Is it just me or is anyone else having trouble booking shore excursions online My deposit was made over a week ago, and I went to book my excursions and its not listing all the cities and excursions available.

I'm not sure about Carnival, but I know on Princess you can't book excursions until about 4 months out; you look to be about 10 months out.

f-mattox is correct, it is too early for your cruise tours to be opened for booking.

Yes, the booking window opens 120 days from the sail date with Carnival, or approx 4 months as f-mattox stated about Princess.

We sail in 140 days and the excursions started to show up about 3 weeks ago. They showed for one port at a time and only a select few. Now all have showed up with the exception of our last port.

Hi bigelow, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

They always release them earlier than the given rule of thumb for booking. Are you able to book any of them yet? Thanks.

Welcome aboard,

Yes we booked for 2 out of three ports.

That's great you were able to book them earlier than the 120 days. Now that, doesn't always happen. Even though they release them prior to the 120 days, sometimes you can't book them out side of that window.
