I will begin by saying that this is definitely something to do if you want to party your nuts off all day. However, we (a group of about 11) were more in the mood for a relaxing trip to snorkel, see the ruins and then go to Isla Mujeres. First off, the crew was great at their job of being FULL of energy and trying to party ALL day. Second, the food was pretty good but you didn't get an option as to what you were served soooo...it is what it is I guess. The negatives about this trip started when we arrived. We had to each pay an extra $7 for our "ticket" or taxes, not sure which (thought that was included in the price). Then we were told that in order to tour the ruins, it was an extra $10 per person (this should be included as well). Another big negative is that the snorkeling place is NOT private. There are people and boats everywhere and you could easily get lost in the mix. Plus, you are only there for about 10-15 minutes so you really don't get to enjoy it. We did not tour the ruins because we had already seen Tulum and didn't want to waste the money. Next we were served lunch as we went to Isla Mujeres. The town is quaint and they give you a couple hours to tour the area. They give you "coupons" which don't mean jack since the prices are outrageous and you have to haggle down quite a bit (this place is definitely a tourist trap). After spending time in the shops, we wanted to go back to the boat to relax but upon arriving they told us that we were not allowed on the boat until after the 2 hours had passed. This did not sit well with some of us that just wanted to chill and did not need to be served or whatever. On the way back, the staff really wants the entire boat to PARTY the whole way home with loud, thumping music. If we were all prepared for that, then maybe we would have participated more, but we felt like we were a "pain" for them to come up and serve us drinks up top. I am not saying that this cruise was not enjoyable, but you really need to know what you are getting into before stepping aboard. If you want to dance all day, then this boat is for you; however, if you want to relax then look for another tour. I will say the staff was great and fun and full of energy...but it was just not what we were expecting.
