In general I had a really nice time, although the schedule was somewhat unclear. The email I was sent informed me that I should be at the ports a lot earlier than when the ship actually sailed - I was actually there before the port entry had even opened. Similarly for the return, again I was told slightly different returning times by different staff. Additonally, while the activity description says that snorkeling and other activities can be booked on deck, I didn't find this to be the case and had to find a snorkeling tour myself on the island - in fact very few of them were operating on the day I went. I'd recommend planning out your activities on the island before going, there is probably only enough time to do 1-2 things (I went on the stingray cruise with Bimini Blue - and I absolutely loved it.). I might also pack a bit of food, very few food options were available on the island, and there were generally not a lot of fresh options. Overall a great time!

Awesome experience, got to go to another country for a day, if I had to redo it I would definitely go for 2-3 days, 1 day just isn’t enough, Tip: the locals like to drive up the prices on everything, you can negotiate prices One of the main ways to get around the island is by a golf cart, they try to get you to rent them out for 120-150 a day, don’t do it, you can haggle them down to 40 bucks.

Great day, only big downside having to be 30mm before the start of the meeting is at 6:30 am and therefore get up super early (time to arrive etc… get up at 5:30 am). To finally see everyone arrive at 9 a.m., because the boat leaves at 10! Why not just ask us to come at 9am like everyone else?
