We had a fantastic time on the Paloma Cruise. The staff was fantastic, the rooms wee nice and clean and we had fun on all the excursions! The food was incredible and we were stuffed every time we left the table. They provided two glass water bottles to make sure we were hydrated and the Bay stays clean. The boat never felt crowded and there is always something to do on the boat. Unlike large cruise ships, the price for beer and sodas were very reasonable. They don't offer glasses of wine and the bottle of wine prices are high. This was a highlight of our SE Asia trip and we highly recommend booking the Paloma cruise!

We did the one night option and were delighted to be upgraded to the balcony room. My 2 teenage granddaughters had a ball and really enjoyed the kayaking, the food(heaps of it) and the cooking class was so much fun.
Staff were fantastic, and views great. All in all a wonderful trip which I would highly recommend!

My husband and I booked this cruise for our 5 year wedding anniversary. It was absolutely the best decision we made during our stay in Vietnam. The itinerary was fun and engaging. The views were breaktaking. The food was good quality. The service was amazing, thanks to Mr. Tung, Mr. Morning and Flower. We can't wait to come back!

So happy with our choice to see bai Tu long bay with Paloma cruises. We definitely saw other cruise ships but still less touristy than Halong bay. The highlight of the tour were the activities, especially kayaking at sunset and viewing the rock formations. All of the staff were super nice as were the other guests. The food was average and rooms were nothing special but it was a great value and experience for the price.

Fantastic cruise. Really good boat and facilities. Crew was led by the super fun Ning, he was helpful, funny and ensured all groups had a fun time. Service was great.

Favourite part of the trip was the kayaking around the Halong Bay islands. Being a non seafood eater, the kitchen crew were very accommodating. The days were filled with activities - not a second that was wasted
