Our cruise to Halong Bay with Era Cruises was one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam. The cruise mostly goes through Lan Ha Bay, which is less crowded makes for extra stunning views. We found the cruise to be well paced and organized. The staff was fantastic, especially our cruise manager Huy who made sure we were taken care of at every moment. We stayed in a King Suite room, which we found to be very spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the private terrace and the bathtub with a view of the bay! The food exceeded our expectations - it was really delicious and plentiful, and as a vegetarian, I had no issues. We had a lot of fun kayaking, swimming, and riding a bamboo boat into Cat Ba Island. We found the boat itself to be in good condition, with smooth sailing by the captain, and felt very safe the whole time. We will always remember our incredible cruise to Halong Bay!

Booked through their website and everything was as announced and expected. It is a new company (2years), the cruiseboat is in very good condition and the staff will make everything for you to feel good and enjoy the cruise. The food is good (the vietnamese lunch better than the western deluxe dinner). The cabins are huge, very clean and very comfortable. It is very well organized (hotel pickup, shuttle, visits and onboard events).

Travelled as a family for 1 night. Had a fabulous 1 night cruise on this boat and regret not having booked 1 more night.
Boat: Swanky new boat with big rooms. Has a bar area, deck, restaurant, spa and theatre. Kids were entertained.
Room: We had 3 large rooms with private terraces with lounge chairs. Blissful to sit there and enjoy the amazing views of Halong bay. Bathrooms are big with a view, with a walk-in shower and a jacuzzi tub. Toilet seats are state of the art with the works:) . All other amenities are available in the room...nice touch.
Food/restaurant: excellent quality food with great presentation. The happy hour was great with a cooking demo of fresh spring rolls...interesting.
Staff: a big shout out to all their staff especially Jimmy n Lucky. They went above n beyond to keep us entertained and happy. A couple in our party celebrated their anniversary so they arranged for a cake and sung congratulations in the restaurant which was a really nice touch. Lucky played the guitar to entertain us later in the evening when we squid fishing. Fantastic customer services.
Overalll: I would go back to this cruise again but this time for 2 nights.

We had a pretty bad experience. The photos portray luxury and high quality but it is anything but that. Rooms were dirty. The cave tour was great but that was about it. Food is cheap and the drinks might not even contain alcohol. I was ready to leave about 15 minutes after we got there. Some of the staff was great but some were rude. Would never spend that type of money for such a bad interpretation of elegance.

Just returned from month long tour of Southeast Asia.
The tour company we used booked us on an Era cruise.
We were NOT disappointed!’ The ship is very nicely appointed and the staff were wonderful. Lunch was excellent as was breakfast. Dinner was just OK and could have been better.
In the afternoon, we anchored off one of the thousands of islands. We were ferried over to a small beach for swimming and/or kayaking. Unfortunately the weather was overcast but the water was warm and we had a good time.
There was a fun hands on cooking demonstration in the evening with cocktails before dinner.
The next morning an early morning excursion to a cave was offered. We did not participate as we wanted to relax so cannot comment on it.
We were booked in a “Terrace king suite”. It was fabulous!
Larger than any penthouse suite we’ve been in on ocean cruises. Large king bedroom and private veranda. A huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub plus a large walk in shower.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would not hesitate to recommend their cruise line.

I read many reviews, including the dire review recently left by someone from the USA. All I can say is that my daughter and I thought the entire cruise was a highlight of our 3 week tour of Vietnam. The staff are amazing and as friendly as you would wish. The food was the best I’ve eaten in Vietnam. The kayaking was a fun experience and the squid fishing and cooking classes fun filled. The family room at the front of the boat was massive and the views spectacular. Everyone on board went out of their way to make the guests feel special. In short, the trip was wonderful. Ours was cut short by the decision of the Vietnamese Government to suspend all cruises on a Howlong Bay due to the coronavirus. ERA refunded 60% of my money which was more than fair, given I’d had half my cruise already. They offered free spa services as we went back to port and gave me my money in cash, without fuss, at the port office. In short - go to Howlong Bay, it is amazing. Don’t look anywhere else, book ERA

Me and my wife went on a 2 day 1 night cruise and were pleasantly surprised by the first class customer service that was provided to us by the entire staff at Era cruises. From assisting us to obtain the right visas to Vietnam and transportation from/to Hanoi to surprising us with a special anniversary cake and room decorations, it was a memorable experience. I’d recommend Era cruises without hesitation.

