On Shore with Carnival

Carnival offers an abundance of shore excursions at each port. What's more, Carnival's Shore Excursion search allows you to select your shoreside activities using customized filters that sort by price, duration, activity level and expedition type. Typical shore excursions might include a submarine dive in Aruba, a glacier tour in Alaska or a dolphin encounter in the Cayman Islands. Touring ancient sites and historical structures or enjoying wine tastings and culinary adventures are just a handful of other shore excursions offered. Keep in mind that the deadline for booking shore excursions online is one day prior to departure, and available excursions vary by itinerary.

Note: Some excursions have age, health, weight and/or height restrictions, depending on the activity level. If you need to cancel an excursion booked online and do so 24 hours or more before the cruise departure date, you will receive a full refund posted to the credit card used for purchase. Cancellations made on board 24 hours or more before tours are scheduled to start will be refunded to your onboard account. However, onboard cancellations are subject to a 25% cancellation charge. For cancellations or changes after the cutoff window, you will not receive a refund and must consult the shore excursion manager on board. For more information, visit Carnival's website.
