10 FUN MONEY & SAVING REASONS to create your private Tour Sharing group on Cruise Critic Roll Call
Thousands of Cruisers are active on Cruise Critic. This makes Cruise Critic the ideal place to find like minded cruisers interested to share your tour.
You can select tour mates from your own ship for optimal time saving and efficiency. By creating your group with other members from your own ship, you maximize your time and sightseeing opportunities by avoiding shuttling from ship to ship to collect other parties upon pick up, and then again upon return.
You select the tour of your choice to share with others with personal flexibility. When joining existing tour sharing tours, options can be limited and flexibility not possible.When you select your own tour you have the possibility to make adjustments and invite others interested in joining your customized tour.
You are in charge of who joins your tour. Unlike generic tour sharing options offered by many companies that places you in a van filled with complete strangers that you may or may not have anything in common with, by creating your own tour group you make the final decision of who joins your tour for your optimal enjoyment with your tour mates.
You get to know your tour mates in advance and make new friends. By creating your own private tour group, you have the unique opportunity to get to know your new tour mates in advance for a more enjoyable shared tour experience. This special opportunity is not possible on generic shared tour options where strangers are grouped together.
You choose the size of your group. Generic tour sharing options aim at filling up the vans with maximum capacity, 8 passengers. While this is the most cost effective option, it may not be the most comfortable option for many cruisers who prefer more space inside the vehicle.If comfort is important to you, you can create a small group of up to 6 persons and have a more enjoyable and comfortable tour experience.
Because tour sharing reduces individual rates significantly, each individual party pays their own small share independently to the driver in Euro currency.
