The vessel was pretty and well-maintained. The lunch buffet could be better. Other meals were excellent. The staff was definitely the highlight of the trip. They were caring and extremely friendly. Activities were diversified with cooking, taichi, swimming, kayaking, hiking, etc. The cooking class was interesting. The cave tour was a bit chaotic.

It was our dad’s 60th birthday and the trip exceeded our expectations. We booked 2 Elegant Suites on the second deck. They were spotless and clean. We had a nice balcony and all necessary amenities. The ship includes a jacuzzi on the top deck for relaxing. My mom and I booked a massage and it was pretty good. Cuisine was incredible. We had a lunch buffet and dinner set menu. All meals were well prepared and beautifully decorated. At dinner, the staff brought a cake and sang a happy birthday song for my dad’s birthday. Thank you so much for that. This is among the best tours on our Vietnam trip. Once again, thank you to the whole team!

The ship itself was nice but a bit aged. The furniture was well maintained. Our cabin was clean, spacious and well equipped. We feel very welcomed and were taken care of by a dedicated team. Food was fantastic and lots of it. We will come back without a doubt.

The activities were a bit too much and the cave and island were overcrowded. We love spending time on the sundeck and our balcony. The bay was gorgeous. The food was plentiful and flavorful. Staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Mr Morning, Linh, An. Everyone was great.

Nice staff. Spacious and clean cabin. Plentiful food. Vegetarian menu was yummy. Varied activities. Perfect scenery. Just a small downside is about the rubbish on the water. Other things were all excellent. Thank you!

My mother and I booked 1 night. Our cabin has a balcony and the view was spectacular. The food was good yet we expected more local food. The cave was majestic and beautiful. We also tried kayaking for the first time and it was interesting.

Everything went smoothly although it seems all cruises ran on the same schedule and the attractions were very crowded. The excursions on Day 2 (3d2n) were much better. Less rushed and less crowded. We visited a floating village, kayaking, and swimming in quiet and peaceful areas. The staff was nice and attentive, especially the guide. Food was a mix of local and Western cuisine. We enjoyed it all. Highly recommend everyone to book 2 nights.

Had 2 days/1 night on Athena Royal and things were well organized. The staff treated us like family and the manager was very dedicated. The food was tasty and they cater vegetarian food as well. The excursions were amazing with Surprising Cave, Titov Island, and Luon Cave. The kayaking was a bit short and crowded but we enjoyed it a lot. Overall a good trip and highly recommended.
