Very enjoyable cruise onboard one of the V’Spirit cruise ships. The food was good and the cabins were very clean and comfortable. My only criticism of the itinerary is that there wasn’t much time to just relax during daylight and enjoy the scenery. The activities were okay but nothing special. The cave we visited was packed with tourists, as was the beach stop. It seems most of the cruises follow the same itinerary. Instead of going to the beach I climbed to the top of the small island for great views of the bay. The kayaking was slightly disappointing; 40 minutes just paddling in a fairly small bay rather than kayaking a route between the islands. Overall, this tour is a good way to see Halong Bay, despite the average activities.
We did the 3 day 2 night cruise and started off with Mike as our guide. The food on board was really good and you get a lot of it. The beer was also priced fairly at 40.000 dong so we were able to enjoy a drink whenever we wanted. The real hero of the trip was Dan "The Man". We met up with him the second day and he really made the trip fun. Unlike a lot of tour guides in Vietnam Dan felt totally comfortable trying to get to know us and really provide an excellent experience.
Our family loved our visit to Ha long bay, I’m so pleased we choose the 3day option because we got to experience so much more of the bay and really take it in, the kids had a ball fishing and our guide Dan was absolutely amazing, so funny, the kids loved him, they also loved singing karaoke with the crew (they will remember this forever)! Thanks Vspirit for you hospitality a wonderful tour from start to finish. P.S the food was delicious too! Xx
Very nice trip.. The tour guide thang (win) very good.. No conversation issue..I have a very great holiday with my family in halong bay.., thank you very much to the services crews as well..
Great value cruise. Brilliant selection and quality of food. Well planned itinerary and activities. Kayaking very fun in quiet spot on the bay. Our tour guide Dan (the Man) was absolutely brilliant - could not have done more for us. Would recommend to anyone.
The tour was amazingly prepared and managed. We were on schedule for the whole way! Our guide, Minh Saigon, knows the place really well. Just wish we spent more time in the cave and kayaking!
We were really pleased with this cruise. We ended up booking through our hotel, as all the choices were too overwhelming, and were able to get a good price on this cruise. The boat is very nice and comfy. The rooms are bigger than I'd expected and the toilets/showers are clean and work well. The meals were good. The activities were very interesting, fun and well planned. The staff were really excellent, especially our guide, Rose Lee, who was one of the funniest & kindest people we met in Vietnam.
