What a great trip around the bay! The staff treated us like royalty, without being too in your face. There were things to do, like swimming, kayaking, squid fishing, Tai Chi and a cooking class (with eating), but you were never pressured to do so and could be left to your own devices if you just wanted to relax. Great view out of the bedroom window, and the aircon was like ice if you needed to cool down. We enjoyed the food, especially eaten outside the dining room next to the water, omlettes made to order for breakfast. The caves were a nice touch on the next morning for a bit or exploring.Thank you.

“Awesome way to explore the Halong!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Absolutely recommended for those who love some adventure, the sea and the essence of South East Asia. The Bhaya team was wonderful and warm, the choice and quality of the food served on board was excellent. There was some choice in the activities on board and all seemed interesting making it difficult to decide what to do. A must do when in Vietnam!

“Luxury sailing around beautiful Halong Bay”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Attentive lovely local staff trying to please - trying really really hard to the point that they are continually asking if you sleep well, love the food, love the entertainment etc. the five star luxury is very nice but there are a few points that I struggled with; the food was OK, not sensational and didn't live up to the hype of the welcoming staff, the shower was blocked and would not drain, the air conditioning in the room was nois but effective, in the main dining area the air con struggled. The transfer boat was slow and archaic and let down those who left the main 2 night cruise earlier because they had only booked the one night cruise - we all felt a little like second class citizens. The bay is beautiful but one night was enough with a visit to surprise cave - an easy walk but the staff tried to make it sound arduous so many did not go, the kayak journey thru the fishing village was changed without notice to a local lady rowing us thru the village. A lovely place to visit ina nice boat but v expensive fr the privilege.

“Wonderful getaway on Halong Bay”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Just finished a blissful cruise on Halong Bay with Bhaya with my wife and 5 year old son. My biggest worries were how my vegetarian wife and young son would do. The crew went out. If their way to take care of them which I really appreciated. The stop at the fishing village was spectacular. I definitely recommend a cruise with Bhaya.

“Bhaya Day Cruise, Vietnam”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Booked this trip through USO tours in Korea, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the cruise.
Food was very good quality, cabins very nice, crew very enthusiastic and helpful, and Halong Bay and scheduled activities very beautiful. Not a Disney Cruise where you should bring small kids, but wonderful for couples or friends to see some of Vietnam's natural beauty. Definitely recommend it! Be advised if you are traveling from Hanoi to port it is a four hour trip, but worth it to see rural area of Vietnam and take some great pix.
