This dinner cruise was fantastic in every way. The food was delicious and well presented, the cocktails were very well made and everything was served with a smile by very conscienctious and accommodating staff. We were all made to feel very welcome and respected from the moment we stepped onto the boarding platform. While it wasn't the best night for a sunset view due to cloud cover, I still got a number of magical photos of the lights, the moonlight on the water etc. The only thing that could have improved it would be if it was adults only to keep the air of romance steady.

Lovely day out, experienced attentive staff with a high regard for safety. 2 dive points for snorkeling or diving (stinger suits supplied), 10 min helicopter ride over the reef or short cruise in semi submersible boat. (times seemed to clash with helicopter and semi submersible on this trip as such, couldn't do both). Good buffet lunch supplied in the cost, bar on board at your expense. Highly recommended and GVFM.

A very pleasant evening all told. The crew and hostess's were superb, efficient and attentive. The food was tasty and plentiful. The boat wasn't full to capacity and that made it better. There was plenty of room to move around without bumping into anyone else, especially with food plates. The entertainment was just right, not to loud or out of step with the surroundings.
