We had a perfect day on the boat with our 2 year old daughter. Plenty of time to swim and snorkel and watching the gorgeous surroundings. They serve pretty good food and ice cold drinks. Also there was live music onboard. A so called perfect...More

We traveled with our five kids under eleven. We sat up at the top. We asked for them to add some more shade, but they couldn't change the cover, so we shifted our chairs and table over. They made a few stops and all who...More
