No need to do any shore excursions - all it needs is a bit of research. If you use a browser and type in the words 'message and cruise and asia' - of the results returned you need approx 3rd link down that begins with the word asia and contains the word 'boards'.

By Robin Clarke

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale.
