Can I customize my experience?

Premium Excursions give you an opportunity to immerse yourself more deeply into a specific destination or interest. Examples of Premium Excursions may include a swamp tour, southern plantation tour, golf, cooking experience and more. Book these in advance with your travel agent to ensure your spot on these special opportunities.
Another way to customize your experience is to spend more time before and after the cruise in city of embarkation or debarkation. City Stays include accommodations, meals, transportation, and activities.
