"Very well organized"

My daughter and I were very pleased with your cruise. We spend two nights on your boat and there was enough activities to fill the days with enough down time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The staff, bus transportation and cruise was very well organized.

"Fantastic trip!"

Mum and I had a fantastic trip on the calypso cruiser. Everything was 10 out of 10. Can't say a bad word about the trip. Also thanks for meeting us at our hotel before we went. Very impressed with the service.

I feel that that there could have been more activities planned within the duration as there were some pockets of time with nothing much to be engaged in. Also, prior to the cruise, I did request that my payment would be in USD and I would like to receive my change in USD as well. However, the staff… More

: An excellent way to spend a relaxing time on the cruise, especially the kayaking and caves. It was also peaceful to visit the Fishing village and seeing how the locals live. Also I was extremely suprised at how they really took cqare of the vegetarians like myself and they really went out of their way to cater for them. I felt I was treat like the queen.
