I don't usually book my cruise excursions through the ships but this was a last minute decision, I was doing this excursion solo as my cruise buddies were a bit beat up. It was the Paddleboarding and Beach Experience Excursion on Carnival Dream on 9th May 2013. It was my first time ever trying Paddleboarding and I'm glad that I did it as it was a fantastic experience, it has wet my appetite for more. Suzette was our guide and there was 5 of us in the group. She gave expert advice before we got on the boards and was a wonderful guide, she made sure each and everyone of us was ok all of the time right throughout our paddleboarding experience. The location is gorgeous and the water was calm. The excursion included a free drink & a snack which was welcomed after a good hour or so of paddleboarding. The beach is gorgeous and I also took the opportunity to have a beach massage (not part of excursion) whilst there. Even though the paddleboarding part of the excursion was over, Suzette allowed me to go out again on my own as I was still excited about the whole experience.
I would recommend this cruise excursion to anyone and if I get back to Costa Maya someday I would not hesitate to do it all again. Thanks for the fantastic adventure
