As described, this was a lot more relaxed and quieter than other cruised. The food was excellent. However if you are planning getting some great photos of Wats by night getting photos from a moving boat by night isn't easy.

This was an enjoyable cruise. The food was great. However, I did get tired of seeing the same route for the last 20-30 minutes of the cruise. Also, the drinks are pricey. This is not a cruise with loud music. Expect to see a somewhat mature crowd, i.e., 35-50 years old with
