We're sailing in January and of course, like everyone else, we're worried about the weather. This is my kids first time out of the country, so I know they will want to get off the ship and see what it's like. I've thought of doing the fort excursion but I am wondering if it's worth the $41 pp price. Can I just take a taxi to the fort and enjoy it that way? What is so special about the excursion itself? Are you primarily paying for the peace of mind of staying with a group? TIA!!
