We recently booked this excursion through Carnival Cruise line. What an unforgettable experience! I can not say enough positive things about the guide and the photographer! They were so friendly and shared lots of interesting info. They had built a trusting relationship with the sting rays, and it showed. Very child friendly excursion that I would do again in a...

I was trying to decide between Allura and another catamaran, but am so glad I chose this one!! To start off was a little rocky. The guide in charge of getting us to the catamaran was disorganized and didn't have enough room on the van to get us all there. It wasted time when they realized they needed two vans... More

I don't know if it was the beautiful day, the gorgeous boat, kissing the sting rays, the amazing staff, the still blue water or the company but this experience is something that always brings back a smile to my heart when I think of it. The catamaran is clean and comfortable. The staff was super knowledgable and beyond friendly. We... More

I'm from FL so we see beautiful beaches & sea life on a regular basis BUT we had such a blast with these people! It's a big boat but they handle it very expertly and we felt very safe in the choppy waters & boat traffic. And playing with the huge stingrays was so cool! And the crew photographer took... More

I wish I remembered the name of our guide - she is from Argentina. She made the trip! She was knowledgeable, patient and so personable! We absolutely loved the catamaran ride and, of course, greatly enjoyed the sting ray experience. We booked through Carnival and it was well worth the money. I'd recommend it for anyone, young or old. I... More

Using pre-paid wi-fi minutes and my time while still on board a cruise that stopped in Grand Cayman because this trip was disappointing. I am a seasoned traveller and hate to see others taken advantage of, hence the quick review. This operator misleads by stating that snorkeling will take place, when it does not. Nice catamaran, but the deckhand, spent... More

I'm still in awe from this experience. It was a pleasant ride on the catamaran through the most clear, brilliant water you can imagine. Once we got to the "Stingray City" the staff came around the boat and talked to us all about how to handle the stingrays. They were very clear on how to be safe and how to... More

Sailed in on Carnival Valor and this was the one excursion we were most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. Two adults two teens - this is a not a booze cruise, it was a pleasant motor out and sail back on a spacious catamaran. Lots of info from staff to prepare you for the experience delivered to...
