“Day Trip to Ricks”

Dreamer Catamaran Cruises
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We took the catamaran from Cornwall beach up to Negril to visit the worlds famous Ricks Cafe.

The trip itself was great, the staff really good and did everything to help you. There was an unlimited bar of rum punch or beer and a buffet of jerk chicken and beef patties which were lovely!!

We stopped to do some snorkelling which was great. The only criticism of the day was that we didn't get as much time at Ricks as we would have liked, just made the sunset then it was time to be picked up. Would definitely do it again though!!

We took the Mobay-Negril catamaran cruise, snorkeling\glass bottom boat\Rick,s Cafe excurison
what a waste of alot of money!! the cruise left conwall beach late , we only got about 20 -25 min's of snorkel time and thats being generous, hardly any fish on the reef, although the reef was preety,food was warm at best (tasted ok so not my main complaint) We did not arrive at Ricks unill after dark so we Missed the sunset at Rick's, Missed the cliff divers, no sense in a glass bottom boat if you cant see anything! we NEVER even got to step foot into Ricks it was off the catamaran onto the bus for a 2 hour ride back to resort not even enough time to take a bathroom stop!! filed a complaint at the resort i booked trip at, and the girl was trying to be helpfull but really could not do much other than try to facilitate a refund with dreamercatatmaran which made it feel like a bit of a runaround, end result was they offered to give a very little amount off the trip :( am filing a formal complaint with the company to see if i can get a more satisfactory result, i do ot expect a full refund but i missed out on 1\3 of the paid for activites DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS PARTICULAR TRIP!!!

Definitely schedule a boat ride with the Dreamer Catamaran group. We did a 3PM adults only cruise-- we did a tiny bit of snorkeling (don't go on this trip for the snorkeling), visited Margaritaville (good Margs, but the place feels OLD and crumbly) and the best part was the 'cruising'....the rum punch flows like water... you see beautiful ocean views, the sun sets, the mountains glow.... staff is fun and young. It's a great, safe and fun reason to get off your resort and see the beautiful Jamaican coast.

We took this trip as a shore excursion on the Celebrity Silhouette. Overall we had a great time. Unfortunately the wind and thus the seas were high that day, but the crew made the best of the situation. I had never snorkeled before and frankly was scared silly, especially in light of the high seas. The crew could not have been nicer or more patient. They coaxed me out into the water and assigned a crew member to stay with me until I felt comfortable. He was wonderful and very patient! I am now a convert. The snorkeling was not good that day due to the waves and churned up seas, but that was not the fault of the company. We had a nice ride along the coastline and into some nature areas where they stopped to tell us about the unique bird nesting and so forth. As a wonderful added perk, all the ladies onboard got free foot rubs. A nice touch! There was beer and soft drinks, as well as a tasty Jamaican sandwich as well. I was very pleased with this company and would recommend this experience as a shore excursion (and most likely privately booked as well, but can't speak for that).

We went in a group of 8, 4 adults and 4 boys ages 12 - 14. Wonderful trip, smooth sailing aboard the Tropical Dreamer, snorkeling (which was OK, but not great), foot massages for the women, rum punch, and my favorite was the stop at Margaritaville. We got to play on the huge water slide and all the water toys in the ocean which was tons of fun. Wonderful crew. This sail was one of my favorite parts of our week in Jamaica.
