Magnificent place

Certainly a great day, crew supportive. Excellent variety of activities. My first time to the reef, what a magnificent place, thank you so much.

Wonderful day

With perfect weather little could go wrong. I had a wonderful day and particularly thought the crew did all they could to make sure all went well.

Could not have been better!

Could not have been better! Helpful, attentive staff, excellent facilities for underwater viewing for novices.

Posted By John Lamidey

Fantastic experience!

Fantastic experience! Staff were friendly and professional. Snorkelling & Submersible experiences Awesome. Possibly in terms of improvement the only suggestion I could add is the buffet is good, but it could be even developed further and key items - eg fish ran out without being replenished. Overall the cruise experience was amazing and will be long remembered!
