This was a Birthday gift to my husband and I from Mrs. Andrews. We are Mr. Ans Mrs Vincent Gallo. We had an exceptional time, we were able to eat our pizza which we both love and The Sea Lion Cruise, which also included some Celebrity homes. The gentleman who ran the boat and spoke was amazing and funny so very entertaining, he really made the cruise so wonderful! Unfortunately we completely forgot to take our Ferris Wheel ride...I will do this again and absolutely recommend to friends. I would love to purchase again for my very good friend and her two younger kids! Great time! I will be back no doubt! Jennifer Gallo 949-228-2654

Thank you for a wonderful day! Loved it!

The Celebrity homes tour of as a entertaining. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable.

Being cash for a tip, and pay to get crowns the tour to the other side if the harbor.

The celebrity boat tour.

My husband is hard of hearing and had a hard time hearing the guide. Probably if we sat in front of him he could hear better. I heard him most of the time and repeated what he said. If there was a way to help that it would be good for others as well. I have highly recommended the boat tour.
