My daughter and I just took this trip. All-in-all it was very nice, especially for the price ($60/person). I believe our trip was at capacity (I counted about 35), and this made it a lot less pleasant than I would have liked. We were told we had to sit on a green cushion, but they were hard to come by and we had to ask a couple to smoosh together so we could find somewhere to sit. We sailed out to St John's for some snorkeling. On the way out we were served juice/water/soda and slices of muffin on a napkin - eh. Had a nice time snorkeling. When we came back aboard, they had set up a shady area and were preparing lunch and serving "pain killers" (very yummy). The lunch was meatball casserole, a cold cut platter, bean salad, pasta salad, fruit and brownies. It was okay - definitely not "gourmet" as stated on the website (and I am by no means a foodie with high-standards". We then went to Honeymoon beach for some more snorkeling.All-in-all, it would be hard not to enjoy a day sailing around and snorkeling in the Caribbean. It would have been nicer if 1) it was less crowded 2) the food were a bit better 3) the captain, Marcus, was a bit more congenial. He was young and seemed to be a bit cocky and intolerant. However, Amanda and John were very friendly and approachable.
