"The cruise was fantastic"

The upgrade was fabulous
It is indeed a five star cruise
I am sure the other one would not have been this good. They had smaller rooms
The food was excellent
And they spoiled my wife with vegetarian choices
She was very happy as well
Yes. Activities were good
My daughters swum in the ocean
It was a first for them. I mean in the middle from a boat

"Fantastic experience!"

It's very helpful to have a reliable Travel Consultant, that can advise in booking several parts of the journey to Indochina. I really enjoyed the trip with Paloma Cruise to Bai Tu Long, even the weather was not perfect. The kajaking and visiting the fishing village was even great. Thank you very much for your recommendation and help in booking the trip.

"we absolutely ADORED the trip to Halong Bay!"

I was already asked to do a review and I gave it a 10 out of 10!
The whole booking experience, cruise and everything and everybody around it totally exceeded our expectations. we were treated really well and the food was amazing. Best part was of course Halong Bay itself, and that they cruised in a less busy area. We will never forget this experience and will come back.Thank you Paloma

"Lovely Cruise!"

Every single thing that Paloma has arranged are so lovely.
But, no wifi connection. And the bathroom’s door cannot completely be closed, so people in bedroom may take a peek.

Asked by Tracy Wedding, March 23, 2019
Hi, there will be 3 of us from New Zealand wanting to do a 1 night cruise on the 4 August 2019. We fly into Hanoi airport arriving at 9.45am. What times do your boat cruises leave? Transfer from airport to Halong Bay to get boat? Thanks, Regards Tracy
Tracy Wedding, March 25, 2019
Hi The Paloma Cruise depart from pier at 12h00, so it is not enough time to transfer to the pier if you arrive Hanoi Airport at 9h45am ( It takes 3.5 hours transfer) So it is high recommend to book the Paloma Cruise in the next days Please advise departure date !! Cheers
