Exclamation How to reserve shore excursions?

Hello I was wondering how do we reserve shore excursions? Like can we reserve and pay online or do we reserve online and pay at the place? Also, where do I go to reserve for the on-shore excursions! Thank You!

You reserve online, and it's charged to your ship-board account.

To reserve, you go access your reservation on-line and follow the links from there.

As a first time cruiser your booking window for excursions opens at 75 days out. Midnight eastern time.

You will need to log into your reservation (after midnight) and the option to book excursions will be available there. Just click on it and select your excursions.

When you make your excursion reservation, you do not pay then. It will be charged to your onboard account the day your excursion happens. You can cancel any excursion reservations you make at any time up until 3 days before your cruise departs without penalty. After that, you will be charged for a cancelled booking, unless DCL can fill your spot on the ship.

What time after midnight? Also, what do you mean about onboard account? So it will be reserved and do I have to pay for the excursion later while on ship?

The window opens at midnight eastern time. You can access you reservation (online) at anytime after that, day or night, whatever works for you.

Onboard account - while you are on the ship, it is a cashless society. Everything you purchase will be charged to your KTTW card. That is your onboard account. If you have an excursion planned, say, for the 1st port you visit, on that day the cost of the excursion will be charged to your account.

You pay off your onboard account just like when you check out from a hotel, at the end of your stay.
