The ship has been great. But it was not the one I initially booked. A few days before, the local partner told me that they had to change our boat because the one we reserved was not going to leave in the end. They deceived us since there in front of us we saw as if it had made an exit and it was full. They moved us for some reason, and we were a bit disappointed.

The massage of the meeting point doesn’t say where to go , left or right. Then heading at the boat they was no one to receive us guests and show us the way, we had to move around without knowing which boat to go to. The food was good but next time they should provide more options, but the rest was good , the music and the ambiance, the people on board are so kind and very good for customer service

Excellent, This was an awesome outing. The staff was great and attentive. The food was good as well. The only thing that I didn't like was that they ran out of food. Not that it wasn't enough, people piled their plates. If you go on this cruise make sure you have mapped out your return to hotel. When the cruise is over cabs are scarce.
