“ Managed by Orchid Cruise, Peony has taken outstanding features of its line to become the best mid-range cruise on Halong Bay. The cruise is well-known for its innovative ship design and exceptional 5-star services. In addition to this, since its debut, Peony smashed other lines of the same size as the first 4-star cruise ship to operate in Lan Ha Bay.”
