    Rita Cruises took us on a great trip. Tim, our tour guide, was a lot of fun and knew a lot. Great views and helpful people. We had a great time kayaking and swimming, and fishing for squid was a surprise hit.

  4. Milauni S

    The Rita Cruise was a fantastic choice for a family vacation. Anna was of great help in ensuring everything is in place. We had a fantastic time staying in a VIP suite. Everything about it was handled well. The manner the cake was delivered by the cruise personnel, which included helping to put up a gorgeous cake for a family member’s birthday, guaranteed a smile and added to the celebration’s excitement. Rita Cruise and Anna, thank you both!
