We did a 2 days 1 night on the Viola Cruise January 5th and 6th 2020 in Halong Bay. We had a wonderful experience with our tour guide Lucky Hoi. He was really knowledgeable, caring of his guests and most of all really funny! He made the cruise really enjoyable and we recommend it to anybody. All the staff on the boat was really kind and offered a great service. And the meals were big and delicious!

Viola cruise is a great company to explore the Halong Bay / Bai Tu Long Bay area - I haven't regretted my booking with their company fo a second! I stayed in the deluxe room, which had a private balcony and large comfy bed, the room and ensuite bathroom were clean and smelled fresh, not musty like people have mentioned. The common areas were spacious and clean as well - in fact, we often saw crew members cleaning the ship early in the morning when we were up for sunrise. The food was delicious, and plentiful - we certainly didn't go hungry! There was a great variety in the dishes served, and I saw that many different dietary restriction were being catered to, though I personally did not experience this. The egg coffee was particularly good, but keep in mind that ALL drinks are charged on the cruise, including coffee, soft drinks and bottled water. This is as a result of the governement limiting the use of single-use plastics, including water bottles, in Halong Bay, but I think that Viola Cruises needs to offer its customers access to filtered water, at the very least. I suggest, until that happens, that anyone travelling with the company, stock up on water before heading out on the cruise. Save your money for the bar during the sunset party! We lucked out with a great cruise guide in Lucky, who we only really met on our second day on the trip. Lucky was charming and informative, telling us stories and explaining the history of the locations we were visiting, or the place we were seeing. He made the whole experience more interesting, even going so far as to point out things to take note of on the bus ride back to Hanoi! If you can request a specific guide, ask for Lucky - he makes the whole experience better. One last thing: If you can work it into your schedule, book the 3-day cruise. Those only doing the overnight stay were rushed onto the boat, had the one night the sleep, then packed up and were back off the boat the next morning. We stayed a full extra day, going on the kayaking excursion on a day boat, then returning to the ship for a second night - it allowed us more time to relax and enjoy the ship, lounge on the upper deck, and sip a cup of coffee. I recommend this option to everyone.

Our 2days and 1 night cruise on viola was wonderful. The staff took good care about us and made sure nothings is missing. Cooking class was really interesting and we learned a lot about vietnamese springrolls. A special thanks to our guide lucky hoi who made our cruise such a special memory of our vietnam trip😊
