Indochina Junk - Which vessel?

We (3 people --one double, one single) are planning to do the 3D/2N cruise of Tai Bu with Indonesia Junk in late October. We have a choice among three vessels -- Dragon's Pearl Junk (10 cabins, max for 20 people; 660 USD/double room and 430 USD/single room), Prince Junk (4 cabins, max for 8 people; 690 USD/double room and 485 USD/single room), and Dragon Legend ("24 luxury cabins, 4 decks with both inside and outside restaurants, spa, bar, sundeck area and other entertainment options"; 358 USD/person if we can make payment at least 30 days prior to the departure date, otherwise 398 USD/person ).

Any advice on which might be the best choice?

We did one night on the Dragon Pearl and liked the size of the junk and number of people.

I asked Indochina Junk about the differences among the three. Other than the boats being different, the itineraries are the same except that each offers a different highlight:

Dragon’s Pearl Junk: a dinner in cave
Prince Junk: a BBQ lunch on beach
Dragon Legend cruise: cocktail party and bar demonstration on the beach, enjoy dancing in the sunset.

Thanks, yestravel. Did you do the dinner in the cave?

Some years ago I did one night on their Red Dragon (5 cabins) and though it was excellent. Dinner was on board (we all shared a table--there were only 7 of us) and was very enjoyable. Of your choices, I'd opt for the middle-sized one.

No, all meals were onboard. We did the trip a couple years ago and I don't recall any offering the types of things you describe.
