The staff was super. We spent time talking with the Captain, the entertainment singer and waiter. We highly recommend taking the cruise but would recommend it during the daylight hours so you can see the scenery.

We were delighted to receive an invitation from Captain Phil to the Wheelhouse for a personal tour of the bay. We were the only English-speaking travellers on the boat, and I think it was easier for the rest of the passengers to be addressed in Mandarin. We really enjoyed the experience.
