It was a really great experience! The boat is beautiful and we had a very large room with a stunning view. The activities are very well thought of and give a great overview of the Halong Bay. Our host Tom was very professional and nice and made sure that everyone knows what the schedule was. Special Thanks go out to Hana who arranged our transfer vom Hanoi to Halong Bay and back to the Hanoi Airport! The communication was very easy and nice and the professional organization made our travel more relaxed. Just one little note: As a vegetarian i was made aware of what i could eat from the buffet by the nice waiter, but i was not informed that they would bring me extra vegetarian food to the table. So we ended up with more on our table than we could eat :) Overall a beautiful relaxed cruise with nice and professional staff.

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.

Alles in allem war es positiv. Die Bilder sind etwas schöner als die Realität. Das Schiff hatte keinen Pool. Das Zimmer ist sauber, auch das Bett, sehr bequem und ruhig. Schöne Aussicht vom Balkon. Das Bad ist oberflächlich ok. Die Crew ist so nett und zuvorkommend. Alle geben ihr Bestes. Das ist toll. Das Essen war reichlich und gut. Um die Halong Bucht zu sehen, würde ich die 5* Fahrt buchen.
