It was a wonderful experience, the cruise is very beautiful and modern, not too crowded, since we would have been about thirty, the suggestive place, swimming and kayaking in the waters of Ha Long Bay is really beautiful; the excellent food, from breakfast to dinner, and last but not least the kindness of the staff, from Hana who contacted me first to give me all the information and advice up to the manager Peter always very helpful, passing through all the waiters and those who worked at the inside the cruise who try in every way to make you have a good experience. Surely one of the best ways to discover the charm of this place.

It’s our first time in Vietnam and booking this cruise was the best decision ever. Was a little bit disappointed at first coz the boat I initially book was full but then the staff of the local partner guide was able to compensate by giving us free limo pick up. During our cruise, the staff were amazing. Food was great and the experience was superb. Thank u to all for a great job. Kudos to the staff.

We had a really good time on board. All the staff was so friendly and helpful and our guide was really professional and well-informed. The food was good and we were so thankful that our special wishes were completely fulfilled (no meat, no seafood, no eggs, no onions ;)). The cocktails were delicious! Everything was clean and comfortable. Thank you again!
