BestPrice's Reviews - 9.7/10

  • Inspection date: 1st & 2nd, November, 2023
  • BestPrice Travel Inspector: Ms. Nhung Dang

Paradise Elegance gave me one of the most worthwhile experiences on a Halong Bay 5-star cruise with outstanding amusement and cuisine. It is worth a try for anniversary couples and newlyweds to indulge in romantic settings of music performances, fine dining, and sunset hours.

Facilities & Amenities - 9.5/10

Overall, there are abundant amenities for wellness and entertainment onboard. If the Jacuzzi Pool and Le Piano Lounge are perfect for outgoing people, the library and La Parfum Spa give private space for introverts. However, my Deluxe Balcony Suite has a downside due to its narrow space (only 25m2).


  • Large jacuzzi pool with a capacity of up to 10 adults
  • 4 separate spa rooms offer the best privacy and relaxation
  • Well-maintained and up-to-date facilities in aesthetic luxuriant design


  • Small and cramped cabins, only 35m2 for the Captain's View Terrace Suite
  • Outdated bathrooms, not all cabins are equipped with bathtub

Overnight Twin Beds Acommodation

Restricted area for Deluxe and Executive Suite


Food & Drinks - 9.8/10

A plus of Paradise Elegance is the culinary experience with a Michelin-starred menu. At a reasonable cost, I had a chance to enjoy the first-rate cuisine of Western-Asian fusion at a 5-course dinner and French-style canapés at a sunset party. Regarding the buffet menu and beverages, all are flavorsome and eye-catching.


  • A wide range of Vietnamese and Western buffet option
  • Delicious dishes and seafood, especially the main course "Pan-seared sea bass fillet" at dinner
  • Diverse experience to serve BBQ dinner or private dining on sundeck (upon request)


  • Expensive drinks, limited options for cocktails and mocktails

Private Dining Upon Request

Private dining on sundeck upon request


Activities & Itinerary - 9.6/10

Following the classic Halong Bay itinerary, Paradise Elegance takes advantage to maximize the number of visit attractions. On my 2-day-1-night trip, I visited 3 sightseeing spots with different kinds of activities: hiking, kayaking, swimming, and caving. In a nutshell, this cruise program is great for active travelers and nature lovers.


  • Well-planned itinerary with more attractions than other cruises
  • Amazing live music and dance by a Filipino band for night activity
  • Various types of activities at limestone cave, beach, water cave, and floating village
  • Modern speedboat with a large capacity of 198 seats and vending machines


  • Additional charge for kayaking and bamboo boating

Service - 10/10

As a 5-star international cruise line, Paradise Cruises Group always goes above and beyond with attentive services and professional staff from Vietnamese and Filipino crews onboard. Particularly, I appreciate the dedicated butler services and want to say special thanks to Ms. Korine.
