Thank you to Sarah Cally and the rest of the crew that looked after us and made the day something my 7 year old son still talks about now. Food drink included all beautiful! What made it more special for me was the fact they took the time to make my child feel comfortable and safe in the water after he didn’t want to enter but a crew member stayed with him at all times and my son managed to see lots of fish, sting rays and even touched a turtle not only that he got to sail the catamaran for a bit with the help of Cally. Looked at lots of different catamaran excursions before booking this one but so glad I picked it only a small number of people allowed too not like others which take larger number.. Will definitely be booking again on our return :)

This was our third time sailing on Elegance, three years in a row, and we are already planning to go again next year. There are so many wonderful aspects of the trip. - Having a smaller sized group (no more than 14) makes for a very comfortable outing. - Cally (the captain), Sarah and the crew are all very friendly and VERY conscious of passenger safety. - The two snorkeling stops are very nice, as is the lovely spot the boat stops for lunch and swimming. - A tasty lunch of Barbadian food is served, as are a wide variety of beverages (coffee/tea available at the start, juices/etc. during the trip, mixed drinks available after snorkeling stops...great rum punch!!) - The boat is very comfortable and is spotlessly maintained. Plenty of seating at the front on the bow or the seating area in the back. All of these things are why we look forward to our return visit next year!!

This was my third time on the Elegance, and they just seem to be getting better and better with each visit. Always been impressed with every trip, and the crew continue to excel in the service they provide, being knowledgeable and so friendly. Excellent choice of lunch and drink options, set in beautiful scenery. The two snorkelling opportunities provided many sightings of turtles, stingrays and copious amounts of fish, as well as exploring ship wrecks. Everything was optional, it’s up to you how much you want to do. Loved every minute of my time on Elegance, and will definitely be back.

Hi Unfortunately the way TripAdvisor works is that they take your booking then they wait for a confirmation from us if there’s availability we were fully booked therefore your booking was rejected this automatically releases your money The booking for 29th Feb was made at 9.30pm on the 27th and was rejected at 7.50am on the 28th Confirmation pending does not confirm your booking We actually take very few cruise ship visitors the majority of our guests are infact island based and every booking regardless of where you are staying is important to us I’m sorry you felt the need to write us a bad review as really this is TripAdvisor and not us we just adhere to the workings of there booking system
