Don't waste time in port. When your cruise ship docks set out on a sightseeing shore excursion tour of Accra, Ghana's capital city. Begin with a visit to Accra's fantasy coffin makers. These artisans craft actual coffins into whimsical creations celebrating the decreased: everything from airplanes to animals. See the Independence Arc—a monument to Ghana's independence—en route to the National Museum, housing everything from archaeological pieces to fine art. Discover the fishing community of Jamestown and finish up at the Art Center, where you can shop for hand-printed Adinkra cloth.
