Angel, I admire your courage but I have to disagree with your decision. Yes, I have taken excursions in numerous ports without being sanctioned by the cruise line. I have had positive and negative experiences in doing so. If you are new to cruising or simply new to a particular port, it is very wise to book an excursion through the cruise line. You are guaranteed re-embarkation. If you don't think that is important, I can show you a $500 cancelled check in Rome where I made a bad decision my first trip to Europe. Until you are comfortable with a destination, book an excursion that will give you satisfaction as well as peace of mind.
