This was part of our tour arranged by Indochina Odyssey tours. It was unfortunate that the weather did not cooperate at this point, it was cloudy, cool and overcast. The tour, however, was very good. Aside from not having hot water, the boat was comfortable and the food good. I would like to redo this cruise in better weather as... More

Before staying in Emotion Cruise, my family members and me are so excited to go to Ha Long Bay. But they totally ruin our holiday. I wrote email to their staff- Ms. Giang to provide our information and book the transfer. This was totally nice until we arrived at Ha Long Bay. Until we went on board, they told us... More

We were traveling South to North as many others do, and took this as a two day trip ( one night). The boat is an older boat and smaller than some plying the waters which made it a more intimate enjoyable trip. Our room was large as we had a drinks party before dinner and fitted eight adults in the... More

I was recommended this by my travel agent who is well reputed in Vietnam area, Before booking I took the trouble to read Tripadvisor reviews specially the negative ones ( Good ones are no use since that is what you expect anyway). I was horrified and have decided to be miles away from them. Am I right in my thinking?... More

We were travelling on a South to North Vietnam tour after puchasing a Scoopon deal with Hoi An Express. We choose the 4 star option and this boat was NOT 4 star. The boat was old and needed a complete make over. Cabin was ok but shower was awful with no hot water. We were near the engine room, on... More

We stayed on the Emotion cruise for 1 night (there is also a 2 night cruise available). The room was spacious and comfortable with all required amenities. The crew was friendly however their lack of English made communication uncomfortable. One of the downsides was no wifi reception available in the room and what was available in the dining area was...

Ha Long Bay is a must see - possibly one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Cruizing around these tranquil waters on this luxury floating hotel was a perfect way to end our tour of Viet Nam. The decor on the boat is islander - the food - mainly seafood and plentiful - the views ever changing -... More

One thing I've learned about halong bay cruises is that they over promise big time. They use old pictures of the boats (when they were new) which do not reflect the present condition of the cruise boat. Halong emotion is no different. The boat is a bit tired and the food is average, certainly not luxury standards as suggested in... More

Overall not a bad visit, however there were only 8 of us. The half a glass of orange juice are still the cocktails! The table clothes and bed linen are also still tired and stained. Our tour guide was lovely, if not very commander like. She rushed us between activities, not the lost relaxing but we kept to schedule. I... More

After a 3-hour drive from Hanoi (with compulsory stop at some souvenir shops), we arrived at Ha Long Bay and were greeted by a pretty young tour guide who led us to the tender that took us to the Emotion cruise ship. From far, there was a sweet young lady in traditional Vietnamese dress waving and welcoming us onboard, which... More
