“Mega Spectacular Incredibleness”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Visiting Halong bay is one of the best decisions I've ever made. It is impossibly beautiful, you can hardly believe you are still on the same planet you live on.
The tour company we used was great for 2 reasons. Firstly because our host, David, was charming and affable. Secondly because the location they took us for swimming and kayaking was isolated, peaceful and incredibly serene. We ended up kayaking by ourselves in an area where we couldn't see any other people or boats at all.

“Great escape”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

From our agent Linh who recommended this company, to the boat and the staff, and tour guide David this was a great escape. We booked 2day/1night and was full of activities, all optional. Kayaking in a remote area with no other boats around was exclusive to Royal Palace Cruises. Same with the swimming. The food on board was tasty and plentiful. Their timings for pick up and drop off where pretty spot on...I would recommend this tour. We were on a boat called Royal Palace. Total 14 rooms and not overcrowded like some of the other boats ...

“Amazing Cruise. Bus there is interesting.”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

My partner and I went on this cruise (2 day, 1 night) as a romantic getaway and it was the highlight of our Asian vacation. The cruise director, Alex, and organiser, David, made sure we were happy and catered for the entire time.

There are plenty of activities to partake in but all of them are optional. There was another couple on our boat that preferred to just chill out on the deck, whilst we preferred to kayak, swim, venture through the caves, fish etc.

The bus there was a little scary, but that probably has more to do with the traffic around Hanoi than anything. Just sit so you can't see out the front windscreen and you'll be fine.

“Excellent boat, very dangerous drive from Hanoi.”
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The boat is great! The people working there is always nice and the place is impressive. My only concern about Halong Bay is how sustainable it is for the environment to have 500 big tourists ships everyday. The bad side: the bus to get there from Hanoi included in the tour. I lived in Argentina and Brazil were drivers are quite reckless but I have never experienced such a fear of dying as in the 150 km from Hanoi to Halong bay. All the relax and joy of the boat tour almost vanished by the stress of seeing many times trucks heading straight to us which we dodged in the last second.

“Great Crew & A Memorable Time”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

From the moment we walked on the boat, my family felt welcomed and cared for. The boat was clean and the staff were not only helpful, but they were fun to talk to. Tony and Lien made sure we always had drinks and were always so pleasant to be around. The cruise manager Alex was great! He made sure everyone knew what activities were happening and it was clear he was trying his best to make sure everyone on the boat had the best time possible. I would definitely recommend this cruise! The boat itself is a traditional wood boat and absolutely stunning!

“Amazing Experience and Great Crew”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My family of four booked a one night cruise on this cruise line because they offered a smaller boat more intimate looking boat and we definitely made the right decision! We were greeted by a very friendly staff...rose petals and all. My husband and I had one of two suites in the front of the boat. It comes with a sitting area and a small outside deck. Well worth it. Our grown kids had a cabin that was small, but still very nice with two beds. The meals were delicious. Very gourmet. Alex, the person in charge of our cruise, worked well with everyone so that any food issues were not a problem and everyone was well cared for. He was always available and very helpful with any question you had. His attention to every detail was amazing! You always knew just what the schedule was. We also got to know the bartender, Tony, who was so friendly. He was always ready to take care of of us. We also enjoyed Lien, one of the crew, who always had a smile on her face. So helpful and so friendly. Big hugs to the crew when we left! I highly recommend this cruise line. You will have a wonderful time.

“Lovely cruise”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a lovely cruise in Halong Bay with the Royale Palace. We had the room with ocean view, the room was a bit smaller than it looked like on the brochure, but that didn't matter. Halong Bay is a must see when visiting Vietnam. The cruise was good, not super high quality but defenitely good value for money. The food was very good, You surely didn't starve and good quality. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
