Reviews

BestPrice's Review: 9.5/10

  • Inspection date: 8th & 9th, June 2024
  • BestPrice Travel Inspector: Mr. Huan Nguyen & Mr. Anh

Following a 2-day-1-night inspection trip, I wholeheartedly endorse Orchid Cruise to anyone searching for a remarkable 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 & Cabins: 9.2/10

The cruise line continuously updates its 5-star offerings with fully equipped amenities on board and stylishly designed cabins. My Premium Suite Balcony showcases modern decor and provides a spacious cabin size of 36m2, ideal for groups of two.

Pros

  • Prettily decorated sky bar, making it a great place to take pictures.
  • The jacuzzi located on the ship's bow, is one of the best spots to enjoy the scenery and relax. 
  • The elegant wooden furnishings, exquisite wall art, and well-thought-out layout create a spacious and pleasant cabin area.
  • Fairy large bathroom inside the cabin with clean sea-view bathtub.

Cons

  • A limited area for mingling, lack of entertainment areas for nighttime activities.
  • The wooden hallway shows its age and has a squeaky sound when walking by.
  • The bathroom is separated by a blind only, so it was not private enough.

Food & Drinks: 9.4/10

Orchid Cruise is well-suited for a wide range of guests due to its diverse culinary offerings, ranging from vegan options to international dishes. The decorations and service from the staff take the dining experience to the next level for me.

Pros

  • The dining area offers delicious food and stunning interior views.
  • The seafood dishes are fresh and very well-seasoned.
  • Dishes for dinner are very well-prepared with pretty decor, focusing on the Vietnamese traditional style.
  • During my stay, there are two Happy Hours, one during sunset and one at night.

Cons

  • The buffet leans on European cuisine and lacks Asian dishes.
  • The drink needs an upgrade in quality for its price.

Activities: 9.5/10

I thought the 2-day itinerary was well-designed to enjoy both Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island with various activities for a limited time. This is one of a few cruises that included Cat Ba Island in the 2-day itinerary.

Pros

  • The moment I kayaked in the Dark & Bright Cave Area was amazing due to the magnificence of nature here.
  • Exciting trips to Trung Trang Cave in Cat Ba Island. It has a unique structure with many spots for amazing photos.
  • A variety of activities in many attractions even for a 2-day itinerary: kayaking in Dark & Bright Cave, swimming in Tra Bau, and visiting Trung Trang Cave.

Cons

  • There are not many things to do at night, so active travelers may get bored.

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. 

Pros

  • The cruise places a strong emphasis on providing expert service and top-notch hospitality to its passengers. 
  • The staff is very quick and always willing to help. They pull the chair for us every time we get up from the table during the meal.
  • Proactive and adaptable care to assist with all requests and solve unanticipated situations
