Editor Reviews

Pros

Aphrodite cruise is beautiful and clean. Cabin rooms are gorgeous with a bath overlooking the water. Very comfortable bed and plenty of space in the room. The quality of food, especially vegetarian meals are outstanding. Staff are great, making guests feel super welcome.

Cons

No free WIFI in rooms. The wine is overpriced ($100/ bottle). The itinerary takes visitors to the most amazing parts of Halong Bay but all visitors do the same excursions making the destinations full of tourists.

Bottom Line

On Aphrodite Cruise, you will be treated like family with cozy rooms, a wide range of food options, a treasure trove of activities, and family favorites.
