You can always book ships excursions directly with the ship online, or onboard.

Excursions is about the only exception. Even transfers have to be booked through the agent unless the ship had sailed and you book on board.

And it seems you can always book internet and drink packages onboard as well.

I have yet to use a ship's transfer service. Yes, you can book them on board also, if necessary. And you can always book your own transfers, in many cases at your preferred level of economy or timing.

Eg in Vancouver we rented a car and spent the day sightseeing, with our luggage in the boot and taking the amount of time that suited us, not tied into being on a tour bus.

In Buenos Aires the taxi to my friend's hotel in Recoleta was $20.

In Valparaiso a lot of us took the metro train to the port at a cost of a few $$ pp.

In Florida, the hotels often offer free airport pickup and port shuttles at minimal or zero cost.
