We have taken several tours while cruising and are never sure what we will see. In this case it was a great time! The staff was fun and engaging and we had a great time making and consuming our drinks and salsa. Then came the dancing which was a feat after enjoying our drinks but extremely fun. I would recommend... More

My wife and I just recently returned from our 10th Caribbean cruise (Carnival Legend) and we booked this excursion. I did a lot of research on this excursion and I couldn't find a negative comment about it. We have been on more than 20 excursions and this by far was the BEST one yet! I'm not a fan of repeating...

Hi John! Looks like you have become a Salsa-a-holic after joining the Dancing Chefs in Cozumel. Once you have tried our bottomless Margaritas, you will always be back for more! During the tour you learn how to make tasty Salsas from scratch, using authentic Mexican cooking tools. We hope you will keep practising the Salsa moves at home and don't... More

I don't know how to say anything bad about a place that serves unlimited margaritas and salsa. It really was a blast. We were on the island for a whole week, so we just did the salsa class one morning. It wasn't a cruise excursion for us, but it was for every other participant in our class. Now, about the... More

Hi Annette! The Dancing Chefs and the rest of the staff take a deep bow after reading your praising review. We are passionate about cooking and dancing and our enthusiasm is contagious.

Just returned from a 7-day Carnival cruise and had a fantastic time making salsa and unlimited margaritas. The guacamole and dessert salsa were my favorite! The dancing chefs taught us a few simple dancing steps as well. This excursion was absolutely different than the others. Had a blast!
