The UniCharm cruise for 3 days was wonderful. The guides were great on all three days. Pumpkin was fantastic and happy to help. The cruise took us through some beautiful scenery and we loved the Kayaking in day 1. The boat is very new with lovely cabins and the top deck is great for sunbathing. The only thing that could have improved the trip was coffee on tap all day rather than only the morning. Highly recommended!

We did the 3 day 2 night cruise on the Unicharm with Vega Travel. We chose it because of the included pick up from Hanoi and the activities.

The pick up process was easy. A few hours later (bus, ferry, bus, boat) we were on the Unicharm.

The boat’s accommodation was fine. We had room 202... it had 2 balconies at the back of the boat (which we never used as we were too busy having fun doing the activities or drinking with the other guests.

The trip included kayaking, squid fishing (caught nothing), a hike, visiting caves, a short visit to the city of Cat Ba, a bike ride and cookery classes. We did everything. The bike ride was a little manufactured but everything else was a lot of fun.

The food was great.

Drink was ok value (happy hour 3 beers for 100,000 VDN or a glass of wine 115,000). Everything else was included.

The staff are also brilliant. All helpful and very hospitable.

The stars of the show were our guide Pumpkin and our fellow guests, the Beatles (4 travellers from the UK). We were so lucky to have Pumpkin. He was fun, sarcastic, kind and knowledgeable. He did so much for us. We played shuttlecock with him and the locals, had our picture drawn (and we did Pumpkin too) and were treated to him serenading us with a beautiful Vietnamese song. He was the best guide in Vietnam. We were so sad to say bye. He is a credit to his company.

And to our fellow travellers, the Beatles... we miss you already. Thanks for the great times and Pablo.

You won’t be disappointed to go on this tour. It’s great. And Halong Bay is beautiful.

Our family of nine people including my wheelchair bound father, mother with walking stick and three children (7, 8 and 10) had an amazing trip on Ha Long and Cat ba bay. The views from the boat were amazing, the facilities, staff service, trip excursions and food choices were excellent.

We especially enjoyed the kayaking especially to the lagoon, trip to the cave and the bike trip. And the cooking demonstration on the boat was fun.

All the guides and staff on board were good but particularly excellent was Hung (aka Pumpkin) who went the extra mile every day in helping my mother (usually carrying her bag), and teaching my 8 year old son to play Vietnamese happy sack and gifting him his own toy. He was a genuinely kind and engaging person, full of energy and fun.

The food was delicious and varied. We particularly enjoyed the plentiful breakfasts and evening barbecue buffets. We loved the Vietnamese fresh salads and spring rolls.

The highlights were the kayaking trips - especially to the lagoon, the trip to the cave, bike trip through lovely countryside, cooking demonstration, and chilling out on the boat through amazing world heritage site scenery. The scenery was fantastic from everywhere on the boat - even from our bedrooms.

When there was a change in plans so our 16 seater bus to the airport only met us after the ferry - the manager ensured his son, who also worked with the company went personally with us to the airport to ensure all went well which we very much appreciated.

Only suggestions: on the bike trip my first bike brakes did not work so well but Hung managed to change the bike for me to a better bike with good functioning brakes half way through. So check carefully before leaving the bike place. Especially as there are a few steep slopes along the way.

The driver-owner of the private bus to the airport had removed most of the car seats from his bus “for comfort” reasons. We explained that security-wise in our countries this isn’t acceptable and ordinarily with our young children we would not travel on transport without seat belts but as we needed to get to the airport we had to go. So check in advance that any private transport to the airport has seatbelts.

Sadly the water in some parts of Ha long bay was affected (like the rest of the world) with some plastic in the water. But our guide Hue (aka Hugh Jackman) on the kayak trip brought a white sack and encouraged us to help pick some up if we wanted to do so - which was a great initiative.

None of these points detracted from making this trip a real once in a lifetime experience. And we would not hesitate coming back to the Unicharm 3 day cruise (booked through Vega travels). We paid extra to stay on board Unicharms boat the whole time - and it was well worth doing that. A bit of luxury we appreciated.

We’ve just finished our 3 day stay on the Unicharm and it was wonderful. All the staff were very accommodating, the rooms were beautiful and clean and the food was very good. Our main guide, Pumpkin, was brilliant and was full of energy and fun. We had my 65 year old mum with us and he helped her on the day trips which was great.

Re the activities, the kayaking and swimming was great fun, but getting back in the kayak was quite difficult as there is no shore to help you. The hiking was fabulous, however a word of advice, it was very difficult and the “1km” description is quite misleading. You will need to scramble up and down rocks, so approach with caution. The cycling was amazing, very laid back and really nice to see such an isolated little village.

The views on the boat were constantly sublime, and the trip was an absolute pleasure. We had the privilege of being there for their 1 year anniversary, so there was a party I’m n board which was really nice.

All in all, this was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend it.

We really enjoyed our 3 day 2 night cruise on board Unicharm. It’s a long trip from Hanoi to get there but worth it for the peaceful views of Lan Ha Bay. Kayaking and swimming in a lagoon was great fun, the food on board was delicious. It’s buffet style so great if you have any food intolerances as easy to tailor what you eat yourself. The food is the same both nights which is understandable but would have been great to have something a bit different on the second night, even just one dish and also more veggie options at the BBQ dinner.

The Cat Ba Island day trip was a highlight of the cruise for us. Loved the group we went with and most of all our guide Pumpkin - I see other reviews have mentioned Pumpkin too, he really is so genuine, fun and helpful. He really listens and speaks brilliant English. The hike is hard work in the heat - take plenty of water and wear cool clothes! The views from Cannon Fort after are breathtaking.

We didn’t make the bike ride on day 3. A 7am start was too early for us with all the travelling we had ahead of us that day. I’d highly recommend going on the top deck for the cruise back to the port, passing all of the gorgeous limestone kraffs is just stunning.

This cruise is great value for money, packed full of activities with lovely food and a really nice boat. Highly recommend.

We are a family of 4 with one young child and one teenager. We chose this cruise from all of the other offerings as it had lots of activities on offer and everything was included in the price. We booked directly through Unicharm as this included all of the transfers and the price was the same.

We were a little worried that cruising on Ha Long Bay would feel too touristy but fortunately this cruise starts and finishes on Cat Ba Island and mostly cruises in Lan Ha Bay, which is right next door to Ha Long Bay and extremely quiet. We never felt like we were in a tourist trap - the cruise was extremely relaxing with every need catered for and the boat and rooms are absolutely beautiful. The area is absolutely breathtaking.

We opted for the 3 day/2 night cruise and were very glad we did. Early pick up from our hotel in Hanoi, an entertaining drive with Pumpkin as our host to the boat transfer point (including a bonus temple visit) and a smooth check in. Delicious buffet lunch, relaxing whilst cruising, kayaking in the afternoon followed by happy hou and BBQ dinner. Mountain hiking in Cat Ba National Park the next day as well as 2 cave visits and fabulous bun cha lunch at a local restaurant on Cat Ba Island, option for more kayaking in the afternoon and a different dinner menu on the second night but we enjoyed the BBQ so much that we chose it again. Beautiful, easy cycling trip the next morning followed by brunch and more cruising back to port.

Our host (Huei) was absolutely fabulous and so helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better cruise. Highly recommended.

Just had an amazing experience on Unicharm boat with our guide Quang.
The boat was beautiful and very clean.
The captain took a route that was not very busy so the scenery was more enjoyable The staff was phenomenal and so was every meal we had.

We loved every minute of our trip and highly recommend the excursion for anyone looking to explore Ha Long Bay.
