Stayed on here for one night/two days as part of my Wendy Wu tour. It really was fantastic. The boat had so much character. The rooms are quite compact but you won't spend long in the room. The food on board was first class. There are lots of activities to do and all of them were interesting and enjoyable. All of the staff on board were really friendly and helpful. I also had a massage which was excellent. And not to forget the views from the boat, wow just wow!

Did the two day/one night cruise and had a blast. Staff were wonderful, the food on board was excellent and a relaxing time was had by all. There were a lot of activities included with the trip, with stops at Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top Island, and another opportunity to stop for kayaking. There were also activities on board such as squid fishing. My room was small but lovely and had everything needed for a short stay. The boat itself is beautiful and you really feel like you are stepping into the past when boarding. This is definitely the best way to see Halong bay and the only downside was that I would have liked to have stayed on board for longer.

We spent 1 night 2 days on the boat whilst on a group tour of vietnam. Wish our stay could have been longer but we saw so much and had a lot of fun (cave / canoeing / trek / swimming) cabins are compact but fully functioning large wet room/ shower. Comfortable bed. Staff are attentive the food was excellent drinks weren't too expensive (there was a happy hour) would definately recommend without any doubt.
