    Me and the wife had a fantastic time. The group size was larger than expected,this initially raised concern due to people vying for the best sunbathing positions on the front of the boat. Thankfully the mixed age group seemed to respect everyone's wishes and no issues were had. Staff were friendly but there could have been more information regarding some of the sights we saw. Other than that the food was excellent and plenty of drink available. Toilets were in good service too. All in all I would highly recommend it

    Meeting point was easy to find, good and smooth organisation of the trip, we were 84 passangers (the catamaran capacity was 130) – had it been more people onboard, it could feel a bit crowded, the crew kept tight control of the ship and all the passangers, it felt very safe, enough time to swim and eat, all in all great experience worth every penny.

    the lunch was great for the price and snorkeling is always a great time. pro tip… they offer rentals for snorkels at the same price as buying one that is all around better and let's you breathe easier. even if you are just going to throw it away, just buy the snorkel

  10. Laurie – United States

    Wonderful cruise, a few surprises We had a great time on this cruise with our family (including 3 kids). A few things were not exactly as expected. There were 2 stand up paddle boards and 1 kayak for the entire group, so use was limited and not available to all. They were very specific about only serving the free wine only while the dinner was being served and were very stingy with this. Some they sold drinks and wine for purchase during the majority of the cruise, this seemed to be where they were trying to make extra money.
