We had 2 nights and 3 days on Lapinta. Ha, Minh, Tony, Steve and Sam were great fun and very professional. Food was excellent and our room perfect. Hard to fault this boat. The staff tried very hard to give you a good time and keep you busy but respected your choice if you wanted to opt out. Maybe on checkout guests could be given invoices earlier to check rather than right at the end before departing the boat.

We stayed 3 days and two nights on one of the ships. It's well organised from pick up till bringing back to the hotel. The cabins are very comfortable and it's absolutely unforgettable that feeling to wake up with such a view. The food was perfect from first lunch to last brunch. I never got such a squid like in the dinner buffet. The staff on the boat is very service orientated, absolutely friendly and we'll trained. Was always a pleasure to talk to all of them. Special thanks to Nhin...she was such a fantastic tourguide...always with a smile in the face...was more then a pleasure to do all the activities with her. Before we went home she surprised us with perfect pic what she was taking while we did our Kajaktrip. For sure we will do that trip again with La Pint cruise....and if it's possible on the same ship with Nhin

Recently went on this cruise with my girlfriend and had a great experience. We were picked up by a brand new bus that was very comfortable and made the drive to the boat fly by. Once there, getting on the smaller boat and to the shop was quick and easy. Open arrival was served a great lunch and shown our awesome room which was brand new and nicer than many of the hotels we stayed in. Kayaking and swimming followed by another dinner and some nigh time activities. Most people do the 2 day one night cruise but I highly recommend the 3 day 2 night cruise as day 2 was one of my favorite days of the whole vacation. Tony, our guide for the day was amazing. We took a boat to Cat Ba Island which was a nice relaxing ride to catch some sun and take in the scenery. At the island rode bikes to a small village and farming area which gave a nice look of daily life there and learned about making sticky rice wine and saw the school that they've been able to build with influx of tourism and thanked us for our visiting the country. Then we did a short kayak trip to a private beach with a pool. Our third day, (day 2 for the short trip) was an early morning trip to a cave which was ok. Another huge lunch and then back to the mainland and delivery to our hotel. The staff was all great and attentive, the rooms were very nice and there were tons of activities. It's good that the cruise has a packed itinerary to get your money's worth but it was not a cruise how one normally thinks in the lounging around sense. Only complaint was my girl friend was a vegetarian and since the cruise is new I think they're still figuring this out because her eating options were not always exciting. But they tried to make her comfortable and accommodate her diet. Overall a great experience and highly recommend La Pinta and especially doing the 2 night 3 day option if you have the time.
