Excellent Cruise
Apr 2019
Excellent cruise in Halong Bay. Athena has several boats and the one we went on was named Athena Elegance Cruise. Everything was fantastic including transportation from Hanoi, food and activities. The food included was lunch, dinner and breakfast and was very good. Activities included: kayaking, night squid fishing and caving. The service was exceptional. I would recommend this cruise. Pricing was reasonable. We booked on their website.

A wonderful experience on Halong bay
Travelling with Athena Cruises was a wonderful way to experience Halong Bay. The Athena Elegance was a very comfortable ship with luxury inclusions such as balconies and spa baths with views. Despite the amount of ships on the bay Athena made it feel like we were mostly on our own. The kids loved the cooking demonstration and squid fishing and didn’t want the cruise to end. Staff were very attentive and Cruise Manager Tim and his wife Jessica were delightful. Best of all it appears that Athena treat their staff well. Visiting the caves was quite crowded but staff managed this very seamlessly and Tim went out of his way to make us (and people from other cruises) enjoy the experience. Highly recommend cruising with Athena!

Great trip
Oct 2018 • Friends
We did the one night cruise whilst touring Vietnam on reflection I wish we had booked for longer. This is from a person who doesn’t like cruising! We booked a deluxe double and we had a small outside balcony. If you like sailing but don’t like crowds and comfort and space this fits all those needs. The ship only has 32 rooms with a/c and showers. The staff are helpful and service was great. The food was excellent with plenty of choices,they noted and looked after my food allergies. And finally the beautiful location with wonderful views and activities made it a great trip.

The highlight of our holiday
Oct 2018 • Family
We went on the Athena Elegance cruise with a large family group of 9 people including 4 children aged 6, 8, 10 and 12. Tim our cruise director was awesome, very friendly and the kids loved him.

The rooms were large and comfortable, everyone was very impressed and it felt like 5 star luxury compared to the other hotels we stayed in during our time in Vietnam. We had connecting rooms on the 2nd floor, and both rooms had a large spa bath.

The food was delicious and the vegetarians in our group had plenty of choice from both the buffet and the extra vegetarian food that came out. We didn't realise we would be getting extra food and had already eaten from the normal buffet when it arrived.

The activités were well organised, the 1 hour of kayaking was a highlight for everyone, and was achievable. Happy hour was about 2 hours long, and included 2 for 1 beers and cocktails before dinner.

The Athena Elegance cruise was the highlight of our 3 week holiday in Asia, I only wish we had done a longer cruise.
