Fantastic stay!

As part of our honeymoon, my husband and I spent one night on a luxury cruise. We slept in a cabin on the top deck, and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time. We wished we could have stayed another night so we could make use of the amenities on board while unwinding and… More

Excellent itinerary

The boat offered the activities I wanted: kayaking, TiTop Island, and surprise cave. It featured a pretty nice jacuzzi and a very adorable balcony. It was a luxury cruise with excellent meals and amazing personnel. It does not enjoy parties and keeps a greater distance from the other ships. At the locations to be visited, our boat was the first to arrive.

Amazing

Everything was flawless and precise. The pickup was on schedule, and the procedure was quite methodical. The cruise was spotless and well-kept. The day had been meticulously planned. The meal was delicious, and the staff was kind and accommodating.

@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.
