We recently booked this excursion through our cruise ship. It looked like it was going to be a lot of fun and it received many good reviews so we were very excited to go. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The woman on the microphone talked endlessly and was so difficult to understand her through the muffled microphone. The salsa was... More

My wife and I had hoped to do some snorkeling, but ended up choosing "Salsa & Salsa" because weather issues made our day-trip of choice "risky," at best. I'm fairly well skilled in the kitchen, and I make a variety of my own salsas. So my wife suggested this day trip thinking I'd have fun "in my element," and that... More

This was a last minute excursion booked on our cruise. I read about it and kept thinking about it and finally booked it. I am so glad I did, we had a lot of fun. We were in an open room, they had fans going so not super hot in there. Not much of a liquor drinker here but it... More

I've been on several cruises and have booked excursions with the ship and without. This was a last minute cruise and I hadn't reasearched or planned ahead. This JEWEL was hidden on the 3rd or 4th page of Carnival Dream's list for Cozumel--a co-cruiser had pointed out just days before departure. It was VERY surprising this excursion was not already...

Of all the shore excursions we have done on a cruise, this was the greatest. My husband and I really enjoyed everything including the food, drinks, and dancing lessons. The hostesses and other staff were so amenable and attentive and made you feel like you were more than just a job that had to be endured.

I was very impressed with this tour. We had so much fun and had the best time. Amanda, Carla and all the staff was excellent. Our salsa turned out great and the salsa dancing was the best fun. Needless to say the margaritas were yummy. I didn't want it to end. Tropical tours are great!!
