Very convenient to have this service from the hotel to the cruise terminal. A very nice young lady waited for us at the hotel lobby, took us to the boat which went right to our NCL cruise dock, help with the luggage check in with NCL and then walked with us to the terminal. Everything on time.

Was money extremely well spent. Our guide met us at our hotel on time and was friendly and helpful.
She led us all the way to checking in our bags at the Port and showed us how to get to the boarding area. She was experienced in the procedure which made us feel extremely relaxed. I would highly recommend using this private departure to beat the crowds and make the whole experience simply and worry-free.

We had a lot of luggage, so we needed a private water taxi. They did not disappoint. Good service and a great, relaxing way to get to our cruise ship.
