Ladies...I had my wedding at Dreams Palm Beach just over a week ago and took all my guests out on La Barcaza the following day. Of all the wonderful wedding events/gifts/OOT bags, etc....my guests absolutely, without a doubt loved everything about La Barcaza. It was the best decision I made. Suspecting it may be good fun, I added two extra hours on right at the beginning. They picked us up at our hotel at 3 PM in an older, yet air conditioned bus. We drove about 20 mins to another resort, got off the bus and walked to the beach. We had 27 people in total to it took two trips on a smaller boat to shuttle us over to La Barcaza. There were about 5 staff on board (all men as Flori was away). The boat was clean and nicely set up. I didn't bring any decorations so they had vases with seashells, etc..on each table. It worked fine. They have sodas, beer, rum and mamajuana....and plenty of it! You can bring other liquour if you like at no extra charge...i didn't bother...The top deck is beautiful with white leather couches all around, which I thought might be hot to sit on becuz it was sooo hot but they weren't at all....Our first stop was snorkling....they have all the equipment and helped everyone get ready and to get in/out of the water. Two of the guys went into the water with us and led us to a reef area (not very far at all, they know the waters for sure). they also gave us bits of bread to attract the fish to us....those that snorkeled loved it! We then got back on board and went to an area they call "natural springs?" or something like that. It was an area fairly far off shore with crystal clear gentle waters....no waves. Those that were nervous of snorkeling got out to enjoy this area and absolutely loved it....including my 78 year old mother in law who is frightened to death of water! We did that for about 20/30 and got back on board, First up was the food....I must say OMG....I had the mixed grill for everyone. (I think it was about $80 per person). First they brought out a plate of french fries for the table and then the indiviudal plated dinner...It included grilled shrimp, beef skewers, mahi-mahi fish, chicken skewers and caribbean lobster...all with grilled veggies....my guests "lapped it up"...no kidding! For dessert they served warm grilled fresh pineapple...again...OMG... Then they moved the tables out of the way and lined up all the chairs along the railings....then the party began...we had an older crowd so we certainly danced some (I brought an ipod with music but they did have music as well) but then they involved everyone in fun stuff---pulling people up to dance, have people lap dance to one another, etc. They really got everyone involved. They kept on top of everyone's drink order and I noticed that when you tipped one guy...instead of stuffing it in his pocket...they would go over to the "tip box' by the bar and put it in there----I assume to share with all the guys...nice touch I thought. So, we danced and partied, and visited and chatted and drank and laughed and really just had the best time ever! It did not get too windy at all (maybe a wee bit) but it was still so humid it felt hot. We anchored at 9 PM & they shuttled us by boat back to shore. We arrived bach at our resort clost to 10 PM....my opinion is....if there is anyway you can swing it...you must experience La Barcaza!
