Where do we start… this cruise was AMAZING. The staff were the best service we’ve had in Vietnam, the room was nice, the restaurant and chef were amazing. All of our excursions were so cool. All the logistics ran smoothly and no hiccups. The manager also was an absolute laugh. Would 100% recommend.
“Great service at all time”
Le SenF – Canada
The service was great. The staff are always there and ready to accomodate you. The room was amazing (deluxe) and very comfortable. Very well managed cruise. Usually get sea sickness but didnt happen on that boat.
“The Highlight of Vietnam”
Matt & Jen – Australia
My family of 4 booked and paid 8 months in advance and were upgraded to Margaret Suite Room as a deal. So this is about Margaret Suit Room. We stayed in a family adjoining room,we stayed 3 days & 2 nights which I recommended. Others stayed the 1 night which would not be long enough in my point of view by the time you get to the ship half a day is gone. The rooms were very clean well appointed with A/C ,Lcd tv, comfy beds and large spas. The staff on the ship were absolutely fantastic, brilliant service and always with a smile. The food at the restaurant was also very good and could not be faulted, Dinner was 7 courses! The daytime activities such as the pearl farm & visiting cave areas etc were fun & interesting . There were activities of a night including cooking classes and of course happy Hour on the bar deck upstairs. Just brilliant!
“This was the best part of our Vietnam trip”
Jasmeet – India
“This was the best part of our Vietnam trip. The staff was just wonderful. They were extremely helpful and friendly. We got a room with a Jacuzzi in it (which was amazing!). All the activities organized were exciting and we enjoyed all of them. Happy hours were nicely timed for everyone to enjoy. One Night was just not enough and you should definitely do a Two Night stay on this. Halong Bay is really really beautiful.”
John – America
“We enjoyed the warm welcoming and service provided by the staff members. We also enjoyed the food, the special demonstrations provided by the staff. The rooms were comfortable and there were plenty of activities to participate.”
