Our guest's experiences (10)
Booked 2 nights/3 days and it was the best choice for us. My boyfriend and I were picked up at the hotel timely and the check in went smoothly. We were transferred by a small boat to embark on the main vessel. The ship itself was clean and chic. Our cabin was lovely, too. It has a balcony and a bathtub. Activities were lots of fun. We loved the biking trip to the village and kayaking on the bay. The cave was small yet a nice experience. All activities were nice such as cooking class, taichi, squid fishing,... The outdoor jacuzzi pool at the bow was a bonus. Can't compliment this trip enough. Thanks to the Orchid Trendy team.
The team was all welcoming and polite. The cruise manager Nilo was our favorite. The tour guide was also very informative and helpful. Food was incredible. The cabin was spacious and fully equipped. The tour on the island was peaceful. The bay was beautiful but rubbish issues could be seen. Activities after dinner could be more varied.
My family stayed for 1 night. There were both pros and cons. Pros: The view was good, the staff was friendly, cabins were nice. Cons: Check-in and check-out at the dock were chaotic, wifi was not good, food quality was unstable with some meals really good and some average.
Cuisine was fantastic. We love every meal, especially the dinner set menu. Happy Hour was great cuz you will see the price of drinks was pretty high. The room was comfortable and included a full range of amenities. Staff was so helpful and friendly. They set up rose petals in our rooms since it was our honeymoon. We also had an exceptional dining table for dinner. Really appreciate that! Definitely come back again!
3 days/2 nights could be considered carefully. The 3-day is indeed much more relaxing and less rushed than the 2-day, but if you are not an active person and cannot do kayaking or cycling, 2-day is enough. And be noticed that you will spend most of the time on the second day on a day boat (without rooms) for excursions and cannot access your cabin to relax. The village was normal and not much to see. However, Halong (or Lan Ha) Bay was really charming and tranquil. Food on the main boat was amazing and staff was courteous and went above and beyond. Overall a nice time but 1 night is enough!
Strongly recommend this trip! Orchid Trendy was a nice boat with modern facilities and a full range of service. There is an outdoor jacuzzi, a spa and sauna, stylish restaurant and bar onboard. Food was of good quality and quantity. Ginny and Nilo went the extra mile to guarantee our comfort. Thank you very much!
The trip was faultless. We had a wonderful 2 days on Lan Ha Bay. The scenery was extraordinary. Service on board was excellent. Highly recommended.
We had 2 days on Orchid Trendy. The staff was very nice and caring. The interior was well maintained and had a chic design. Our Deluxe cabin included air-con, private bathroom with bath amenities, and a stunning view from the floor to ceiling glass window. Food was varied yet some dishes were dry and could be more flavorful.
The vessel was anchored far from the dock so we had to take a shuttle boat for around 30 minutes to embark onboard. Our cabin was pretty and the private balcony had a table and chairs for sightseeing. The staff was excellent and super friendly. Food was generous and delicious. The drinks were overpriced but we could make use of Happy Hour (buy 1 get 1).
The trip to Halong Bay was the trip of our lifetime. The vessel was traditional and elegant. As soon as we stepped on the ship, things were great and exceeded our expectations. The cabin was very nice, bright, the best view, and the bed was comfy. We visited a cave on Cat Ba island and went swimming around the boat on the first day and kayaking on the second day. Staff was amazing. A shout out to the guide and cruise manager. Only downside: the check-in area at the port could be improved, a bit small and not very well organized.
