Our third year in a row on this cruise. Our 7 year old loves it and this time she actually went snorkeling. The Captain and his first mate are wonderfully helpful. Nice drinks and information about what we are seeing.

We booked in person at the beach front tent located in-between Playa Linda and Holiday Inn. We booked it the day before we went on the cruise. Had a great time and very family friendly!
