Very well organised and friendly crew. The two nights includes an activity programme of kayaking, trekking in the mountains, cave visit, and bicycle ride to a small village. Highly recommendable. Good food. We had a superior cabin with balcony, great view! The guides really know their stuff. 5G WiFi on the bus transfer.

We enjoyed our time on the cruise. The staff were great. The quality of the food and service were very high. We were fortunate to cruise through the Viennese New Year, which meant it was quiet in Ha Long Bay. During peak season there are over 500 tourist boats, which could feel crowded. The boats activities were ok, but the real high light is bobbing along looking at the most amazing scenery. The sea is always calm. The price of the trip isn’t cheap, but it’s very good value. I would definitely recommend the two night cruise.

We took the cruise in second week of January. We were travelling with our infant daughter and had a very good time on the cruise. The pickup and drop from Hanoi was in clean buses and entire time was efficiently utilized. As the cruise advertises, they have indeed chosen a route away from the crowded areas. All throughout our journey on the cruise, which was very scenic, we saw very few other cruises, so the entire atmosphere was calm and serene. Kayaking was fund as we did it in a secluded lagoon. While the cruise occupancy was much lesser than overall capacity, it did not at all impact the overall services or activities planned. Vegetarian food options were plenty. Last but definitely not the least, our guide Quang was very helpful, very approachable and just had the right attitude as the tour guide. He added to the overall fun and good time we had on the cruise. This is a nice cruise to tour along the halong bay areas.
