By the best tour. This is on a catarman not a traditional cruise again. It is worth the money and I would repeat it again. The actual ride on the boat was so awesome that I kind of hid just enjoy the water. This is a party boat and I recommend it for adults only. The staff is awesome and you can drink all you want non alcoholic and alcoholic. The food is great and all you can eat once you get to the Island of Mujeres. You will enjoy a spectual show of traditional dances of Mexico and one from Africa. The show is exciting and the clothing beautiful. They put there all into it and just when you think it is over they have a talent show and beware you may be picked because it is made of the actual audience and you win a prize. I had the pleasure of speaking with a young lady off and on before the tour that worked on the boat and she made sure to show me the love returning back to the boat and letting me know she personally missed me.
She was one the girls to keep the boat fun while traveling and as young lady even polite enough to ask a wife before dancing with her husband. I though that was even impressive. This a tour I would repeat and enjoy again. You will return late but it is well worth it and you can relax or party. Any attire is welcome and the main thing is have fun as this is a party boat. However you can relax under the moonlight moving quickly through the ocean. Get ready and cruise away. This does leave from the dock not your hotel but only one bus ride from any hotel in the hotel zone. Don't be silly and take a cab totally not necessary.
YEA for this one , and thumbs up , Adults go for it.
A fantastic tour great food and entertainment highly recommended staff were great can't fault it
This was an fantastic dinner cruise! My wife and I really enjoyed it. Once on board the staff entertained you and got you actively involved on the boat which was fun. Once we got to Isla Mujeres we had a nice dinner and the show the dancers put on was at least 1 1/2 hours which was spectacular! Two thumbs up! My only disappointment was how cheap ppl were with their tips in the end and the staff worked hard all night to ensure we had a great time.
second time on this trip, it was even better than the first time drinks and on ship activities were great. the food presentation on the island was better than the first ime we went,and it was much better organized.
R and A N.J.
Strongly recommend, the show was excellent, dinner was good, drinks where free flowing on and off the boat.
If you want to party, this is the tour to take. As you board the boat you are given a drink to get it started with. They crew gets you going with plenty of dance activities on the boat. You can get special drinks made by the bartender as your traveling to the Island. After arriving you will be assigned a table to eat at and given more drinks before your called on to get your meal. There was plenty of choices for your meal and it is buffet style along with getting your dessert afterwards. They then take you to where the stage is and the show is interactive with everyone in the group in between the awesome dance troupe that is there. Did I say you get more drinks as you're watching and being in the show. The drinks really weren't that strong they will quench your thirst. After all of that is done (about 3hrs in), they board you back on the boat for the return trip to Cancun with more lively music and drinks. I would say one thing not to do is purchase the video that they sell of your trip. It's not that professional and overpriced. You don't realized it until you get home and watch it. Tips are encourage before getting off the boat and they deserve one after what the crew do to entertain you. This is one that we will do again and suggest to friends when they come to Cancun.
This Caribbean Carnival was very entertained for us. People were friendly and funny from Cancun to Playa Mujeres. The food was good, but we did not have time enough to enjoy it.
Be prepared to be on your feet and party. I'm not sure if every cruise is the same, but ours was pirate themed. This thing was pretty full on but the staff are very, very good, the food is great and the show is interactive.
Caribbean Carnival is very well organized show, had very good time. We were out for close to 4 hours. Staff is courteous and caring. Food was ok. Dance performance was excellent! Definitely recommended.
Great fun staff were good at entertaining on the way would highly recommend especially because it is at night
Awesome evening, the staff are great hosts and make a great effort to include everyone in the show
Very recommendable activity, however a pick up to other locations like Playa del Carmen should be provided as otherwise it is very far to be on time. The food was outstanding, delicious really and the add on of frequent flyer miles is something extraordinary.
This experience was fantastic. The crew aboard the Caribbean Carnival were awesome, made you feel welcome on the boat.
This was really fun although the drinks were VERY watered down.
The Caribbean Carnival was fantastic. Learning we got ripped off by Viator was not fantastic. When we discussed the tour with our concierge we were told that we could have done the cruise for 1/3rd of the price
The process of getting on the trip almost ruined the experience. After printing our vouchers and following the Viator instructions the local tour operators completely mishandled our ticketing situation. They made the process very difficult and several steps beyond "calling to confirm" and "printing the vouchers" were required. By the time we boarded the boat we were all frustrated. We had a good time in the end but it was a headache in the beginning. I have used Viator several times and this is the first time I have given less than 4 stars on anything. The operating company was not professional.
