Our group of 9 booked this tour during our Royal Caribbean cruise stop in Philipsburg and were thrilled with excursion. The seas were a little rough so the catamaran was pitching a fair bit, most every one enjoyed the thrill but a couple others on the tour were getting sea sick. The snorkelling was just OK due to the crowded... More

I really enjoyed this excursion when we docked at St. Maarten! The guys were very funny and youthful, they took my fiancée and I snorkeling and to a very nice beach afterwards! We are definitely going back on our next cruise!!!

We sailed on the Mirabella last week and booked through Royal Caribbean directly. It was a perfect way to spend the day and different than the usual beach routine we usually have on port days. We had our 2 school-aged kids with us and this was kid-friendly, as long as parents are watchful of their children. 5 or 6 would... More

The Mirabella was one of our highlights of our trip. The crew was very friendly and entertaining. I loved snorkeling for the first time. The crew provided life jackets and pool noodles. The alcohol was great too (can't remember leave the boat, I got drunk lol)

Booked the morning 4 hour catamaran sail and snorkel. Very brief sail to Little Bay from cruise port for snorkeling. Not only our catamaran but 3 others in the same tiny area neat the Tiki Hut. Extremely crowded with people simply swimming on top of one another. If I got kicked once--I got kicked 100 times by inexperienced snorkelers who... More

Booked this through Celebrity Cruises. The day was windy which prevented our beach stop due to choppy seas but not the snorkel (Celebrity did refund a portion of our ticket price, without asking, for the inconvenience). Crew was friendly and one even got in the water to gather some sea creatures for the snorkelers to experience. Since no beach time... More

Party of 6 with ages ranging from 4-72 went as an excursion from our cruise. It was excellent. The crew and staff were friendly and funny! Fed us, gave us drinks, and showed us a great time. If I had to pick one negative, it would be that in the snorkeling area there were too many swimmers at once. Otherwise,... More

We booked this excursion directly through Island Marketing instead of through the NCL Gem. We were escorted to the Mirabella, took off our shoes and sailed off to our first stop for snorkeling. Mate, Leroy, got everyone that wanted to snorkel equipment and safely vests. There were noodles available and we walked down the stairs into the water. We stopped... More

My husband and I spent my birthday a few weeks back sailing on the Mirabella. The crew were exceptional. The day was perfect. The snorkeling was good - although a bit crowded with the other tours in the area. The lunch and snacks a nice touch. My husband liked the rum punch. I loved the "chocolate rum" whose name we...
