"Very nice accommodations provided. "

The boat was quiet, which helped with falling asleep at night. The small boat allowed everyone to get to know each other well, providing close intimacy. The views were great.

Cruise…pretty, romantic, good food, nice room, there was supposed to be karaoke and dancing but it never happened. No one was supervising the squid fishing activity. More activities on the boat would have been good.

"Need to improve"

Cruise quality: 8 beautiful surroundings
Food: 6 more than enough food but wasn’t too good
Cabin: 6 we had a good bit of cockroaches and insects in our room
Staff: 9 all friendly and helpful especially Viet
Activities: 3. Cave and beach stops we’re very crowded and there should be some coordination between boats so not everyone arrives at same time

"Good trip"

Food and guides were fantastic. Enjoyed kayaking especially morning kayak to a cave with smalll group. Boat very clean. Over all loved the cruise. Will recommend it to others.
Room too small for a triple - no room to move. Third day cave was not great, too busy.

"Halong was very good!"

Arrival in Halong was a bit messy, but that is just the way it is, I guess. Too many people to manage, that's part of the deal
In the bay we enjoyed a lot, I think our boat was a bit old, but we knew it because we booked one of the cheapest options... Food was very good and plenty. The crew was very… More

"Good boat"

Food was good, Tour guides were great and had excellent English, it was good not having many people on the one boat.
No safety briefing once on board. Kayak “tour” was much longer and harder than indicated. Not enough space for all passengers to participate in cooking class.

As soon as I booked the tour, the person from BestPrice - Thompson got in touch with me through WhatsApp and explained me all the details which… More
