What people are saying about Quang Ninh

Truly a wonderful experience! The staff on the ship was phenomenal and really took pride in taking care of the customers. They were very welcoming. The drinks were great. The food was plentiful. The room was clean. I had no complaints. The lady that made this cruise such a great experience was Hana. After booking she contacted me on WhatsApp and I was a little skeptical at first but I wouldn’t be writing this review if it wasn’t for her. She made sure everything ran smoothly from start to finish and any time I had a question or a concern she responded to me in under 2 minutes. Bottom line is if you get to work with Hana you are in good hands and don’t worry about anything. It was such a great experience I wish I would’ve stayed two nights instead of only one. I would highly recommend this cruise!

We loved our Cruise with Athena! We took the trip for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it so special and memorable. The cave activity was wonderful too and we went at the perfect time so it wasn’t too crowded. The rooms were stylish and comfortable with incredible views of Halong Bay. The food was also buffet which is my favourite way to eat! All we wish is that we could have done more nights on board! Thank you all, we won’t forget our time on Athena.

It was a vey good tour,definitelly reccomend it. Worth the money. Well organized, guide was very nice,good english,a little stronger accent but possible to understand. The only dissapointment was the swimming because the beach was very dirty (specially the watter) and crowded, but everything else was amazing,cruising in Halong Bay at sunset wow so much fun! Thanks!
