"An enjoyable trip on a clean"
An enjoyable trip on a clean & comfortable boat

The guide was not at hand on the boat very often only on the excursions. We think complimentary bottled water should be provided at all meal times. It was inconvenient to have to request and pay for it at all times

" fantastic"
Everything was fantastic and just what we had expected

Would have been nicer not to have so many boats at the same anchor points at night eg have more mooring locations to separate the boats

"The food n cabin rooms are perfect"
The food n cabin rooms are perfect
Just a little disappointment that we didn’t have Tai chi that morning as I went 2 rounds n were told by crews the activity was cancelled due to raining. Somehow, they managed to start without telling us. A bit disappointed but overall a very good trip.

"Our guide was nice and helpful."
Overall, we did really enjoy it and were glad we went. The food was fabulous and we enjoyed all of the meals. Our guide was nice and helpful.

Please note that on every website we looked at, it was stated that the Calypso had internet service. It did not. That should most definitely be removed from the description of the boat on all websites as it was part of the reason I chose that boat.

Upon our arrival to the bay, we were unsure what was happening and most of the other guests also looked confused. We had no idea that we were being "herded" to a tender boat that would take us out to the Calypso boat. That would have been fine, but there were mobs of people everywhere trying to stay with their guide, and the whole process was confusing. A small child could easily become lost in the confusion as people were herded into various tender boats.

It should be noted on the website that guests should not bring normal sized suitcases on board, but back packs instead. There really is no space for a normal suitcase in the rooms and it would have been hard to get the suitcase on and off the tender boats. We did ask our hotel to keep our large suitcases, but we saw many other people struggling with theirs.

We felt that the staff on board were polite, but not friendly. We felt that they "did what they had to do for us", but nothing more. We looked around and noticed that others were being treated in the same manner, so it was not just our family who were treated this way. There was one smiling young man on staff who seemed genuinely friendly and happy to be aboard and helping us out, and I really wish I had noticed his name so I could mention him. He definitely stood out from the other staff members and we did appreciate his friendly face.

Upon arrival, our bathroom was clean, but very wet. It looked as though a hose was sprayed over the whole thing to clean it up. I spent some time using the only roll of toilet paper in the bathroom to wipe up the water before we used the toilet for the first time.
