Hi, we cruised Celebrity Summit in April, you can find a lot of trips when you get ashore, there is always someone trying to sell you one. Have a great time. Great ship and staff when we went, lovely Martini Bar.

Yes it is possible to do trips yourself if you do enough research. I would suggest googling the islands and seeing what it suggests. And try cruise critic for suggestions in their ports of call sectio.

Hi We did the Summit Hawaii cruise last May. We did our own tours, halk the price of Celebrity. Used websites to find trips. Did Lahaina island tour by taxi It followed Celebrity tour and we saved over 50%. Used taxi for Pearl Harbour and Wakiki tour.Same saving Best tip got was to book local taxi and share with other couples. Really good savings and locals know best places to go and gave fantastic running commentries. Overall cruise was brill and weather on first and last not hot but as we moved further south weather improved and became hot and sunny.Service was best we ever had. Little things like remembering your names and favourite drinks. Could not fault in any way. Only minor gripe was that the average age was quiet old and nightlife finished early. If you are cruising from Los angeles then a little tip is rather than waiting in the hotel scrum for coaches tell the rep that you are making own way to ship and they will transfer cases for you. we did this and had a nice 10 mins stroll to ship and boarded in about 10 minutes with no queue. Also complete online boarding as this saves plenty of time at embarkation. Have a great time Regards Norman and Barbara Penberthy.

Hi, I don't have any answers, but we are doing the same cruise on 8th November so I will be interested in the answers, or if trips by Taxi's are an option there is always the possibilities of sharing.

Trevor Smith's blog

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
