Review summary

Everything to do with the 'boat ride' and the way we were fed and treated was excellent. The thing I we were upset and disappointed about was the Captain's decision to skip our stop at their island. I understand the Captain has the right to do this for 'safety reasons', as I was instructed when I went to the help desk aboard the boat. However, we contracted and looked forward to stopping at three locations on shore and spending a day on each. This of course meant staying on the boat an extended period of time that we did not desire to do. Yes, for safety reasons, I understand, but for good business practice and not to treat us like controlled dopes, give us something to compensate or satisfy us. Not an extra Bingo game or newly wed game. I feel cheated.
