Let aside the amazing experience of spending a few days in this rare landscape, the AuCo was up to expectations. We had a standard deluxe cabin with our kid. Cruise comfort was good, onboard 40+ staff was always helpful and friendly. Special prize to the Chef who did his best to entertain. Our kid was amazed and wants to come back. Only regret : 2 days & 2 nights is really too short for a true exploration experience of the bay and the islands.
From the moment we walked alongside at the dock to the moment we disembarked the service was exceptional. The staff/crew were outstanding throughout. We ha an exec cabin on the 2nd deck. The cabin was excellent, decent size double bed, ensuite double shower/wc and private balcony. Double wardrobe provided c/w digital safe, bathrobes. Cabin had aircon also.
Food on board is plentiful with the crew on hand to check you are enjoying your meal. Crew were willing to provide alternatives to the set dinner menu and checked if you had allergies or not.
The cruise itself is at a leisurely pace with cave visits, beach visits at various times of both days.
Overall a great experience which is a must when visiting North Vietnam. Drinks on board are pricey compared to Há Noi street bars, but still cheap compared to the UK!
