Things to know
Our guest's experiences (8)
My wife and I just had 1 night on Amanda. The vessel was a bit downgraded and so was the shuttle boat. We booked the cabin Deluxe which was compact yet pretty comfortable. The food was good but we hoped it could be better. The manager was the best host and he made our trip more enjoyable.
The trip was really enjoyable thanks to the staff, especially the professional cruise manager Dan. He made sure all guests were well looked after and went the extra mile to fulfill our needs. We really appreciate the room decor for our anniversary. Food was not outstanding yet varied and eye-catching. We could not kayak and decided to relax on board. The cave was giant and beautiful. It was a nice cruising experience.
A clean and modern boat. The trip was filled with activities such as visiting a cave, swimming, kayaking, cooking, Taichi, etc. Food was excellent and our cabin was nice. The thing we did not like is the tender boat from the cruise to excursions. It was cramped and uncomfortable, especially under the heat of the summer.
My family and I booked 2 nights on Amanda Cruise. The vessel was pretty new and included fundamental facilities such as restaurant and bar, and spa. Activities for the first day were okay yet the second day was superb. We had much more time kayaking at Dark-Bright Cave and swimming in untouched areas. The food was flavorful and much of it. The team did a good job and we will remember this trip for long.
Halong Bay was outstanding and an overnight trip was the best way to enjoy it. We had 2 days on Amanda Cruise. Good food. Nice cabin. Excellent service. Friendly and kind staff. Everything met our expectations and we had a memorable time. Highly recommended!
Food was ordinary. We expect better both quantity and quality. The cabin was spacious and nicely equipped. However, the cleanliness could be improved. The staff was friendly and always eager to please guests. Kayaking was good but should be extended. It was very short.
The ship was older than the picture. Cabin was neat and the bed was comfy. However, the hot water did not work well. Food was yummy. Staff was very friendly, especially the manager.
The vessel was nice and very well equipped. We traveled with our little one and the staff was very courteous and helpful. We enjoyed all the activities and found no boring time onboard. Food in all meals was well prepared and nicely presented. The taste was great. We had a Senior Suite on the upper deck. The cabin was lovely with a private balcony and comfortable bedding.
