The cruise sailed smoothly and well. We were extremely satisfied. The cruise is luxurious, clean and elegant with modern facilities. Some function room got ancient design. Set menu and buffet breakfast were both great. My lover was interested in some vegan dishes they prepared for him. Nice cruise
The services on the trip were excellent, and I loved them. The employees are friendly and helpful. I want to thank Peter for helping me find this house. I'll undoubtedly return here with my family to enjoy it.
We are a group of 6. This is the second time we have been here under the support of BestPrice Travel Vietnam. They suggested us sail on Hermes Cruise which is the modest and newest cruise. We discovered Titop, Maze and other areas with some interesting activities. This cruise wasn't really satisfying but it could adapt to our needs.

The cruise is stunning, opulent, and cozy. We feel at home because to the room's size, airiness, comfort, and cleanliness. The wait staff is really attentive and compassionate, and the services are excellent as well. Beautiful limestone and coastal landscape surrounds Ha Long Bay. The events are well planned. It's wonderful to be surrounded by loved ones and friends while enjoying afternoon tea, bathing in the jacuzzi under the starry sky, and viewing the stars on the Sun Deck to unwind from the day's commotion. Delicious cuisine at all three meals, and the food on board leaves me feeling full. Less
Driver arrived on time, comfy vehicle, interesting English-speaking tour guide, enough food on the boat, and clear directions for travelers.
Thank you so much
