This was a wonderful, peaceful respite from hustle of Hanoi. Our cabin was warm and rich dark tones of wood. The room was spacious for two with a balcony on the side. Le was our cruise director. He made everyone feel included and brought humor and smiles to all the passengers.

Wow! We went to Ninh Binh a couple of days ago before this cruise and we thought it was going to take something special to beat that experience - and it certainly did! You can't really compare the two areas but the views are just spectacular and we were very lucky with the weather! The activities were very good and we highly recommend doing the 2 night / 3 day cruise so you dont feel so rushed! The staff were very friendly and good fun (shout out to Dong for your hospitality) would recommend to anyone if they ever thinknof going to Vietnam!

I did a 2 day cruise on the Azalea. Which had I been writing this review after Day 1, it would have gotten 5 stars. I thought the boat was beautiful, the staff seemed friendly, and I loved the bathrooms. However, it was clear that they are not trained when something goes wrong, which in my case it did. Our tender got stuck, and when they took us to a rocky, polluted beach that had sea urchin type things in the water that were sticking in peoples feet. Thankfully, i had water socks on so this part did not effect me. My fellow passengers were not so lucky. To make this very long story a little shorter. It took 2 1/2 hours to get the boat on stuck.The crew as clueless as to what to do. We had to swim the distance of two Olympic size pools to the boat. I had to do this twice, as I was unable to get myself in the boat the first time. After, we eventually, all were on board-no thanks to the crews help, but by the other help passengers on board. Getting an apology or any-type of first-aid from anyone was nearly impossible. We finally got an apology after we had to bring it our attention that people were angry by the experience. Their attempt to pacify us was to offer us a warm soda to take with us when we were exiting the boat.

Halong bay is undeniably beautiful. The boat however is not modern. The furniture to relax on is wooden and not comfortable, with no pillows or mattresses etc. The sun loungers rock hard and not comfy. The boat was incredibly loud during the night. You are provided with 2 complimentary bottles of water on arrival and then that’s it. There is nowhere to refill your water, so you are forced to buy. If we knew this, we would have gone to a supermarket beforehand to buy supplies. We were on the boat for over 48 hours, so we spent a lot of money being forced to buy drinks to stay hydrated. There are no drinks included with your dinner either. Only breakfast has drinks provided. The boat takes you to locations that are RAMMED from other tour boats going to the same locations at the same times. I am unsure why they would not stagger the arrival of the cruise ships at the different locations, as they all seem to go the same place at the same time. The sights were therefore incredibly busy from other boats. The boat drops you off at locations but does not have a guide explain to you about the sites. You just explore on your own. This means we were often trying to ear-wig on other tour guides to try get some understanding, particularly in the caves on day 2. Our cruise was also cut short because of the weather, meaning we missed the floating markets. However we were promptly refunded, which was appreciated. They picked us up from Hanoi and dropped us off in Ninh Bình (for an additional fee). Overall, the bay is beautiful, but the boat and the organisation could be improved. One night on the boat is enough.
