The stingray swim is interesting but not exceptional. There are a lot of people on a lot of boats and just a few stingrays. In our instance the 45 clients got in line as the guide held one stingray for each one to get a picture. The ship photographer then sold a digital package for $40. We had our snorkel gear so saw many more rays than other passengers. Our ship was old and not in good repair. Some chose not to get off when the small, slippery ladder was presented. It was difficult to get back on the boat too. Again, the excursion information was incomplete. We tendered in for 15 minutes, waited 10 minutes, then walked ten minutes to a bus which took us 20 minutes to another port to catch the excursion boat, which took 30 minutes out to the stingrays. We were in the water about 45 minutes. Repeat process back to the ship. There was confusion whether water shoes and snorkels were permitted (no shoes, yes snorkels). We didn't know logistics, times nor that there were facilities to change clothes, so many got back on the bus in wet suits. We wouldn't do it again.
