our cabins were fabulous. Meals were excellent. Staff was most helpful. Our only, minor, complaint would be having a half hour stop, each way, on the trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay and back.

I wanted to say thank you for organising our trips we had a great time on both of them. My favourite was Mai Chau this is a beautiful place and wish i had more time there.

kindness of all the staff; rooms and bathrooms are well equipped and large; good comfort; food on board is excellent; safety on board; and the weather was with us!

Appreciate the quick reply to our queries.

Staff was friendly but not well trained enough. Unable to locate any staff when required assistance. Sales manager (person in charge) was not answering questions when we ask him. Night activities were not entertaining at all.

Pelican Cruise was great. I am glad I did the 2 night cruise and not 1 night. It was very well organised. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Ship was lovely and food was delicious

The staff and crew were very kind and helpful, particularly the manager Josep who was just a pleasure. We are also very grateful to Pelican Cruises for giving us an incredible upgrade- the private deck of the Royal Suite was one of the highlights of our trip.

The power in our cabin kept tripping and thus resulted in a very hot night sleep and 2 dead cell phones, which in turn prevented us from being able to capture any of our days experiences on camera. This did not by any means ruin our trip, but it was definitely a disappointment. Another critique I have… More
