Excursion pick up times

Is there anywhere that lists the times excursions are picked up and are dropped off? I checked DCL's website and they give how long they are but not what times. I'm trying to decide on excursions and trying to see if I can fit two of them at certain ports. Thanks in advance.

You won't see time on the excursion times until you are actually doing your excursion bookings.

Boo! That really puts a damper on my planning. I was hoping to have it all figured out by the 90 day mark. Oh well thanks for the info.

You will be fine. We had 2.5 weeks to plan ours and it was one of the best trips of my life.

To the OP, check out navigators posted online to give you an idea of the times. They will be listed there. It is usually pretty tricky to book two excursions in the same port through DCL. They want to allow extra time in case your first group is delayed returning to the ship.

Good idea. Thanks. I was thinking of the under 2 flags tour and the half day beach bash at St. Maartens. Just trying to get the most of our time. Besides hubby isn't big on an entire beach day but I love the beach. So I thought the best of both worlds.

It depends on your Castaway Club status.

Concierge/Platinum CC members - 120 days out
Gold CC members - 105 days out
Silver CC members - 90 days out
First time cruisers - 75 days out

it is tricky--I know I tried!!!!

Yes it is tricky to try and book 2 tours through DCL--I tried!!!

we wanted to do the island tour and the ducks boat ride on GC but when I

was going through the booking that the times didnt work out

I was figuring it would work since both tours were only about 1.5 hrs

oh well--the island tour won out

we did the under 2 flags tour on St Maatrin and really liked it--just long enough to really get the feeling of things and we were in a nice AC tour bus

have fun planning your tours thats part of the fun!!!

I'm glad to see you enjoyed the 2 flags tour. I've heard bad reviews on it. Mostly about it being boring, but its just DH & I no kids so it seems like a nice way to get an overview of the island.

We did the under 2 flags tour. There really isn't much to see, but I think it was nice for a quick overview of the whole island.

So would it be worth the money? I know you stop at Marigot I think. Are there photo ops at other parts or its just straight through on the bus?

No, we had several photo stops on our tour. Sorry, I can't think of them all right now. I'll look it up and get back.

Yes, I think it was worth it. Just be aware that some people feel it's boring. I didn't.

That's good. I like the thought of being able to take pics of the island. Like I said earlier I like it as an overview of the island and besides it says its 3 hours that seems doable. Thanks for your feedback.
