The destinations of the Excursion are superb, but the number of guests accepted on this trip and how cramped it was on the Catamaran spoilt what could have been a wonderful experience. We were in excess of 74 pax on this trip (excluding staff)! I estimate that a max of 30-40 is the reasonable number of people on this boat to enjoy a nice fun day. The fact that the Catamaran has both seating around tables and an area to lie in the sun on or around the nest, does not mean that you have to make the choice between one or the other and you are lucky if you get yourself one spot that you have to stick to throughout the trip. On such trips, there should be enough space on the Catamaran for guests to sit around the tables when they are eating and otherwise to lie in the sun while the Catamaran is docked somewhere or while sailing. Because there were so many people on the Catamaran, we did not have this luxury. Me and my family were lucky enough to find spots to sit around one table together and had to be sat up throughout the day, without the opportunity to lie down in the sun, although many of us would have liked to nap in the sun while the boat was moving (for over one hour on each stretch). But there were no other empty spots to lie down, as every singly spot on the boat was utilized to the fullest cramping guests in it. We ended up sleeping with heads on our folded arms on the table like school children.
This is not a cheap trip. I believe we have paid enough to deserve to be able to have a relaxed and fun day in the sun and not be like a member of a herd being transported from one spot to the next on board of this boat.
Additionally, the quality of the sandwiches and salad served in the menu fall short of the price charged for this trip.
Lastly, the staff were very impersonal (something I cannot really blame them for with a herd of 80 pax on board). But in general, I would expect a more friendly and warm atmosphere on a boat excursion during a vacation.
