alone or with others? Martin & Sue Scott, Bristol.
