Highly recommended. Very nice Cruise, everything was very well orchestrated from pickup at the hotel to the drop off. Great staff, very attentive, nice food. Nice size of boat, nice private feeling. Not the most modern but that was part of the charm. Well maintained. The activities were well balanced.

Excelente experiencia. Merece mucho la pena el crucero de 3 días y 2 noches. Menos se hace corto. El barco está en excelentes condiciones. El personal a bordo es excelente, y atienden todas tus necesidades. Además, antes del crucero, resuelven todas tus dudas, y concretan de manera excelente el transporte a Halong desde Hanoi. Una maravilla. Estoy muy contenta.

It was a very Nice trip and Can be recommended. However, the booking company/coordinator was too creative.. The most luxery and expensive Cruise was booked. Then suddenly they informed that Cruise was unfortunately fully booked, but they had found another Cruise. That Cruise was a completly lower standard and they informed they would search for another Cruise. Ended up in a ok Cruise, but for sure not like the Cruise ordered.. and the price was the same.. Good advise, when booking ensure you get the Cruise you pay for.
