We booked the one night tour. Everything was perfect arranged. The rooms were very nice and we had an aditional bed. Of course, as in the most cruise ship, there is not a lot space for lugagge. But that was ok. The activites offered a wide range: cayaking, stop of an island with a superb view, visiting of a cave, morning thai chi ... . The food was exellent and the staff very friendly and well organised. We were lucky that we had nice weather. Thank you to all of you.

Our tour guide picked us up from out hotel and after a 4 hour coach ride we arrived at the harbour. Our initial thought was the boat looked "tired" ... however, it didn't detract whatsoever. We were looked after from the minute we boarded to the minute we left. The boat and cabin were all wood, the cabin's bed was SOOO comfortable. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all delicious and the crew all worked hard. One of our party had a birthday and were surprised by a carved out fruit shell with a candle. The Thai Chi class at 6.30am was excellent, the first time we had tried this, followed by a delicious breakfast. The trip to the caves was excellent. Would highly recommend.

We boarded the Flamingo 2D1N cruise during a recent trip at the end of September 2018 and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made in our Hanoi trip. We were lucky to have the friendly and knowledgeable Johnny as our tour guide, who spoke great English and was humorous and friendly, having told us he had been a tour guide for 8 years. The whole package included transfer from Hanoi to Halong Bay and back to Hanoi on the second day, with halfway stop at Hong Ngoc where visitors could see various handicrafts and souvenirs made by disabled people. We were surprised by the amount of food being served (course meal style) and they all tasted nice. We were lucky to have both rooms with private balconies and both rooms were huge, spacious, and clean. On the first day of the itinerary, we had kayaking along the crystal clear water before heading to the TiTop Island to take photo of the whole bay. Granted there were a lot of other cruises in the area but it was expected since Halong Bay was a famous UNESCO World Heritage Site and was in the itinerary for most people visiting Hanoi. We were given chances to try squid fishing during the night after the dinner as well although unfortunately Johnny told us it was the low season for squid and the chances of catching a squid was 2% based on his experience. On the second day, after breakfast we headed to the Cave of Surprise, where Johnny further regaled us on the features and history of the cave. The cave, just like Titop Island, would be full of people since we were told that all the 2D1N cruises practically had the similar itinerary. The boat sailed back to the port and the same bus then drove us back to Hanoi. In overall, it has been a great and wonderful experience in Flamingo Cruise.

We went for 2D1N Ha Long Bay tour on August 23. The package includes: (a) first day: pickup from Old Quarter, overnight stay, food, 1-hour kayaking, Ti Top island visit, sunset, squid fishing and stargazing (b) sunrise watching, breakfast, Surprise Cave, brunch and transport back to Hanoi and drop-off at Hanoi. Our tour guide Johnny speaks good English and is very concise and clear with instructions so we are always well-informed of the activities. There are only 15 guests on the cruise so it is relatively quiet. We got free upgrade to deluxe room with private balcony so it is a plus! For every meal, we were served at least 3-course and more. The food tasted good and had nice presentation. On top of that, the cruise is clean and good. And the staffs are very helpful and friendly. we enjoyed our trip a lot.

We have decided to take this cruise at a very last minute, after arriving to Hanoi and have booked it trough a local agency just over 24 hours in advance. Transportation to and from Ha Long bay was included in the price and the pick up was a few minutes ahead of schedule. We've arrived to Ha Long on time and were taken to the cruise ship with minimum waiting. There we were met with friendly crew, that showed us to our cabins, which were cosy, clean and air conditioned. The cruise included lunch, dinner, breakfast and brunch. Food was plenty and tasty. Apart from amazing scenery of Ha Long bay, other activities included kayaking (or pearl farm visit), Titov island and beach visit, cooking class (Vietnamese spring rolls) and squids fishing on the first day. We have started the second day with tai chi and continued with a visit of Surprise cave. Throughout the journey, our great guide Dai, who spoke good English, was explaining interesting facts about whatever we were looking at at that moment, some history and life in Vietnam. A very pleasant cruise, that we can easily recommend.
