We had a two day overnight cruise to Halong bay. The sites we visited were great and I was impressed with the quality of the cabin. The meals were all superb. The only down size being a small boat with a very mixed group there was nothing to do after 8 pm. All the others went to bed and I... More

Even though our trip was cut short through a huge storm, we had a great experience. The crew on The Alova was great, friendly, helpful. Delicious food, great room, nice decor on the boat. We had to be "rescued" and brought to shore early, which was an adventure. The Manager Muoi showed great organisational talent and found us all a... More

We booked our Halong Bay tour through our hotel and specifically requested the Alova Cruises, since we heard it was good. And indeed it was. We did the 2D/1N tour. We were promptly picked up at our hotel in Hanoi by our very friendly guide Sunny. During the comfy bus ride to Halong, he told us about Vietnam's history, culture,... More

It would be nice to have a/c when we wanted...the room was pretty warm during the day after activities. The food was really nice. I would have preferred lunch later on the... More
