24 Hrs cruise - Heaven
We had a wonderful time on our 24hr cruise.

We were picked up from hanoi and taken to the cruise.

Surprisingly we were exactly 3 guests,me my wife and a very nice French lady.

Huge boat only to us!

The cabin was good for 2 people and had a small balcony outside, which was just amazing.

Food was delicious, pre plated, 5 course.

There was a "cooking class" but actually it's just making rolls. We weren't interested it in, so no issue.

On board there is Tai Chi at 7 am, but I was sleeping, so missed that.

Before Goin to Ti Top Island, ensure you wear comfortable sports shoes, lots of climbing involved. Don't miss it!

Surprise Cave is another amazing activity not to miss, don't get di-heartened by the insane crowd, it's worth the wait.

We were in our honeymoon, so on the day of check out, suddenly we had a cake, what a sweet surprise :)

We also had a special honeymoon set up in our cabin.. (Image given below)

Finally I must thank the wonderful staff on board, specially Thai (Bartender) always smiling.

And the cruise manager Chin was another standout.

The names spelling is wrong, but I hope the management understands who these guys are.. And gives them their deserved recognition.

Great experience, great cruise
Even in a day when the weather didn't help much, every activity was worth it.

The crew is great and very nice, specially Chinh and our guide Vinh.

Clean bedrooms and nice bed that we only use for the night because there are many activities.
