Editor Reviews


- The guide and staff are friendly and helpful.
- The food comes in an abundance.
- The cruise has an outstanding entertainment program.


- The boat needs an update and the air-conditioner in the rooms doesn’t work properly.
- There is a little storage space in the room and the bathroom is smelly.
- Drinks and water bottles (which should have been included in the price) are overpriced.
- Swimming and kayaking are boring and the water isn’t clean.

Bottom Line

Halong Camellia is a medium-size ship with enough onboard excitement to keep guests entertained.
