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.

We were a group of 10 friends on the Dancer Cruise. We had an amazing day! The staff gets the party started before you even board the boat, and the fun never stops. The food is great and the staff is even better. Christina and RIcky kept our drinks full the entire day. The trip to the ruins was quite interesting and the waterslide and diving were a blast! The music and dancing in the afternoon was unbelievable. A friend left her bag at the boat. She caught a cab back and fortunately the staff found it and took it to their office so she was able to retrieve her bag. I would highly recommend this party cruise to everyone!

Before I say anything else I want to comment on how amazing the staff was, they really made the whole atmosphere super fun & were so accommodating & just overall really great at their jobs.

That being said, I'm so glad my boyfriend & I decided to do this. The cruise has a water slide on the boat & stops so you can snorkel in the ocean (it was little too chilly for us so we opted out of snorkeling). The whole time it's all you can drink & the wait staff is really on top of it. They also take you to see some of the Mayan Ruins & our tour guide was excellent, very informative & kept us laughing the whole time. After that they served a fabulous lunch of build your own fajitas which is also unlimited & so delicious. Then they take you to the Isla Mujeres where you can shop & hang out downtown. They give you two hours & don't allow you back on the boat until the two hours were up but we really only needed an hour & felt like they should make it maybe an hour or an hour and a half as most of the boat guests ended up just standing around the dock waiting to get back on the boat. Then on the trip back the staff changed into costumes & were getting everyone to dance & have a good time. Again, the staff was incredible & really made the whole day for us.

It was definitely worth it & I highly recommend booking this with your trip.

The provided transportation was 30 minutes late and then once he picked us up he drove 140km/h in a 70km/h zone and did not stop at 2 stop signs. Cruise was fun and Rene, Christina and Orfa were my favorite hosts on board. Party on the way home was nice even though we just watched. Sadly I accidentally left a 200 dollar pair of sunglasses on the second deck when getting off the boat at the end and of course they were not found by the crew when we called the next morning. My fault for dropping them but sad the crew didnt turn them in.
