What a terrible company!
Halong Bay is amazing and you can’t miss it if you visit Vietnam, this company on the other hand is terrible, we had a terrible experience! We spoke to Sales Manager about this stay but he was so unprofessional and not helpful at all! Avoid this company, go with any other.

This company is not to be trusted!
Dec 2019
We booked a tour with this company through GetYourGuide. We were scheduled for a New Year's Eve overnight cruise, we booked this a few months in advance and pre-paid the extra fees for the holiday. Shortly before we left the US, we received an email from the company informing us that we had to pay an additional $50 ($25 each) for transport from Hanoi, plus an additional $60 for dinner on board. GetYourGuide verified that we had already paid for all the extras, but GYG would not stand up to the fraudulent Luxury Flamingo Cruise company. I recommend you avoid this company at all costs, there are plenty of good options for Halong Bay cruises.

Excellent cruise.
Nov 2019 • Couples
Went on this cruise as part of a Lumle Holiday tour to Cambodia and Vietnam. There were about 22 of us collected from different hotels. Activities were good, food was plentiful and excellent. Crew were very attentive. Slept on board one night. Very good accommodation too.

excellent all-round tour.
Oct 2019
Well worth the trip from Hanoi which was a bit tedious although it is interesting countryside. Halong Bay is quite spectacular as is the cave of Surprises. Our tour guide Johnny was excellent. Very informative, great sense of humour, fluent English and helpful in all ways to make our trip so enjoyable.

Great time on a boat!!
Sep 2019 • Friends
We spent a night on a boat, it was a great experience, although Ha Long Bay in general is a loud place (karaoke at night from all boats, very loud, not for a romantic stay, but that’s just a general comment - our boat was peaceful ;) food was amazing, so many dishes and such high quality seafood, spring rolls, the chief is excellent! The leader (Hun) is a great guy! Very funny :)

A beautiful cruise
Aug 2019
Having read lots of reviews of Halong bay we were expecting it to be overrun with tourists. Only one part of the trip was (the visit to the beach and viewpoint), the rest of our experience was calm with not too many other people around. The journey from Hanoi is very long, but the scenery in the bay is worth it. We found all of the staff on the cruise to be really friendly, particularly our guide Thang. The boat was good value for money for what we paid- we weren't expecting complete luxury but it was clean and comfortable. The activities were well organised and scheduled. The food on board was great- they catered for dietary requirements and there was so much food we certainly never felt hungry! We felt that this was an enjoyable and relaxing way to visit this beautiful part of the world.

Nice way to see Ha Long Bay
Aug 2019 • Couples
Summary first before going into details - the staff and the boat are great, but make sure you understand just how many other tourists are going to be in Ha Long Bay before you travel.
We travelled from Hanoi and stayed on the boat for one night and two days. The staff were all amazing throughout our stay and our guide in particular (Thuong?) was brilliant, friendly and knowledgable throughout. The food was incredible, 2 five course meals served on the first day, a buffet breakfast and then a three course brunch on the second. The cabin was small but comfortable, there was good AC and the bathroom had plenty of hot water. There was one uninvited guest in the bathroom (a crawling one) but this was the only time we saw anything like that on the boat.
The activities were well run by the tour company and the Kayaking in particular was worth doing. Unfortunately, due to the number of other visitors to the bay, the other activities were all very rushed and crowded. The beach on Ti Top island was so crowded it wasn’t worth the effort and the surprising cave felt like a conveyer belt of people. I would also suggesting skipping the Tai Chi, it is done very early in the morning and only lasts for about 15 minutes. In our experience, it was also a bit advanced for first timers!!
The other negative part of the experience was the waiting around on the final day. The company need to organise the times better as we were left standing around on the dock for almost an hour waiting for the bus to drop off the next tour grouping pick us up. This was after a morning where all the activities had felt very rushed and we had then sat in the harbour for nearly an hour as well.

Good boat with fantastic crew
May 2019 • Friends
OK, the Flamingo is beginning to look as if it could do with a coat of paint but what made this experience was our guide and the crew.
The cabins are a good size with plenty of hot water in the bathroom. Lovely big windows.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and likeable. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew and the food was fantastic for what is, I'm sure, a very small kitchen.
Halong Bay was just beautiful. We went at the end of the High Season so it probably wasn't as crowded as it can be.

First cruise experience
Apr 2019 • Couples
We did a 1 night cruise as part of a Cambodia & Vietnam trip by Lumle holidays. The hotels & boat were pre chosen by them.
The good
The boat was very smooth even during the overnight storm. The cabins are small but absolutely fine for 1 night. Lots of on board space to sit and enjoy the scenery.
The bad
We couldn’t use our wardrobe due to the leaky air con unit above. Meals were at set times so no flexibility at all.
The unusual
Vegetarians like me who don’t eat fish are a bit of a puzzle to them. There was no price list for drinks so we asked for one. Our tour guide told us that beer was very expensive on the boat & to be careful what we charged to our cabin. He told us it cost 6 US dollars on board, all over Vietnam and Cambodia beer was costing about 50 cents US or 40p sterling. When we got our bar bill at the end, it was 1 US dollar per beer. The tour guide was employed by the boat so we are a bit bemused as to why he did this. Perhaps he thought we might get a bit rowdy. We are a very middle aged couple who would have no more than 3 beers on a big night out! All in all, it was a great first time cruise.

An old boat with no evening entertainment
Apr 2019 • Couples
We were transported in an old minibus with other guests on an almost 4 hour drive from Hanoi. The boat itself needed painting on the outside and had clearly seen better days.

Staff on board were friendly and served food in a restaurant area. The food was average, looking around many people left most of it.

Drinks were available on board but as with most river cruises were overpriced. After dinner there was nothing to do. The bay was crowded with other boats with discos and karaokes but this had nothing.

We had been promised fishing in the evening but it was the wrong season and no entertainment alternative was provided. We were in bed by half 9 listening to other boats have fun.

The best part was watching another boat reverse into our boat smashing a window.

We then had a harrowing transfer back to Hanoi with some of the most dangerous driving I have ever witnessed.

Try to book with a better company if you plan to cruise Halong Bay.
