*To be fair to Celebrity, the Shore Excursion rating and comments pertain to group excursions pre-ordered through Port Promotions, Inc (not Celebrity) and organized by Bob and Sharon Jackson. The Port Promotions rep (who has been replaced now!) in Grand Cayman messed us up on two excursions, and Bob and Sharon messed up in Calica and Cozumel by waiting too long for late arrivals. Mea culpa!
