First, if you are trying to decide whether to go to Halong Bay, it is a must see if you are visiting Vietnam. It was the highlight of our trip. I looked at a lot of boats and chose this one as it seemed to be a nice choice for the price. It also had some features that others did not including a shorter drive time back and forth to Hanoi. The drive is about 2.5 hours each way with a short stop. This boat also goes to Ha Lan bay to overnight instead of Halong Bay (although you do go thru part of Halong Bay to get to Ha Lan bay) which is less crowded making it very peaceful at night. Our excursions were a bike ride on Cat Ba Island the first day and kayak trip on the second morning. Both were nice choices with our boat being the only people in the area. Our guide was Mr Lucky. He is a super nice guy that really enjoys his job. He spoke very good English and was with us from pick up to drop off. The food was plentiful and good. The rooms all seemed nice. We booked the suite at the end of the boat which was huge. The bed was super comfortable. The only bummer about our suite was the fact the small boat that takes you back and forth to the port is parked there kind of obstructing the view to the bay from the room. The side view was very nice though. The drinks on board were not over priced. I even found a decent red wine to drink. My only comment on the drinks is to keep the coffee and tea going on the second morning for those that choose to do the kayak tour. We had to hunt someone down to get a coffee and tea when we returned, and we had to pay for it. Other than that I have only positive things to say and highly recommend this area and this cruise line in particular.

It was an amazing and memorable experience on Serenity cruise. The meals, particularly dinner was above my expectation. The route wasn't too touristy which we like a lot. Guides were helpful, attentive and not pushy. My partner especially like the service of Charlie whom took care of our CatBa island tour. Highly recommend this cruise to those looking for halong/lang ha bay cruise 👍👍

Halong Bay is so serene and beautiful. Definitely visit and do an overnight cruise. Whilst the staff on our cruise were great it was not as luxurious as I was led to believe so would probably choose another company although with the virus not many are running. Don’t let the virus put you off at the moment it is safer here than home with the number of cases.

Everything was above and beyond. We had vegan dietary requirements and all was looked after To begin the whole journey, our tour guide Noc (sorry for my poor spelling) was friendly and engaging and made sure the whole tour was smooth sailing and fun A big bucket list item has now been seen and done What a way to do it!!

We realy enjoyed our trip to Halong bay. We think that two nights 3 days is a must to better experience this beautiful area. We strongly recommend the Serenity cruise for the professionalism and enthusiasm of its crew, especially the guides Binh and Lucky on the boat and Charlie for the trekking and tour of the island. Furthermore, in addition to many interesting activies onboard, the meals were excellent and well presented. Thanks to all the team. Francois and Brigitte from Canada
