I always prebook my excursions. That being said, I rarely if ever, use the cruise ship's excursions. I do some research and find a local tour operator. I find self made folks that are in business for themselves, and usually save a bunch of money!
Don't let the cruise lines scare tactics get to you. These private companies WILL get you back on board on time. Let's face it, if they didn't, they'd get bad reviews, and wouldln't be in business long!
