Cruise Ship Ripoff

Cruise ship companies make a substantial profit by offering you on onshore excursions when you pull into a port. You must be careful when booking one of these excursions as you can easily get ripped off remember you are usually in a foreign country.

The best way to keep from getting ripped off is book your excursion while on the ship and make sure the cruise line company guarantees the excursion company to be reputable and able to fulfill their commitment.

If you are not satisfied with your onshore excursion complained to the cruise lines that booked the tour for you. You will generally will be successful when presenting your complaint just have all your facts right what was promised and what was actually give on the tour. You will probably be given a full refund and even some on board credits for your troubles. Cruise lines do not want to have bad publicity over a onshore excursion.

It is not advisable to book a tour once you have arrived at your destination as they are many unscrupulous tour operators just waiting for you in the ports. The cruise line also has no control over these vendors. So enjoy your cruise and book everything through the cruise lines.
