Guided/free time- This is not important that you will find all shore excursions tours guided. Yes, some cruise lines organize guided tours to their clients. But, many of them give a limited free time to the clients, in which they can go anywhere. They can take their own decisions, which place they want to explore, etc. They don’t need to follow any instructions and guidelines. The shore excursion gives two options to choose. First, you want to visit many different places in a small time. And second, you want to spend your whole time to visit a single place in depth. Yes, highlights tours can give you to visit multiple places in a small time. But, exploring a popular place in depth is also an amazing and pleasing experience.
