Have to say was the highlight of our Vietnam trip ! Boat was of good size, balcony room great . Your guides very friendly and informative. We were worried how it would all go after booking from Australia . We used vietnam tours to book and it all worked out great . Highly recommend !

This cruise was perfect...and above is the reason why.

Kind staff and always available to every request: I'm vegetarian, they didn't know about it (our tour agency didn't advise them) but they treated me in the best way possible offering me a lot of beautiful and tasty dishes.
Also, when I mentioned (during this cruise) that was my wife's birthday they were really disappointed because we didn't mention before. And at the end of the dinner they made us a surprise:turned off the light and entered with a really beautiful and good cake! And we could celebrate all together.

Really beautiful places: when you're on the boat you can easily enjoy the breathtaking panorama (and we went there with cloudy and rainy weather).
The caves are something really impressive.

Cooking class is funny: we learned how to make a perfect spring roll.

A short visit to Pearl Farm (where, if you are interested, they show you how they grow pearls implanted directly in the oysters) and then half an hour with the kayak. Is really easy to go with it, two seats, the sea there is really calm, so don't worry and do it.

Room was clean and in good condition (air conditioning is in it also).

Food was really good: we had (in order), lunch, fresh fruits in the afternoon, dinner, breakfast, final lunch.

Prices on board are cheap (you have to pay for your drink) but they give you (in the bedroom) water for free, if you want you can drink that!

Don't go there for the sunbathing, please go to another place for it, go to Puglia (Italy), Canarie...whenever you want, but don't expect to have a perfect beach, equipped, without people. Of course is crowdy, the beach is not too big and is not really equipped. But I hope that you are thinking this cruise not for sunbathing but to see that wonderful places.
Don't expect five stars cruise: is a little boat (I think 7 rooms) and when you are on the deck of the ship you can see (and hear) other more expensive boats that have music, parties ...
Wi fi is only in the dining room and not in every single bedroom, but, again, if you go there not to really enjoy that places you need to choose other type of holiday (or other boat).

Highly recommended!

We were expecting a luxurious vessel to greet us on our arrival, however, we were not expecting the exterior to look like something that came out of a horror movie (Anaconda, etc.) But, don't be fooled by what you see on the outside, the exterior was more pleasing to the eyes with a rustic feel to it.

Once on the cruise, we were greeted by a staff of 2 people with all smiles, we might have failed to get their names, but they are surely the most hospitable crew I have witnessed. They gave us welcome drinks, and snacks before we had our lunch. It was surprisingly an okay meal with a bonus of additional rice (being the Asians that we are), that's free of charge!

After the meal, it was time to check-in to our cabins. It offered a more cozy feeling and smelled surprisingly good. Then shortly after, our tours started.

Our group was handled by hiro (he didn't gave us his last name), and was also accommodating with all our questions, and you can tell that he is very experienced and knowledgeable on the things that he is explaining.

The tour itself (Overnight cruise, tourist spots, etc. were something of a different experience for us as a family. I would definitely recommend this!
