This shouldn't affect your clients who prefer smaller group excursions at all. If they want them, they can still book them. So, I'm not sure how you can figure its a bad thing for clients.... Unless of course, if the demand drops and some private providers are driven out of business.

The agents are understandably upset because the private providers pay commissions for the clients they are sent; the cruise lines do not.

Excursions used to be the "property" of the cruise directors, as did the "shopping recommendations" until they figured out how much the cruise directors were making on them.
