This is a very nice ship with lots to do and great staff.
Our tour guide Tommy was great very knowledgeable, helpful and funny nothing was too much trouble. Our cabin was excellent, comfortable and had air conditioning. The food was very good and served by nice and friendly staff Nga was very helpful.
We did kayaking, had a cooking demonstration showing Vietnamese spring rolls, squid fishing and had a visit to the open cave, all in one night cruise. The tour bus was first class nice big leather seats and only held 6 people.
I would recommend Maya Cruises when in Hanoi.

Thank Fred C

We were hesitant about going to Ha Long Bay but we’re so happy in the end that we did! We booked the 2 day 1 night tour through our hotel (La Beaute de Hanoi).
Maya Cruise provided pick up at 9am in a luxury van equipped with wifi and comfortable seating. 2 hours later we arrived at the dock to be taken to the boat.
Food was great- I am a vegetarian and they catered to my dietary needs exceptionally well.
Staff were extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile.
Our tour guide Tommy was outstanding. He is a wealth of knowledge and is always willing to provide you with information and answer your questions. He is very witty + comical and truly made our trip one to remember!
The Maya is a smaller boat, it allowed you to really get to know the other guests and interact with the staff. The boat was very clean, had great water pressure, and had lots of space where you could relax.
Overall, a wonderful experience in Ha Long Bay with the Maya Cruise. The views are breathtaking.

Glad we did the 2 day tour as we saw more of the area and felt very relaxed. The boat was good with excellent food and good drinks for additional purchase. Village trip was good and Chung made an excellent and conscientious guide, good job.
We booked room with balcony, it was lovely but view slightly spoilt by pulling support boat (room on the stern)
Would have been a 5 rating but they didn’t empty our bins or service the room.
Transfer from Hanoi superb.

We did 3 day 2 night trip ith Maya Cruise which is so worthwhile doing. Our guide Chung was exceptionally helpful and made the trip even more memorable helping us out with any questions we had. Chung guided us through the village which was fun and knowledgeable. Always happy and the kids loved him too. Thank you Chung and Maya cruise for the best well organised trip to Halong Bay.

We were apprehensive about Halong in general and almost didn't visit. Such a great experience! Stayed overnight and you would not know you were on a boat.

Booked with Maya Cruises through our hotel - They use a different port which means less time in the car (albeit a amazing Mercedes minbus with wifi, aircon, reclining leather seats and charging ports) and slightly more time at sea!

We were first on the fisherman's rowing tour of the caves in the morning. Learnt a lot about the people that live on the water, kayaking, cooking classes, great food (even for a veggie), quiet spot to anchor overnight and Tai Chi in the morning. The manager of the cruise, and who also took the Tai Chi class was a pleasure.

Tommy our guide, as well as all the other staff were faultless.

Great experience at Halong Bay and with Maya Cruises.
