Short and sweet, the food was fine,

Upon arriving on our boat I could tell it was old. None of the crew members since being picked up had any real identification that they worked for Phoenix Cruiser,all wore a variety of plane shirts. This being said there was no identifications as to a dining crew, caption, tour guide etc. We were told… More

Transportation was great! They even drove us back to the train station instead of the airport. The Phoenix cruise personnel were all wonderful and meals were impressive.

Overall the Phoenix Cruise was very satisfying. The food being the best part of the tour. Probably best food we had in Vietnam.

The rooms were quite small and had a funny smell to it. We didnt bother bringing it up to the crew because we were only staying there for 1 night but other than that everything was perfect.

Good food, motivated and friendly guide

We had too much waiting time in the cold after the cruise on the peer waiting for the bus to pick us up and bring us back to Hanoi (about one hour). Activities a bit further from the tourist hot spots would be nice.

I think that it was very clear, that Halong Bay is a very big moneymachine. On the second day, we were on a dayboat for 7-8 hours. It was possibly to kayak. And we thought it was an option, so if you would not kayak the boat would sail you around. But NO! We just sat there for hours while the others were in kayaks...

Excellent in every way. We will certainly recommend you to our friends.

Overall an awesome experience! We all were very satisfied and happy with all parts of the cruise and tour.

The only thing we could think of for improvement is: Allowing for longer kayaking with some more freedom to explore (of course to a higher price if necessary)
