Overall not a bad visit, however there were only 8 of us. The half a glass of orange juice are still the cocktails! The table clothes and bed linen are also still tired and stained. Our tour guide was lovely, if not very commander like. She rushed us between activities, not the lost relaxing but we kept to schedule. I... More

After a 3-hour drive from Hanoi (with compulsory stop at some souvenir shops), we arrived at Ha Long Bay and were greeted by a pretty young tour guide who led us to the tender that took us to the Emotion cruise ship. From far, there was a sweet young lady in traditional Vietnamese dress waving and welcoming us onboard, which... More

Unfortunately I have to agree with recent other reviewers. This cruise was very disappointing. Crazy drive from Hanoi to wait for your director. The boat was aged, cocktail on arrival was 1/4 cup orange juice. Only 8 couples on this tour. We were led to dining room where we were all seated at separate tables. From here we were given... More

The cabins were comfortable, yet tired!. Food was excellent with a good variety. I am not sure that we travelled any further into Halong Bay by staying overnight as the boat was at anchor. The standard of the massages on board was basic and the staff 'multitasked' between selling souvenirs, pearls and massaging! The trip to the caves was worth... More

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
