Cruise was amazing and well planned. Never a dull moment aboard the boat - crew was fantastic, very pleasant and helpful. Very accommodating to dietary requirements - we didn’t eat seafood or beef which made up a majority of the menu and the crew took care of this and made a whole new menu for us without a fuss. The meals are incredible - each consisting of 7 courses! Luca was a fantastic tour guide and was very helpful throughout the tour. He also informed us of the history of ha long bay. ha long bay itself is breathtaking and definitely a place not to be missed!

Was a great size boat that made us feel welcomed. Activities were breathtaking. Will never starv in this boat. We had a kid in our group which was accommodating for him too. Cabins were extremely clean. Happy hour was just as great. Top deck was just as good too. Thank you Peter and the team for looking after us.

I loved every minute on the cruise! That was a wonderful stay for me and my sisters, we really enjoyed the trip. Food & drink was excellent. The scenery was over our expectation, thought it was a dream. Staffs were superb, the whole team did a good job, congrats! They are very attentive and helpful. Calvin - Kien - the manager helped us to arrange for our check out early, Tommy - Tien always made sure we enjoyed our meals and had everything we needed, Jimmy - Hung made delicious cocktails with well decorations, another Hung - Taichi teacher was nice too. We enjoyed visiting Titot mountain, Sung Sot cave and kayaking in bay just wish they could last longer but the funniest thing was squid fishing even we didn't catch any of them. Generally, that trip were amazing time for our family reunion, I would like to send a big "Thank" to the team. We would definitely come back!
