It pains me to write this review as the staff on board deserve 5/5. The hospitality of everyone was second to none however we found it hard to enjoy the first day as there was just too many tourists in the spots we went to. We did the 3 day 2 night cruise. I’d highly recommend you do this above the 1 night stay as on Day 2 we left the crowds behind and got to see some of Halong Bay in peace and quiet. The first day was far too hectic. Rush hour out of the harbour and surrounded at all times by hundreds of boats and thousands of people; it’s just not what I expected from our peaceful cruise! It would have been nicer had the cruise gone further afield to maybe slightly less impressive places but that would have undoubtedly been more impressive as we would have been enjoying nature on our own! If there is a cruise that goes off the beaten track take it! However, on to the good parts! The boat, the food and the staff! The team working on the boat will do everything they can to make your stay the best possible, nothing is too much trouble. One of the waiters even taught me Vietnamese! The food was also great, but be prepared to eat a lot of it!! 9 dishes for lunch and dinner, every sitting!! We had a veggie in the group and they were great at catering for her too. My only comment would be that the drinks were quite expensive. Being on a boat I would have expected them to be double what they are in Hanoi, however they were over three times the price which wasn’t great. And as for the accommodation, we had a Deluxe room with a balcony. The room is small (as you’d expect on a boat) but the bed was comfortable, air con cold and shower hot! Can’t ask for anything more. Would I recommend Carina? Yes! Would I recommend they change their itinerary so as to not go to the crowded areas? Yes! What would I say to a friend visiting Vietnam? Find an alternative that focuses on leaving the throngs of people behind.

Booked 2 days/1 night. The itinerary and activities planned were great. We kayaked at Luon Lake, did a short trek to the top of Soi Sim Island, and explored Surprise Cave. The whole time was very easy-going. The tour guide, Luka, was personable and the rest of the boat staff were very polite. The food was probably the worst part, and even that wasn't bad; there was a lot of it after all. For the price paid, the value was excellent!

Viet was our wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable & explained Vietnamese history as we did a number of activities. We went kayaking & got to see monkeys & jellyfish then relaxed on the beach. We had fun squid fishing at night after happy hour. The next day we did early tai chi & explored the surprise cave. The crew was wonderful as well, would recommend!
