43211 Only gave 4 due to weather conditions effected the colour of the water wasn’t as blue as I would have thought. 5 Stars to the crew they where fantastic.

14321 Don’t trust the photos! They don’t take you to the iconic part of the island but to a small section which is not very photograph friendly.
