Large and fine cruise ship

We booked with BestPrice Travel and received 1st-rate service. Originally scheduled for 2023 but has been delayed now. Most Halong Bay tours are quite similar in terms of scenery. We selected Era since its accommodations were larger and finer than most other boats at comparable costs, and we were extremely pleased with our decision.
