Owner description: Enjoy impeccable service, cleanliness, spacious comfort, char-grilled foods and open bar while sailing the Caribbean. Snorkel marine life filled reefs. Jump from a diving board before rinsing with fresh water Or, you can slide down the two story slide into the ocean. . That’s Dancer’s floating reef club! Shop and tour Isla de Mujeres. Laugh and smile on a lively, animated and danced filled return to Cancun. Outstanding service Watch the Caribbean sunset. First level disco full of contests, activities and dancing. Upper levels more relaxing and romantic. Refreshing breeze and views of Cancun’s hotel zone. Truly a boat load of fun!

Before boarding we had already felt welcomed. Breakfast consisted of Mexican pastry & fruit juices.
The Mayan ruins tour was a bit cheesy and we had to walk on the side of the road for maybe two blocks.
We didn't go snorkeling but from those that did go said the water was too choppy and some even had to use the boat provided for those that needed it.
I do have to say the fajita lunch served was fresh and delicious.
Isle Mujeres visit was fun. We rented a golf cart and rode around the island.
Overall experience was good.

Took the Dancer Cruise hoping to snorkel as there is nowhere to snorkel where I live. I even brought my own snorkel gear. After going to Isla Mujeres which you can do for much less money, we departed for the snorkelling. 5 minutes after we get into the water, one of the couples decided they wanted to go back to the boat, so the guide made us all go back to the boat. 1000 miles to Cancun bringing my own gear, Dancer cruise to enjoy party and snorkeling for what amounted to 10 minutes of snorkeling. Once everyone was on the boat, people were allowed to dive off of the boat or ride the slide which I was not interested in doing. So snorkeling was cut short so that people could dive into the water for about 30 minutes. The slow 2 hour ride home was a music and dance session where the guides walk around with a large bottle of beer pouring it into your plastic cup. Then one of the male guides comes out in a bra shaking his rear for the men on the ship looking to get spanked. Seriously?! No thanks. Save your money or take a respectable excursion. Almost forgot, the bathroom facilities are atrocious. Pipes are leaking and it was filthy.

Dear Chris1875,

We are truly sorry that you were disappointed with the Dancer Experience. Of concern to us is your comment that after 5 minutes you were forced to go back to the boat. We are unaware of such ever occurring. There are more than one guide swimming and guarding those snorkeling with our group. In addition it takes around 5 to 10 minutes for a swimmer to even arrive at the main reefs. If a couple wanted to go back, then our tender boat is available for just that purpose. The group goes on and the tender boat shuttles the ones wanting to return back safely. So we are very confused how the timeline described in your comments line up with our tour. We attempt to allow our clients to snorkel in the reefs for about 20 minutes before returning to the catamaran. That usually equates to at least 40 minutes in the water.

While waiting for those snorkeling to return to the Dancer, the diving board and water slide are closed. Those still onboard during the snorkeling activity are either partaking in Salsa dance lessons or relaxing on lounge chairs or talking with their friends. Once all of those snorkeling have baorded the Dancer then the diving board and water slide are open for approximately 30 minutes. The use of the water slide and diving boards do not cut into the amount of time allowed for snorkeling. They are water activities but separate and distinct from one another and do not occur at the same time.

The return from the Isla to Cancun is scheduled to depart the island at 3pm so that by 4:30pm the Dancer can dock at the pier. Obviously there are some passengers late and we normally depart the Isla by 3:15pm. The return party normally lasts a little over 1 hour and 15 minutes and not two hours.

The bathroom facilities on Dancer are the best of all providers of daytime snorkeling tours to Isla de Mujeres. The men's restrooms have 4 urinals and 4 private toilets with fans blowing inside of the respective closed door rooms. There is a mirrored vanity with two sinks to wash your hands and groom oneself. Ladies have a similarly designed bathrooms minus the urinals. The bathrooms are cleaned twice an hour. Maintenance is constantly performed and we are totally confused of any leaking pipes or filth.

Again sorry that the Dancer Experience was not pleasant and enjoyable. We hope that you find a more compatible atmosphere and facility during your next trip. Thank you for having given us an opportunity.


Dancer Cruise, truly a ship load of fun!

Many thanks for a great day Edger Ricky Angel on board the Dancer kept the day fun filled
Shame the water was to rough for me to enjoy the snorkeling I'm not a good swimmer and even with the life belt I had to ask to be taken back to the boat.
Food was very good and drinks flowing
There was only 12 guests on board but it enabled the crew dedicate more time to everyone.
