Tour Guide Mr Tu very friendly and helpful, speaks fluent English. Quite a long journey drive from our Hotel to Halong Bay. Meals provided on cruise. Our cabin room is spacious and clean. A beautiful natural wonder with islands and islets a must visit place and this cruise trip totally relaxing as I can spent a night on board. Price is reasonable as it covers the 2 days meals and activities. Choose to stay overnight on board instead of 1 day trip.

This trip was a total downer as we were not provided what was promised to us. Here is the deception: 1. The actual boat on our trip was not the same as on the picture. When we asked why?, we were told that there are different categories of vessels and ours was a lower class. As a sidenote, THAT would've been important to know ahead of time! 2. The confirmation that we printed out said that we'd be returned back to our hotel by mid day I think it specifically said 2pm We came back at 6. This impacted our next street tour! 3. The room was rank with the smell of sewage. Horrible. They were aware of it as they had little containers of scents by the bathroom door. 4. We were promised free wifi. This was extremely important as we were dealing with a death back home. No wifi. Then the tour manager explained that we only would get wifi when we anchored overnight. Well still zero wifi in our room! The only area to get wifi was in the dining hall. I stayed in the dining hall as the crew rolled out their bed rolls all around the dining table, closed the lights and started to sleep. Unreal. Surreal! When I left to go to the bathroom in my room they locked me out of the dining hall. Not nice! 5. Free on board culinary class was a joke! The class was how to roll up a spring roll. Wow and the chef was rolling his eyes in annoyance! Waste. Of. Time. 6. The main cruise dinner was something of a joke. The meal was served --communal style on one long dining room table. As the last dish that the server delivered was put on the table there were hollowed out pineapples placed on the table and then ALL the lights were turned off. The -- in a horribly loud volume, we were all subjected to one of Karen Carpenter's hits from the 70's. OOooooh. That was stupid. 7. Before leaving, we were given envelopes to tip the staff. Also as part of the 'Sit-here-and-give-us-your-money plan, we were given a review of the ship and it's services. Most people gave the ship an okay score...well, those who did not have to endure sleeping in sewage smelling rooms and had wifi. When we got off the ship, that's when the complaints started to arise. I was present when the tour guide got hammered with complaints by the guests for making us sit and wait for our bus for shy of 2 hours while all the other tour companies promptly got their folks on busses!!! 8. And if that doesn't make you rethink the entire trip, then enjoy.

Great value!! The cruise was very nice. The food is fantastic and there is a lot of it. The accommodations are also very nice. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the ship. Tom our tour guide was probably the highlight of the trip. He was very informative and did a great job at making sure the group knew what was going on. I would recommend this cruise very highly.

Nicholas S

The name of this tour perfectly describes the quality. JUNK. The boat was old and sad. The crew seemed tired, unenthusiastic, and not very helpful. I would not recommend this tour to anyone. I am not sure how the reviews are so good. A few things that stood out: We were provided with one small water bottle each as we arrived. Anything more than that needed to be purchased. Since the water from the sink was undrinkable and there were no beverages served with any of the meals except for the small glass of juice upon arrival, we were forced to pay for the water to drink with our included meals. The shower completely shutdown after 2 minutes after entering which was very inconvenient. When I spoke with the tour guide Kent about the situation that same morning, he was more defensive than apologetic, insisting that it works. The food was bad, and the whole experience left A LOT to be desired. Great scenery and nice kayaking, but all the cons seem to overshadow anything positive.

Wolfgang N

I am not sure if I would take this cruise again. The ship was old and tired. The door to my room did not close at times - because of moisture, I was told. It's a cruise ship. Moisture should not be a surprise. We were taken to a cave to tour. The guide did not accompany us - therefore no explanations of any kind. There is nothing to see. It appears to be a total waste of time.

The boat wasn't very clean, the taps were broken or unwieldy and the flush didn't always work unless you asked for them to pump more water. The food wasn't very good either - very gloopy though the seafood was fresh. Our guide Jacky was good however and Haalong bay was of course stunning.

Yes this is a tourist desire but well worth it to soak in the beauty of this unique place. If you're lucky enough to get Tom as a tour guide, he made the trip. He's so informative and just Awesome to be with. The food on the boat was delicious. Modest accommodations with a comfortable bed.

Tommy our guide was superb and made every effort to be informative and helpful. He did need to slow down to be understood and we British interpreted for some Europeans who though they had good English struggled with the pace at times. Food was supeb cabins were lovely. Kayaking was fun. Overall very enjoyable and decent value. BEWARE: lunch at 10:30 on the 2nd day is a little much. If you've seen a cave don't waste your time going to this teeming with people and underwhelming

Good boat, good outings and good food - weather uncontrollable, but didn't stop us. Very friendly staff but very limited English. They could make the bus ride there and back a little more comfortable, maybe show a video from UNESCO to get an overview. Truly glad that I went.
