"Cruise was great. "

Few small disappointments with our lead guide on the boat (Hardly saw him at all during the 3 days)
The food, activities and everyone else on the boat were great. No complaints at all.
Again, the lead on the boat wasn’t there at all and even told us he felt asleep on the 2 day and arrived very late during dinner.
And BTW, both musiciens were amazing and very good

"Everything about the cruise was fantastic - the staff, the meals (oh my god so much food), cabin and scenery. "

One activity where we had the opportunity to ride a bike through Cat Ba island was cool but there was no real destination.
Half the group rode bikes (including myself and i enjoyed that) but the other half took the open bus/electric vehicle. When we arrived, there was nothing to see or do (except buy… More

"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

"Amazing scenery"

Our cabin was lovely with a balcony and gorgeous bathroom. The food was delicious and Lee our waiter very attentive.
