First, we must have gone to a different area in Halong Bay than other reviewers, since our experience was that while kayaking and everywhere else we saw no rubbish at all. Enjoyed the kayaking very much. Food only so-so and the cave tour was, to us, a filler, not very interesting. All other aspects, organisation, itinerary, staff, were excellent, definitely recommend.

This 5 star cruise was a major highlight of our time in Hanoi. We did the overnight cruise. Right on time the luxury mini van picked us up from the hotel. It seats 6 people in luxury chairs which makes the journey to and back from the cruise enjoyable. There was a 15 minute toilet / drink stop before we arrived at the destination. Once there, we waited until it was time to go on the tender boat to the cruise ship. The cruise ship was fantastic. They kindly upgraded up to a second floor room which meant less stairs. So kind and thoughtful of them. Thank you again. The room including the bathroom are excellent. It’s pleasant to sit on your own balcony and take it all in. The meals were of a high standard and there was plenty of choice. It was pleasant being in a less busy part of the bay especially being able to swim off the boat. The water was a perfect temperature. We did not try the canoeing. The visit to the cave on Cat ba island was fascinating. Having been in many limestone caves I found this one unique in that the sea had smoothed the ceiling and walls in som areas. You do need to be agile as it requires climbing up a steep staircase to enter, followed by some low ceiling spots where you need to bend down as well as watch where your feet go. It can be a little slippery in parts. The staff are attentive and go out of their way to make this an enjoyable trip for everyone on board. We found it good value for money. The fact that we had good weather added to the overall experience.

The staff of this cruise are what made this experience so special. The boat and rooms are beautiful, all dark wood and balconies, with great views as the ship cruises through Ha Long Bay. The staff, however, made us feel welcome, special, and they were a joy to be around. We got a special treat at the dinner for being on our honeymoon, and we felt very honored and it made us feel special. This was a great experience!

We did the 2 day 1 night cruise. Everything was amazing from the views to the delicious food. Khoi was a great guide and all the staff were very friendly. They took us kayaking through caves, swimming, we did a cooking class, went to the pearl farm and got to soak up the incredible scenery of ha long bay. I would highly recommend this cruise.

We were a group of 10 occupied 5 rooms. The cruise was very nice. The rooms were spacious. Couldn't believe how big the bathroom was for a cruise. We enjoyed the facility very much. The cave that we visited was just OK. Having been to cave Sung Sot on the other side of Ha Long Bay I found the cave we visited as part of the cruise a bit underwhelming. It took a long bus ride to get there and road was quite bumpy. The food served on the cruise was plentiful but everything was lukewarm. I guess if you want some relaxing time cruising on a very nice boat, then this cruise is for you. But if you'd like to see a better part although crowded of Ha Long Bay I would suggest another cruise which depart from Ha Long instead of Hai Phong.
