Customer reviews for Coral I and II


Excellent. Apart from the 24hr delay on boat safety drill, everything ran easily and smoothly.  The food was very good and there was a reasonable choice. The crew were good at keeping to the activities timetable - though often not enough time was allowed on some of the activities. All the boat staff were very helpful and safety conscious when using the motor boats as well as generally.





Coral crew superb but boat cramped. We took the smallest cabins, which were fine but other areas of boat were very small relative to number of passengers.
