Shore Excursions Have Just Become More Valuable

Cruise vacations may be advertised as all inclusive, but we all know that the amount that you pay for your cruise does not really cover everything that you want or need. For instance, incidentals such as tips, any type of beverage or transportation to and from the cruise ship can take a lot of cash out of your pocket. One of the most expensive incidental is the shore excursion, or the things that you like to do while you are on shore. However, there is a new service that will allow you to save on tours that the cruise line does not offer.

Cruise vacations

Viator Shore Excursions is a new company, but it is going to offer over five hundred shore excursions in over eighty of the most popular travel destinations in the world. This will also include service to places such as Monaco, Mykonos or even Juneau.

According to the company’s CEO and President, Barrie Seidenberg, this service leverages the independent shore excursion bookings on The company is using technology to produce the best experience for each traveller. This will give them direct access to the most sought after regional excursions, which allows them to make the best travel decisions based upon their budget and schedule.

Cruise line excursions are usually considered to be safer, but they are also more expensive than independent ones. Many of these companies are usually the same that supply service for the cruise lines. Viator has a new website that is available for you to book your own shore excursions. You will discover that you can save up to sixty percent on many of same excursions that are offered by the cruise lines.

According to Seidenberg, cruise passengers have not had any other choices other than what the cruise lines offered. Many times they are too expensive and usually overbooked. But there are other more advantageous options with Viator.
