Reviews

BestPrice's Review: 9.6/10

Following a 2-day-1-night inspection trip, I wholeheartedly endorse Orchid Cruise to anyone searching for a remarkable luxurious cruise experience. With its exceptional service from a dedicated and attentive staff, this 5-star ship provides a top-tier experience that caters to seniors, families, and couples alike.

 

Facilities & Amenities: 9.6/10

The cruise line continuously updates its 5-star offerings with fully equipped amenities and stylishly designed cabins. My Suite Balcony showcases modern decor and provides a spacious cabin size of 36m2, ideal for couples. However, it may be slightly tight for a family of three.

Pros

  • The best combination of elegance and simplicity I have ever seen
  • The elegant wooden furnishings, exquisite black-and-white photographs, and subtle details make it a perfect place to take pictures
  • Only 14 well-appointed cabins for an overnight cruise are suitable for guests seeking tranquility.
  • The roomy cabins feature exquisite decorations, including exotic wood and contemporary furnishings, several spaces, suitable for various passenger preferences.

Cons

  • A limited number of staterooms and a large public area for mingling
  • The cabins were relatively clean but worn down and showing their age

 

Food & Drinks: 9.5/10

Orchid Cruise is well-suited for a wide range of guests due to its diverse culinary offerings, ranging from vegan options to international dishes. However, the food is of a standard quality without any standout specialties.

Pros

  • The dining area offers delicious food and stunning interior views
  • American, Vietnamese, and Asian, and grill/BBQ meals are offered at the buffet and à la carte
  • The sundeck's sunset party offers an excellent opportunity for guests to mingle and sip cocktails

Cons

  • The food needs a significant upgrade both in quality and local cuisine

 

Activities: 9.7/10

I thought the 2-day itinerary was well-designed to enjoy Lan Ha Bay with moderate exploration as visiting one cave and spending time kayaking in a place. 

Pros

  • Under the time experience on the Orchid Cruise, I think the moment I kayaked in the Ao Ech Area was amazing due to the magnificence of nature and easily put my feet up
  • Exciting trips to Trung Trang cave and a variety of water activities both onboard and offshore brought me breathtaking scenery

Cons

  • Time kayaking in Ao Ech was only around 45 minutes, which was quiet short for everyone

 

Services: 10/10

During the entire trip, the restaurant's enthusiastic and highly trained staff provided us with exceptional service and support, ensuring our utmost satisfaction in every activity. Furthermore, the spa service on board was wonderful because of how professional skills the staff were. 

Pros

  • The cruise places a strong emphasis on providing expert service and top-notch hospitality to its passengers. 
  • In addition to a range of exciting events, guests can relax and enjoy a variety of high-quality facilities onboard.
  • Great spa service with friendly and careful staff.
