Some ports are too far to walk to towns. Celebrity's shuttle buses cost  are ridiculously high. For example Dubrovnik,  Celebrity shuttle bus $12. Taxi $13, if you are just a party of 2 the cost is about the same ($12+$12 round trip Celebrity) ($13x2 taxi round trip) If you are a party of 4 you save $22 plus you don't have to wait for the shuttle bus to show up and wait for it to fill up!  Another example Marseille, $19 celebrity shuttle, Taxi $20. At some ports, the ports offer their own shuttles, Corfu free port offered shuttle, Mykonos free, Livorno $5. If the ports can offer free or $5 shuttles, it looks like this is a big money maker for Celebrity.
