We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise with Athena. The staff were amazing, the food outstanding and we were blown away with the day boat activity on the second day of our cruise. We chose to do 2 nights and 3 days and were the only ones on the boat to do this. We were transferred to a day boat while the other guests were taken back to shore and were lucky enough to have the boat and a guide to ourselves. Gin, our guide was such a great host. We were also treated to a special breakfast on the second day and a different dinner menu on the second night. The boat was very nice, maybe a little tired in places but we were happy and felt we got more than our value for money. The manager on our boat Tim was a brilliant host, you can clearly see he treats his staff with the upmost respect. Thank you Athena cruises for making Halong Bay the highlight of our Vietnam trip! Also a shout out to Get Your Guide for the great communication all along.
