  • One of the rare cruises has a twin sundeck with a jacuzzi, creating a much larger space to unwind.

Ambassador Cruise Halong Bay

Overall the 2-day trip was the perfect amount of time for me on Halong Bay. It sort of gets the same old same old after that.
Beautiful sightseeing, fun excursions, and a staff and support team that makes you feel comfortable and safe. The food was delicious and surprised my entire group.
Janet was excellent at communicating with my group, as well as setting up all the logistics for the trip.

Janet's contributions were much needed

Thanks to Janet's great support, I can have a wonderful trip with my wife to celebrate her birthday without any incidents.

She also arranged and organized a birthday surprise for my wife, which delighted her. I will contact Janet next year.
