Port Guides

Once a cruise has been secured, cruise passengers usually research logistics about how to get around the ports the ship visits. A common problem that most people have is wondering what to do in port. For example, should a cruise passenger take a shore excursion from the ship, or book an adventure on their own? Or maybe someone is wondering how far the port is from the center of town. All of these questions require some insider knowledge from experts. I compiled a list of port guides for my top 20 cruise ports, and below that list are more port guides that I like from other sources on the web.
