Hi All:

 

Our Karisma wedding package includes a free Catamaran cruise for up to 40 people & food and beverage credit to use towards refreshments during the cruise.  Has anyone else done this?  If so, I would love to hear your thoughts/feedback regarding:

 

  • Menu - which one did you choose for food and alcohol?
     
  • Cruise itself - apparently, snorkeling happens first then snacks? What did you and your guests think of the cruise in general
     
  • Reception on Pier Post-Cruise - our agent mentioned something about them setting up a reception of sorts on the beach or pier so the party continues post-cruise until the shuttle returns to pick us up? If anyone has pictures or details on this and what the set up is like, please share!!!
     
  • Any helpful tips/watch-outs

Thanks very much for any insights/help you can share! :)

how did you get this? I feel ripped off now  :huh:

 

If it's anything like the events they put together i'm sure you have nothing to worry about. Sorry I can't be of more help. It sound like it would be tons of fun though :)

@TinkerSofi - this was an offer/promo they were running around the early part of last year for new weddings booked at a Generations or El Dorado resort.  Since we booked at Generations RIviera Maya we qualified.

ahh, makes sense. It will be tons of fun i'm sure. Hopefully anther bride has some first hand experience with one of these trips :).

 

Perhaps I'd take something for the motion sickness before I go. My friend and I got pretty sick when we went on a catamaran cruise. Mind you, it wasn't a great tour to begin with, but just something to keep in mind ;)

That's a GREAT tip and something not a lot of people think of if it's a smaller boat. We did a "sunset cruise" in Jamaica when we got married and the water was rough. Everyone was fine at the beginning - drinking and dancing to music. The next thing we knew 3 people were heaving over the side! (gross!!) lol  I'm totally terrible with boats so I had taken something earlier in the day to make sure I was ok and stayed away from food and booze. I've learned my lesson the hard way!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@TinkerSofi & @acw271011 - thanks for the feedback, especially re motion sickness tablets.  I suffer badly from motion sickness so I ordered packets of Dramamine to put in everyone's welcome bag.  Based on you ladies' feedback, I am thinking this is a good call and may be used by others.

 

Hopefully the water won't be too choppy!
