This is my first review so I hope that you enjoy it. First of all, 3 stars does not mean "awful" it just means "pretty average". So don't think I'm hating on Celebrity, as they are actually currently my favorite line. ... Read more

We embarked at pier 91. Our car arrived at the port at 11:00 am but there was a long line of towncars so we were not able to get to the pier until 11:25. (Cabs get to bypass this line, so you may want to try that instead of a towncar.) ... Read more
