Comments [None]The Sun Dancer II is a great boat with a great crew. We have been on this ship 5 times and it is our favorite live-aboard. Our Capt was Megan and the crew remembered us. Rooms are spacious, food is outstanding. I am allergic to peppers and ask that the cook identify which dishes contained them so i could avoid it. There is always more than enough to eat, but the cook not only identified the dishes to avoid , but often brought me my own serving without the peppers. We had a group of 9 with ages ranging from 83 [my wife and myself] to 22 for my Grandson. All came away with glowing reports and hopes to soon repeat the trip.
Again, this is my first choice of live-aboard ships in the Carribean.
