I took a group of international students on the cruise. We all had an amazing time. More to do on this cruise than any other I have experienced. Friendly staff made it even more enjoyable. We will be back again next year.

Staff were friendly and welcoming, and very safety conscious when it came to the activities. There were ice breaker activities to make sure everyone got to know each other and we were treated as one family throughout the cruise. Accommodation was simple but comfortable and the activities were a lot of fun, paint balling, night kayaking, snorkelling, swimming and landing... More

The next day we went snorkelling and hiking up the mountain. Its the kind of thing you just have to jump into. Its not fancy but it... More
