Make the most of your time ashore
When you arrive in port you’ll want to be able to enjoy every second of your time ashore. That’s why we have a team of dedicated destination experts who work closely with local tour operators to bring you an exciting selection of
excursions at each port of call. All of the tours follow tried, tested and well-researched itineraries that start as soon as you step off the ship.
Your choice of tours
Shore excursions give you the opportunity to see places you have always dreamt of and to try things you have never done before. You can choose from a wide range of tours to suit all ages, interests and abilities, from leisurely
sightseeing tours, to action packed activities, or lazy days on the beach. Tours vary in length too so you can opt for a brief introductory tour or an in-depth full day’s exploration.
Value for money
With entrance fees, transportation, English speaking guides, lunch and refreshments (where advertised) all included, a shore excursion provides excellent value for money. On many of the excursions, you’ll also benefit fr om not having to queue at attractions and landmarks, allowing you even more time to see the destination.
By booking excursions through P&O Cruises, you’ll be able to budget properly for your days ashore, especially as everything is charged in Pounds Sterling. In addition, by reserving your shore excursion before your cruise, you can secure your place on the tours you want. Once you have booked your cruise you can reserve your shore excursions online at www.pocruises.co.uk and click on ‘cruise personaliser’.
Peace of mind
Excursions offer you a safe and secure way of exploring ashore. We ensure all our shore excursion providers have insurance and that they have and adhere to their own safety management systems. If an excursion is delayed, the ship will not depart without you, so you won’t need to spend your day clock watching, or worrying about the traffic. Also, if there’s any reason why we have to make a last minute change to the cruise itinerary, you can rest assured that we’ll offer a range of alternatives.
At P&O Cruises we want you to get the most from your time ashore and we have planned our optional shore excursions so they offer the very best of each destination we visit. However, if you wish to explore independently you’ll find that in most instances you’ll be within walking distance of the main sights or public transportation will be available. And of course a limited number of free shuttle buses will be provided if local services are restricted due to where your ship has berthed.
