Very nice cruise but the room smells of molds and dampness. The scenery was spectacular, weather was great. Food was great and the staffs were very polite and courteous.

But over populated with tour boats and crushed with people on small cave visits Whilst the entire experience was great you got the Theme Park line up and crush feeling at every stop. Fishing Village, Caves, Kayaking "secluded" beach swimming
