“Beautiful junk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

The Black Pearl is the most wonderful cruise I have ever been on. She is the most elegant, and beautiful junk that has ever sailed in Halong. Her staff is very attentive to your every need and are very, very friendly. The staff gets to know you and becomes friends with you. It is just a great envirnoment to be in. The food is gourmet quality and the dining room is wonderful. She is the cleanest ship I ever did see!

“Wonderful Cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

This was an incredible and heart warming ship. I found many things that I desired to most on this ship. Most of them would be great food, nice people, bars, and good service. Even though the rooms were a bit small, but everything else was pretty good.

SERVICE: The service on this ship was great. Whenever you wanted soemthing that you desired, they would be there to get it to you as fast as they could. They clean up you room every time you go out and when you come back it's as clean as clean can be.

FOOD: The food on this ship was pretty good. There was a great variety of seafood and burgers and salads and all that good stuff. Got to go, see you later!

“Fantastic!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Halong was the highlight of our journey; the guide takes us around Halong bay on a tremendously furnished boat. The dinner and lunch were more than anyone could possibly eat and exceptionally tasty. Halong Black Pearl Junk, the cruise company, is fantastic and makes our trip as amazing as the surroundings!

“Enjoyable trip with Black Pearl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Thoroughly enjoyable trip with one exception, the visit to the limestone cave was chaotic with too many people in a small space. However, Halong Bay is such a lot nicer than imagined. We will be staying on the overnight junk tour next time around.

“Scam- ruined halong bay for us!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011 via mobile

I will add to this later cus on an iphone but cud not wait to warn about the abnoxious staff discustingly filthy boat and rooms. Overpriced, we went for cycling and trekking that the said was inc. Well we did no trekking snd dy tried to get me to pay again for cycling. In hotel now on catba rite beside the deafening noise of a whole hotel being renovated. People we spoke to paid 95 for luxuryboat, crew, food drink and lux hotel. It was 2$ for a beer . Staff had me in tears at the end and had cheek to ask us all for tip. Horrific for so many ppl getting scammed each day. Please pass on
