Need to improve

Overall food on board was only average/ poor, wifi poor and bathroom shower was very hot cannot control the shower temperature and entertainment average as all cruise operators provide the same activities, should have brought us to the bigger cave in Ha Long.

Very well organized

Fantastic trip!

Mum and I had a fantastic trip on the calypso cruiser. Everything was 10 out of 10. Can't say a bad word about the trip. Also thanks for meeting us at our hotel before we went. Very impressed with the service.

Besides Karoake and kayaking there really were no other activities. The tour leaders and staff were nice but there wasn't any official introductions to the crew.

8.1 Very good

Service and food was great. Many thanks to our guide, Jackie. He, the Captain and the crew's energy and dedication were the highlight of our experience.

I feel that that there could have been more activities planned within the duration as there were some pockets of time with nothing much to be engaged in. Also, prior to the cruise, I did request that my payment would be in USD and I would like to receive my change in USD as well. However, the staff… More

: An excellent way to spend a relaxing time on the cruise, especially the kayaking and caves. It was also peaceful to visit the Fishing village and seeing how the locals live. Also I was extremely suprised at how they really took cqare of the vegetarians like myself and they really went out of their way to cater for them. I felt I was treat like the queen.
