Some Notes for Shore Excursions

1. All the land excursions arranged by the cruiser are in groups escorted by ship guide and guide from the excursion site. No private tours for this part.

2. The OPTIONAL shore excursions are prepared based on the number of visitors who want to go. You can visit if there are 30 or more people interested (the number of visitors may be adjusted based on the real situation). You have the final decision where to go or not on your own. If yes, tell the reception desk who would register for you and receive your pay in site. The ARRANGED shore excursions are included in your quotation, so you could visit the sites without extra charge. However, if you do not visit the sites, the fees of arranged shore excursion sites are not refunded. If you do not visit the shore excursions, you could stay on the ship to enjoy some leisure time. And for your safety, you are not allowed to leave your ship on your own.

3. As for the optional shore excursions, you could choose to go it or not totally based on your interests and likes. There is no need to book the optional excursions in advance. If you want to go, please tell the front desk when getting onboard.

4. You could read the overall and detailed shore excursion information on the page of TRAVEL GUIDE.
