This shore excursion from the Regal Princess was a winner! The experience started with taking pictures with one of the many iguanas at the location. A small group of us got to pet, feed and kiss (an option that is supposed to bring you seven years of good luck) the stingrays. What a great experience! After that we were provided with snorkeling gear and got to see more stingrays, including babies, and colorful fish. As if that was not enough, the next thing on the agenda was hermit crab races. Each of us got a hermit crab of our choice. My crab was the winner, and I chose a tequila shot as my prize.

Small, dingy and rushed. We were urged to "hurry along" when we arrived early to join a very large group. Decent education but rocks in water along with sandbags to navigate! Not much interaction with the rays. Sink was a pipe coming out of the wall in the restroom. No beach; just some sand thrown around on the cement. Couldn't wait to escape!

booked with Carnival cruise. had a great time. the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Just the pictures were very expensive. They should offer them for less and I am sure more people would buy them.

Did this excursion through Royal Caribbean International and was not disappointed. Transportation is provided and we got there in like 10 mins. When we arrived we were greeted by the staff and were organized into groups. We got a quick but informative briefing about the rays that we were about to interact with. The staff were very helpful, informative and funny. We were then taken to the section where we would feed and interact with the rays which was fun, but no picture or video taking was allowed. During this time I got to hold and kiss a stingray which is said to give you a year of good luck.

After was the snorkeling part (all snorkeling gear is provided) and we saw a lot of fish and rays but bear in mind this area is about 20 feet deep. Our guide took a cooler of squid and she dived down and fed the rays and fish. Pretty cool as they circled around us.

The day ended with a hermit crab race and the winners got a shot of tequila (only over 18) Each guest were given a bottle of water or soda and then we saw a parrot, iguanas and baby stingrays waiting to be released into the wild.

We purchased the pictures of us interacting with the stingrays on a CD for $45 USD. Relaxed a bit and was transported back to the ship. Thank you "Everybody Loves Rays!" for the memorable experience.

Most of the staff were friendly but not personable. The cashier was rude. Another staff who was handing out the snorkeling gear got a little offensive when we misunderstood her. The stingray handler had basic knowledge about the stingray. The facility is not really a beach and it's not nice and very rocky. It is located close to the cruise dock. The water is not clear and is choppy. We had our camera with us but did not use it as we were told it was not allowed. The host came down in the middle of the interaction yelled at us rudely not to use the camera.
