A little advance planning may save
Start by price comparing these non-cruise line shore excursions.
Book a rental car ahead of time
This almost always is the least expensive method for a full day of sightseeing. The rental car company should pick you up at the ship. Be prepared to drive on the left. And to pay for the extra accident (CDW) insurance coverage. If something happens, you don't want to be delayed by legal hassles.
Book through local operators ahead of time
Want to dive with Captain Don's Habitat on Bonaire? Arrange it beforehand. You can book almost any activity, anywhere, well in advance.
Talk to the ship's crew about where they go, what they see when they're in a particular port. They visit these places every week. They may come up with something you haven't thought of.
