Going ashore

Cruise tours and shore excursions

Iconic sights, awe-inspiring scenery, and compelling local cultures - each port of call is brimming with exciting possibilities. To help you experience the very best from your destinations, P&O Cruises offers a diverse selection of excursions ashore, from leisurely sightseeing to exciting activities.

Shore excursions are created by a team of destination experts who work closely with carefully selected, reliable local operators and are designed to suit all ages, interests and abilities. Once you’ve booked your holiday, you’ll be able to browse through excursions tailored to your specific cruise and purchase your tours in advance through Cruise Personaliser.

Once you log in to your booking, you will also be able to see more shore excursion images and watch a selection of tour videos to bring your tours alive.

We’re a shore thing

Exclusively P&O Cruises
There’s just one pick up point (which is usually at the bottom of the gangway) and you’ll only ever be joined by your fellow sailing companions. You’ll also have an English-speaking, expert local guide on hand.

Safe and sound
It’s a safe and secure way to explore – we ensure that every shore excursion operator has a safety management system and is insured by a reputable insurance company.

Timely tours
Leave the clockwatching to us. We’ll make sure your tour fits around the hours you’re in port and we’ll get you back to the ship in time for Sail Away celebrations.

No hidden extras
There’s no additional charge for transfers and, where stated, entrance fees are included. Our tour descriptions will also highlight whether lunch or refreshments are provided.

Secure your place
A number of tours are firm favourites and often sell out quickly. If there’s something that catches your eye, book now and you’ve secured your spot.

Expert advice
If you’d rather book on board, you can seek expert opinion from our shore excursion specialists – just pop along to the Shore Excursions Desk. There are also informative port talks and, by booking with P&O Cruises, we’ll be on hand to answer any questions you might have about your tours, even when you’re in the middle of the ocean.

Been there, done that?
We’re always adding new tours so even if you’re making a return visit, there’ll be something new for you to enjoy.

Excellent value for money

Half day shore excursions range from £25.00 to £60.00 per person. Full day tours range from £50.00 to £140.00 per person. The prices depend on the type of excursion you take and whether it includes lunch or refreshments.
