Description

On arrival in Chan May port, disembark the ship and meet your expert guide. Your transfer to Hoi An is about 1.5 hours and a lovely ride, fully narrated by your guide.

Between the 17th and 19th centuries, Hoi An was a prosperous trading port. Today, this World Heritage-listed ancient town boasts well-preserved buildings, pedestrianized streets, and unique cuisine, allowing visitors a glimpse of its illustrious past. The narrow lanes are ideal for a guided walking tour. There is plenty to visit, including the old merchants' houses with influences from Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese architecture; the 400-year-old Japanese Covered Bridge; the Assembly Hall of the Chaozhou Chinese Congregation with outstanding wood carvings; and the colorful market with stalls brimming with local specialties including silk, which can be turned into fashionable garments within a day or two.

Pop in and out of the galleries that will call to you with the work filling their windows. Enjoy watching the round fishing boats, never seen before by us seasoned travelers.

Lunch is at the charming Ancient Faifo restaurant, comfortable and typical of the local food. Combining elements of art, music, and history, Ancient Faifo offers culture catered to the highest tastes with its menu of quintessential Vietnamese cuisine and innovative reinvention of ancient recipes. After lunch, transfer back to Chan May to embark the ship.

If time permits, we'll make a stop at Cham Museum, which houses artifacts from the Kingdom of Champa (the people who ruled central Vietnam for 1,000 years), and possibly an outside visit at Marble Mountains, consisting of five marble hillocks that were once islands.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