Cruise was way better than my idea of a perfect cruise. I booked directly with the company and Hien from Era cruise was very friendly and helpful. She also helped us in planning our itinerary in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. She kept us updated on everything related to the cruise and we are really grateful to her.

The cruise itself is simply amazing. Other than the breathtaking views, the jacuzzi in the room, smiling staff, the captain named Thanh and the seven course lunch stood out for me. I would recommend anyone looking for a cruise to book with Era without thinking.

Absolutely stunning cruise with super luxury terrace suite. Very well taken care of including our extreme food requirement. Right from pick up from hotel in Hanoi to drop back, the experience was impeccable. Strongly recommend it for Halong Bay experience. They have modern boats and luxury rooms as they promise for and charge.

We booked Era Cruise after 2 months on and off research. HaLong Bay cruise options were insane and it is very hard to differentiate one five stars from another five stars. Some four stars also looks very attractive and high review ranking.

The reason we booked Era were short commute from Hanoi and large cabinet room. Both turned out to be the right decisions.

So why I ranked a poor score overall?
One main reason was that my case got almost stolen/lost.

Throughout the trip, it was endless waiting, waiting to be picked from hotel, we were asked to wait by 9:30am but the car did not arrive until 10:40am. The management seems forgot that people pay 500 dollar per night cruise hate waiting.

Then more wait once arrived the port. The boat did not start until 13:00 ish. Whole morning wasted as far as I see.

Once in broad, all activities were a bit rushed. It is hard to get any time relaxing and enjoying the view. Bear in mind that all the guests were asked to check out 9am on the second day. I think that’s a lot of money for the proper time that guests really spend in the boat cabinet.

Basically after 10am on the next morning, the waiting to be transferred back started.

Given the beautiful view I won’t complain above to be honest. But throughout my 10 years non stop travelling experience, I never had my case got almost lost by Andy hotel/ tour company.

But it happened with Era. Unbelievable - I’m the only guest with a shiny pink case and their poor operation never put a tag on the case to help identify the ownership. They eagle to showcase a “five stars” experience to guests hence you luggage free. BUT, during the transfer back phase (you get out the boat and wait for taxi to bring you back to Hanoi), they just load ANY case, according to guest’s owner words.

In my case, another Aidan couple “mistakenly” told the crew that my only shinny pink case belong to them. Hence without any doubt, the crew loaded my case to their car while all guests are asked to sit in a separately area and got called to your own bus. My taxi back to Hanoi is unfortunately the last one and when I got asked by the crew to identify my case to load the car, there isn’t my case! I honestly wanted to punch people at that point. This is the BASIC of hospitality. You cannot call yourself 5 stars if you cannot even get guest’s case right! So what happened in the end was that the crew manager remotely remembered someone took my pink case (thanks god my case’s eye-catching colour helped!) and she need call the driver of another taxi to turn back to harbour to return the case. And you know what the other guests who took my case said to me “i don’t know who get it wrong but this is not my case”. But the crew manager Joy insisted that that couple told the crew my case was theirs. All I feel was WTF. I regretted paid Era 500 dollar for such a joke. My case with all my limited YSL shoes worth quite a lot I have to say. So there was motivation for anyone saw my outfit on-broad wanting to steal it.

Anyone who read this and still confused about the operation can privately chat me and I will explain more.

One more information is that the picture in sales website all photoshop and real cabinet is more wear and tear.

My main point is I feel overall Era is pretend to be luxury but really not. So I won’t recommend it to my friends.
