We booked a 2-days cruise in Halong Bay with Vega Travel because of the good feedbacks in tripadvisor and the note in the Lonely Planet. We paid 96 USD for a standard cabin with 2 single beds, including the pick up service at our hotel in Hanoi.
They were always on time and nice but our guide spoke a bad english (not easy to understand). The boat was nice but too cold! they didn't tell us to take heavier clothes and they didn't switch on the heat before 22.00 pm.
I have read some good feedbacks about food: i am sorry but these people don't know what is good food! Meals were low average and many fried foods.
Drinks were overpriced considering the normal cost of a beer in Vietnam ( beer 2USD, wine bottle 30USD, water 1USD) and they asked us to pay 1USD for any beer we took from outside the boat and 10USD for any bottle of wine from outside. Of course we drunk our beers and we didn't pay anything, avoiding to drink them during the dinner or the lunch.
Well, I think Vega Travel Cruise in Halong Bay is overvalued so don't have many expectations otherwise you will be disappointed. You get what you pay!
