Overnight cruise, deliberately chose the Petit White Dolphin vessel as it only has 4 cabins (so 8 guests) and this was a great choice as we anchored overnight in a little cove on our own for the night as the bigger boats couldn't access it. Activities were exactly as described and the food was amazing (and lots of it). The staff were fabulous - they were attentive, accommodating and a bit of fun as well! Overall the tour is excellent value for money for the service you get but the only reason I haven't rated it as excellent as coffee, tea and water are provided free with breakfast but would rather a little less food and free coffee, tea and water through the trip - both parties win!! Overall this is a great experience and we are looking forward to winning the lottery as we want to book this boat out for an amazing experience with our close friends (would be a fabulous way to celebrate!!)

Our group was allocated this tour on our itenery as part of our tour of Vietnam, it was a very pleasant experience the food was great and there was so much of it, could have toned it down a bit and had some sandwiches or similar for lunch instead of a hot meal, the day program was enjoyable, a little too much for older folk with poor mobility, need to work on the transfer from boat to land as it can be a little tricky need a plank to walk on this would make it easier, the rooms were better than I expected and bigger than I thought, the cost of drinks were a bit pricey and cold have been more reasonable price but you do find that on cruises OOF all types, would consider going this again when we revisit the country

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
My husband and I were onboard for one night, the ship was great, staff were so attentive and the food was SO GOOD ( almost too much of it )
We did a cave tour, kayaking, spring roll making and went and visited the famous floating villages... all of which was made even more fun by our guide Nam.

My parents and I took the three day cruise with White Dolphin and loved everything about it.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and funny and made our time on the boat really enjoyable.

There were plenty of activities and a comfortable communal area when the weather wasn't ideal for being outside. We swam, kayaked, visited caves and learnt how to make spring rolls.

The food was amazing! Every meal had loads of tasty dishes that we could never finish. It was a seafood lovers delight and chicken, pork and vegetarian options for those that aren't.

Nam was an excellent, knowledgeable guide that kept us informed and entertained.

I would certainly recommend White Dolphin cruises to anyone heading to Halong Bay.

The Halong Bay cruise was part of our package through SViet Travel. It was a one night cruise we did with another couple. As first timers to Vietnam we had no idea what to expect. Well it was just fantastic. The boat only held only 16 people and was far from new, but that didn't matter one bit. It was clean and comfortable and we were lucky to have some really friendly and interesting people on with us. Being a smaller boat gave it a more personal feel I think. Firstly, must say the tour guide 'Nam' was awesome. What a great person to take the cruise. Super friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and always smiling. The rest of the crew were great as well, despite having a little less English than Nam. The food too was fantastic. Lucky for us as well the weather good and sea very calm. All in all a really relaxing and memorable time in beautiful Halong Bay.

Ngam & his colleagues of White Dolphin cruises gave us a memorable trip of Halong Bay that will remain etched in our memory for years to come. I feel a smaller ship (like the one we travelled in) with a capacity to host only 16 people is actually just perfect to enjoy the calm & serenity of the beautiful Ha Long Bay. We got lucky thought....that night there were 6 guests including us, and the whole boat was OURS!!!!. For a seafood fanatic, this is the right place to be. Fresh crabs, clams, oysters, fish, prawns, squids and the works cooked by the in house chef was super delicious and almost had a home like feel to it.

Loads of activities on board for you to engage in or one can choose to just relax and soak in the beauty of a magical sunset on a sail off the Ha Long Bay.

It's a must for anyone who visits Vietnam!

It was a wonderful Cruise and stay was very well organized. Though the cruise is small with only 4 cabins, it was very clean and comfortable. We were lucky to be the only guests on deck and we felt like we were on a private luxurious boat.
Guide (Nam) was very informative and caring person who took us to the bay, floating village, oyster forms, cultural caves and also for kayaking. The Crew was also friendly and super nice (espcially the caretaker Zung). The chef was great creator of tasty seafood cuisines. Cheers to the team! White Dolphin cruise - Strongly recommendable.
