Staff as getting onboard rude and don’t acknowledge you at all. Catamaran over to South Sea Island is more like 40minutes than 30, makes a big difference when only doing the ‘Finding Nemo’ trip. You then hop onto another small boat for the last few hundred metres, staff greeted the first few people off the boat then walked away for the rest to get off. Glass sided boat was cancelled due to choppy seas, which didn’t bother me seeing it was after 10am by the time we got to go about the island.

Kids club was absolutely pathetic, staff had zero interaction with the kids, kids had some paper and pencils. I didn’t leave my kids there after watching the lady too busy on her phone and no interest in making it fun for the children so I didn’t go snorkelling. My older daughter went snorkelling and loved it, said she seen lots of fish.

The layout is quite nice, had mats with big pillow cushions, hammocks and sun deck chairs to enjoy at your leisure.

Would have been lot better if things were run a bit better and more interest in having people there when you’ve paid quite a bit to get there. No announcements when things are on, weaving etc would have been nice to know where/when for kids to watch and provide them some audience rather than nobody knowing they are there.

Took it to Luki Luki. Nice size boats. Tip: get tickets in advance to avoid line up - easy to book online. They take the baggage at the back of the ticket booth. It’s relatively expensive but no choices available. Nice trip. Great scenery.

From the ticketing counter to onboard we have no negative experience everything went well. The only thing I complaint is the temperature in the captain lounge, the room is too cold. I ask someone to reduce the air conditioning and they did. There is a shop onboard, snack, coffee and etc are available.
