Amazing Hermes Cruise

Great cruise. Incredibly well-prepared and informative about the bay. Some locations are guided by crew members as well. The cave was truly magnificent, and the excursions were enjoyable. The team was helpful with our reservation and onboard service. The ship is modern, and the accommodations are fantastic with balconies. Delicious supper and brunch. Good value, in my opinion.

Excellent Ha long Bay overnight cruise

Hermes is a fantastic option for a peaceful, secluded overnight getaway in Ha Long Bay. The cabins are big, with only 10+. I was fortunate to reserve the Presidential Suite, which has a fantastic view, separate indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, and all-around window doors. Adore it.
Janet, the sales person at BestPrice, is very knowledgeable and kind.
