Didn’t see a whale and wish I had warmer clothes for the children:( Everyone was freezing 🥶. It’s a lot of money wasted for a single parent of four so I wouldn’t recommend if your on a budget and trying to find something fun to do.

We didn’t see any whales. Saw a lot of dolphins. Rough weather. I would have given it 5 stars if we’d seen even one whale.

Galley was clean and organized as well as the deck. We weren't able to find any whales. The children, however, as well as us, were very excited to be among so many dolphins!!
