Highly recommended

There were 4 of us and we booked 2 Balcony Suite connecting on the first deck. Our cabins include a private balcony and ensuite bathroom with tub and shower. Fewer cabins are the reason why we picked Orchid Classic as we had more private space to relax onboard. The staff offered excellent service. Special thanks to Lily, David, and Stella for their kindness and hospitality.

From start to finish, things went well organized. The team worked professionally and they were very friendly and dedicated. The cave was small yet it was a nice visit. Kayaking was so much fun and fishing squid was exciting. Food was incredibly delicious. We must remember this trip for our whole life. Thanks a lot.

Orchid Classic was a true luxury getaway. The boat was beautifully decorated in traditional style. There are only 14 cabins and we felt it was a perfect capacity for a relaxing trip. Food, cabin, and staff are all superb. Thank you!

My family with 2 kids (3 and 5 years old) traveled to Halong for 2 days 1 night. Our cabin was spacious and fully appointed. The balcony and windows were nice. Food was amazing and they had food for kids as well. Itinerary was interesting with plenty of activities. The staff was welcoming and helpful with the kids. We have nothing to complain about this trip! Thanks Orchid cruise.

My boyfriend and I chose 2 nights since we want to explore more. Lots of activities are included such as visiting a cave, kayaking, swimming, cooking class, biking, exploring a village, etc. Every activity followed a timetable which was a bit tight. The transfer from the dock to the mother boat was long (30 minutes) and not very comfortable. Delicious meals and friendly staff were 2 pluses of Orchid Class. The view was outstanding yet there were many crowds and you may see litter on the bay.

We booked 2 nights on Orchid Classic. Food and drinks on the main boat were ok yet the lunch on the day boat was not very good. Drinks were expensive. The staff was hospitable and the guide did a great job. The scenery was unparalleled. The trip to the village by bike and kayaking was interesting.

The program was fully packed so you may find it rushed and lacking of relaxing time if you join all activities. The food was nicely presented and tasty. The staff made my trip with a birthday celebration for dinner. Really appreciate that. Eric and Rum were the best. Everyone went the extra mile to please guests. Thank you so much!

Me and my husband love the classical style so Orchid Classic was the one we chose. The boat looks almost like the photos since it has been operating for years. The jacuzzi pool was nice for a dip. The staff was friendly and welcoming, Our cabin was clean and tidy. We had full amenities provided such as a safe, wardrobe, bathrobe, slippers, toiletries, tub,... The balcony was good to watch the bay. We would recommend Orchid Cruise to my friends.
