Our guide had terrible English and kept speaking to our group (almost all of whom have professional degrees) like we were kindergartners. We were taken to the Surquillo market where she pointed out various fruits and vegetables, like we didn't know what a tomato or potato looked like. She would tell us such banal things as: "The market is where we go to get foods that we cook in our meals. In the market you will see fruits and vegetables. You will see things like quinoa which is white or black. There are many different kinds of potatoes." It was such a waste of time that over half the group took a cab back to the hotel where we all returned to our double queen rooms. Celebrity neglected to inform any of us that we would be there during the Pan American games and that they had books us at the same hotel where the games were headquartered, meaning no King rooms were available. That's fine, and if they had told me that in advance I would have understood. Instead what happened is that I asked Celebrity for a King, they told me a King was confirmed, and then when I showed up I found out that they lied. I called Celebrity today to see if I could get King rooms for the rest of my trip and after 30 minutes on hold, they told me to call back tomorrow (DURING MY VACATION) because there was only one person who could help me and she is gone for the day.

Great city, but the port is almost 100% commercial. If here as a port stop (as opposed to embark/disembark), the shuttle will likely take you to the Marriott in Miraflores by the Larcomar shopping center. Easy to get taxi's via the ... Read More
Great city, but the port is almost 100% commercial. If here as a port stop (as opposed to embark/disembark), the shuttle will likely take you to the Marriott in Miraflores by the Larcomar shopping center. Easy to get taxi's via the easytaxi app - although to get back to the port, you may do better with a car service such as taxidatum. Read Less

This was a very disappointing stop. The ship provided a free shuttle out of the port to a guarded area. We were attacked by the taxi piranhas immediately upon getting off the bus. The guards would not let us leave the area, so if we did ... Read More
This was a very disappointing stop. The ship provided a free shuttle out of the port to a guarded area. We were attacked by the taxi piranhas immediately upon getting off the bus. The guards would not let us leave the area, so if we did not want to take a taxi, we had no choice but to get back on the shuttle to the bus! Read Less

Hard to get out of port and into town and confusing about where things were once we got there. I expected more of Lima

So much to do here. We got lucky and had a cab driver take care of us for the day at a reasonable price. We had a blast driving all over the place. Do not drive here.... little crazy.

Fabulous tour guide. This was one of the best excursions. Saw the Pachacamac (sp?) settlements, which predate the Inca's but hundreds of years. Very impressive (a lot of walking but worth it)

Lima is the worst embarkation experience ever. Our transfer dropped us off a Oceania pickup point filled with hucksters trying to help us with our bags. We were lucky when we got on the Oceania coach to take us to the ship. There were only two of us. The competition with shipping trucks was chaos. The backup for the port security guard to check our passport and sift through disorganized paperwork to find our name took and inordinate amount of time. Imagine the later coaches FILLED with passenger. The back up was horrible. Read Less

This is an industrial Port and a bit scary. We did a private tour and the parts of Lima we saw were beautiful but I wouldn't go there on my own.
