My rating is based solely on just going into town - did not take a shore excursion to the lakes or the valleys, which others said were very beautiful, so only take my rating for what's available to do on your own in the town of Ponta Delgada.
My husband went into Brugge while I stayed on the boat. It's the only port we couldn't walk into from the port. There was a shuttle bus that took you to the train (not provided by Celebrity), and then a 15 minute train ride to Brugge. He said it was really nice, lots of good beer bars, bike lanes for bike riding, canals for boat rides, shopping, etc. i definitely want to go sometime.
