Asked by Sandra Nagasawa 3 months, 2 weeks ago

Hello, we're thinking of doing the two day cruise, but it seems we don't stay on the boat but we're offloaded to a day boat. Is the day boat one we can lounge on or is it only transportation to the activity? I'm more of a enjoy the scenery, spa type so I was thinking I could just relax if I didn't want to participate in an excursion. Please advise if the one day cruise would be better or all excursions are active. Thank you.

Dear Sandra Nagasawa, If you are considering 2 days 1 night cruise, you will stay on the boat for the whole trip and just use a speedboat to transfer from the boat to the destination.  The one day cruise may offer all the activities like the overnight cruise, however, it may be a bit rushed thus please kindly consider it. Best regards, Annie (Ms.)
