The boat ride was very enjoyable. The captain was also an exceptional tour guide pointing out the celebrity homes and yachts.

Our grandchildren really enjoyed the ferris wheel ride. It was a great value for the celebrity cruise, ferris wheel ride, pizza and drink. We were astonished at how large the slices of pizza were.
