BestPrice Travel's Review

Cruise & Amenities

Pros 

  • Brand new cruise offers the most modern facilities, integrated all 5-star service massage & sauna, mini golf course, wines & cigars cellar that bring high-class experience to customers.
  • The cruise's infinity outdoor pool is larger than most others on the same route in Lan Ha Bay 
  • The room provides private balconies and a terrace equipped with tea set tables and a wide-range scenery view.

Cons

  • The pool temperature is around 28 degrees and in the winter is a bit cold for some people and children 

 

Itinerary 

Pros 

  • Overall, the itinerary is the same as almost other cruises to discover Lan Ha Bay natural destinations, however, the cruise offers auxiliary entertainment services which make the trip not boring like fitness, joining in the golf course, soaking in the Celestial Pool area, and exciting night activities as showing night movies. 

Cons

  • The one-night itinerary is a bit short. Would recommend two nights instead to fully admire all the further spots in Lan Ha Bay 

 

Foods & beverages

Pros

  • Food is one of the factors that make up this 5-star cruise class. They blend the Western food culture and the seafood flavors of Halong Bay in all meals. You will enjoy a 7-course Italian set menu for lunch and an 8-course dinner combining Asian and European flavors.

5-star cruise! We stayed on the cruise for two nights and it was ideal. The staff is fantastic, and there is nothing more you could want.

The trip was perfect!

With My Uyen at BestPrice Travel, we planned our Halong Bay cruise smoothly. She was really understanding in assisting us in locating the ideal cruise for the required dates. The trip went extremely well! My Uyen and the hotel worked it out together in order to ensure there was no issue when our pick-up time was changed at the last minute.

Incredible experience that is a must!

We had a great time. The best service was provided by Harry, Nar, and Alee; they were all amiable and considerate. The boat was exquisite, particularly the pool area. The cave tour and kayaking were fantastic.
The food was very well prepared and very delicious.
Our only regret was not being able to stay longer!
