We had so much fun on our Overnight Cruise of Halong Bay and saw a lot. At night the other boats around us increased the atmosphere of our trip. The cabins were very nice, the crew were fantastic and the food was great. On our table we had myself who has coeliac disease, another person with coeliac disease plus lactose intolerance and a vegan. We were all catered for admirably and had ample amounts of delicious food.

Booked via intrepid tours this was a fantastic trip. We had the smallest boat that this company has. There were 12 of us in this trip. All the staff were very welcoming and professional from our lovely guide Hà to the chefs. Food particularly exceeded our expectations in every way. Morning tai chi from the captain, trip to a cave, kayaking,stunning scenery

Great excursion, from pick up to drop off. We did the 2 day 1 night tour and absolutely loved it. Our driver was awesome and our tour guide very knowledgeable. The boat was clean, spacious and comfortable. The meals were plentiful- you will NOT go hungry on this tour. The food was delicious and the staff very accommodating to meal preferences and allergies. The itinerary was great with a nice combination of activities and free time. Unfortunately, we could not experience the morning Tai chi, as the instructor was off- but the happy hour, cooking class, and off boat excursions were wonderful. We loved seeing the fishing village- it was so interesting. You definitely get your money's worth on this tour- we recommend everyone visiting Halong Bay to choose Oriental Sails.

Out of the hundreds of cruise options for Halong Bay, this is definitely a good one. I spent a lot of time researching, and found that most of the itineraries were almost exactly the same, no matter which company you went through. The major difference is the price because of how the boat is laid out and what the rooms look like. This boat was smaller, which was nice because we got to know the people on the boat and the rooms were great. They were spacious and the bathrooms were modern and clean with a nice shower.
The food is incredible and never ending. It isn't very Vietnamese. I would actually say it's mostly Chinese, but there is a plethora of seafood, which I loved. Drinks on board are $5 a pop, but they had a happy hour where you could get 3 for the price of 2, so that's not bad. We met a great group of people and probably sold the boat out of wine, but we had a great time squid fishing and singing karaoke!
Every person on our boat did the excursion to the fishing village/pearl farm. It was a good experience to see the lifestyle of the people who live in the bay versus simply kayaking. It was really interesting to learn how they fertilize and harvest pearls. The cave the following day was great. They took us to a smaller, less crowded cave, which I really appreciated.
Overall, Halong Bay is something that you must do if you visit Vietnam, and I would highly recommend booking your tour with Oriental Sails! Thanks for the great time.
