Great Experience

The 3 day-2 night cruise was definitely the best option, any less would not be enough time. In saying that, the activities did feel a bit rushed, I think the guides have more time then they think, so don't be afraid to ask to stay longer in certain places. The places we went to were great, as was the food, we were fed really well the entire time. One of the highlights was going to a floating house in the bay, it was an amazing experience to see how people live. We had two different guides, and they were both very very friendly and polite, and knowledgeable about the bay which was great. One thing to be aware of when you book, the pictures of the rooms shown are the fancy ones, there are only 6 of them, and 8 other ones downstairs. When we looked at the pictures and booked online we thought we were getting a room with a balcony etc, but we were downstairs. It wasn't a problem because the room was still great but just be aware and perhaps request an upstairs room.
