Breath taking scenery, good food, quite nice cabin, attentive friendly staff and Tam the excellent guide. Easy for your mind to imagine the early explorers who travelled through the 2000 island, whilst drinking a beer admiring the misty scenes rolling by.

Pick up and transfer were fine, quite long journey but got to see variations of Vietnamese life whilst travelling. Little stop at a place full of 'traditional' wares.

The boat had a good sun deck with seating and sun loungers. The restaurant area is a nice place to dine, walled with windows showing the epic views. The cabin was nice, maybe not as plush as some but comfortable bed, ensuite and room for a cott. Balcony you could not stand on but the views make up for it!

We wished we would have done the 2 night trip because there was soo much packed into the tour- cave which you walked around, hidden lagoon (we chose to be rowed in due to baby but kayak was an option) Ti Top island which was absolutely rammed with tourist, lots of steps to the top but we are fairly active and did it carrying the baby with ease, had a swim but afterwards questioned the water with all the little boats! Unsuccessfully squid fishing, cooking lessons and a low key sunset party.

The staff were very helpful, on hand to provide towels on the excursions, local and international knowledge. Drinks were extra, which surprised some guest- it was on the menus but maybe people only see what they want to.

You can see why there is talking of limiting or stopping the boats staying in the bay at night (no doubt pressure from big businesses building 100's of hotels in the area) because there are literally 100's of boats sailing through the beautiful islands.

A must if travelling through Vietnam

Ha Long Bay 2-day / 1-night Cruise. Crew was friendly. Views were great. Captain Jack was a good host. Meals were filling and tasty. Side trips to kayak, the beach, and cave were well done, on time, and without issue. Morning tai chi was relaxing. One minor quibble would be the pressure to buy alcohol.

We did a 2 day tour with Duke as our guide. We were very lucky with the weather. The tour was really great and Duke did an amazing job in perfect English. What I will remember the most is our early breakfast on the balcony with the sun rising up in the sky.

Planned this overnight trip for my friends who were visiting Hanoi and didn't know what to expect. It was truly a fantastic weekend for us and we got to thank our butler Sam for taking such good care of the 6 of us and exceeding our service expectations. My thanks also to Harley Tran for helping me to make the arrangements over many emails to ensure everything was arranged smoothly.

We had a two days and one night package and it was worth experiencing. The staff has been polite and accommodating. Our tour guide Viet was with us the complete trip and familiarised us with vietnam history. We welcome 2020 with lovely people around. Most of above, being vegetarian we were given full attention and our food taste was well taken care.

Tuan was a great tour guide! Super helpful and knowledgeable. The service from all staff was great! We did the 2 day, one night cruise and loved it but wish we had time to do the 3 day, two night.
The food was so good and was prepared right on the boat.
Our room was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the water. Beds were comfy and I slept very well.
The caves were amazing and we had great kayaking. I loved the whole experience!

We booked through our hotel and paid for the higher rate room which we were told was on the second floor when we arrived we got a first floor room.  Here's where it gets tricky: when I asked the tour guide about it I was told "shhhh the first floor is better, second floor is over the engine".  We made friends with two couples one paid close to what we paid and booked a higher rate room but were on the second floor, the other couple paid for the cheaper room ($30 a person less then the rest of us) and was in the room right next door to me.  When I returned to Hanoi  I inquire with the hotel who set up a meeting with the someone from A class.  He showed up late, told us that the hotel was wrong the nicer rooms are on the 1st floor and offered us a cup of coffee for our troubles.  The tour book has a chart with how many deluxe and superior rooms the boat has, more of the cheaper which was our room! We felt completely scammed.  

The tour also states night activities and there were none besides "squid fishing", no exciting games or movies.  The crew just hangs out watching TV and the service wasn't good for getting any sort of drink alcoholic or other. The food was plentiful but we had to remind our tour guide daily (they changed daily) that we were vegetarians also there were three seafood only eaters so they made us sit together every meal.  They were wonderful people but it would have been nice to change it up with other people from the boat. 

I (and 4 other couples from my cruise) wouldn't recommend this company or cruise for Halong Bay

We took the 3 day/2 night cruise aboard the Legend, and paid $220/person through our hotel (which was able to give us a 10% discount). We did a lot of shopping around, and ultimately decided to splurge and not do a super-budget cruise (which we heard was really rough) and also not to go super-luxe and spring for the Paradise cruises. We're so happy with our decision! A Class Legend completely met and even far exceeded our expectations, and we felt that it was so worth the money. The room was incredibly nice, with powerful A/C (very key), and was clean and well-decorated. The food, despite what other people had warned, was excellent, and the service was beyond reproach. We'd highly recommend, if you have time, doing the 3 day/2 night itinerary because the 2 day/1 night schedule only really gives you 24 hours on the ship, and you miss the best part of the trip--the 2nd day on the day boat. It took us further out in the bay than the main boat is able to travel, and was a full day of swimming, kayaking, and spending time in nature. Our trip paddled through some caves to a secluded bay full of non-stinging, non-poisonous jellyfish that you were able to touch and pick up. It was one of the most magical experiences I've ever had!

The only con was the long bus ride to and from Hanoi (about 4 hours each way), although that is true of any trip you book, no matter the operator. You do have to pay for additional drinks on board, but I felt that the prices were reasonable (they were about what you would pay for the same drinks from a US vending machine), plus you can always buy cheaper water or beer or soda from the many vendors who will paddle up to your boat in the evenings hawking their wares. When calculating the price of all the entrance tickets (into the Bay itself, to the top of Ti Top island, into the cave), the cost of transport and gas, and the cost of food, I felt that the price of this cruise was well worth it. One of the best and most memorable things we've done on our trip by far!
