“Dragon Pearl”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I would definitely recommend that you do the 3D/2N tour. Our group of 4 had a private transfer to and from Halong Bay and even then it's a long 4 hour trip to go for less time.

The food was yummy, the beer was cold and the staff was attentive. We were able to get out kayaking twice and to the beach for a little while for some swimming. My personal preference would have been to get to the beach earlier in the day as opposed to the 4pm ish time we went.

The dinner in the cave was a fantastic experience that I'm sure we will not forget.

used this company to book our 2 night 3 day cruise on Dragon Pearl, its an amazing trip. The boat was cozy, 20 pass. with 13 crew. Food was outstanding and lots of it! Rooms were very clean as was the boat. The cruise included kayaking, swimming and relaxation, the highlight was a cave dinner!! It was worth the extra $ to have a clean, well organized cruise that included hotel pick up and drop off.

“Well organised, highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Great trip and highly professionally run. Our guide Phuc was extremely informative and professional. The crew were amazing! You will not go hungry on Indochina Junk and the cocktails are brilliant. We did the 2 nights, three days tour and loved it. rooms we very clean and comfortable (with own ensuite). We kayaked, swam, relaxed, and ate, and ate, and ate!! The trip to the floating village was a real treat and not to be missed. On the second evening we had dinner in a cave which was magical. We also met a great bunch of people, new friends. Loved the whole experience.

“Fantastic cruise on Princess Junk III”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

What an experience. The Princess Junk has just one double cabin and a crew of five – and what a superb crew. The captain and the guide met us at the Indochina terminal and gave us details about the junk and the route we would be following. We were then transferred by tender out to the junk where we were introduced to the rest of the crew.
The cabin and facilities on-board are first class. As we sailed out into the archipelago we were served a gorgeous sea food lunch on deck. Being a little junk, we were able to come into places the larger ones can`t.
Although it was a bit misty (we were told this is quite normal) the journey among the islands was magical. In the evening we moored up and after sunset, a fantastic dinner was served in the dining room. The next day we had coffee at sunrise followed by breakfast as we slowly cruised back towards Halong. Lunch was served before we dropped anchor. It was five star dining and service the whole time.
Our guide spoke excellent English and there isn`t much he didn`t know about Halong Bay and the people living there. If you want a real experience, book a cruise on the Princess Junk. Unbelievable value for money.

“Fantastic Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Indochina was the more expensive of the cruises but worth every cent. We shared our boat with one other couple who were lovely. The crew were fantastic and the food was some of the best I had in Vietnam. Sailing through Halong Bay in an area reserved for this cruise line was spectacular. To wake up and see the beautiful rocky islands outside of your bedroom window was very special. Our guide was very informative and fun too. I would definitely recommend this cruise line and wish I could do it all over again.
