Had a fun day. However, Scuba diving Introductory would have been better if they allotted more time to practice before the real diving especially for first timers. It didn't work well for me due to some difficulty and the group had to leave me. But overall it was good. Snorkeling was fun. Instructors were very clear with the orientations. It was a sunny, safe, fun-filled, coral reef adventure .

The weather started off cloudy and rainy, and the water was choppy, but by the time we made it to the second site, the sun had come out and the waters calmed.

The crew made the entire experience enjoyable from start to finish, though. I’d definitely book this cruise again!

Had a great time! The Reef was beautiful. The lunch spread was awesome (was expecting just little snacks, but there was tons of choices). The crew was very friendly and helpful.

My only suggestion- take something to prevent motion sickness before hand!!
