I figured I'd turn to all you cruise professionals.
I'm booked on Carnival Destiny for the Southern Caribbean cruise leaving San Juan on this coming December 11th. I just visited the 'my reservation' section on Carnival.com and see that I can now add/purchase my excursions. I had been so excited about the excursions as for the past 5 months or so I have been pouring over all the excursions that Carnival says it offers for each port listed on their website. I had my list all picked out and ready to book only to find that last night when I went to book/purchase not one of my selections are being offered. This is a big disappointment to me as all I'd mostly selected were scenic tours of the various islands. I find it strange that none are being offered (except for St. Thomas...they are offering a few island/scenic tours). This is my first time booking excursions online. Does this really mean that Destiny isn't offering any type of traditional scenic tours of Aruba, Barbados, or Dominica (I think one of them tied in some form of tour with a 4 x 4 adventure)? Or are scenic/island tours going to be something we have to or can book on the ship?
Have you guys used or what local tour companies have you guys used for Aruba, Barbados, and Dominca? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
