Went on the cruise with a group of friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was better than expected despite less than ideal weather conditions. Tom was a great guide and was very knowledgable about the area. All onboard staff were also friendly and ensured we had a great time.
The cruise was phenomenal! Our guide, Tam, did a great job. We would highly recommend requesting your cruise with Tam. He was very informative and told us about the history of the area and the bay. He also led us and was very caring as we went on multiple adventures including kayaking and spelunking! He also organized Tai Chi at sunrise for us. We really appreciated how Tam provided both apresonalized and customer focused approach to our boat tour! Thank you Tam!!

Just returned from a great few days cruising in Bai Tu Long Bay on the Paloma. From beginning to end this trip was very well organised with friendly,helpful and attentive staff. The ship was very comfortable with lovely cabins, good air con and hot showers. The food was excellent and in abundance...you will never be hungry on the Paloma! We enjoyed the activities - caves, kayaking,fishing village visit,beach BBQ etc. Would definately recommend this cruise and going to the quieter Bai Tu Long Bay. Just wish it had been a bit warmer to enjoy the lovely outside spaces on board.
Unfortunately our stay on the boat was cut short due to a typhoon which was very upsetting as we were having such a good time and could have stayed there for days. We couldn't criticise the cruise at all the scenery was to die for, the traditional Vietnamese food was so tasty (not so much when we learnt and cooked our own authentic spring rolls) and the staff just topped it off especially Harry, Justin and Nam who were full of laughs. This cruise boat company is a perfect way to see Halong Bay and is highly likely to be the highlight of your trip!!!!
Booked at the last minute and could not have been happier. Staff exceeded expectations. The room was clean and comfortable and the food was great. The staff went above and beyond with our 10 year old as well. Would definitely recommend this cruise for Halong Bay adventures!
This is the first time i am overnight on boat. Great excursions, food was great, cabin so good, views un forget able, tours fantastic. pearl farm, cave, beach, floating village, staff and guides were great.
I travelled with my partner and her mother and we did an overnight stay in Halong Bay with Paloma. The service was excellent right from the pick up in Hanoi all the way to our return. They have plenty of activities and if you want to relax, you can do that too. It's not really for backpackers and partying, but rather couples/familes or solo travellers. We really enjoyed our cruise and the staff are excellent, especially Hoang (Harry) and Minh. I would recommend booking a trip with Paloma.
