The crew quickly welcomed us, told us the plan for the day and took us on our way while passing out snorkeling equipment. First stop was snorkeling, second stop beach time. At the second stop...

Weather was great, crew was fun & safety was important to them. The down side was there were 80 people on the boat & where we went to snorkel was yet another large group as well. Made it difficult without swimming into others. After we were done we were taken to a beach where the water was perfect, beach wasn't... More

I booked a 4 hour excursion on this ship off the Celebrity Constellation with this company. 1. We had to wait in a double file line (like we in kindergarten) on the dock for 30 minutes until the catamaran employee determined that everyone was there. Then we we were told to walk in a double file line down the pier... More

If you are looking for a great family and party experience, this is it. We were met in Phillipsburg at the cruise-port and escorted to the dock, boarding a beautiful, well maintained, super-friendly catamaran with a great staff. There is shade for the non-sun-worshippers, amenities for many age groups (check their website for any exclusions), terrific music and hospitality including... More

We went on this excursion while on a cruise ship stop in St.Marten. We truly enjoyed our day with the crew of Mirabella. They were very professional and entertained us very well for the day. The boat was extremely clean and they were conscientious of food safety while preparing our lunch. Their hospitality was excellent and the snorkelling was amazing.... More

We purchased this excursion for online through a private company pre-cruise. This was my favorite part of the entire 8 night cruise. The Mirabella crew and Catamaran are just steps from your cruise ship. We were told to meet the rep. from Mirabella at the tourist info desk, which he was waiting on us. We loved it because we were... More

We booked the Mirabella as a cruise excursion (book privately online to save money over the cruise ship). We had trouble finding excursions appropriate for our 3 and 5 year old, and I wasn't too sure if this one would work out but it was perfect. The first stop was for snorkeling. While my husband went snorkeling, the kids and... More

Booked this through our cruise ship. A nice quick excursion with snorkeling and beach stop. Snorkeling area had sunken helicopter and submarine with schools of fish that came up close and personal for the bread handouts. Boat pulled right up to the beach bay - crystal clear blue water and pure white sand beach. Could have stayed there for the... More
