    Took this cruise ship in Ha Long Bay for a one night cruise. Events were well-planned, food was amazing and creatively presented, and the crew were top-notch! Extremely comfortable beds and rooms. Highly recommend!!!

    First this trip started with free upgrade to an more expensive cruise. Which was an amazing start. Our wonderful guide Kian was so fun and shared his knowledge of history and legends of Halong Bay. We got to go kayaking and jumping of the boat into the water, which was an amazing experience. We also learned how to make spring rolls and had real tea from Vietnam. Also my friends had her birthday on the boat, which the guide Kian was sure to remember. Fixing together a cake and the boat sang happy birthday for her. A 10 out of 10 tour!

    Mr. Si is an honest person helped us to plan our tour in Halong bay even during low tourism times with reasonable price as we were unable to find any guide.

    1. Helped to arrange a private boat to Thein Cung Cave.
    2. Halong City tour.
    3. Helped us to find the cruise for stay
    4. Helped us for cat bi airport transfer
    5. He has good network within the city even helped us to find Indian restaurant. As many restaurants are shut due to coronavirus.

    So highly recommended for comfortable tour with no hassles.

    Earlier reviews of Ha Long Bay itself mention trash. I was very pleased to see barely any trash once we got away from the port area. Single-use plastics have been banned for some time now, which will have helped enormously.

    Anyway, to our trip... from our pick-up at Hanoi Opera on an extremely comfortable minibus to when we were dropped back there the following day, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

    The staff were excellent. The boat has 22 cabins and was full, I think. Each cabin has a private balcony, where you can sit and enjoy the views. There was a corner jacuzzi in our cabin, which would be nice if you go in winter.

    There were only 5 Westerners onboard, but both the boat manager and assistant manager spoke very good English and made sure that all announcements were made in English as well as Vietnamese.

    The other staff were also excellent and the service of a high standard. The food was good and plentiful - a bit too plentiful, actually. We felt guilty at having to leave so much of what was put on our table. An earlier review mentioned lack of drinking water. Perhaps that comment was acted on, as there was free drinking water with all meals, on the launch for trips off of the boat, and there to greet us when we returned from them.

    The short trips off the boat are all worth doing as long as you know what to expect. The trip to Surprising Cave was our favourite. The cave is massive and the lighting shows off the features well. The kayaking is for only a short time around a small bay, which was crowded with other kayakers. The 'bamboo boat' option around the same small bay was not on bamboo boats, just large rowing boats. The swimming trip is to a small man-made beach, but it was lovely to get into the water to cool off.

    My daughter enjoyed the karaoke in the evening, which had lots of Western songs to choose from. However, the best thing of all was sitting up on the top deck, sipping a G&T and watching the incredible sunset.

    Booked 2day/1 night cruise. The boat is exceptional and the staff even more so. Loved everything about the experience. Many thanks to Bruce and his team for ensuring we had a wonderful time. Would not hesitate to recommend if trying to decide which of the hundreds of boats to book. Cruise heads off to the right of the bay so far less crowded waters. Most follow route to the left.
    The rooms are really well done. We did treat ourselves to the cabin with terrace and worth every penny. The food was perfectly prepared and presented, the lunch being exceptionally noteworthy.

    Booked a drive from Halong Bay to Cat Bi airport. The driver came on time, it was a smooth and quiet ride. There was WiFi in the car and the driver gave us water bottle. And to top it off the price was half the price our hotel asked for.
