Perfect overnight boat trip
Jul 2020
During the Covid-19 outbreak of 2020, we enjoyed an absolutely smokin' deal on the Lan Ha Bay overnight trip. Ha Long Bay is so crowded these days - go to Lan Ha to find wide-open spaces. All the staff on our cruise were incredibly accommodating and attentive to our every need. The kayaking, swimming, and sea-caving were fun activities; our cabin was one of the nicest hotel rooms we've ever had; and the scenery was, of course, perfect. Strong endorsement here, friends.

Great offer, great service!
Oct 2020
I happened to see Eracruise on Tripadvisor and really wanted to write a yacht review. My family and I joined the Era cruise at the end of 2020. I booked the basic room type, however near the departure date, the boat side called and told me that Family room was empty so they would upgrade for me. That's a really great offer.
The trip is very nice, the food wass perfect for both adults and children. The most impressive plus point was the extremely attentive staff on board. Thanks for the trip

Amazing Tour- must do!
Era cruises helped make our stay in Vietnam easy and wonderful. We came during the coronavirus outbreak and they were very attentive to the health and safety of their guests, we never worried. We were planning to use another cruise but our hotel said Era was the best and they were Right! Era arranged our transfer so we were seamlessly picked up and returned to hanoi. Our room was beautiful and clean, and we felt attended to whenever needed. The food, activities, and happy hour were wonderful. Special thank you to Mai, Son, and all the staff!

Highly recommended!
Booked through their website and everything was as announced and expected. It is a new company (2years), the cruiseboat is in very good condition and the staff will make everything for you to feel good and enjoy the cruise. The food is good (the vietnamese lunch better than the western deluxe dinner). The cabins are huge, very clean and very comfortable. It is very well organized (hotel pickup, shuttle, visits and onboard events).

Excellent Ha Long cruise
Feb 2020 • Couples
Just returned from month long tour of Southeast Asia.
The tour company we used booked us on an Era cruise.
We were NOT disappointed!’ The ship is very nicely appointed and the staff were wonderful. Lunch was excellent as was breakfast. Dinner was just OK and could have been better.
In the afternoon, we anchored off one of the thousands of islands. We were ferried over to a small beach for swimming and/or kayaking. Unfortunately the weather was overcast but the water was warm and we had a good time.
There was a fun hands on cooking demonstration in the evening with cocktails before dinner.
The next morning an early morning excursion to a cave was offered. We did not participate as we wanted to relax so cannot comment on it.
We were booked in a “Terrace king suite”. It was fabulous!
Larger than any penthouse suite we’ve been in on ocean cruises. Large king bedroom and private veranda. A huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub plus a large walk in shower.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would not hesitate to recommend their cruise line.

First class service!
Me and my wife went on a 2 day 1 night cruise and were pleasantly surprised by the first class customer service that was provided to us by the entire staff at Era cruises. From assisting us to obtain the right visas to Vietnam and transportation from/to Hanoi to surprising us with a special anniversary cake and room decorations, it was a memorable experience. I’d recommend Era cruises without hesitation.

Amazing ERA Cruises on Howlong Bay
I read many reviews, including the dire review recently left by someone from the USA. All I can say is that my daughter and I thought the entire cruise was a highlight of our 3 week tour of Vietnam. The staff are amazing and as friendly as you would wish. The food was the best I’ve eaten in Vietnam. The kayaking was a fun experience and the squid fishing and cooking classes fun filled. The family room at the front of the boat was massive and the views spectacular. Everyone on board went out of their way to make the guests feel special. In short, the trip was wonderful. Ours was cut short by the decision of the Vietnamese Government to suspend all cruises on a Howlong Bay due to the coronavirus. ERA refunded 60% of my money which was more than fair, given I’d had half my cruise already. They offered free spa services as we went back to port and gave me my money in cash, without fuss, at the port office. In short - go to Howlong Bay, it is amazing. Don’t look anywhere else, book ERA

Over priced and not very clean
Jan 2020 • Friends
We had a pretty bad experience. The photos portray luxury and high quality but it is anything but that. Rooms were dirty. The cave tour was great but that was about it. Food is cheap and the drinks might not even contain alcohol. I was ready to leave about 15 minutes after we got there. Some of the staff was great but some were rude. Would never spend that type of money for such a bad interpretation of elegance.
