    The vistas were stunning, and we were able to go kayaking, which provided even more opportunities for photography. I had a great time playing karaoke since it was fun to get out of my comfort zone. It was a great way to round out the trip.

  2. Michael B

    The crew members were much better than the food; they spoke English really well. The activities were unlike anything I’ve ever done before. My family and I had a terrific time, and Chang did a wonderful job of introducing us to new things and generally showing us around gorgeous locations.

  3. Jules G

    Brian provided support. It was also admirable. Very prompt delivery of fruits and humble manners.

  4. Conor B

    We were aboard the Swan Cruise and we had a great day. The boat is stunning, and the cabins are the biggest and most luxurious we’ve ever experienced on a cruise ship. The food was fantastic and, quite literally, the finest we’ve eaten on the trip thus far. The staff was excellent and took excellent care of us. We thoroughly enjoyed every activity, and our guide was excellent as well. In conclusion, there are undoubtedly many boats and possibilities available in the bay, but we believed we made the right decision.

  5. Aelita S

    Awesome cruise. The organization as a whole was great. Excellent food, clean surroundings, and helpful staff. Cheung, our guide, was outstanding. So kind to the children. He organized enjoyable activities (fishing, kayaking) and was highly perceptive.
