We were a group of 10 occupied 5 rooms. The cruise was very nice. The rooms were spacious. Couldn't believe how big the bathroom was for a cruise. We enjoyed the facility very much. The cave that we visited was just OK. Having been to cave Sung Sot on the other side of Ha Long Bay I found the cave we visited as part of the cruise a bit underwhelming. It took a long bus ride to get there and road was quite bumpy. The food served on the cruise was plentiful but everything was lukewarm. I guess if you want some relaxing time cruising on a very nice boat, then this cruise is for you. But if you'd like to see a better part although crowded of Ha Long Bay I would suggest another cruise which depart from Ha Long instead of Hai Phong.

The staff of this cruise are what made this experience so special. The boat and rooms are beautiful, all dark wood and balconies, with great views as the ship cruises through Ha Long Bay. The staff, however, made us feel welcome, special, and they were a joy to be around. We got a special treat at the dinner for being on our honeymoon, and we felt very honored and it made us feel special. This was a great experience!

First, we must have gone to a different area in Halong Bay than other reviewers, since our experience was that while kayaking and everywhere else we saw no rubbish at all. Enjoyed the kayaking very much. Food only so-so and the cave tour was, to us, a filler, not very interesting. All other aspects, organisation, itinerary, staff, were excellent, definitely recommend.
