A resort for a day pass is the ultimate VIP cruise excursion. While your fellow passengers will be elbow-to-elbow with their frantic shore tour groups, you’ll be eating, drinking, and lounging in the countless amenities provided by your luxurious resort. Escape the crowded beach, packed tour bus, and busy streets. Instead, grab a cabana and a frozen cocktail as you mingle among the other resort guests.

Resort day pass excursions are the new trend in shore tours. Particularly for frequent cruisers that have “been there and done that.” After you’ve checked the Mayan Ruins off of your bucket list, climbed Dunn’s River Falls and zip lined over the rainforest, it’s time to relax. And there’s no better way than with the shore tours below.

As this type of tour is fairly new, we’ll answer some of our most frequently asked questions.


Is a resort for a day pass available at my cruise port?
Depending on your cruise port, a resort visit may be available. Below, we’ve listed every cruise port for which we’ve found a resort option. Click on your port to see the available options.

Is my resort for the day pass all inclusive?
Most of the options are all inclusive. These include all food, drink (alcohol too), and resort amenities. Some resorts offer a food and beverage voucher and others only offer these for purchase. You’ll want to read all of the tour details to make sure you know what is included with your pass.

Can I purchase these from my cruise line, while on the ship or at the port?
No, the cruise lines do not offer the packages listed below. Nor are these tours available at port. These are available only through the links included with each resort option below and must be purchased in advance of your arrival.

Must I be on a cruise to take advantage of these?
Yes, the resort for the day passes below are provided only to cruise passengers. You may be required to show cruise documentation (such as your cruise key card) upon arrival.

Do these resort passes sell out?
It is very common for day passes to sell out. We recommend booking as far in advance as possible to secure your space. You always have the option to cancel and have your cost refunded if you’ve changed your mind.

What if my cruise ship changes the itinerary?
If your cruise ship is unable to make it to port, you will receive a full refund. If your itinerary changes and you arrive to the port on a different day than expected, your resort for the day pass will be honored on the new arrival date.

Is there a coupon code or discount available for my resort for a day?
You will not find a valid promo code or other discount for the resort day passes listed below anywhere online. Any discounts will be listed directly on the sites when clicking through.
