Boat ride

Wheel was great

Aug 28, 2014 Stephanie CA, United States

The celebrity home cruise was great and we were able to add the sea lion cruise for a nominal fee. The guides did a nice job and kept it interesting. Folks at the Ferris wheel were super nice and helpful. Pizza experience was ok.

Only down was the pizza place, the guy running it was not friendly and it seemed as though I was putting him out by giving him the vouchers, and I was trying to buy more pizza! Maybe try a different vendor, there seemed to be more than one pizza joint.

The cruise was great!

It is a great deal for a fun afternoon in the sun :)

The boat tour.

Friendly people. It was really fun and beautiful background for pictures.

The Ferris wheel was a fairly long ride. It wasn't crowded and we had time to enjoy it rather than being rushed through and off.

The harbor cruise was well narrated and enjoyable.
