    When do they charge for the on-shore excursions? We are at 75 days pre-departure, so I want to book our 1st choice options but also want some flexibility. Can we make last minute changes without paying for canceled plans?

    Hi Susan,

    The payment for Port Adventures is charged to your shipboard account once you board.  For most excursions, you can cancel without penalty up to three days prior to sail date.  If it is a popular excursion that has a wait list, there are reports of being able to change/cancel once onboard without penalty since they are able to fill the slot.  This isn't guaranteed though, so if you are certain you want to cancel - do it before you sail, otherwise be prepared to keep the reservation if they don't offer a refund onboard.

    Good luck!
