  • For both Ambassador Cruise Lines and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, shore excursions will be available via the cruise lines directly. You can view your booking in your account sections of their websites, where you can choose and pay for your shore excursions prior to sailing. 

    Shore Excursions are generally available to view and booked 8 weeks before sailing.
