        This was an overall pleasant experience. The staff made sure that we are well taken care of. Ngan is the best butler in the world. She was so helpful and kind. Really made the experience worthwhile

        Amanda luxury cruise ; Not great! Experience
        Not a 5 star luxury experience; Amanda Luxury cruise; Luxury just in the name; simply not good I recently went on a Amanda luxury cruise and, unfortunately, it was a deeply disappointing experience. The food was mediocre at best, lacking variety and flavor. It seemed as though there was a heavy bias towards the native cuisine, which left non-native passengers feeling excluded and underwhelmed by the dining options. The crew members, while professional, exhibited limited patience and seemed overwhelmed. Their interactions often felt rushed and impersonal, which added to the overall negative atmosphere of the trip. In summary, my time on the cruise was far from enjoyable. The average food quality, biased menu selections, and the crew's limited patience made it an experience I would not recommend. I expected a relaxing and enjoyable vacation, but unfortunately, it fell short in many aspects.

        May and the crew were fantastic, excellent service and the accommodations were wonderful! Food was great, kayaking was quite an adventure and we were able to swim afterwards.

        Be aware this is a rebranded company ( formerly La Pinta Cruises ) which took everyone’s money and then went into hiding. After promising refunds they blocked your email so no response could ever be heard again SCAM COMPANY

        This company sells you on experience that does not match the reality of what they are delivering. The scenery is beautiful but it was hard to enjoy when you felt like you were getting scammed. We were very disappointed with the cruise and it almost seemed comical how it was just one thing after another that went wrong for us and so many other guests we spoke to. We had many issues with the boat starting with it not being the one we were sold and the issues onboard such as the power/ac going out, foul odor from the bathroom, lower than expected accommodations and meals. The cruise is sold as a luxurious 5 star experience but it was absolutely not. The boat is in disrepair. The biggest issue is that we were bitten by bed bugs during our stay. The tour operator should also immediately take measures to decontaminate that boat and unfortunately the problem is probably much more widespread given how the company operates and has some guests being transferred between boats between their first and second nights. If you book Le Journey, Amanda, La Pinta, Lotus d’orient, or a Hera cruise you will all be on the same boat. It seems as if they market the same boat under multiple different entities.

        Fab Day Trip
        Excellent day trip with Jadesails. We were so lucky as only 10 of us yet we received full welcoming & service! Food - 10/10 excellent in terms of quality, taste and variety! Cruise ship - 10/10 big, spacious, modern and clean. 3 levels with jacuzzi & gym with shower facilities. (I picked Jadesails as i heard it was one of the newer cruise ships less crowded too). Activities - 10/10 - Thought 7 hours on board would be quite long but actually it worked out perfect - lunch & all the activities - bamboo boat through the caves, kayaking, swimming, live band, happy hour! Even the locations where we docked were quiet & exclusive. Swimming & kayaking was so beautiful & peaceful. Not sure whether it wld b like this peak season tho. Staff - 10/10 we were well looked after by Calvin & David and their team ♥️ kudos to the live band who also multi tasked in F & B and back flip diving 🤣 Def recommend Jadesails!

        Amazing experince
        We, a group of 8 tourists, availed this amazing 1N/2D cruise through an agent in Hanoi. From check-in to check-out, it was an amazing experience. Smiling staff lead by Mr. Jim and Ms. Alice welcomed us and other tourists and gave a run-down of the itinerary. Followed by that was sumptuous buffet lunch and after that we entered to our designated well decorated comfortable rooms. We got a spacious room with two comfortable beds and a beautiful balcony and all necessary amenities. Bathroom was well furnished including a jacuzzi. They organized kayaking and cave tour for us in the afternoon and happy hour including a cooking class in the late afternoon. Weather on both days were very good and from balcony we enjoyed the scenic view of the Bay. Ha Long Bay now-a-day is very crowded with dozens of cruise ships of different sizes and classes. We also saw all other cruises around us, sometimes they passed us and on other occasions we passed them. The sun-set time was gorgeous with splendid blue color of sky with golden ray from setting sun. Rita Cruise authority served sumptuous al-carte dinner that we choose during the lunch time. After a deep slip we enjoyed scenic beauty of early morning of the Bay from the top deck and after having breakfast they took us for another boat trip. Finally, we packed, had our early buffet lunch, and left the ship to shore through another boat. It was overall an amazing experience, specially all of us were highly satisfied with the service of the highly professional staff of Rita Cruise. We’ll cherish this memory for a long time and highly recommend tourists to take the services of Rita Cruise.

