Editor Reviews

Pros

Cabin rooms are beautiful with a hot tub next to a big window. The food is excellent and comes in a variety. The well-planned itinerary takes you to several harder-to-reach locations of Bai Tu Long Bay. BBQ on the beach is very memorable.

Cons

The cruise is quite expensive and only mineral water is free. The food menu is in English only. No free WIFI in all rooms and transfer costs extra. The third day (3D2N) doesn’t offer many activities, just visit Yen Duc village with water puppet show.

Bottom Line

The luxury cruise provides good value for money and is fun-filled with plentiful food, well-organized activities.
