BestPrice's Review: 9.6

Having experienced a 2-day-1-night inspection trip, I enthusiastically recommend Capella Cruise to anyone seeking a truly remarkable and luxurious cruise experience. 

The dedicated and attentive staff provide exceptional service, elevating this 5-star ship to a top-tier level. Whether you're traveling with family or as a couple, Capella Cruise caters to all, ensuring a memorable journey.


Facilities & Amenities - 9.6/10

With a commitment to providing a top-notch experience, the cruise line consistently updates its 5-star offerings with fully equipped amenities and stylishly designed cabins. Among these, the Oasis Suite stands out, boasting modern decor and a spacious cabin size of 32m2, making it an ideal choice for couples. However, it's worth noting that the cabin size may be slightly tight for a family with a kid.


  • All the rooms have private balconies or terraces, and a bathtub with an ocean view makes a spacious and airy space in the room.
  • Big Oasis Pool & Jacuzzi is especially suitable for children safely swimming while parents can freely enjoy different activities.
  • The Capella water slide is a highlight point more than other cruises in the bay.
  • Fitness room, poker and karaoke room for inside entertainment, and minigolf for outside entertainment. Never boring while on the cruise.
  • Two elevators for guests to easily move through cruise areas. 


  • The Spirit of the Sea Lounge's inside space is a bit less of a sitting area if you go on a rainy day. 


Food & Drinks - 9.7/10

Capella Cruise is well-suited for a wide range of guests due to its diverse culinary offerings, ranging from vegan options to international dishes. One of the most special things about the food on Capella Cruise that I love is how high-quality the ingredients are. 


  • As the staff said, the seafood is provided by the fishers at floating villages around.
  • The buffet lines are supplied enough for all guests and are hot with a diversity of kinds of seafood, meats, and desserts.
  • A set menu with two dishes for starters, a plate of seafood, the main course, and dessert is the best meal of the trip.


  • The first buffet taste is a bit salty.
  • The bar is still sparse kind of wine and concoctions.


Activities - 9.7/10

I could say Capella Cruise brought me one of the best Halong Bay itineraries ever since I had a chance to visit the two most iconic attractions in Lan Ha: Ao Ech with Dark & Bright Cave. Furthermore, the added activities such as spa time, playing board games, and high-class jacuzzi made me feel distinctive when compared to Capella with another cruise. 


  • The scheduled time is allocated reasonably, with a 2-day schedule that covers the most prominent points
  • The exhilarating excursions to Dark and Bright cave and the engaging water activities, offered me awe-inspiring vistas of breathtaking scenery.
  • It’s amazing to spend time in Sea Melody Theater and Cigar & Poker Club to play poker and board games. 


Services - 9.6/10

Throughout the trip, we were served and supported by the restaurant's enthusiastic and well-trained staff, bringing us the most satisfaction in each activity. A sailor gave us the best enjoyment when we slid into the sea from the cruise, despite being a bit scary.


  • Well-trained and dedicated staff from the restaurant, reception to spa and so on that make you feel comfortable and respected.  
  • Alongside an oversupply of thrilling events, guests can unwind and indulge in a wide array of high-quality onboard facilities.


The cruise package is included: Welcome drink, sunset party with refreshment during happy hours, luxury cabin with all facilities, all meals onboard, all activities in itineraries: kayaking, squid fishing, Tai Chi, bicycles or electric-carts at Viet Hai village, English speaking guide on board, all entrance fee & permission fee.

A shuttle bus will pick you up at around 8:00 and drops you off at 14:30 - 15:00 at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter. Please contact us to arrange the transfer if you stay outside the Old Quarter.

Yes, most of the cabins on Cappella cruise have private balcony meanwhile SKY TERRACE SUITE, LA SUITE DE CAPELLA have private terrace and OWNER SUITE has private sundeck.

Yes, there is a Jacuzzi Pool on Oasis Deck.

No, it is not. The poker club opens after dinner time and minimum of 4 passengers to operate.

Fantastic cruise in Vietnam

Capella Cruise gave us an amazing cruise experience. This was my first visit to Vietnam, and we were treated extremely well. I will definitely return to this cruise in the future. Gin, our butler, made sure we had a fantastic time and went to great lengths to make us feel comfortable.
