Review summary

This is a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn't be missed!  Everything was included and perfect!  You will never have a chance to experience nature as it was meant to be seen anywhere else.  This is one place that hasn't been commercialized in any way.  The ship was great but now they are putting it in dry dock in a few weeks to totally refurbish it so it can only get better.  We were in a cabin without a balcony for our first time ever and I thought it would feel small in the room.  The room was perfect.  We had a window and didn't miss the balcony at all.  The staff was awesome.  

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was good. Not anything exceptional but with such a small ship and few passengers, they still managed to have a nice variety.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We were very busy with the excursions but when we were on the ship, there wasn't much to do but because it was such a small ship, we understood.


5 out of 5
There wasn't really much entertainment as everyone was so tired at night from the activities that they went to bed soon after dinner.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship looked fine to us but we heard it was getting totally revamped in a couple of weeks.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was very roomy and clean. Every time we came back to the room, it had been straightened up for us. The staff was excellent!

Ship tip

1) The internet is VERY slow if you can get on at all. There should be a way that they can fix this. 2) I would recommend that if you have your own snorkeling mask, you bring it. The ones that they provide are a 1 size fits all style that doesn't.
