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.

The issues here being two day/one night cruise doesn't allow for much free time activities - eg. use of kayaks. The two stop overs - first to the floating village and second to the caves, weren't guided as seemed to be happening with other companies - I would recommend in future that the staff provide information about what we are looking at, etc.

We were picked up on time and driven to Ha Long Bay where we were given a welcome drink before boarding the boat. The crew welcomed us and gave a briefing before a tasty lunch of rice rolls, prawns, steamed clams and other dishes. We then visited an island where we could climb all the steps to the top… More

Cruise was good. Cabin was nice and staff were quite friendly even though most do not speak English. Cruise activity was good. There is alway many things to do.

Food quality was bad. Buffet was of poor quality. Dinner a la carte was tasteless. Breakfast was limited.
