Double check your port times

It is always a good idea to double check your cruise itinerary including the port times when planning your activities. Our original port time for Dubrovnik was 1:15 PM to 7:00 PM. But today we were alerted that are part time has changed; we will now have an extra two hours because we will arrive in Dubrovnik at 11:15 AM. This is good news because we always felt like we would not have enough time to see Dubrovnik. We have contacted our private tour guide to see if he can meet as two hours earlier than originally planned. We hope so because we would like to still do the tour but also have some additional time for just sitting or walking and looking at what all there is in the city. I am glad we found out now rather then after we had sailed because once we sale it would have been harder to contact our tour guide to make adjustments to our day's plans.

While we are fortunate that our port time has lengthened there are occasions when the time in port is shortened. These changes in schedule are more important to note because if you have a tour scheduled that the times are no longer going to fit within the port time, you don't want to miss your tour or be late returning to the ship.
