“Best cruise ship excursion ever”
Reviewed January 9, 2014
My husband and I took this excursion on January 3, as part of our Celebrity Cruises NYE cruise. I have to say my husband steers away from ship excursions but he agreed this was one of the best we have been on.Most ships advertise it as "Honeymoon Beach/Christmas Cove" snorkel. I was very impressed by the professionalism of the crew, especially when they reminded us tourists not to touch the turtles or chase them. I love seeing sea turtles and get so annoyed when people are not respectful of their endangered status.We were not disappointed at all- got to see rays and more turtles than I have ever seen snorkeling. Then we went to Honeymoon Beach, which is a small beach on Water Island for sun, more snorkeling if you wish, beach time, and a delicious lunch. Food was abundant.The Painkillers on the way back were delish - I would probably say this is a good trip for teens - adults. Our whole group was adults and it allowed people to let loose a bit more.I really enjoyed this trip and Cool Boats USVI is top notch!
“Whole Family Loved This Trip”
Reviewed January 7, 2014Our 20 family members (including my older mother in law in a wheelchair) enjoyed an afternoon on a spacious catamaran crewed by a lively and fun crew of 3. They took good care of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. They took us from Charlotte Amalie St Thomas across to Buck Island, gave us snorkelling equipment and we swam around with turtles, fish and even an octopus! Water was warm and calm, and a perfect Caribbean blue. Great excursion from our Celebrity Cruise!
