This was a really great cruise. With a team that was excited to have us, experienced on managing the people on the boat and focused on us enjoying our time. The stops we made allowed us to enjoy the beach and sun well. The paella was so beautiful. My only comment is that is a really long day ending at 10pm. But it was such a perfect day and would gladly do it gain.

They were excellent we spent a beautiful day but I hope that they will earn more money so that they get bigger boats.

The cruise is not really what we expeccted. We were promised we were going to do some activities as snorkeling but we did not even have the option. The boat gets really crowded which makes the experience not as special. I would personally not repeat. Although the crew was professional and the food and drinks were good too. The best for us was watching the sunset from the boat. ***Ibiza Spotlight says: Many thanks for your comment. August is the busiest month of the season and the trip will have been more crowded as you say. The snorkeling equipment you will have found freely available duringthe swim stop. ***
