Land Excursions only may be purchased during the land portion of your Alaska Cruisetour vacation. Restrictions Please note there are certain excursions that for safety reasons, age, weight and/or height restrictions apply.

Tour Availability Please note that not all excursions are available on all ships or during your Alaska Cruisetour. Excursion prices and itineraries are in effect at the time of printing and may be subject to change without notice. Scheduling of Shore Excursions When planning your Shore Excursions, please keep in mind the following: 1. Most morning excursions will meet in a lounge onboard the ship and most afternoon excursions depart from the pier. Final excursion departure and meeting locations will be provided directly onboard the ship. At the completion of the excursion, you will be returned to the pier unless you elect to leave the excursion en route. In that case, it will be your responsibility to secure transportation back to the pier. Guests should also be mindful that in ports where the ship lies at anchor, excursions may commence from dockside, not the ship. Therefore, ample time should be allowed by guests for the tender trip to shore. 2. In most ports it is possible to participate in more than one excursion. When planning your day, it is advisable to allow at least one hour between your excursions. 3. All guests are to be aboard the ship no later than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled sailing time. The scheduling of all shore excursions conforms to this requirement. However, if you elect to leave an excursion en route, or go ashore on your own, it is your responsibility to return to the ship on time. 4. Kindly note that excursion times provided online may be earlier than the ship’s scheduled arrival at a port of call. The time listed may be in local time as provided by the excursion operator. The most accurate excursion departure time will be provided directly onboard the ship. Scheduling of Land Excursions When planning your Land Excursions, please keep in mind the following: 1. Most Land Excursions will meet in the hotel lobby of the designated overnight destination, unless otherwise indicated by your Tour Director during the Alaska Cruisetour. 2. Not all Land Excursions are offered on every Alaska Cruisetour itinerary. The Land Excursions are made available based on the destinations visited on the Alaska Cruisetour itinerary and the amount of “free time” available to each guest during the itinerary. The exact tours available on an itinerary will be noted while in the “PURCHASE / SHOP” mode of the website. 3. In some destinations it is possible to participate in more than one excursion. When planning your day, it is advisable to allow at least one hour between your excursions. 4. To avoid disappointment, it is recommended that you purchase Land Excursion tickets ahead of time on the website. If this is not possible, Land Excursion tickets can be purchased through your Tour Director once you begin the land portion of your Alaska Cruisetour. Refunds and Cancellations No refunds are made for failure to use all of the described services included in the excursion price. Cancellations by guests must be made prior to the closing deadline advised directly onboard the ship or during your Alaska Cruisetour.

It is the sole responsibility of the guest to obtain and have available when necessary the appropriate valid travel and health documents such as passports, visas, vaccination certificates, etc., that are necessary for air travel, disembarkation at the various ports of call and re-entry into the appropriate country of origin.
