A new and stylish ship. Elite of the seas offers a variety of modern facilities and activities that keep us entertained and relaxed all the time. The cabin was excellent and we love sitting on the balcony to watch the gorgeous sunset. The bay was incredible and definitely the highlight of the trip. Service onboard was great and everyone tried hard to please guests and take care of their requests. Although the price was high, it was well worth every penny. highly recommended!
We celebrated our anniversary on the cruise. The room was fantastic and beautifully decorated. Our butler Brian did an excellent job. He was very attentive and took good care of us. The food was generous with 7-8 courses per meal. The cocktails were brilliant. However, drinks were expensive overall. We had a nice caving tour and fun kayaking and swimming in the bay. Cooking class was good but could be something different. The staff also made a video of us by drone which was awesome. It was a perfect time in Halong Bay.
Pros: The view of the bay, the staff, multiple-course meals, new vessel with most updated facilities and services, varied activities. Cons: quality of food could be better, more options for vegans, the air-conditioning in our cabin was not very good.
The bay was breathtaking and food was 10/10. The lunch and dinner were delicious and eye-catching. There were plenty of activities such as kayaking, swimming, biking, cooking demonstration and modern facilities for relaxing such as golf, sauna, spa, jacuzzi pool. A special thanks to Tommy and Harry for their great service. All the staff were friendly and went above and beyond.
My husband and I book 1 night on Elite of the Seas. The staff could not do better for us. They were very hospitable and helpful from start to finish. Our Senior Suite Premium has all amenities we need. The highlights of the trip were the sumptuous meals and spectacular scenery. However, 1 night was short as you only stayed on board for nearly 24 hours and the boat did not cruise very far to the ocean. 2-night could be better.
My family had 2 nights on Elite of the Seas. The welcome at the port was a bit chaotic but the program went smoothly after that. The scenery was fabulous and the ship included all state of the art facilities such as a swimming pool, mini golf, sauna and spa, bar. Taking photos by drone was a bonus. Our cabin was very clean and luxurious. The bed and pillow were upscale and soft. Thank you to the team!
The food was brilliant. Every dish was tasty and beautifully presented. We had an 8-course dinner which was way too much. Activities were diversified and well organized. The staff was very friendly and well-behaved. Would certainly recommend it to everyone
Questions and Answers (4)
Hi, several questions related to Elite of the seas: Depending on the departure date, it will be 2D/1N or a 3D/2N, correct? Willing to start our cruise on the 30th, what will be the duration in our case? Furthermore, how to accomodate 2 adults and 2 kids. We'll have to take 2 rooms or some rooms are big enough to add extra bed? Thanks
@Fauchille, You can book your trip on the 30th for either 2 days or 3 days. Both 2-day and 3-day guests will go on Elite of the Seas at the same time. However, the 3-day guests will start the excursions by a speed boat at around 10 am and only return to the main vessel at around 4:30 pm.
As for accommodation, if your kids are under 11 years old, you can book a cabin with an extra bed (1 shares the bed with parents). Otherwise, you can book 2 cabins with connecting doors for more comfort. Regards,
Hello, we are looking to book the elite of the seas from the 27.11.23 till the 29.11.23 (3days, 2 nights). But our flight from BKK TG560 arrives at 09:35 at Hanoi Int. Airport. Do you think it is enough time to arrive at time to check at the boat? Can you tell me when the boad leaves the harbour. Many thanks
@Kleber, if your flight arrives at 9:35 am, we are afraid that you do not have enough time to make a cruise on the same day. It takes around 2.5 hours from Hanoi International Airport to Halong and most cruise departs from 12:00 - 12:15 pm including Elite of the Seas Cruise. Besides, guests need to be ready at the port no later than 11:45 am for check-in procedure. As a result, we recommend you take the cruise the next day or manage to change your flight earlier if possible. Regards,
