We went as a group of 4 women off our cruise ship. We all had a great time. They serve great Margaritas non stop while you learn to make ( and make your own- in groups of two) margaritas-two types and 4 types of salsas. Then they did a quick salsa lesson which I could have done without. I should... More

Greetings, Dancing Chefs Thank you for your review. Yes the margaritas flow and the salsas tease the taste buds. I know you had fun in your group and probably made some delicious salsas and guacamole. Of course the secret dessert salsa was likely your favorite. Yes in that the Caribbean waters are magnificent, the man made beaches still withhold some... More

I was looking for an excursion that would be fun for my mother as well as myself, and this turned out to be my mothers favorite experience ever. Salsa making, Margarita drinking and dancing the salsa, all while enjoying the magnificent views. Would do this again in a minute!!

We had so much fun on our tour making margaritas, salsa, and salsa dancing! Our tour guides and instructors were friendly. The waiters were awesome as well. Beautiful view of the ocean from the dance floor.

I can't express how fun this was.. It was our only excursion on our cruise Norwegian Getaway. We learned to make Margaritas, many different salsa's and dance the salsa.. My husband isn't much of a dancer but he had a riot..If you get a chance to do this do not hesitate.

Hi Norwegian Chef! There is no limit for fun at Salsa and Salsa. Isn't it easy to create your own margaritas and salsas from scratch, using authentic Mexican cooking tools?

We booked this excursion because the friends we were traveling with had booked it. Boy am I ever glad we did! What a blast! They start serving margaritas from the time you walk through the door and they are automatically refilled when your glass gets empty.
