“Bhaya Cruise”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We decided on Bhaya based off a Vietnamese friend's recommendation - and we weren't disappointed! Very beautiful boats (compared to other very dirty/dodgy looking ones we sailed past), very clean, and extremely organised from when you first arrive at the dock to when you disembark the boat. The food was lovely and so were the staff. We booked a Royal suite at the front of the boat and we loved it - the room was a great size, lots of windows, the ensuite lovely, and double doors leading out to the terrace. There was plenty of privacy, and it is a nice relaxed atmosphere (not a party atmosphere!) - huge open deck on top to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. Tours to the floating fishing village and the caves were awesome.. well worth it! We went in early December and the weather was absolutely stunning! Blue skies and the most amazing sunrise and sunset.. calm waters. Highly recommended trip!

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

This was the best experience we had. We did the 3 day 2 night cruise and really pleased we didn't do the 2 day 1 night. It is about a 4 hour drive to Ha Long Bay so it's worth staying a little longer. We spent new years eve on the boat and the staff threw a fantastic party! Lots and lots of food, dancing and games. The staff are all so amazing and heaps of fun. We event got a surprise cake to celebrate our honeymoon. There was so much food, drinks are overpriced but to be expected on a boat cruise. The only complaint we have is that we missed out on half a day on a cycling excursion due to a mechanical fault on our transfer boat which left us waiting around on a boat for hours. They didn't have a back up plan and we were rather bored. But they rectified the situation professionally, when we complained they were very apologetic and told us to contact our agent. Fortunately, we booked through our hotel (Hanoi Paradise) and Bella managed to arrange for a small reimbursement fee for us. All in all, a fantastic trip. We visited a cave, fishing village, kayaking and squid fishing. However, would be nice to come when the weather is warmer.

“Excellent Customer Service”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

"Bhaya Cruises" were extremely accommodating and responsive. We messed up our flights and at the last minute realised we could not go ahead with the overnight cruise we'd booked. They responded very efficiently, although the fault was entirely ours and they arranged a last minute private day tour for us so that we could get back to Hanoi in time for our flight home. Emily Lan Anh who was my agent contact speaks extremely good English and was so helpful. The boat is lovely, with comfy lounger chairs on the deck where you can enjoy the view in style. The food was superb and the service 5 star. Highly recommended.

“Great trip”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

This is not Cunard, but, wonderful. The staff could not be more friendly or inviting. The food for breakfast and lunch was fine. Dinner was very good. Rooms are a bit loud. All in all great. Mr. Nguyen Van Thao was great!!
