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.

Hello, We are making a booking with Paloma Cruise for Halong Bay. When booking, you can include a round trip pick up service titled "Hanoi - Halong - Hanoi 4 seats." I just want to verify that this service is door-to-door. Meaning, will they pick us up at our hotel, Skyline Tower (4 Đặng Dung, Quán Thánh, Ba Đình, Hà Nội) and drop us off there? Thank you, Robert
Dear Robert Lehmann, Thanks for contacting BestPrice Travel. Yes the services 4 seats private transfer is round way included pick you up from Hanoi to Halong Bay and back to Hanoi after finish. We are confirmed that will pick you up at Syline Tower. Regards, BestPrice
Hi I am planning to book an overnight halong bay cruise with Paloma cruise for 2 people on the 25th October returning 26th October however I have to catch a flight to Cambodia at 4.30 pm on the 26th. I am wondering if it is possible to arrange a private car to drop us off straight to the airport after we dock at Hon Gai Harbour. Would that be possible and is that enough time to get to the airport at least by 2pm to catch a 4.30 flight? I would like to know before I wil book the flight. Thank you. Regards Frances
Hi If we can arrange a private car take you directly from Hon Gai Pier to the Airport. The expected time to be at the Airport is 15h00, it cost 75USD/ 4 seat private car Cheers
Hi i am planning to visit vietnam in may,2019 and wanted to know doyou people serve indian vegetarian food on the cruise
Dear Shashidharchannappa, Yes vegestarian food is available on Paloma Cruise. When is your prefer date so i could check available for you.
Hi! My plane is scheduled to land at 825am at Hanoi Airport. Would I have sufficient time to make it for the cruise on the same day? Do you arrange for transport from the airport?
Hi If your flight landing at 8h20, so we could arrange a private car run directly to Halong Bay- Paloma Cruise However, we will not take the responsibility if your flight delay, since the cruise will depart from the pier at 12h30, you have to pay extra to take the speedboat to cruise if you are late, so it is better if you book the cruise in the next day, or you book the cruise depart from Got Pier ( Peony Cruise, Era Cruise....) which only 3 hours transfer from Hanoi Airport to Pier Please advise how many people in your group, and the departure date, then we will send you the quotation Cheers
