I’ve just returned from the 2 night 3 day cruise and I absolutely loved it! What a spectacular part of the world. It’s like being in a fairytale. The calypso cruiser is not to big and not too small, it is just perfect. We only had 10 guests aboard my first night and 15 the second which made for a more personalised experience. The boat has old world charm but is still clean and had everything I was looking for. I like bed the beautiful top deck to relax and soak in the views. The activities were fun and well organised. The bed was super comfortable and I could see the islands floating past from my pillow! The staff were fabulous. I had two incredible guides over my stay and I must make a special mention of Tamh who went above and beyond when I found myself in a bit of a cash debacle. She sorted a solution all the while making me feel calm. The captain and crew were aldo lovely. I recommend the 2 night 3 day option ad you get to go swimming in the outer bay which you cannot in ha long itself. Thank you so much
