Love how clean and roomy the ship was. There were 2 levels available for seating. The staff was courteous. Nice, safe trip. I would recommend them.

The boat was awesome! Plenty of leg room, can move around freely, played movies and great concessions and drinks! The only problem was a little confusion on which terminal to go to.

The Bahamas were amazing...trip itself arranged by Viator was perfect..problems encountered were just with the boat itself..and staff attitude of tour organiser on board..insufficient seating due to staff cleaning seating areas while we were in the Bahamas causing limited seating on our return...groups could not sit together on the boat as the staff tour guide said that we could not sit in the area due to chemicals...but after many people complained they opened up the area...and no reason why we could not sit there. When I said that if there was insufficient seating they should not take reservations she said....no guarantee of seating together or otherwise, you just have to sit where you can.....there were families with children who understandingly did not want to sit apart....I suggested we sat upstairs..she said that's first class only....I asked to speak to a manager...she said he will say the same as me...a manager was called and the extra seating was reopened. I am a concierge in the local area...how can I recommend this trip if I know that my guests are going to be disrespected like this. On the outward journey seating was busy but addiquet...

Hej. Den upplevelse kan beskrivas närmare ordet mardröm. Vi haft vår tur den 5 jan 2018. Havet var mycket oroligt och INGEN meddelat oss om det. Tvärtom - personal såld på mat och dryck. Direkt efter gick de runt med kräkpåsar. Hälften av passagerare kräktes våldsamt under hela resan dit och tillbaka. VIATOR måste meddela folk om det innan turer säljas. Vi både kunde knappt återhämtas efter resan dit då kommit tid att åka tillbaka. Det var sämsta resa i mitt liv. Jag kommer att sprida rykte mellan läkarkollegor om det maximalt.

It was a great experience for my husband and I. The ferry was great except for the motion sickness that come with it. I strongly recommend motion sickness tablets to be taken at least an hour before your journey!

Other than that ENJOY

The island was Beautiful, we decided to head to Paradise Cove and snorkel. We swam up close with turtles, sting rays, lobster and hundreds of fish. The boat ride however, it's similar to a plane. The air con is absolutely blasting, we were freezing the whole way. Take a blanket and layer up.

It was a nice ride. The ferry is a good size, holds about 700 people. Seats are all over. Get one so you can see the tv. The views outside are all of ocean. I wish there was as outside deck so you could search for the schools of dolphins. I'll do the trip again ... the price is great for this!!

Ilmastointi laivalla turhan kylmällä. Muuten nopea ja edullinen päiväreissu edestakaisin. Kannattaa ostaa laivalta bussikyyti keskustaan.

The ride there was very bumpy but it is hurricane season. Can't beat the price and the island was a great day trip/getaway.

not quite what I expected. The on boarding was fine down the jet bridge. Departing from the ship down stairs for a person with bad knees was not so great as well as boarding to return was not great at all.
overall Trip was ok.
