Shore ExcursionsWhat are Shore Excursions?

Shore Excursions are, quite simply, tours taken away from the cruise ship during stops in Ports of Call.  These Excursions are as much a part of the cruise experience as the ship itself.  There are a number of ways to truly enjoy a destination, explore, sightsee or visit historical landmarks, and hiring a private guide or going with a group is the best!

Why should I book my Shore Excursion with TravelPlex?

We know that your time in port is one of the most important parts of your vacation, so we take our commitment to deliver great shore excursions very seriously. We carefully select only the best tour operators in each port, and, because we are not trying to reserve excursions for thousands of people at a time, in many cases we are able to choose tour providers who carry much smaller groups of travelers on more intimate, personalized experiences. We know that it can be confusing to choose the best tour in each port and we stand behind the tours we deliver.
