Review SummaryFeel like we got taken advantage of in the excursion department. Some of the staff didn't seem to know a lot about the excursions. Felt like the cruise director tried to scare people into taking them for safety reasons but found out from most people it's better to go it on your own. Charged $39 a person for a beach excursion which could be had by a $4 cab ride. Would not help us out in any way for an excursion they recommended that cost us $450 as a family that we could have done right down the road at a mini golf course. Also said it was ok to have my sixteen yr olds, who have riden atv's forever, go atv'ing with me as long as they were with me. When got off the boat was informed that they needed their drivers icenses with them. Found out from others who did it on their own it was a fraction of the price and they did it with their 15 yr old.
