This cruise is not very friendly or hygienic from my experience. Honestly my experience was absolutely terrible, Halong Bay is a place where you should splurge and really make it a special occasion, so we did and I've never felt so ripped off. Here's why. All you learn in the cooking class is how to roll a mouldy spring roll,... More

I booked the "EMOTION CRUISE - VIETVIEW HOTEL" 3 day Package for our family, including children aged 3 years old and 2 years old. One of the main reasons I selected this company was the fact that they advertise they are a child friendly ship.

My boyfriend and I were extremely disappointed with our 2 days one night cruise with Emotion. We are certainly not fussy and have never given a bad review before. We were dropped off by our bus driver and waited in the heat for around 10 mins, which would have been fine until we discovered that our tour guide was just... More

With hundreds of boats to choose from I settled for Emotion Cruises as the choice for my family trip to Halong Bay. Like you I reviewed comments from other customers, the good and the 'Terrible' and then comes the gamble. In the case of Emotion Cruises the gamble paid off. We were picked up on time in a very comfortable... More

The overnight cruise on the Halong Emotion was great! The staff was very friendly and did a great job in taking care of us. The food was very good, and there was a lot of it at every meal. The ship, cabins, bathrooms were all very clean - pretty amazing considering the daily turnover of passengers. Granted, due to less... More

Really enjoyed the couple of days on the Halong Emotion. Full itinery including The Secret Cave, kayaking, visiting a traditional fishing village, cookery & tai chi lessons. It was also easy to opt out of activities just to relax of the deck. The room was lovely. The food was relatively average. The atmosphere was great and we had a fantastic... More

We really enjoy with Halong Emotion Cruise. The staff were very polite but the seafood was very basic. Some highlight was enjoyed night fishing for squid, nice TaiChi class on the deck in the morning
