  • The narration on the audio is ridiculously fast, obviously to match the speed of the cruise. If you're a first timer on this cruise I feel sorry for you as I don't think you'd be able to absorb the fast forward commentary. 🤣🤣🤣Previously it takes 45min for the round-trip cruise, now it's a 35min cruise. Making a 'fast buck' from unsuspecting passengers. I suggest you walk along the river yourself, preferably in the mornings or early evenings as you'll see more on foot.
  • Only took a quick walk at night, walking around the area, spending sometime with the local, finishing our food, and watching the cruise passed by. It was a great experience. We manage to make connection with a local. The heritage houses were using a designated lamps, makes it interesting to see.
