"We loved the ship, the meals, the service the staff and the attention to detail. "

Hi Thomson. Just wanted to thank you for the lovely arrangement for the cruise.

It was a pleasure making the arrangement with you.
Just a feedback for your company. The place we were taken for kayaking was really polluted. Water bottles floating and water was murky.
Apart from this it was an amazing experience.

"Prompt follow up and very friendly staff, very helpful too."

I'm back in Singapore and below are my responses to the questions. I have also submitted a review to TripAdvisor.

Thank you again for your excellent service! The fans were really useful because the weather was so hot. Thanks for going all the way to Daewoo Hotel when your office is at Old Quarter, you have no idea how grateful I am! Have a great day ahead!

"Nice Boat"

Boat/restaurant and especially the cabin is clean and very pretty,
Staff is really nice/always smiling, quality of food and beverages was good.
Only 2 issues for me:
1) program on day 2(out of 3) was a bit to fast paced. I would rather let customers choose between 1-2 of the different options (kayaking,… More

"Azalea Overnight Ha long bay - Super"

Overall, everything was great. Pickup on time; nice and easy ride to the port; the ship's crew were very nice and friendly; the food was great. They take the not-so-populated route which is peaceful. The cave was not the biggest but pretty cool. Kayaking was nice and relaxing. The complimentary water is always welcome. Rooms are very nice. No complaints. Worth it.

Ha Long Bay is breathtaking in its beauty and we were lucky enough to experience it on board the Azalea Cruise. We had given prior notification that we were vegetarian and the kitchen staff went out of their way to prepare a special vegetarian menu for us and took orders prior to every meal to ensure… More

Simply one of the best cruises I have ever done! From the moment we boarded the boat until we left, everything was handled perfectly, organised and put the guests in the centre of everything. Room was spotlessly clean where you can enjoy sunset and sunrise at the comfort of your own balcony.

We stayed one night on Azalea 1. The moment you step on to the boat your jaw drops. Stunning quality cabins. The staff are very friendly. Mixture of activities included, including a visit to a cave.
Pricy but highly recommended. They operate from another less busier bay not far from the most well known… More

We took a cruise with Azalea Cruises in Halong Bay. We were really pampered and taken care of. One of the highlights of the trip was our visit to Viet Hai, a small and authentic Vietnamese village on one of the islands in the bay. A special thank you goes to Martini, one of the crew members and our guide that day. He’s been truly great and as instrumental to the overall experience.

If you are looking for the complete luxury all around package then you will find it cruising with this company. We initially booked to cruise with the Peony but with that being full we were then upgraded to the Azalea. We were picked up at 9am in Hanoi old quarter by a luxury mini van which was the… More

The very luxury experience for visiting Halong bay. Starting with warm welcome from the staffs. Either day tour on Cat ba island or sunset scenery was fantastic.

We stayed two nights and loved the whole experience. Teenagers were never bored and action packed itinerary. We stayed on boat 1 and the staff were so friendly. So many to mention but John in the restaurant couldn’t do enough
Go with an empty stomach as you will be very well fed!