        Good cruise with extraordinary service
        The Cruise was wunderful. There were a lot of great activities. We really enjoyed the kajaking and swimming. We had a nice sunset and a nice cooking class. Generally, all the staff is very kind and helpful. Especially, Miss Anh Vân was outstanding. She went the extra mile for us and supported us beyond all expections. Because all of that, we totaly recommed this cruise.

        A waterplane flight is a must do at Ha Long Bay.
        Impressiv view from above! Worth every €! Friendly staff, great waterplane. Easy and uncomlicated access to the plane, like taking a cab. Be honest with your weight, you will be weighed.

        Ship Ok Halong Bay Dirty
        Booked this cruise as most others were fully booked for the time we needed to go. Booking was easy and private limo bus transfer was good, even went out of their way to get us a connecting taxi to get to the airport for an afternoon flight. Ship was pretty good looking but not to the standard of their brochure. Rooms were large with a good bathroom, but windows were not in a good place to take in the views of Halong bay from your bed in an early morning. Our room was first two cabins at front of boat so could be noisy with crew and dropping anchor Food was a buffet lunch, a sit down evening meal and then a buffet breakfast and lunch the next morning. Ship does not do very much cruising and you spend more time either on the luanch in a minibus or kayaking All our party whilst enjoying the cruise felt it was rushed and you could not relax properly. Overall ship was Ok but Halong bay itself has lost its charm and is now pretty full with rubbish, think the area needs to be shut down for a few months to allow for a clean up. This is my second Halong bay trip and there will not be another for a long time to come

        Amazing Experience before and on the Rita cruise!!
        My family and I are forever grateful for our interaction with Rita cruise sales executive Alice Nguyen. I didn't realise we needed a visa to Vietnam from Australia (so silly..) until 3 days before we were due to fly to Vietnam whilst we were in Japan. I reached out to Alice at about 7pm her time and she supported and helped us through the whole process. We got our visa within 24hours of lodgement. Alice made sure that we felt supported during the whole time and made me feel at ease that everything was going to work out. Five star service before we were on board!! Now for the cruise - my family and I had the most amazing time on the Rita cruise. The staff are amazing and super friendly. The rooms are spacious and the food was just devine. The activities are great fun and loved that there was a pool on the cruise. I would highly recommend Rita cruise for everyone wanting to experience Halong Bay. It truly was amazing! Thank you Alice for everything you did for us, it means the world to us! Thank you Happy and team for the awesome experience we had!

        Ba Na Hills day trip from Hoi An a winner
        A visit to Ba Na Hills is well worth the day trip. From condola ride to walking across the Golden Hands Bridge to French town to Wine cellar in the cliff to Buddha & lovely gardens. So much to do & see.

        Fantastic boat and great crew
        We had a wonderful day in Halong Bay on a beautiful boat with excellent facilities and a fantastic crew. The night before, we traveled down by taxi from Hanoi and stayed overnight at the Paradise Suite Hotel in the marina. It is a five-star hotel at two-star prices, highly recommended. The hotel also provided free transport to our boat Jade Sails. The service on Jade Sails was fantastic from the moment we arrived until we boarded the bus to take us back to Hanoi. As for Halong Bay, it is as stunning as everyone says it is and a must place to visit while in Vietnam.

        Beautiful Views
        An amazing trip. We went for one night 2 day tour. The company picked us up from the hotel, brought us to the pier in a car. Then transferred to a smaller boat where we travelled to the bigger sapphire cruise ship. This transfer is normal for Halong bay cruises. Sapphire cruise is one of the smaller cruise ships but i quite liked that as we had the opportunity to meet others on the cruise. It is an older style boat with wood paneling etc and I loved that. Food is varied and plentiful. Food is included. All drinks, including water and soft drinks are extra. We got a table an paid at the end of the cruise, which can be with card or cash. Just not that the prices do not include VAT and will be added at the end. Two 500ml bottles of water were complementary, any supplemental drinks brough on board were required to pay corkage. The room was really nice. The bed was big and comfortable, facing the window so beautiful views of Halong bay. There were loads of activities on the boat that were all included. There was a kayak trips for 30-40 mins around the bay and spring roll cooking lesson before dinner. Then after dinner there was squid fishing and karaoke. The next morning there was tai chi before breakfast then a local rowing boat to go and explore the caves. We did all the activities and loved them all. However i felt we were on the move all the time and never got the chance to enjoy the ship, just sit on the deck and enjoy the view. If i was to go again i would skip one activity. Staff all had excellent english and were all very friendly.
