Absolutely excellent. Cabins comfortable, private and the bath o erlooks the bay. Food 5 star. Service friendly and heart warming. I highly recommend a 2 night cruise in Halong Bay. Try the Tai Chi, go kayaking and enjoy the views while sipping a cocktail on the open top deck. It is a must do.

Visiting Halong Bay is a bucket list experience for anyone; the staff and facilities of Hera Cruise will enhance the whole thing for you. The staff on our cruise, especially Cindy, Kevin, James and Apple, were all extremely helpful and friendly. The food was great, the accommodations and activities wonderful. I would highly recommend to anyone. If you don’t already know how to make spring rolls, they will teach you!!

My wife Ngoc Hien and I have just been back from a wonderful trip to Halong Bay on Hera cruise today, June 16, 2019. We spent 2 days and 1 night on this 6-star cruise. We booked a type of room called Planet suite named Hera Wind. Wow, the room was very clean, tidy and cozy. Both of us feel very happy with the service, the staff and the foods on the cruise. Fantastic trip which brought lot of joys and out door activities such as mountain climbing to see Sung Sot ( Amazing ) cave, kayaking on the calm sea to see daily lives of fishermen on their boats, or swimming at Soi Sim beach etc., So we gave Excellent to this cruise and it’s staff. Thanks Manager Thanh and all of his subordinates, his crew for warm, lovely, devoted and joyful service to all of us. We will remember you all very much. TUAN and HIEN

We stayed ai Hera Classic Boutique cruise from 2nd to 4th Jan. We travelled with a 3YO and a 1YO. Our stay was nice until a big accident happened when the sliding glass door in bathroom came crushing down to pieces on my left hand when I tried to close it. It was our sheer luck that I was there at that time in bathroom and both of the children were sitting in bed drawing with colour pencils. I had to scream at the top of my voice for help as they don’t have a phone service in rooms. Although the restaurant was just above our floor and there were housekeeping staffs cleaning other rooms in the same floor but it took them 5minutes to come down to my room. I had cuts all over my left hand and feet. They came and cleaned the area and put band aids on my hands. I was so relieved that none of the kids were injured and I thought not to make any noise as the staff seemed sorry. But that was so I only imagined. When checking out on 4th morning we were not able to find the room key (which we later found out that our toddler put that in our bag) the cruise manager Dan or Dang exactly told me that “we are not saying anything about the glass but the key must be returned”. And at that time I clearly told him that we can sue the cruise for such big accident! We refrained because as we all were safe. This was so disappointing and unexpected from him. I was so disgusted with him at that time. And still so disgusted. I don’t know if it is a normal human behaviour. If a single scratch came to my children I would have sued the cruise but since all were safe I though not to. Horrible horrible experience. The nice feelings of staying there became so sour that we won’t never recommend this cruise to anyone. And it is just because of this particular manager person.

My husband and I took a two night cruise in March to celebrate an early birthday and anniversary. We had booked a balcony room on the Aphrodite and were upgraded to a balcony suite on the Hera cruise. From the moment we stepped on board we were in heaven!!! The boat is absolutely amazing and the suite we were given at the back of the boat with a huge private balcony was like a dream!!! It was huge with a large super comfortable bed with windows on two sides overlooking Halong Bay. We also had a big bathroom with a bathtub facing the water so we could cruise along and look out at the bay while sitting in the bathtub :-) The interior was luxurious and so inviting - we felt like royalty, and the balcony we had at the back of the boat was wonderful - with sun loungers and the most perfect view!! When Anna the cruise director came and asked if we were comfortable - we just asked if we could move in for a few months :-) Anna and the rest of the staff took such good care of us!!! The restaurant and the sundeck on the boat were fabulous and the food are what dreams are made of - so delicious. Every dish we were served was like a piece of art - lovely!!! We were very lucky with the weather on our tree day two night cruise and had sunshine and clear skies the whole time. We asked our waiter Mark if we could eat our meals outside on deck they set up tables for us on the balcony and on the sundeck - they were just wonderful!!! Our waiter Mark was so helpful and charming, nothing was a problem, he served us where ever we wanted, he really made an extraordinary effort to make all our wishes come true :-) They set up beautiful tables decorated with a tablecloth and flowers and even dimmed the lights so we could have lovely romantic dinners under the stars on deck!!! On our last night they suprised us with a birthday cake for my husband, cocktails and a beautifully carved lantern made out of a watermelon for our anniversary - all set up in our cabin when we returned after having dinner :-)
The trips we had during the day were very nice, although we liked the boat so much that we opted to just stay on the boat and relax on the first and last days. On the second day we went to a water village in bamboo boats and did some sightseeing - it was rally nice and very interesting. We then went back to our lovely boat fot lunch and the did som canoeing in the bay and visited some caves that were very lovely and not crowded at all, we had them all to our selves - guided by our wonderful guide Zoe who was very knowlegable and eager to show us arround. This cruise was an amazing experience for us which we will always remember - definitely one for the bucket list!!! From the very first contact with Aphrodite Cruises with Angela in the booking department, who answered all our questions quickly and professionally and really made the extra effort to take good care of us - to the transfers and the whole experience - it was just PERFECT!!! Thank you so very much to the staff for making our trip so magical!!!

We absolutely loved our excursion on Ha Long Bay. They picked us up from our hotel in a private van with one other couple and it was a comfortable, air conditioned ride to the boat. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure your every need was met. Apple was friendly and funny, James and Kevin made sure we were always comfortable. The accommodations were beautiful and spacious. Because we were here in July with outside temps of about 98 degrees, it was a little difficult for A/C to keep up. We closed off the bathroom to remedy that. The kayaking around the fishing villages was a great experience and the cave was a great sight to see despite the big crowds of people. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. Top notch!

This cruise truly exceeded all expectations. There was great food, fun excursions, and various activities on the ship itself. The destination and the journey is beautiful while the cabins are luxurious with an amazing view. To top it all off, the staff, especially James and Cindy was outstandingingly courtious and kind. Kevin, the cruise manager didn't hesitate to go out of his way to ensure you had the time of your life! Worth every penny, Go for it!!

I had already done another tour before that one.
All the cruises have the same program so nothing special to say about that.
+ Rooms are nice, boat is comfortable, the staff were welcoming (especially the two young ladies)
- Food was not that good besides lunch which was tasty, the fruit juices were terrible (especially for that price)
Overall, we enjoyed our trip since ha long is amazing. Regarding the price, this cruise is not special compared to the other ones.

PS: stop asking to give a 5 star review, not appreciated
