BestPrice Travel's Overall Rating: 9.0/10

After a thorough inspection, Victory Star shows its service as the best aspect, which is outstanding and satisfies many guests that left many good reviews. With its many cabins and top-notch service, this cruise seems to be the best suite for family trips. However, Victory Star Cruises still needs to improve its food & beverage aspect to be suitable for its 5-star standard.

Have a good time

This cruise was an incredible experience for me. The boat is very beautiful and the landscapes are breathtaking. We were lucky to be a small group (only 20 people on the boat). The staff takes great care of us. The food is excellent. The cabins are spacious and well-appointed.
Really nothing to complain… More

A nice vacation

Everything is perfect, although it is really less than 24 hours, and I would like to enjoy it more. Maybe I will book a 3-day cruise the next time I visit Vietnam.
Our room was the Presidential Suite; it was very clean, it smelled of jasmine as soon as you entered, and the bed was very comfortable.… More

Excellent - Sandorne K

Visiting Halong Bay was a fantastic experience that should not be missed while in Vietnam. The Victory Star trip is stunning, with superb service and gorgeous scenery, especially at sunset. I strongly suggest this tour to any of those who wish to see Halong Bay in a unique way.
P.S. Avoid traveling on weekends because it was really busy.
