We did not book any tours here and decide to walk into town. This is a tender port and one of the things I like best about Princess is that they use their life boats as tender boats. This not only lets the passengers see how big they really are, it makes sure they are working. If you are not in a hurry to get off the ship, go later and the wait time to catch the tender will be very short (if at all). There is a nice museum by the dock worth a visit. My DH says the Starbucks has fast wifi.

Another lovely city. We took the 17 Mile Drive, Monterey and Carmel City Tour which was excellent.

The tender process was ridiculous...could not get to Monterey until noon, with a 4;30 departure.

This port was okay, but had to take a tender in from the ship, so that always adds a bit of extra to the getting on and off the ship. There was a nice fisherman's wharf with shops and restaurants to explore, but the wharf is quite a walking distance from the town and there wasn't much else to do without taking an excursion, which we did not do.

We didn’t care for the movie tour booked through Princess. The bus was packed, seats small. It was very hard to see, especially without a window seat. It was raining too. The guide was knowledgeable.

We love Monterey and there is much to see there, the aquarium, Carmel, Pebble Beack, 17 mile drive. However I believe that because this was a relocation cruise Celebrity's excursion department didn't have established relationsjips with shore vendors, hence there were some issues. Monterey is a tender port and after tendering to shore our group waited over an hour on the dock in a cold, damp mist. We were told there simply were'nt enough buses. How can that be you know how many tickets you've sold ? Once on a bus our guide was amazing and she made up for the bad start with her wit, humor and knowledge she was absolutley superb. However upon retruning to the ship we found that others had been crammed onto shore excursion busess some folks even having to stand during portions of their drives.

I enjoyed this port. The walking was easy and not too far from the dock. Beautiful.
