Sometimes Royal Caribbean Cruise Excursions Do Get Canceled
Going on a cruise with Royal Caribbean is always an exciting adventure, but there's one thing you need to keep in mind - sometimes your excursions get canceled! It can be quite heartbreaking if you've been looking forward to something, so it's important to not get your heart set too strongly on any one excursion.
There are many reasons why Royal Caribbean may have to cancel your excursion, such as bad weather or technical issues. Our excursion to the Kennedy Space Center was canceled because a launch was happening that day. But don't worry - just because your excursion doesn't go as planned doesn't mean that your cruise has to be ruined. There's plenty of other things you can do in port. Sometimes you are able to book a new excursion like we did in Costa Maya.
The video below shows what happened when our snorkeling excursion was canceled because of rough waters.
It is important to make sure you have a back up plan in case this happens. Research the port for other activities that you can do if your excursion gets canceled. We made this mistake when our space center excursion was canceled. We thought the Kennedy Space Center was a sure thing. We ended up walking all over Cocoa Beach looking for something to do.
Additionally, it is never a bad idea to have a second excursion picked out in case something goes wrong with your first choice. In Costa Maya they had people ready to rebook you on another excursion. We didn't have a second choice in mind already so it took longer to get rebooked on a new one.
That's why it's always important to plan ahead and have backup plans in place in case your cruise excursion does get canceled. Hopefully, you won't have any cancelations during your trip, but with good planning you'll be able to keep rolling along even if something unfortunate happens.
