Explore the Shore

Discover a world of adventure in every port of call.

A helicopter flight over azure waters and evergreen mountains for unrivaled views of an ancient volcano. Strolling among the ruins of a lost city long hidden in the jungle. A private cooking class with an acclaimed local chef. Royal Caribbean’s Shore Excursions transform cruise vacations with experiences that memories—and selfies—are made of.

From sightseeing to snorkeling, boating to biking, hiking to history tours, the options are nearly as endless as the horizon. And now it’s easier to find the tours and activities that suit your interests and style. Shore Excursions are organized into three categories: Active Adventures, Culture and Sights, and Family Connections.

Active Adventures
Looking for an adventure on land or at sea? Try zip-lining through the mountains of St. Thomas, snorkeling in the waters off Cozumel, an off-road safari in Bonaire, sailing away in St. Maarten, or a relaxing Cayman beach break. Easygoing or high energy, that’s up to you; Active Adventures has something for everyone, from the thrill seekers to the most carefree cruisers.

Culture and Sights
Calling all history buffs and culture mavens: Spend time with locals who share stories and traditions that will enrich your understanding of people and places. There are classic sightseeing tours, guided museum visits, and entertaining performances. Check out the Danish heritage of St. Croix, the Spanish-built fortresses of Old San Juan, ghosts and gravestones in Key West, the historic Mayan ruins of the Yucatán, or a Bèlè performance—an African-rooted tradition unique to Martinique.

Family Connections
Family fun is what these excursions are all about. Make memories as you share experiences that focus on nature, wildlife, or island culture. These tours and activities are built for bonding and for all ages—from kids and teens to the parents, and grandparents, too. Think dolphin encounters in the Bahamas, visiting the caves of Curaçao, splashing around an Aruban aqua park, and touring an historic Jamaican estate where you can help plant a fruit tree.
