TOP REASONS to create your private tour sharing group on Cruise Critic Roll Call

There are thousands of Cruisers who use Cruise Critic to plan their trips, making the Cruise Critic Roll Call a reliable and ideal place to find like minded cruisers from your ship interested to share your tour.

You can choose the tour you personally wish to share with others with personal flexibility.
When joining pre-organized group tours, customized options are usually limited and flexibility not possible. When you select the tour of your choice, you are free to make adjustments and invite others interested in joining your preferred tour and itinerary

You are in complete charge of who joins your private shared tour.
Unlike pre-organized group tour options offered by many companies that places you in a van filled  with complete strangers who may or may not share your interests, by creating your own private shared tour, you make the final decision on who joins your tour for your optimal enjoyment with like minded tour mates.

You have the possibility to select tour mates from your own ship to maximize efficiency and save time by avoiding the necessary shuttle from ship to ship to pick up and drop off other parties in the group tour.

By creating your own private shared tour, you have the opportunity to get to know your tour mates in advance and make new friends. This wonderful opportunity may not possible on generic group tours where strangers are grouped together.

You decide on the size of your group.
Generic group tour options aim at at full capacity of 8 passengers to maximize profits.  While this is the most cost effective option for shared tours, it may not be the most comfortable option for many cruisers who prefer more space inside the vehicle. If comfort and space is very important to you, you can create a smaller group of up to 6 participants for a more enjoyable tour experience.

Because tour sharing reduces individual rates significantly, each individual member in the group is responsible for their own share and pay directly to the driver in Euro currency.


As a group, you can also share the costs for beneficial extras such as private licensed tour guides for the Vatican and Pompeii.

An knowledgeable licensed guided tour enhances your visit to the Vatican by guaranteeing you will not get lost in the maze of halls and galleries, you won’t miss the most important masterpieces, and very importantly will grant you shortcut access to St Peter’s Basilica through the designated Tour Guide Access entrance from within the Vatican Museums.

In Pompeii, a local licensed tour guide will bring these amazing ruins to life as you learn about the ancient Roman history, its culture, and architecture of this this once dynamic ancient Roman city.
At both sites, your tour guides will also keep you in time so you maximize your visits within the limited time of your shore excursion schedule.
