Highlight of our entire trip! Highly recommended with a min. 3D 2N stay, if not for the hiccups during our canoe session, it will be a perfect 10 from us!

Due to the packed itinerary and especially dealing with children. The canoeing is too rush and poorly organized as not all children in our group knows how to canoe which cause some anxiety among the parents.

Overall it was a great experience. I would definitely take the cruise again though.

The only small thing is that I would have been happier with more authentic Vietnamese food instead of American food.

I recommend this cruise. A brand new ship was very luxurious, quiet and comfortable. My room was spacious. The crew members were friendly and polite. The course of the cruise was less crowded. On the way to the cave I could watch wild monkeys. I really enjoyed the cruise.
