"It was a great experience. "

The only bad part was there was a lot of garbage in the bay. I understand you can’t control that part but the kayak trips aren’t very fun when you have to paddle by garbage.
But everyone on the crew was great and we had a great time

"A memorable holiday in Halong Bay"

The 3 day 2 night Orchid cruise to Halong Bay (mainly cruising in Lan Ha Bay) is a very memorable experience and we love the decoration, food and service on the boat and the scenery is absolutely spectacular.

"The cruise was splendid!"

Dining was rated 9 due to the brunch on the last day which seem to be rather normal in comparison to the lavish spread provided during breakfast, lunch and dinner.

"well organized"

The trip is well organized and activities are well planned to make a memorable trip. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The constant offer to order non-complimentary drink every meal made me a bit uncomfortable. Dining was a bit disappointing, I wish the cruise served more of Vietnam food than just fusion food with no nationality.

The cruise was so great! Better than we could have hoped and the free food tour was a really great glimpse into Hanoian food culture.
The activities sometimes felt rushed and the Thai chi was cancelled the morning I wanted to do it.
