I found an excursion that I like. It is listed in my planner as available on my sailing- good right? So I go to book it and if I put in more than 1 person, it will not allow me to do it. If I put in 1 person, its good. I am not sure if this is a website issue (shocking I know) or if this excursion is actually fully booked? Is there anyway to know this?

If it is booked fully, what are the chances of something else opening up on board? If there is no chance, then I will probably just book independent. But the price is the same and all things equal, I would rather book with the ship. But if I can't find out until I get on board, I either have to book the independent tour now or try on board and hope they offer it.

If it makes any difference it is the Dune Buggy Excursion in Cozumel and we leave in 23 days. Thanks.

Is it one where one can be a driver and one a passenger, and they are different prices?

Yes, they supposedly hold back a percentage of slots for onboard booking.
