Default Pinxi festival Taipei

Taking a celebrity cruise to include the Taipei Lantern Festival in February 2018. If anyone else has been to this festival would you recommend watching it from the ship or taking an excursion to participate in the festival

Taipei is about a 45 minute train ride from the cruise port, which is in Keelung.

You can walk to the train station from the ship and take one of the trains, which is the quickest, easiest, and cheapest way to get to Taipei. So, you don't need any expensive crowded excursions.

In fact, the train station in Taipei is wonderful and right in the middle of the city. Price is about 50 NTD (New Taiwan Dollars) or about $1.70 USD per person one-way.
