One of the down sides of cruising is that you have limited time in each port which in turn limited how far outside of these port cities you can go. Many passengers want to get outside of the port city and explore neighboring areas. Well passengers have spoken and the cruise lines have listened and now several cruise lines are offering overnight land excursions.
Passengers on Regent Seven Seas Cruises can tke overnight excursions to the Taj Mahal.
Holland America Line is offering overnight trips to Sri Lanka.
Guests on Silversea Cruises can spend the night in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
Hurtigruten will take guests reindeer sledding where they will spend the night in a Sami tent.
Royal Caribbean International is offering two day overnight excursions in ports in Greece and Tikal, Guatemala, where guests will rejoin the cruise ship at the next port.
Crystal Cruises offers more than a dozen Overland Adventures on its 102 day Grand Pacific Panorama where guests can spend between one and four nights hundreds of miles from port.
