Included sightseeing tours

New for 2021

Our cruises are better value with our new range of included excursions

Our new season of cruises for 2021 are even better value, thanks to a number of included excursions on every cruise! Designed to give you a real flavour of what each port has to offer, up to six excursions are included, depending on the length of your chosen cruise.

This range of sightseeing tours is included on all new cruises aboard Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure.

Plus, you can also take advantage of our exciting Explore Ashore service.

Here are just a few examples of our fantastic included sightseeing tours for cruises departing from April to December 2021.

Norway excursions

Enjoy included experiences in summer and winter 2021. These cruises include a sightseeing introduction to both Bergen and Stavanger, or in the wintertime, a visit to the North Cape Visitor Centre from Honningsvåg.

Iceland & Greenland excursions

Experience stunning natural wonders at the top of the world. In Iceland we include a coach tour of Reykjavik and visit to the Godafoss Waterfall. And in Greenland, a tour of the unique capital of Nuuk.

The Baltic

Look forward to a number of included sightseeing tours in this beautiful part of Northern Europe. Tour St Petersburg and see the Cathedral on Spilled Blood. Also drive around Helsinki including stops at Senate Square and Sibelius Park, and discover Oslo including a visit to Vigeland Sculpture Park.

The Mediterranean

Our sunshine cruises to the Med in 2021 include a range of fantastic excursions. Tour and explore the historic city of Malaga, discover the capital of Malta and charming fishing town of Marsaxlokk, see the mountains and beaches of Cagliari, step back in time to ancient Salerno in Italy with an expert guide, and many more.

British Isles & Ireland

Delve into the fascinating history of our own islands, with a range of included excursions. These include city tours of Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin, and a countryside escape to scenic Northumbria, including a visit to the iconic Angel of the North sculpture.

USA & Canada

You won’t want to miss our new included city tour of New York. This reveals the highlights of the Big Apple, from Times Square and 5th Avenue to the Brooklyn Bridge. Or cruise to Canada and enjoy an included visit to historic Sydney on Cape Breton Island.

Our inspiring excursion programme

Our excursion programme will be available to book ahead of your cruise. From outstanding natural wonders and historic cities to ancient ruins and beautiful gardens, our shore excursion programme has been designed to suit a variety of tastes.

We try to combine active excursions such as trekking, with less strenuous museum visits or city tours, and at most ports we also include a panoramic coach tour so you can see the sights while you sit back and relax.

We'll post a booklet to you a few weeks before you sail, so you can read about the excursions available during your cruise. Many guests like to book them in advance, especially as some popular tours can sell out.

To help you choose the most suitable excursions for you, we give each one a brief description and a walking grade based on the amount of walking, steps or type of terrain involved.

And once you're on board, the team are always on hand to help with your bookings or any other questions about the content of your chosen tours.

Explore Ashore

We also offer bespoke tours and experiences to help you plan and organise the time you spend exploring off the ship – tailored exactly how you want it.
