Smaller group to enjoy sting ray city swim. Much better than the other Stingray Swims because of a small group experience.

Was slightly sub par compared to several past catamaran excursions we have taken through NCL. The crew were not very energetic. They had a photographer that constantly tried to block us from taking our own pictures and would give us the stink eye about it. We ended up experiencing the sting rays with the crew from a different boat just because they were so much more pleasant and interactive with the guests. Read Less

Waste. I noted what happened in our original summary. If you want to be herded like cattle, by all means. We have done these type of tours before in Grand Cayman and other ports. Usually you have fun with drinks and good music. Nothing with this one! We should have went to the beach on our own. We would have had more time there to spend in the water relaxing rather in a line.

This was our favorite part of our trip! We did a private catamaran tour with Sailing with Friends (their Cruise Ship Special). Alice, Patrick and Vernon were gracious and kind hosts. We visited Stingray City, and Vernon knew the stingrays by name and brought them to us and showed us how to make them comfortable. Then we went snorkeling (which was great, especially the moray eels). Then we went to Star Fish Point. Alice even served us a fresh pizza as a snack on the shore! She also took a bunch of photos throughout the tour, which she provided for no additional charge after we returned. It was great having just our party of 6 on board, even though it cost a bit more than a group tour. For us, it was well worth the extra cost. Read Less

First, the water was very rough-no fault of the tour.When we went for the snorkeling they didn't get in the water with you or warn you of the jelly fish and several of the people got stung, including my husband and a young boy that had to be taken by ambulance upon our return.

We took the catamaran out to Sting Ray City. My only complaint here is that once we got off the ship, we had to wait a long time for the tour to begin (they were late). Then we had to ride a 20 minute bus, take a 40 minute catamaran tour, stay at Sting Ray City about 50 min-hour, then take the reverse back. It was a long day. Unfortunately, we had rough seas, too, which tainted this one for us. Read Less

Catamaran was not equipped to handle the rough wave conditions on the Stingray sandbar.
Sail Date: January 2017
Catamaran was not equipped to handle the rough wave conditions on the Stingray sandbar. Although listed as strenuous, many folks obtained bruises when exiting and entering the boat at the sandbar.

The Allura catamaran is the best excursion to Stingray City. We only had 14 guests and the 3 person staff was great, both in and out of the water. However, Stingray City is not for the faint of heart or easily frightened. It took a minute to adjust to all the stingrays swimming around me, but once I got used to it, it was a very cool experience. Read Less

Drinks not included!

Drinks not included! At $10 a pop the rum punches, while strong and tasty, got expensive. All in all excellent, though since my son doesn't drink and we had enough money for me to have plenty! ;)

There are many excursions that will take you out to stingray city. I picked this one because the description said they sail. They don't sail. They motor the whole way. They raise the forward sail and hope you don't notice the difference. That said, there is a 2 person crew. The lady from Argentina is very friendly and helpful. She will help you hold stingrays and take photos. She's wonderful. The "captain" does nothing. He swims around having his own experience and does not talk to or engage guests. Read Less

We booked tour GCC7 Catamaran Sail and Stingray city . this was one of the worst tours we have taken in my 58 cruises, 1st we were stuffed into a very uncomfortable bus with no leg room ( I am 6' 4") then Catamaran was way over crowded for the amount of people ( approx. 40) and staff on boat was just 3, and one of those was the photographer , when we got to stingray city there was no one supervising getting on and off the boat, I cut/scraped my head getting back on and was bleeding quite a bit, crew had me fill out a report for RCCL about the injury. I was very surprised that no one from RCCL inquired on what happened or how my health was after getting back on board. Read Less

We booked this excursion through Island Tours LTD for $49 each. They transported us to the opposite side of the island on a bus where we boarded a old catamaran to Stingray City, a sandbar in the ocean where the stingrays appear to be tame. The Capt. of the boat held a stingray and let everyone pet it. We then went to 2 other spots to snorkel over the reefs. There was punch and water to drink but no alcoholic beverages. This was a nice tour for the price. If you want more luxury or amenities, it will cost you. Read Less
