Overall it was a very good experience

Thank you so much with helping out in coordinating the overall trip. This is my review:
Our guide in the cruise, Mr Morning was an amazing person who shared a lot of vietnamese cultural info and other locations of Vietnam with us. He was also very accommodating and friendly. Alex, our travel coordinator… More

Good - Mr.Bieber
Not the best option

Unfortunately, I do not have good experience with this cruise. We had enjoyed Vietnamese food and service in hotels and restaurants earlier in our trip, but neither did we on Athena. With the exception of one or two kind and helpful employees, most of the personnel avoided visitors as much as they could.… More

Cruise overnight

We took an overnight cruise out of Halong Bay. Everything seemed quite professional and on schedule. The boat featured roughly 20 staterooms, ours was quite large and pleasant, with comfortable beds. The dishes were excellent, perhaps the finest we had in Vietnam. Also, the service was exceptional.… More

Ask a Question

We are planning to take the cruise on 23 sept. However, we would prefer vegetarian food (no fish and no fish oil) Is it possible for you to arrange vegetarian food on board during our stay? We are 4 adult and 4 kids


Hello Mayank,

The boat can arrange the vegetaria food for you and current we still have available cabin on your date. May I know the child age to send you best offer?

Hi I am planning to book a cruise in ha long during mid may next month! I am wondering if you offer snorkeling and scuba diving as part an activity we can do here especially during the stay at Cong Do?

@Jeremy Gan:

Regarding your request for the Halong Bay cruise, there is no scuba diving and snorkeling as part of the activities in Halong Bay

You can do that on the day tour in Nha Trang or Hoian if you visit these cities

Let me know if you need any information for Halong Bay cruise

Good afternoon, Good Morning I was trying to book the 3 day / 2 night Bai Tu Long Athena Cruise in a Premium Terrace Suite for the 19th October 2022 - on your web-site. I think that I did "book now" but I have not received any confirmation or request for payment. I am not sure whether this cruise is available on the 19th October, or whether we need to be flexible with our dates. I am also not sure whether we will want "transfer" from Hanoi and we may spend a few days in Cat Ba after our cruise, so we may not return to Hanoi. It would be great to get a little more information on what is possible Very best regards


The bus only pick up & see off in Hanoi old quarter, you can use the bus back Hanoi later but need to transfer to cruise pier to get the bus.
