"The boat that was booked (Peony Cruises) was exceptional accommodation."

I felt the 'set meals' on the boat could have been better - although it was nice to have a 5 course meal, many of the courses contained food I would not normally eat (preferences) and therefore I didn't feel that they were that great. My favourite food night was the Vietnamese food night, as we travelled… More

"My son Liam and I enjoyed the cruise"

The day 2 itinerary seemed confusing, though... Amy said the caves were really cramps in some places and you would have to crawl through... so I decided not to take Liam on that outing. She also mentioned that if people had problems with their back or knees, she highly advised them to ride with the… More

"Stunning, beautiful and a most do"

My husband I had a two night cruise around Lan Ha Bay, basically just as stunning as Halong but considerably less boats (by the hundreds) .we thoroughly enjoyed our time the staff were very attentive, the only thing that let us down was water was not free, which was disappointing, though overall a definite must.

"Amazing Trip"

My wife and I made the cruise as the last stop of our Honeymoon and it was a great decision. The crew went above and beyond to meet my wife's dietary restrictions and they set up a wonderful table for our first dinner. Our bedroom was incredibly comfortable and we had an amazing time! Thank you so much Peony! Special thank you to Diego and David.
