Please note: If the excursion site is marked with "Upstream", it means only the upstream cruise ships go to the site. If the excursion site is marked with "Downstream", it means only the downstream cruise ships go to the site. If there is no sign, it means both the upstream and downstream cruises take shore excursion there.
