Reviews

BestPrice's Reviews: 9.5/10

  • Inspection date: November 2022
  • Cruise: Sena Cruise
  • BestPrice Travel inspector: Mr. Huan Nguyen

After an inspection trip lasting 2 days, I highly recommend Sena Cruise for mid-range travelers who want an authentic trip in Lan Ha Bay. This cruise has a unique design with classic wooden interiors, plus handmade bamboo and rattan decorations.

Cabins & Facilities: 9.4/10

The facilities of the cruise are still in good condition, the decor was gorgeous with many handmade products. My Deluxe Balcony Cabin was pretty and well-equipped. However, there are some dated facilities.

Pros

  • Traditional-styled design with wooden base furniture creates a delicate ambiance.
  • Gorgeously designed Moonlight restaurant with rattan lights, perfect for pictures.
  • The cruise has a library, 1 indoor & 1 outdoor restaurant, which is rare for a 4-star cruise.
  • All rooms have a private balcony and a nice layout, making the cabins bright and airy.

Airy Cabin with Huge Window

Spacious and Pretty Terrace Suite

Cons

  • All cabins on board don’t have bathtubs, only standing showers.

 

Foods & Drinks: 9.3/10

The menu includes many Vietnamese and European foods. The quality is good but nothing was outstanding for me, except for the seafood. The drinks are also average.

Pros

  • Especially great seafood and fresh local ingredients.
  • Lunches and dinners so you don’t have to worry about the food running out like eating a buffet.
  • Have a different vegetarian menu that can be changed as the customer requests.

Cons

  • Only breakfast has a buffet so the options during lunch and dinner meals may be a bit limited for some guests.

Activity & Itinerary: 9.4/10

Overall, the activities in the Sena Cruises were quite amusing. I especially liked the boat trip to Dark & Bright Cave as the scenery was so breathtaking. Overall, the activities were pleasant and suitable for many travelers.

Pros

  • Spectacular bamboo boat trip to the stunning Dark & Bright Cave
  • Interesting kayaking time in Tra Bau as you can freely immerse yourself in the pristine nature.
  • Various services on board so you don’t get bored: karaoke, squid fishing, spa, library, bar, etc.

Cons

  • The 2d1n tour is short and doesn't explore Lan Ha Bay much.

Services: 10/10

The service on the Sena Cruises is exceptional, with outstanding staff from the cruise manager to the regular crew. There is nothing to criticize about how this ship provides services to its passengers.

The tour guide is attentive and knowledgeable, and most employees are also highly informed about Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay.

 

Sena Cruise Reviews on TripAdvisor

  • Number of reviews: 214 
  • Excellent: 200 /214 reviews

Generally, Sena on TripAdvisor is praised for its fantastic services, with many compliments on the guide, cruise staff, boutique design, and comfortable cabin. 

However, there are some complaints about the average food, poor sewage system and the rushed schedule on the 2-day tour.

Overall, this cruise has a good ratio of positive reviews, up to 99%, which is amazing.

Halong Bay tour

Hang Moon perfectly organized our trip to Ha Long.
We traveled from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi with stops at Hoi Ann & Hue and finished with a 3-day cruise in Ha Long Bay.
I can't thank Hang Moon enough. She made everything work fluently.
We are already planning our next trip to Vietnam and will book Hang Moon for her help.
Thank you so much!

2 Day Tour of Halong Bay

Best Price Travel offers a good service at a reasonable cost.
Our 2 days in Halong Bay, ably organized by Jane Pham, were intriguing and pleasurable. We had little contact with Best Price while in Vietnam but were well looked after. There were times when we didn't quite know what to expect on the following… More

We have some questions: - Transfer : We would like pickup in Hanoi, but we are heading south to HCMC when the cruise is over. Therefore, we need transfer to the Hai Phong Airport. Can this be possible? - Rooms: We are 6 persons, but we would like 4 separate rooms. We could also do with 3 rooms, but 1 of us will then need a separate room. What will the cost be? - Food : 2 of us have food allergies , and can not eat fish or seafood. Will there be meat options for all the meals?

Questions: 1 Do you have more details of 3/2 cruise itinerary? 2 What are three peach areas? 3 How much is the transfer from Hanoi - Halong- Hanoi? 4 How much is the transfer from Hanoib- Holong - Tam coc? 5 we are interested in deluxe balcony in November, what is the percentage of service tip usually in Vietnam?

@Dun:

Hi! Pls find the answer below:

1. You can see more details at our 3d2n Sena Cruise itinerary 

2. It is one of the most stunning area in the Bay with 3 brother islands, calm water, and lovely beach.

See more about Three Peach Area

3. The transfer fee for HN - HL - HN returned trip is from $40/person

4. The transfer fee for Hanoi - Halong - Tam Coc is depended on types of transportation you choose. We suggest you should book a full package tour included transfer for better value

5. The tip is from around $5 - $10 but isn't compulsory in Vietnam culture, so only tip when you are really satisfy and happy with the services

Sena is newer than Orchid, but it's smaller so it's only 4-star standard.

Pls check your email for more information form our travel consultant.

I'd like to know if you have a 2 day, one-night cruise in Sena Cruise for 2 people on Dec 10? We want to request transportation/transfer from the Hotel in Hanoi to Halong Bay and from Halong Bay to the airport in Hanoi on the return. And the price for this transfer service is?

@Mary:

Hi! How many cabins do you want to book? Sena has only a few room on Dec 10, from $310/cabin. About the transfer service, Hanoi - Halong is $20/person (1-way), and from Halong Bay to Airport we provide private car and the price is different depending on the car type. Our consultant has just contacted you, please give us more details abt your trip so we can give you a full quotation.
